  1. Puppy behavior toward other dog = aggressive or normal?

    General Dog Forum
    Thank you! Hard finding play groups in the area...my parent's dogs are either old and grouchy, or just too big (hyper German Shepherd).
  2. Puppy behavior toward other dog = aggressive or normal?

    General Dog Forum
    So I have a little 5-pound yorkie mix, and I just got a 10-pound rough collie pup 3 days ago. The first time the collie tried tackling the yorkie, the yorkie snapped a correction - and the puppy snarled and fought back! I separated them, and the pup acted aggressive and stiff-legged toward the...
  3. How to socialize/excercise an 8-week old pup?

    General Dog Forum
    Just got his first set of vaccines from the breeders. Will not get his second set for almost 4 weeks. So... in the meantime, I'm avoiding parks and pet stores, although the store especially would be great for socializing him to people. People let their dogs off leash all over the...
  4. How to make my dog stop resource guarding me?

    General Dog Forum
    I've been doing that...for months...I don't know what to do anymore besides only hold her if.there's nothing else around.
  5. How to make my dog stop resource guarding me?

    General Dog Forum
    If she's on my lap and my new puppy or baby nephew comes near, she growls. .......
  6. Professional tooth cleaning worth it?

    General Dog Forum
    Also - dog is 5 years old. Another issue is the stress for her. I'd drop her off in the AM, pick her up after work.
  7. Professional tooth cleaning worth it?

    General Dog Forum
    Brought my 5-lb yorkie mix into the vet today. Vet said her back teeth are clean, she can tell I brush them. But the front teeth - loose, gums are receding, tons of calculi. She said I can bring her in for a tooth cleaning, she'd clean the front teeth, remove the loose ones, put her on...
  8. Loose teeth after fight - to vet or not?

    Dog Health Questions
    The issue I'd have with the vet is the general anesthesia she'd need to remove any broken tooth fragments. Hate, hate, hate when a 5-lb dog has to undergo it.
  9. Loose teeth after fight - to vet or not?

    Dog Health Questions
    Pug snapped at my 5-lb yorkie mix while I was picking the pug up. He has horrible underbite, but somehow he managed to get her right on the end of the snout. She started bleeding badly, 'chattering' her teeth, but it soon stopped. Cleaned her up, no injuries except the very front two teeth on...
  10. How old does a puppy have to be until personality develops? Dominance/aggression

    General Dog Forum
    The biggest thing I'm looking for in my rough collie pup is dominance/aggression issues. I have a little terrier mix who grew up with other dogs and isn't dog aggressive, but she wouldn't back down if a big alpha dog tried to be dominant with her. It's a stress I'd rather avoid for everyone's...
  11. Can we do better than the breed selector quizzes?

    General Dog Forum
    Size: Big enough to go skijoring with. Energy level: Ready to get up and go for a 5_mile hike or a 30minute run. Minimum of an hour's walk daily. EXCEPT during...well, certain days of the month. Then we sit inside all day on the couch. If it's super cold or raining - couch. Must get along...
  12. Filling out puppy application forms

    General Dog Forum
    I was in your exact position a year ago. :) Wanted a rough collie pup, filled out an applicaiton and sent it to the breeder, explaining I'd not actually be ready for the puppy until spring 2013. So...a year later, and I'm getting my puppy in a few weeks! Remember to check that the breeder...
  13. Bully sticks or Bladder sticks OK for puppies? And other chews?

    General Dog Forum
    I just remember reading a warning: "Make sure your dog is at least a year old" when looking at some kind of natural chew, think it was a bully stick. I thought maybe puppies can't handle the protein or something. But it doesn't sound like that's the case!
  14. Bully sticks or Bladder sticks OK for puppies? And other chews?

    General Dog Forum
    I'm going to be getting a puppy in a few months...I remember when my current dog was a pup, the only thing that kept me sane was her edible Nylabones specially made for puppies. She'd be totally engrossed for a good 20-30 minutes...and I could get some relaxation time in. :) So now I'm looking...
  15. My dog vs my family?

    General Dog Forum
    Yeah...this, and what Willowy said. f I only got a dog with my family's blessing, I wouldn't even have Belle right now. I know they'll take care of them if I'm in a horrible accident or something. It's the everyday life that's the problem.
  16. "Man, that's an ugly dog." GASP!

    General Dog Forum
    Eh... I look at that pic and see a haircut, not a dog. Do I find that haircut breathtaking? Well, I find it original! Nothing striking about the dog itself, though.
  17. My dog vs my family?

    General Dog Forum
    Right now I have a little 5_pound dog. I take her everywhere, up to my parent's house, sister's house, she goes on the boat with us, etc. Everyone usually forgets.she's there. oon I'll be getting a collie puppy. Everyone in my family has made it clear that he will not be welcomed at their...
  18. Walking too far injures growth plates? And...best time to neuter?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    So when is it safe for a nice rUN or long hike? How can I tell when exactly the bone plates fused? Just when I notice he hasn't' t gotten bigger for a while...?
  19. Walking too far injures growth plates? And...best time to neuter?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Boy. If grass is better than pavement, there' s trails in easy driving distance. I' d always thought 12 months a good age for neutering...not sure what the breeders will think of that though. I don' t want them to not sell me a dog. It' s ridiculous finding a good breeder...
  20. Walking too far injures growth plates? And...best time to neuter?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Getting a collie puppy in spring! I heard that it' s important for med sized breeds to not walk too far as pups or it hurts their growth plates. What is a safe distance to take a pup on hikes/walks? I usually go 5+ miles...would that be too far for a puppy to.walk.safely? Also, the breeders...
