  1. Recently Adopted Heeler - Food Journey

    Dog Food Forum
    One of my dogs gets diarrhea on salmon. It's a pretty rich fish. Maybe switch him to a more common protein like lamb or beef if he wasn't doing well with chicken. My dogs also have better digestion on grain-inclusive foods (I'm guessing "a la veg" is probably grain-free) than on kibbles where...
  2. Teaching puppy that former family member poses threat

    Dog Training Forum
    I'm not trying to be snarky, but you're an apex predator and your dog is a baby housepet. It's your job to protect her, not vice versa. A labrador retriever against a grown human male is not a fair fight even if the dog did have the will to fight, which would be really unusual for a lab. My...
  3. Muzzle's ok? Or last resort? Destructive dog

    Dog Training Forum
    I wouldn't leave a dog in a muzzle unattended. Seems like a choking risk to me. Have you tried crate training the pit?
  4. Dog Hepatitis

    Dog Health Questions
    Have you tried other foods besides cream cheese? My dogs are crazy for bananas and eggs (not necessarily in combination, lol) both of which would be pretty easy to hide a pill in. There's also a commercial product called "pill pockets" that might work.
  5. Bernese Puppy Overbite

    Dog Health Questions
    Issues with bite alignment can be anything from a nothingburger to a serious health problem, depending on what's causing the misalignment and what the prospective outcomes are as the dog's adult dentition comes in. Personally, I'd be wanting a more thorough vet check before accepting receipt of...

  7. Favorite and least favorite breeds

    General Dog Forum
    Minis were the 18th most common registered dog breed in the US in 2017. Standards were the 90th. Giants were the 80th. https://www.akc.org/expert-advice/news/most-popular-dog-breeds-full-ranking-list/ AFAIK it's common for Giant litters to be spoken for, so it's not surprising if you...
  8. Favorite and least favorite breeds

    General Dog Forum
    In the US they are actually the least common of the three Schnauzer varieties.
  9. Favorite and least favorite breeds

    General Dog Forum
    Heh. Someone made a rather unkind comment to me when I came into a new session of dog classes with Jet, because he was walking on the leash like a pinball bouncing around in the machine. (He gets really overexcited about new dogs and new places. We're working on it.) I was just like, yes...
  10. Favorite and least favorite breeds

    General Dog Forum
    A stereotypical newfie is pretty much my ideal dog, both aesthetically and temperament-wise. Unfortunately I'm allergic to fur, so it's a good thing I like most terrier breeds, too. Giant Schnauzers are a good compromise for me - it's too bad they're hard to find in my part of the world. I...
  11. Missing my childhood dog

    Dog Pictures Forum
    Oh my goodness, what a sweet face. Gotta be part pomeranian, I think.
  12. Aggressive Weimaraner

    Dog Training Forum
    Thirded: Step 1, vet check to rule out physical reasons. Step 2, real behaviorist. I know this is not something anyone wants to discuss, but I think that after a severe unprovoked bite like that, euthanasia has to be on the table. If you do determine, after evaluation, that he's too great a...
  13. Looking for Help/Advice

    General Dog Forum
    That's totally a puppy mill. It might be a relatively well-kept puppy mill, but it's a puppy mill. Imagine if you kept a kid locked in a bedroom until he was 10 years old, then suddenly let him out and put him on a normal routine. That's what your pup is experiencing right now. You're...

  15. Purebred puppy stolen from shelter

    General Dog Forum
    What on earth does a shiba inu being stolen from a shelter have to do with lagotto breeders not giving you preference when placing their litters?
  16. Dog Hacking?

    Dog Health Questions
    In my area and given that autumn just passed, I'd be concerned about the possibility of a foxtail awn embedded in the esophagus or back of the mouth. Don't know whether that's a worry in your area, but it's a common issue in dogs in my neck of the woods. I second Jen's advice to return to the vet.
  17. Best friend adopted littermate - risk of littermate syndrome?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I don't think I'd be concerned about littermate syndrome in this situation, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to be alert to the fact that they're likely to hit milestones such as fear periods and sexual maturity around the same times, which has the potential to exacerbate scuffles from normal dog...
  18. Will my mix puppy have long or short hair?

    General Dog Forum
    I think that's pretty common. With clipping having become so much more common than stripping, many mini breeders who don't do conformation aren't really prioritizing "proper" hard coats.
  19. Will my mix puppy have long or short hair?

    General Dog Forum
    Congrats on your new friend! He is ADORABLE. IME this is pretty typical of Schnauzers that are clipped rather than stripped, both the lighter color and the lack of a hard coat, because in the absence of stripping, the undercoat comes to dominate the surface area, and it's pale and fuzzy...
  20. Potty training help

    Dog Training Forum
    My dogs are both trained to eliminate on command and they're just pets. It's useful to be able to tell them to empty the tanks in places and times where it's convenient. I used basically the same approach LeoRose suggested. My adult rescue got it within a few weeks. (I suspect he had been...
