  1. Greenies - my dog stopped liking them, has this happened to anyone else?

    General Dog Forum
    If you're giving them to him every day he could just be bored with them. Are you cutting back on his food because you're giving him greenies? It could be that he's just full.
  2. Pet Insurance - Worth it?

    Dog Health Questions
    My advice is always if you can afford the cost of an emergency then don't bother with pet insurance. You're paying a lot for something that "might" happen and then might not even be fully covered. The exception would be if you bought a breed that has known health issues, then insurance might...
  3. Does it sound like my dog really dislikes me?

    General Dog Forum
    It sounds like he is doing very well and definitely likes you. Some dogs are just not affectionate. We have one dog who is a total cuddle bug and one dog who is not affectionate at all. She is very happy, friendly, and excitable, she's just not affectionate and doesn't like to be "smothered"...
  4. Leaving for work

    Dog Training Forum
    That happened with one of my dogs too. As a puppy he was always used to being in his crate at night (with the door closed and latched). When he was an adult we decided to give him more freedom and leave him in the room where the crate is, so he can still go in if he wants, but is not locked...
  5. Please help before it becomes a problem!

    Dog Training Forum
    I agree with LeoRose too. Never free feed and keep the dogs separated during meal times. You might have success doing as another poster suggested, by keeping them separated and slowing getting closer and closer, but it will take more than days - think months. And it may not work at all. Your...
  6. I have a wierdo dog......

    General Dog Forum
    Kane will sometimes "fake it" too just to please me, haha!
  7. Help me choose a dog breed

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Why not go with a lab? They are great family pets, are good with kids, and easy to train (especially for those with little dog experience).
  8. Any idea what Cooper is mixed with?

    General Dog Forum
    Wow he's beautiful! I'm not sure what else he might be crossed with though.
  9. cat poop problems

    Dog Training Forum
    The only success I had with this was just making sure the dogs couldn't get to the litter box. Make sure the litter box is the enclosed style, with just an opening for the cat to get it. What I did was put the litter box under a desk, with the opening facing the wall. Only leave just enough...
  10. Glowing or light-up discs/balls?

    General Dog Forum
    I have had a couple of dog balls that flash when they bounce. The one they particularly liked, the other they just like okay. I think it was just more ball preference more than the fact that it lit up. But they definitely can see that it flashes. The disadvantage of this type of flashing...
  11. What mix can she be?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    It's really hard to tell when they're so young. How old is she and how much does she weigh?
  12. Muzzle's ok? Or last resort? Destructive dog

    Dog Training Forum
    Crate train her. An 8 hour work day is fine for an adult dog who is crate trained. Just make sure she gets exercise before you leave for work and when you get home. It's better than having her destroy your home and safer for her as well.
  13. what kind of dog do i have?

    General Dog Forum
    It's hard to tell. How old is she and how much does she weigh?
  14. Two dogs trying to adjust to each other

    Dog Training Forum
    I agree with everyone else. Move or keep your dog at your parents' place. These dogs should not be allowed to interact together at all. Did the dog bite you on purpose or did he just miss while trying to get your dog? I'm not sure I would feel safe staying there at all with a dog that bit me.
  15. Peanut butter for dental health

    Dog Health Questions
    Yeah adding a sugar-filled sticky substance to the hard-to-reach places in your dog's mouth just doesn't seem like a good idea to me. If you want to use a natural product you'd be better off with coconut oil. Or make your own with baking soda.
  16. Looking for Help/Advice

    General Dog Forum
    Oh yeah that could be a good idea actually. Let him set the distance and gradually move closer and closer if he's okay with it. Just be aware of other people with dogs, sometimes people let their dogs off leash at parks like that. Or they want to come running over to say hi to your dog...
  17. Favorite and least favorite breeds

    General Dog Forum
    Well said! It's frustrating when people only see that you're struggling to control your dog. They don't see that how he's acting could be 10 times better than how he was 6 months ago. As for my favourite breeds - I really love Weimaraners and German Shorthaired Pointers. But I don't think I...
  18. Looking for Help/Advice

    General Dog Forum
    Definitely not. Give him lots of time to become comfortable with his home and his new owners. You have to earn his trust. After a while, if he is doing well, see if you can arrange a play date with a calm, stable, and friendly dog. One dog. If after several meetings, arrange a play date...
  19. Looking for Help/Advice

    General Dog Forum
    First - did you get him from a reputable breeder? Some puppy mills are disguised as legitimate breeders. That would explain a lot of how your puppy is behaving. Aside from that, you've only had him a few days. He will need time to adjust. Weeks for sure. Let him explore and come around on...
  20. Multiple dogs barking in their sleep

    General Dog Forum
    I've never seen one dog trigger the other dog while they're sleeping. That would be interesting to capture on video.
