  1. Problems with small adult dog and big puppy getting along

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi guys! Hopefully you can help me with this problem.. I have a little Maltese mix called Moose that's about 6 years old that we adopted at the start of the year. He hadn't been well socialized and could be growly and snappy with other dogs, but since owning him he's settled down a lot and gets...
  2. Puppy or Young Adult

    General Dog Forum
    Ok forum folks, I would greatly appreciate some solid, no-holds barred opinions! I have always had the belief that puppy is a safer way to start to ensure good foundations regarding training and temperament for my family. However I am constantly hearing otherwise. Barring political correctness...
  3. Is it just me? Or are puppies NOT fun? :P

    General Dog Forum
    For all of those who got a puppy and they are now adults. Sit back, relax and think about all the headaches. The broken shoes, the potty training, the bites cuz they didn't know how strong they were. The ENDLESS amount of energy. The "wanting to pull my hair out" moments of frustration... That...
  4. Retraining an Adult Rescue Dog After Traumatic Injury

    General Dog Forum
    Our little Ojo (oh-joe) is a 5-year-old, small mixed-breed dog we adopted while living in South Korea. His heritage is unverified, but believed to be a jindo/westie mix. He lived in wonderful foster homes for two years before he came to us. He was an absolute gem with a few quirks, including...
  5. Training Adult Hound to come?

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 5 year old coonhound that I adopted in December. He was immensely pampered in his old home, and I have been able to get a lot of basic obedience training instilled since. But unless I have food in my hand, he typically ignores me when I command him to come. It's particulary concerning...
  6. New Boxer Friend : Harder than expected!

    Dog Training Forum
    Our Boxer Baboune died this fall, we adopted a new friend, an 18 months Boxer named Fifille. We are a family of five with three children aged 1, 3 and 5 years. I adopted my first Boxer baby, and had then taken care of all his education. She remained still an energetic boxer, though very well...
  7. Please suggest fun activities for the dog on the leash

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I just adopted an adult stray dog. Yes, I know, that's a pretty bad statement to put in in "First Time Dog Owner" forum, but well... The dog has very few problems at the moment. He doesn't know most basic commands, like sit or come. He pulls a leash, but only a bit. But on the other side, it...

  10. 2 years old and still peeing in the house...

    Dog Training Forum
    I know this is long but please read it and help me! Ok, so my shihtzu/maltese dog, Oreo, is 2 years old. He still pees in the house, either in the kitchen or in the basement. It's easy to clean up in the kitchen because of the tiles, but in the basement there is carpet, and it's smells like...
  11. How do you estimate adult weight for a giant breed puppy?

    General Dog Forum
    Just out of curiosity: My Caucasian ovcharka puppy is almost 5 months old (next week he will) and he weighs 35 pounds. And i hear about that theory which states that "multiplying a puppy's 4 month old weight by 2 will give you his estimated adult weight..." But if i follow that theory, my puppy...
