  1. What do you do when it's all just too much?

    General Dog Forum
    I feel like the worst person in the entire world. I love my dog, I really do, but she is draining so much of me. I am her sole owner with nobody to back me up or pick up my slack, I don't get a break, and I'm in a really big transitionary period that's been extremely hard for me. I feel like the...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Chocolate's anxiety is steadily improving but it still needs to be addressed. She was very good at the conventional vet's, but when I came back to drop off her stool sample she....um....provided a fresher sample on the floor, shall we politely say. The conventional vet is willing to prescribe...
  3. Help with acclimating my new rescue

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I'm a new dog owner and I just adopted a 2 year old border collie mix- she's fantastic!

  5. My Puppy is an Angel... Until me AND my husband are home at the same time.

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Just like the title suggests. I have a Shepherd Collie mix, at least that's what I was told by the shelter. They were told by the people who surrendered him that he was a Shepherd Rough Collie mix, but in all honesty I don't know what kind of shepherd nor what kind of collie he really is. I do...

    Attention All New Members
    My wife and I have a morkie, about 2 1/2 years old. He can be fairly loving, but when we are watching TV in bed and he's between us, if I lean over and try to hug my wife or kiss her on the cheek or such, he gets extremely upset and looks terrified, like I'm going to hurt my wife. He has to be...

    Recently, I moved out of my parent's place and took my dog with me. Since we moved, I've been noticing my dog has been having trouble using the bathroom, particularly pooping.

  11. Separation Anxiety + Crate Training

    General Dog Forum
    Fellow dog owners, my recently-adopted 2-yr old 75lb dog seemed like the perfect pet for the first month or so that we had him. He was already housebroken (although not microchipped) and we didn't bother crate training him because he seemed so well-behaved when we were gone. After a month went...

    We got a 3 year old border collie from a rescue charity. Her name is Sweet Pea..

    Dog Rescue Forum
    I got my 4 year old Lab mix, Lucy, 3 years ago from a shelter. From what I heard her previous owners didn't do anything with her. After a lot of work, she now knows the basic commands (But they only work if she isn't having anxiety) and thankfully is potty trained. She was extremely happy to see...

  19. Any other anxious owners out there?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Does anybody else in the forum cope with anxiety? Yesterday I was with my local trainer and he pointed how tense I was all the time and how dangerous that could come to be around Miúra, my new 4 month old pup, who's a dominant dog. This made me very concerned yet again about owning a dog that...
