  1. First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    My boyfriend and I got a dog 3 weeks ago from an old coworker of mine who could no longer care for the dog for personal reasons. She was a bit bigger than we were really looking for (50 lbs rather than 20-30lbs) but she seemed great according to the owner so we figure it was meant to be. Now I...

    On 12/5/20, I adopted a 4 year old beabull(bulldogxbeagle) female from a breeder. She was just spayed in October, and her last litter of puppies went home the same day I adopted her. She is used to living with a bunch of other dogs and cats. The breeder also stated she has only ever heard her...

    Hello! I’m writing about my Aussie/Husky puppy named Bentley. He’s 3 months old and generally a very normal puppy, but I’m a little overwhelmed when it comes to crate training... I’ve crate trained before, and it was pretty much true to the process I read in most articles (get them used to the...

    My dog is a 2 year old labradoodle. We got her when she was 6 weeks old when I was pregnant. Always treated her with A LOT of love, even sent her for a 2 week training when she was 6 months old. However, she’s always been a little feisty and it’s getting worse. For example, when she sleeps, if...

    I just adopted a dog a week ago, and was told she was very quiet and calm. Turns out she has lots of anxiety, even as she's settled in a bit, and now barks at anyone who comes to the door or comes over. Post-pandemic I'd like to have more people over, so I'm very concerned about this behavior. I...

    We have had our frenchie for about 4 weeks. 2 days after we got him he started getting horrible diarrhea...the vet confirmed he had coccidia and we did 7 days of meds. 2 days after the meds were done it started again so we did a fecal slide and were given 7 more days of a different med. That...

    Hello! TL;DR- My dog licks his kennel and cries when he is in there for longer than 3 minutes while I am in the room. Just me. If I leave, he is fine. If it is all night long, he is fine. If I'm walking around in the room, he is fine. Sometimes if I am not present and sitting next to his...

    My 4 month old puppy Boh is absolutely petrified by the city. We live in the heart of the city and I also bring him to work with me (my office is also in the city). He can barely stand going outside where he can hear any cars. Alleys and parks are fine but walking him to and from work is a...

    Hello! I have a 4-month old Siberian Husky puppy. Ever since we got him at 14 weeks old he showed signs of extreme separation anxiety. He LOVES his crate but as soon as he is left alone in the room for one minute (for example, me and my boyfriend go downstairs to grab snacks) he starts howling...

    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...

    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...

    I'm a new dog owner and I just adopted a 2 year old border collie mix- she's fantastic! She's certainly made progress in the week and a half that she's been here- giving me less trouble getting her out of her crate for a walk, eating pretty much as soon as the food is in front of her- but I want...

    I have a dog and my doctor suggested that I get him an esa letter as he helps with my anxiety. Should I go for an online or a physical clinic?

    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...

    Hi all! I’m having a little bit of trouble with my 10 week old lab Pit mix. I got her when she was only 4 weeks old. We have 4 kids aged 5months, 2 years, 4 years, and 7 years. I think she has a hard time dealing with the kids. They’re rowdy and can be rough with her. We are trying to teach them...

    Hi all, Bear with me on the length of the post, there is a lot to explain about our situation and I have a lot to get off my chest! Just under two months ago My girlfriend and I got an Aussie Puppy. We fell in love with him when we met him, and brought him home. We were so excited and felt so...

    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. It's been about a week, and she's only pooped normally twice: once in the house (she's house trained, but she's still...

    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...
