  1. Puppy and Apartment Living

    General Dog Forum
    So, I am getting a Collie puppy probably around June. By then I will have been in my apartment for about 1.5-2 months. I have had dogs apart of my family my whole life, so dog ownership is not new to me. What will be new is having a dog in an apartment and jugging my full time job. I would like...

    Hi! I just joined the community and wanted to introduce myself. I'm a 30 year old graphic designer and animal lover.

    Hey, I just joined the forum today. I was reading a thread here earlier and realized that this place is a much better place than Y!Answers to be asking for advice on dogs! So anyway. I'm getting my very own dog for the first time this summer, and I think I've made up my mind that I'm going...
  10. Am I being cruel to my dog...

    General Dog Forum
    I have to ask this because it's been worrying me. We're moving into a 1 bedroom apartment and we have a cat. Meanwhile, we got a large breed dog (lab/shep mix) because it is what we wanted and what I really believed I could take care of. Now I'm worrying because I don't have a yard and I don't...
  11. Small apartments and dogs. Does anyone have experience with this/advice?

    I'm in a bit of a pickle. I'm a twenty-one year old college student moving into a new one bedroom apartment (~600 square feet) in about two months. Both my parents and I are far more comfortable with me having a dog with me since I'll be living alone, which wasn't an issue until my childhood...

    General Dog Forum
    I've been doing a lot of research on Basenjis over the past year or so, but my living situation has been in a state of flux, so I didn't think I could make the decision to get one until it settled down. Well, now it has, and I'm moving into an apartment. Would a Basenji do ok in an apartment...
