    My husband and I just got a new puppy (now 10 weeks) for the first time. We're still in the potty training and crate training process and will take him outside every 2-3 hours throughout the day and night. He was doing well with 1-2 pee accidents in the house a day, but was at least eliminating...

    Hello. I have two dogs. They are both rescue dogs, and I have had them about 4 years. They were both puppies, but almost adults when they were adopted. They were adopted by myself and my ex-wife, and I kept the dogs when we separated. That was almost a year ago. (You can see details of...

    So the way my parents have it set up for our dog is that he’s allowed to go all over back yard and sleep inside but in one spot which is right in front of doggie door once he enters inside the house from it. My dog is 8 years old and is American staffordshire terrier breed. Lately he’s been...

    Hi all! Last night my Red Heeler, Cody, decided (out of the blue) that he did NOT want to wear a collar or leash anymore! To the point of extreme aggression and biting when we get close to his neck with the collar. I honestly have no idea what the problem is! Note: We use a collar/leash combo...

    I have a 4 year old Boston Terrier who I've had for a little over a month. I rescued her from a breeder who was "done" with her. She has been so great over the last month, but for the past few days she has been extremely restless and even whining and barking all night. The first month that I had...

    Miniature dachshund (almost 12 mos) was just neutered. He was cryptorchid - meaning one testicle did not descend normally - so his surgery was more invasive. Surgery was 3 days ago and I was joking today that maybe he has brain damage. But really, he doesn't quite seem like himself. He often...

    Our 7ish year old female rescue beagle has started to show some strange behavior toward our other two dogs including aggression, dominance, and obsessiveness. This happened literally overnight.

    I have a 8 year old male doberman. He was rescued when he was about 1. He is very sweet and tolerant dog and he LOVES the dog run and playing with other dogs. When he was younger, other males would hump him and he would just stand there and wait for them to stop. Over time, he was able to let...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and I'm desperate to find help for my dog. He is a mix (my best guess is akita/pitbull or some kind of "terrier" breed). He has been healthy his whole life except for having Parvo when I rescued him. Now, at the age of 7, he has become violently aggressive. It's...

    I have a corgi, and we've had his nails clipped before so it was nothing new to him. But 3 days ago we had his nails clipped. It had been awhile so they were long and i'm sure it hurt. But now he seems scared of us, he yelps when we walk close to him, and he won't even go outside to go to the...
