    Hi, everyone. I have been considering getting a puppy for quite some time now. I've decided on an Australian Shepherd and I've already done a ton of research and waited until I could accept the financial responsibility of a pet. When I began searching for the right pup, I wasn't anticipating...
  2. Puppy left with litter too long?

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi there! I'm really hoping to find some help here. I have a new puppy in my household, who is 4 months old.

    General Dog Forum
    How do I know if my dog is bonded to me? He's a rottie mix, and very loving, but with multiple people in the house, how can I be sure he's bonded with me? I want to take him with me when I head off to college, but not if he's attached to someone else.

    Hi everyone, I have a beagle named Missy. She is such a sweetheart, but I am having obedience problems with her. When she was younger, I was irresponsible with her and I let her roam around outside without any care in the world. I grew up after a year of realizing what having a dog is really...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi. I had a few questions about raising two dogs and I would appreciate any comments and ideas! We own a 3 year old male siberian husky who is well behaved for the most part.
