  1. Puppy Terrified of the City!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    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...
  2. A little about me

    Attention All New Members
    I’m currently living in Fairfax, VA and am an avid dog lover. I always enjoy hanging out with my girlfriends golden Oakley but I really want to have a best friend of my own. Fairfax however seems to be a hard place to have a pet (with the whole NoVa atmosphere of work, work, work). I'm joining...

    General Dog Forum
    So, I live in the middle of downtown Portland, OR, I have a 30lb border collie/kelpie mix, and don't have a car.

  5. How to get scared puppy to eliminate on busy city street

    Dog Training Forum
    We recently got a cocker spaniel puppy and live in an apartment building in a very busy section of a major city. There are no "green" areas immediately nearby, nor any gardens, yards, or even large areas with trees. Most dog owners in this neighborhood have dogs who use the bathroom on the...

    Hi everyone, I'm in need of help with a potty training question! I have an 11 week-old cocker spaniel puppy, and she got her second round of vaccinations today. We live in the center of a large city, on the 4th floor of an apartment building, and we have no private garden, courtyard or yard...
  7. Creating a bathroom spot on concrete patio?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi everyone. I live in a townhouse in the city and I'm getting a new puppy soon, and I would really like to have some sort of "potty spot" for him to go in our backyard patio (especially for going late at night, rather than walking the city streets). However, the patio is all concrete and I'm...
  8. Little dog in the city

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello! Let me show you a video about a 12 weeks old puppy walking in the city following his master without leash: We are sure that we can only lose this behaviour, by the lack of awareness. I wish dog owners could be informed about the basics of dog-and-owner-relationship, and be helped not...
  9. City puppy refuses to eliminate in city! HELP!

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi! My boyfriend and I got our four-month old Puerto Rican shelter rescue puppy, Bagel, about two weeks ago. She is fully crate-trained and about 90% house-broken. (She has had two accidents over the last week because we didn't take her out in time.) Bagel is smart and learns quickly. We adore...
