  1. Crate Training is my nemesis...

    Dog Training Forum
    I'm going to a nosework seminar with Snowball, but all dogs have to be able to be crated and he's not formally crate trained. (He'll also need to be able to be crated when the office is empty if I take him to work with me). Luckily, we have several weeks to work on it. We've spent several...

  3. Help: Unprepared Puppy Owner

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Yeah, I'm "that guy". (Or girl, as it were.) We got a puppy with no real experience of puppies. We don't really know what we are doing and I'm afraid I am going to have a dog with a host of bad habits if I don't educate myself fast, especially due to her breed/type which is half black lab and...

  6. Transitioning from Overnight Crating

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I am a first time dog owner, and our dog is about 6 months old. The people we bought her from had her, as a puppy, accustomed to sleeping in a crate. We have always done the same, she sleeps in a crate at night. This was fine when she was a puppy, as she slept a lot, but now she seems to have...

    My husband and I adopted Henry, a 6 month old Border Collie/Collie mix a few weeks ago.
