  1. Experience with Spaniels? (Family Dogs)

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We're thinking about adopting a dog soon because we haven't actually owned a dog in a little while, just fostering. Our last foster was a senior dog (very old) who had to get put down because of the pain he was in. We want to look into spaniels, we're more than likely adopting one from a...

    General Dog Forum
    Need help keeping our dog calm when our new baby cries. We just had our first baby and we already have a 5 yr. old, 40lb Lab/Beagle mix. When the baby cries, the dog gets stressed out and cries too. If we're holding the baby while she's crying the dog tries jump on our lap or put her front...
  3. Rottie Not Liking Small Animals

    Dog Training Forum
    I have two cats, and one toy dog. I recently got a Rottie who I was told by his last owners that he was okay with small animals, but easily corrected. He constantly chases after my cats, barks, and whines at them, and then constantly barks at my roommate's daughter's toy dog. He's a sweet dog...

  8. Is this a dumb idea?

    General Dog Forum
    I've always had a weird dream to one day start my own cat and dog cemetery business. Is that far-fetched? Well, my main reasoning out there is this: I've heard or have seen after a loving family pet dies, it's often(not always), tossed in a garbage bag and thrown out like yesterday's news-just...

    General Dog Forum
    We live in the country and have three children, ages 14, 11, and 7. We need a sturdy dog that won't break, and is good with being hauled around by the youngest. It needs to have low exercise needs, but if it comes down to it, we have a large yard. It also needs to get along with our two cats...
