  1. Having trouble finding the right food...

    Dog Food Forum
    Hi everyone! I've had my one year old beagle mix since March, and it's been a constant stuggle with foods from the start. He had diarrhea constantly when I first got him, and dry flaky skin. He came from the shelter eating Purina puppy chow, so switched him to PetSmart's Simply Nourish chicken...
  2. Switching foods

    Dog Food Forum
    My dog just turned 1 at the beginning of the month and my boyfriend accidentally bought him puppy food again last month. I am trying to switch him back to an adult food since he is full grown and a beagle-prone to being overweight and puppy food has a lot of calories. Yesterday was the first...
  3. Rewarding without creating arousal?

    Dog Training Forum
    Never mind ! Found what I was looking for thanks to user Gingerkid! This is related to my post I made yesterday Canyx was right. I thought that I may get quicker replies if my question wasn't buried in that post. I am trying to train calm following the instructions in Scaredy Dog by Ali...
  4. Canyx was right. In search of more advice in dealing with a reactive dog.

    Dog Training Forum
    A month or so ago I posted a short story about my history with my dog and my desire to be able to effectively use a tug in training my dog. I received a lot of very good information on tug and training calm. The dog I'm writing about is a pit/mutt who I found on the street when she was about...

    Dog Food Forum
    I have a 9 month, 11 pound Maltipoo/yorkie mix. I took him to the vet a few months ago and he was perfectly healthy. For awhile now he hasn't been eating much food like 1/2-1 cup every other day. I changed from Purina puppy chow to Nature's select food first the puppy chicken then the adult...
  6. How many times a day do you feed your dog?

    Dog Food Forum
    I hope this is the right forum to post in! So you know how on the bags of dog food (& online) theres a recommendation to feed your dog 3x a day if its a puppy and then transition to 2x a day once it becomes an adult? Is there a specific reason for that or is it simply a convenience thing? My...

    Dog Food Forum
    I have a chihuahua beagle (pretty small, 11 pounds - think beagle hit with a shrink ray) who just turned a year old. For most of her life (I've had her since she was 10 weeks old), she's loved food and eaten everything very quickly. But in the past couple weeks, she's gotten into the habit of...

    General Dog Forum
    Hey everyone! A friend of mine has a new puppy, Guadiana, and she's turned to me for help because today she growled at her and bit her when she touched her chest while she was feeding. She's been touching the food for the last week (like I recommended) and never had a problem until today (with...
  11. Week 1: both owner and puppy lose 2 lbs.

    Dog Health Questions
    As I've relayed in other posts, last week (Friday, 8/5) my wife and I adopted a puppy. On Saturday (8/6), I use my home scale to weigh myself first, then weighed myself while holding the pup. The difference was her weight, 34 lbs. This weekend, I repeated the weigh in, and... well, I had lost 2...
  12. Dog has bumps on his underbody

    Dog Health Questions
    I bought a pitbull almost two years ago, and I've seen bumps show up periodically under his body, on his chest and neck and on his inner legs. When I bought the dog I knew this was a specific problem, I had to sign a contract. "We*the Breeder (Poulsen’s Painted Pitbulls) feel you the Buyer...
  13. Short & Long-Term Confinement and Treats

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have reserved a Golden Retriever puppy and have been doing research. I have been reading up on how to housebreak a puppy and I was wondering if it is essential to have a long-term confinement area and a short-term confinement area? I was going to buy a crate but was wondering if I must buy a...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I'm not a first time dog owner, but it's been eight years since my last puppy. We feed Wellness. How much should I feed her? Twice or three times a day? We have an 8 year old dog, so I've been eyeballing food portion based on how much I give my other dog. 10 weeks. 12 pounds. Anatolian...
  15. Loose Stool in Puppy

    Dog Health Questions
    Hey all, my puppy, Maggie, is about 4 months and she's a pitbull-border collie mix. I've noticed recently - although I don't think this is a recent problem as I had vaguely noticed it before - that her stool is very soft and smells horrible. Her gas has the same smell, and both are a horrible...
  16. Lab puppy inhales food.

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello: My lab puppy Charlie is now 6 months old. He has always been a fast eater and I am becoming concerned. I feed him Nutro Ultra Adult, 1 1/2 cups in the morning and 1 1/2cups at dinner. He seems like he is always hungry. When I put the bowel down he is done eating in less than 1...
  17. Dimentia and what to feed to improve?

    General Dog Forum
    Yorkie may have dementia. She doesn't respond to her name, paces around the room, stopped barking, sometimes stuck at corners, etc. My question is could it be due to a dog attack where my GS bit her on the neck shoulder area and she had to recover from that at the emergency months ago. Her neck...
  18. Recurrent diarrhea

    Dog Health Questions
    Back in September, my dog had a night where she was throwing up and had diarrhea all night long. I called the veterinary ER, and they said there was no need to bring her in, but to make sure she was getting plenty of fluids and to feed her chicken and rice. I did that, and all was fine. She...

    Hi all I have put my dogs on a raw diet and a couple of days ago i got 2 months supply of meat for them from naturesmenu.co.uk and put it all in the freezer as soon as it arrived (it came frozen). My dogs are quite small and I feed one 160g per day (Chuwawa) and 260g (Yorkie). So i cant...

    Hello all! Happy hump day :) So I have a question... I have my 2 boys, and one of them seems to be experiencing allergies which have been causing him some gnarly ear infections.
