  1. Crate anxiety, but not caused by visual separation.

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello! TL;DR- My dog licks his kennel and cries when he is in there for longer than 3 minutes while I am in the room. Just me. If I leave, he is fine. If it is all night long, he is fine. If I'm walking around in the room, he is fine. Sometimes if I am not present and sitting next to his...

  4. Licking a lot before bed and when waking up

    General Dog Forum
    I have a 1 year and 4 month old male Cockapoo that I noticed licks a lot before going to bed at night and especially when he first wakes up in the morning. He licks his paws a little but mostly he licks the bed sheets. I figured he's licking to relax himself and maybe he likes the bed sheets b/c...
  5. Do you let your dog lick dishes?

    General Dog Forum
    I was raised in a family where the dogs got a go at pots and pans and sometimes dishes before they went into the dishwasher. I can't see that it did any harm, and continue the family tradition. Who knows, it may do some good. Everyone in my family has very robust immune systems...colds...

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a rescue Papillon who had a great home up until his owner died unexpectedly. He was trapped in the house with her for several days before he was found.

    General Dog Forum
    I went up to the Dallas area for spring break to check out UNT and to visit my boyfriend. And of course to see his awesome Border Collie, Angus, the silliest ten year old I've ever met. For one, he's almost all white except for his ears which are a dark brown. It's like the rest of his fur...

  16. Unusually Friendly Puppy Behavior

    Dog Health Questions
    My boyfriend has a 10 month old yellow lab puppy. I've spent the past 7 months around the puppy, Noah, so it's not like I'm someone new to him. He's always been quite affectionate and a lap dog, but this past week he's been a little overly friendly I'd say. He has started sniffing certain...
  17. Can someone tell me why my Pomeranian keeps doing this?

    General Dog Forum
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQLq9OsN33M ^ He does it about once a day. My best guess would be he is cleaning himself. I don't know. It's always the same chair, and even the same leg... Any thoughts?
