  1. Newbie named Emily!

    Attention All New Members
    Hey guys! I am Emily and I am new to a whole lot of places... Including here! I'm from South Carolina but now living in Rhode Island. I moved away from the pup I grew up with and my favorite, Maggie May- a miniature schnauzer that knows my every command and is my best friend. Only to move into...
  2. Outdoor X pen/access to partial yard?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a 14 week old BC X, and I work 10 hour shifts. For now, I have been crating him at night while I sleep (6.5-7 hours), play actively with him (or go for gentle, age appropriate walks, or work on training sessions for 5 minutes at a time, etc) until I leave for work at 2 pm. He gets half...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hello! I am taking my 13 year old Chihuahua X Dachshund camping in 2 days. I am a first time dog owner, and any tips would be greatly appreciated! :wink: I am most worried about fleas and ticks. We want to use a collar but she chews on it sometimes. Any natural flea/tick repellents you guys...
  4. 2nd set of vaccines done, can he leave the house/yard now?

    Dog Health Questions
    I've already cheated a little and feel bad- took him to the park with the kids and walked him around the block. He's a big little guy and he has a lot of energy, and since we're having issues with play...he either gets nippy or isn't interested in toys much. Our yard is pretty small and I was...

  6. Outdoor potty during the winter months

    General Dog Forum
    Hey folks I have a one year old apricot pug that doesn't want to go do her thing during the winter months. She'll go pee but has a very difficult time trying to go poop in the snow. Yesterday was the worst experience. It was extremely windy, blowing snow all over the place, and I know she...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi everyone, I just recently got a German Shepherd puppy and have started building a fence in a portion of my back yard for us to play in. It's a good sized space, about 25x25. I have already cleared the area of debris and it's almost puppy ready. My question is does anyone know a breed of...
  8. how to stop obsessive marking (outside)

    Dog Training Forum
    I adopted a dog about 4 months ago. I would really like to be able to have him off leash so he could come camping with us this summer. However, I feel that we need to break a habit of his first. When he is outside, he wants nothing but to mark. He marks until he is out of urine, but still...
