  1. When should I get a second dog?

    General Dog Forum
    So I currently have a six month old cocker spaniel - chihuahua puppy. We got her when she was 10 weeks old. Training is coming along nicely. She is super playful and has quite a few tricks under her belt. But one thing we have noticed is that she has trouble being alone. She just LOVES being...
  2. Chi-spaniel puppy momma here!

    Attention All New Members
    Hello all! I have a six month old cocker spaniel - chihuahua puppy! She is super playful and has quite a few tricks under her belt. She also LOVES being around other dogs (and people!). For this reason I feel SO guilty when we have to leave her home alone a few hours a few days a week. I am...
  3. Submissive Urination

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi everybody! I just adopted a 1 yr old Silky Terrier Mix yesterday and I've noticed that every time I go to pick her up, she crouches down and I notice a small puddle. I'm not sure if this is because she was just spayed yesterday or if this is Submissive Urination - but either way, any...
  4. Hi everyone!

    Attention All New Members
    Hello! I just joined because I adopted a 1 year old Silky Terrier mix yesterday and I've noticed some aggression from my usually calm 6 yr old Chi-terrier mix - but mostly just when she is trying to play with some of the toys. He's usually a very mellow dog, mostly a couch potato and so far she...
  5. Wondering if I should foster...?

    General Dog Forum
    I'll try to keep this as short as I can. I have 4 cats and 1 dog - Cobber is a 7-mo, 20-lb Aussie Terrier who is just now starting to calm down somewhat from the crazed puppy and adolescent phases. I own a house with a fenced-in yard. Cobber goes to doggy daycare while I'm at work during the...
  6. Separation anxiety, second dog?

    General Dog Forum
    Good evening, Any advice would be gratefully received. We have a miniature dachshund at the moment who suffers from separation anxiety when left alone—displaying distress by constant and barking/howling. This is really down to the fact that I work from home so he has a lot of human company the...

    General Dog Forum
    A couple weeks ago I was assisting with a play group and this adorable 25 lb black fluffy thing came up behind me me and poked me with her nose. It was love at first sight, and she is the sweetest thing, has a great temperament and gets along with every other dog she's met in the shelter so...
  8. Is my dog's jealous behaviour normal or dangerous?

    General Dog Forum
    Hi Would love some guidance. I have a 10 month mongrel bitch. She's clearly jealous of a puppy we're looking after and trying to show dominance to him but I'm trying to understand whether her behaviour is in the normal range which would settle down over time or whether she is likely to do...
  9. Getting a second dog, problem is socialization?

    General Dog Forum
    I've had two dogs in the past before I got my current one (Shih Tzu.) I've seen the consequences of an unsocialized, dog-dominant dog when I rescued a Labrador retriever. Our Labrador was given to our aunt and I got my second dog, a Cocker spaniel, he was perfect and well socialized. It was then...
  10. Companion for my dog and I: Good breed?

    General Dog Forum
    I've had my dog for 9 months (he's 11 months now) and he's been great. Things were rough in the beginning but I took the time and effort to work with him and now he's the best dog I could ask for. However, recently my mother died. Though I was the one who cared for him and took him out for...

    Dog Health Questions
    We have a 4 year old female german shepard that is behaving oddly for around 6 months. When we put down food for her she often will approach, inspect the food and then walk away. She usually will check on our aged male chow who is getting medication in his food, although he has been doing so...

We're running into some aggression issues that we don't really understand. Here is some background about the dogs. The first is a neutered male beagle/hound mix and weighs...
