  1. Need Advice with Nail Trimming

    Dog Grooming Forum
    I have a small dog (11 pounds and 7 months old) and he absolutely hates getting his nails trimmed. He cries bloody murder at the vets and the second time he got his nails clipped the vet which was a different one from the first time cut one nail too short which didn't help matters. I wasn't...

    My two adult Male cats (both are 4 years old) have only once saw a dog (my former neighbors adult calm pug mix dog). Cat A got freaked out and ran to hide, while Cat B stood his ground and swiped at the dog. My cats are extremely bonded with me and will follow me everywhere and sit in my lap...

    My dog is a Yorkie and she never used to do this before eventually when she goes outside her normal behavior would be to bark now she rarely barks or just on very few times and won't stop walking around the yard.

  5. Papillon Eating Raw?

    Dog Food Forum
    Alright, so after thinking about it, I would actually be interested in learning about raw for my Papillon. While I still can't see how commercial foods can be horrible for you dog, I do think he would enjoy eating raw. I think it would be fun for the both of us, but on the other hand I'm worried...

    General Dog Forum
    This is about an issue my mother has with her dogs. She's got three female dogs; an English cocker spaniel and two small mutts who appear to be chihuahua/yorkshire mixes of some sort. They are really small. Honestly, one of the smallest dogs I've ever seen in real life. Sometimes I wonder...

    I own a small mixed breed Pomeranian style dog. She's 10 pounds. I'll give you the routine speech- at home she's loving and adorable, but when she gets something she wants (and you try to take it from her) or is terrified by another dog- she turns dangerous. She snarls and snaps. I don't...
  13. Do your small dogs think they are big?

    Attention All New Members
    OK...Is it just Chihuahuas and Yorkies or do all small dogs think they are the largest dogs in the pack?
