    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    She's been here before, but never when it was warm enough to swim. Now she was clearly interested in the water, but I think it was to cold for her last time. She always jumps into the bath tub when I leave the door open, so I'm fairly sure she likes water. I want her to be able to jump into...

    Dog Health Questions
    My 2 year old Golden has been getting a lot of thick, dark ear wax, I think, because of swimming. I also read that this can happen because of ear mites. The vet diagnosed yeast. My question is, is there a good way to maintain ear health for long eared breeds that like to swim? Can anyone...
