  1. Winter Walk

    Dog Pictures Forum
    Snowball and I went for a really nice walk over the winter break; here's some photos from it. Enjoy! I am so mad about this photo - I think it is absolutely perfect except the garbage can is in focus instead of the dog. :cries: BONUS: New Year's Eve, Circa 2 AM
  2. Is my dog depressed?

    Dog Health Questions
    So, I'll try not to give my dog's entire life story here but I feel like I need to provide backstory or something. So, bear with me. My dog has seemed rather depressed in the last few months. She just turned 4 years old and I heard that is around the age that dogs begin to mellow out and...
  3. Hiking with a Bernese Mountain Dog

    Dog Training Forum
    This summer I am going on a senior trip with my buddies. It will be 9 mile hike with about a 4000 foot elevation gain and we'd be staying for a couple of days at the top of mountain range. I would love to be able to take my Bernese but I'm not sure if it would be good or bad for him. He's a...
  4. Can't walk our puppy or take to training classes for three more weeks. (Boosters)

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Not going to lie. My previous puppy was a breeze to take care of. He had a bladder of steel and his teething phase must have been a day long and we didn't have to crate train. Our newest is a little monster. She screams bloody murder when she wants out of her room. It's a bathroom. The world...
  5. Dog too excited on some walks

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi! I have a mixed breed (possibly hound/shepherd?) female who is about 15 months old. Overall she is a fantastic family dog. She's great with other dogs, loves kids, and has been very easy to train. She's a little shy, especially when people she doesn't know come to our house, but she...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all, I am having a problem with one of my dogs and can't seem to find a solution. She is a 10 year old Miniature Pinscher and she has walked well on a leash since she was a puppy. Recently while on a walk, she suddenly stopped walking and looked a little spooked. I carried her home and...

    Hi, Our Portie is 5 month old and very energetic. We have went through basic training and does very well for the most part.

    We have a springer spaniel almost 6 months old who acts like he is afraid of everything on our walks now.

  9. How much is too much exercise?

    General Dog Forum
    My shih tzu x pekingese puppy will be a year old in 2 weeks, and I'm just wondering what is too much exercise. I've read and heard that both shih tzu and pekes don't last long, and the average time is about 15 min a walk. However, my pup has walked up to 2 hours once and was ready to play...

  12. aggression towards other dogs on leash

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi, I'm new here, but I was wondering if anyone could help me out with the problem I've been having with my adopted pit bull. I wouldn't exactly classify it as aggression, it seems more like a dominance thing or something. When I walk my dog on leash, she has a very calm attitude (will walk by...
