  1. Drinking Water Snob (another stupid question)

    General Dog Forum
    I feel so silly writing this, but my 2.5-yr-old Aussie Terrier, Cobber, is a real water snob. He can be very thirsty, such as after a long walk or now that the air's drier as we head into cold weather, but if the water dish isn't just what he thinks it should be, he won't drink there. It's hard...
  2. doesn't want to pee in morning?

    Dog Health Questions
    Enzo doesn't want to urinate first thing in the morning suddenly. I take his water away at 9p and we go for our last walk around 12a. Usually he wants to go out by 10a, but all of the sudden he doesn't. He did have a UTI and struvite crystals about six weeks ago, but he is not having any...
  3. So my puppy is going to the lake...

    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...
  4. My Lab/GS puppy will not get out of the pool! HELP!

    Attention All New Members
    Hey everyone, I have a 105 pound 11 month old Lab/GS (so I'm told) mix. He loves being in the water more than life itself, and I am happy to oblige. However, my life must continue and he has to be ready to come out of the water when I tell him. He is extremely obedient outside of the pool area...

My fiance and I are going to be moving back to BC, which means lots and lots of water and beaches and lakes! :) Anyhow, it will be Luna's first time around "big water" I've never had to teach a dog to swim before and any advice would be great. I...
  7. House training/leash training/LOTS of water

    Dog Training Forum
    I have two 6 month old pit bull/basset puppies, both around 40 lbs. When I rescued them they were far from being potty trained, and have started catching onto the idea of it. They ALWAYS go when I take them out, but they still have accidents. I understand that they can't hold it very long...

  9. Ibis Attacks a Sprinkler :)

    Dog Pictures Forum
    was hoping some dog lovers would be able to help me out by voting for my photo in a competition of Ibis attacking a sprinkler. The competition is a People's Choice Award hosted on Facebook and only requires people "liking" the photo to count as a vote. If my photo wins Ibis will get a big bad...
  10. Taking up water and food

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I understand it that one good way to feed a dog is to give it food twice a day, then hide the leftovers when the dog's done. I was under impression that water should be always available. But after lurking a little on these forums I see that many people take up water also. So, what's your...
  11. How much should you feed a toy breed?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I'm getting a havamalt (havanese/maltese mix) from my moms cousin soon. I was wondering how much you should feed and give it water each day. Are there certain times you should feed it. The biggest this breed will get is 9-12 pounds full grown. Any advice is welcome
  12. hydration

    Dog Health Questions
    My 12 week old lab mix left two half dollar sized puddles during puppy school last week and the trainer said that he was overhydrated. I have a full bowl of water out for my older dog who has learned to self-regulate, but the puppy drinks like he's just finished a crawl through the desert. I...
  13. Does your dog...

    General Dog Forum
    I have a 1-year-old male Boston Terrier, my first dog, and it amazes when I hear things like "Wow, I didn't think Bostons jumped in water to retrieve things" or "wow, your Boston likes hiking?" or "your Boston plays frisbee?" He's obsessed with playing frisbee. He loves hiking. He loves walking...

  17. Why is my dog scared of the pool?

    General Dog Forum
    We just got a pool built and my Golden Retriever will not go near it at all. I always thought retrievers loved water and it'd be hard trying to keep her away from it. I guess I can't complain since we don't want her in anyway, but I was just curious why she acts like this. The funny thing is...

  19. Swimming?

    General Dog Forum
    Ginger's eight now. When she was a puppy, she would swim in my friend's pool with no problems. She went in of her own accord. We go to the beach and the lake once in a while and she likes playing in the waves but won't go in deep and swim. So nothing traumatic has happened with water. We got...
