  1. Yard Troubles

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We have two large-ish (8olb) dogs that are overjoyed that we recently completely fenced in our yard (it was originally only fenced on three sides) so now they can go out and chase each other around the bushes to their hearts content- but we are amazed that although they run allover the yard-...
  2. dangers in the grass?

    Dog Health Questions
    My pup is supposed to be spending a weekend at my folks house in a few weeks. They've warned me though, that they've spotted a fox with what looks like mange passing through their backyard on many occasions. What precautions can I take so this doesn't become a problem for my dog? My pup...
  3. Irresponsible owners and irresponsible drivers

    General Dog Forum
    I am very sorry to say that my fur baby was hit by a car yesterday. He is very lucky with only minor cuts! But before you call me an irresponsible owner, you should know the story. I was outside playing fetch with Titus, I threw the ball up front. One of my neighbors Yorkies were in the middle...

    I have a 10 month old Formosan Mountain Dog that I have had for 2 months. I adopted her from a rescue that had her sent from Taiwan, at 7 months old. She has been making excellent progress towards becoming a well socialized and well behaving dog, but lately, for about 5 days, she has been...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi, I have a great 6 month old boxer named Kujo and he's a really good dog and listens to me inside as well as I'm able to go walk him off leash in the woods and never runs away but the yard is a whole other story. When he's in the yard he acts very badly. When i call him to come in, he doesn't...
  6. Dog won't poop in the yard

    Attention All New Members
    Hello, We adopted a five year old Great Pyrenees Mastiff cross a little over a week ago, who is just learning that it is ok to pee in the yard. Razzy has gone in the yard 4 times and I'm ecstatic everytime, but he will not poop in the yard. He only goes when I walk him, which is what he is...
  7. Yard Tie-out ok for my 3mo. old puppy?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I recently tried a tie-out for my 3 mo. old puppy and was shocked when he ran full speed and jerked himself back very hard when he reached the maximum cord length. I'm wondering if this is something he'll learn or if it's an unsafe option for playing in our yard (which we can't fence for many...

  10. Plott Hound/Redbone Coonhound mix

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I am looking into rescuing a 7 month old, female plott hound/redbone coonhound mix. I am very positive that she and I would be great companions, however, I have one question. My backyard is large and mostly fenced, but has no gates, so she would not be allowed out on her own. I do, however, run...
  11. From apartment walks to house w/ yard

    Dog Training Forum
    We've had our 3 year old, Bichon-Poo girl, for 2.5 years. She is potty trained, very well. The whole 2.5 years we've had her, we lived in an apartment... So, we took her for walks to get her to potty. We JUST (this last weekend) moved into a house, with a private back yard and a dog door...
  12. Chemical-Free Yard Flea Treatment

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I want to treat my yard for fleas, but I don't want a bunch of chemicals sprayed everywhere for my dog to breathe, walk in, or play in. Does anyone know of an effective, safe flea treatment for the yard? I use Ivermectin for fleas, and it is very effective, but it only works AFTER the flea has...
