    I have a 12 year old bichon frise. He has always been affectionate, but lately he has been following me everywhere I go, including the bathroom, a place he has previously hated, because it is where the bathtub is. Yesterday he was also panting excessively and shaking. IT made me nervous, and...

    We are thinking of getting a second dog. We have a GSD/Chow mix right now. My husband wants to get a Pit or Rott. I was wondering if it would be better to get a female or a male? We are going to get this second dog as a puppy so that hopefully it will be easier for my dog to accept the...

    Has anyone else ever had problems with a dog "forgetting" their house training after a pregnancy? Emily is a 2+ year old mother of 7 puppies (Australian Shepherd). She gave birth 3 weeks ago and about a week ago started having accidents every single night (always pees, sometimes poops). We...

    Do your dogs know when your talking to them, or another dog or pet? Tanner is such a good dog, and he catches on to most things really quick. But Like when we tell allie 'No' or 'Stop' tanner stops whatever hes doing. and if we call allie over, like to get her to lay in her bed or something...

    Unfortunately I had to sell my house recently and move into an apartment complex I've been in before. They do allow dogs but under 30lbs. My dog is 60 and looking at her you can see she is part Pit. In all the years before living in this complex and seeing others with Large breeds, NO ONE...

    Recently, since my dog is very old now (hes 17) my dad decided to slowly put him onto a special food that was more "healty" for him. After introducing it slowly, and having him on this food for about a week, we found that the dog may actually be allergic to it. His fur became extremely oily, as...

    I'm wondering who here has "older" doggies. My Blackie will be 14 years old in 2 weeks. I see signs of his age all the time, but he's actually not too bad. His eyes are cloudy, but he can still see; he doesn't seem to have much arthritis even though his legs get shaky if he plays too hard...

    We dropped her off this morning. Poor thing, she's so nervous around strangers when her 'people' leave. She's so tiny, I just feel really bad for her. There was some concern that because of her size, she wouldn't be able to tolerate the anesthesia but we had some optional testing done and they...

    I need to get this out before I explode. We had brand new laminate flooring put into our house, as well as new carpeting in a couple of rooms (one being the baby's room). We have a door up in the baby's room, as well as gates so the dogs cannot get in there, as they like to pee on the carpet...

The shelter had some dogs there, and there were a few other rescues there. too. I kept going out to look at the dogs, and a few dogs caught my attention, but they were all...
