    New puppy need crate help

    That picture was taken during the day with him napping in the crate with all his toys and stuff in there. he likes to take his things in there during the day to play with them. The crate is large, but it's sectioned off. I found it was best to do that with the larger crate from the beginning...

    Thank you! He's a little more of a challenge than Dixie when she was a puppy we are working on it everyday.

    Training progress and puppy pics

    In case anyone is interested, my neighbor told me to try a large stuffed animal in his crate at night. I put a big monkey in there and dressed it in one of my old T shirts. He cuddles with it at night.

    New puppy need crate help

    My bedroom just isn't big enough to put the crate in there. :( I thought of that too. I tried a puppy kong with frozen peanut butter in it. he has no interest in it.

    New puppy need crate help

    It's been a long time since i've been here and now there's a new family member. He's a 10 week olf lab pup. He's been challenging when it comes to the crate and i could really use advice before I rip all my hair out. LOL. I haven't slept in days and i'm very tired and worn out. I've had him...

    Argh! I want a second dog. Bad.

    I was 20 when I got Bear. He was already 4 years old and he lived with a chi. He was adjusting to a new family, house, kid and after some time he was just fine with being alone. He loved other dogs though and being able to play with them. About a year after I got him I got a puppy. He loved...

    Letter to Eve (and several to morons) ((enormously long, angry rant))

    Bear is well trained and very friendly yet hates having his ears touched. You can pet the top of his head but he hates being scratched behind his ears or his ears touched. He just doesn't like it. "But every dog loves their ears scratched" I hear all the time. No, this one does not. every...

    After 2 years I'm back and have a question

    Thank you everyone for your posts. after looking up Cold water tail and researching, it looks like that's most likely what it is. Her symptoms fit perfectly. I did give her a small dose of Rimadyl today and after an hour she perked up and started to slightly move her tail. Now she can wag it a...

    After 2 years I'm back and have a question

    Yes I have checked the anal glands too. She swims pretty much everyday in the neighbors pond. It's not for but maybe half an hour a day but this hasn't happened before. I can't get a vet appointment until tomorrow but they are going to call me if they get an opening today.

    Great to see you Renee!! I know she went potty yesterday and today just like normal. No problems in that department. LOL. All was well until the tail thing but I think I'll just call the vet and make her an appointment. I hate it when they are not feeling well.
