    Inducing vomit dog

    We just had to use peroxide for our dog the other night, he ate the handle of his tug toy which was made out of some extra strong material and about 10 inches long total. This was the first time we've had to do this but we figured we'd do it and if it didnt' work we'd take him to the vet. We...

    Akita Inu (Japanese) Breed

    Top breeds of playful dogs?

    Bull Terrier for sure the most plaful I've ever owned, although they do tend to spin and can knock over young kids. They seem to not know their own strength. Also my vote for the most cuddly, for some reason they also believe they are lap dogs.

    House Breaking a Dog w/o being mean??

Then eventually outside, and further and further into the backyard . And then we placed the post in a well-draining sport at...
