    Those with multiple dogs...

    We have three dogs, but we also do crate/rotate. Our BBM and golden mix are usually the ones together, while our terrier is mostly on his own. The big ones usually do play when they get bored (usually at 5am). When they get really excited, they'll start rolling around on the floor and...

    Large vs. Small Senior Dogs

    I never personally owned a senior dog, but I worked in a shelter and we had a lot of senior dogs come in (unfortunately). I'd say the larger dogs are more difficult to care for because of the size. Taking them up and down the stairs, cleaning up their messes...smaller dogs were always easier...

    The little terror

    So the last post I made, we were looking for a name for our 5 month old puppy that we adopted. It took us a year to finally come up with something that suit him! His name changed a lot, and a few stuck for a short while but we came up with Hobbes. He's been a blast to own, completely different...

    My Puppy is Weird

    Buddy did the same when we first got him at 8-9 weeks old. I'd walk with him in my arms to the other side of the street, and he'd run back home. I'd just do it farther and farther each day and eventually he'd just walk. :p

    Why does naming have to be so difficult..

    So we adopted this little guy about a month ago and he still doesn't have a name. He's a 5.5 month old schnauzer mix, not sure exactly what. He's a pain in the ass, always getting hold of everything, taking clothes out of the basket and hiding them, chasing the cats..but what less is expected of...

    Let's talk colors.

    Yes we have! :) We've been working on it with them and they haven't fought at all (not even scraps) in three months. We have them separated when we leave the house but when we're around, they do great together. Not even a wrong stare or any tension so I'm really glad. The puppy will also be...

    Let's talk colors.

    I think I like hunter green and leather. I'm not too crazy about the bright colors, maybe because he's a schnauzer mix and he has a sophisticated look rather than a puppy face. Ahhh so complicated!

    How lightly does your dog sleep?

    My two are very light sleepers. I have no idea how it's possible when people take pictures of their sleeping dogs, mine are always up and alert with every sound.

    Let's talk colors.

    I was wondering what colors go best on certain colored dogs. I have a golden boy, a brindle boy, and now we're pending for a black pup. We're going to go collar shopping for the new pup and I have no idea what colors to look at! I want to start shopping online now! :) So let's see those...

    Dog parks

    Yes it is, but no one had ever told me that and I seen people bringing puppies all the time (forums, facebook, irl) and thought it was fine to do so. I know it definitely impacted him more being at that age. That's also the age where dogs treat puppies more as dogs than pups.

    Gecko Behavior Help?

    My boyfriend's gecko will do the same thing, we hand feed him crickets sometimes as a treat and when he's had enough, he'll move his head and give us the cold shoulder. I think it's normal behavior. :)

    Dog parks

    Exactly, thank you. I think there's a certain trust still with my dog around other dogs. I would be comfortable with him walking on leash with another dog if they were introduced properly, but never off leash in my own home or outside. The way he reacts to dogs is completely tense and he...

    Dog parks

    So because I'm sharing my experience and events, it's unrealistic? Okay. My dog has become aggressive. He snaps at other dogs, and there was a time where he'd fight with my other dog. And if you see how he acts with other dogs, you'd understand. Him being a "pit" doesn't help his dog...

    Dog parks

    None at all for my boy. He was four months old, he was greeting every dog happily, had no problems playing with my dog and no problems when we introduced them together. He never barked at other dogs and on walks he ignored them. Then one day a huge GSD got in his face and they started fighting...

    Dog parks

    Wow, okay, I do understand dog parks are different from mine which is what I mentioned. And I mentioned having other areas because I didn't think that dog parks were only options for some people, so trying to show my understanding of it. I'd also be way more comfortable with dog parks if...

    Dog parks

    I guess it's different here then, we have a dog park the size of a large yard and there's a group of people who all know each other and gang up against anyone who brings a new dog. I also have a large yard that my dogs play in and I have random fenced areas I can let them run around in my city...
