    My 6 week Old Stafford Terrier wont pee or poop on pad advice

    Is there anyway to train your dog outside? 6 weeks old? Usually they dont even leave their mothers until 8 weeks old. It could take months to train your dog to go where you want them to. She should never be placed in her crate as punishment but to learn that it is a safe haven and not for...

    when to switch from puppy food to adult food

    Wow, interested in the variation. My vet says you feed puppy food for 1 year. All dogs are puppies until 1 year of age. There is special nutrition and calories that are needed for the puppies until that age.

    Satin balls and diahorrea

    Please refer to your vet for the proper diet and if the dog is throwing up or having diarrhea, but you are giving them is not appropriate.

    Training or Abuse?

    You should of kicked your boyfriend out and kept the puppy. He is mean, and abusive and that will never change. Nothing he did was normal or appropriate.

    Dry dog food and wet dog food, which one is the best choice for puppies?

    Now a days there is so much to choose from. If you are not sure, ask your Vet. Otherwise, I agree with what everyone said above.

    Dogs are the most amazing creatures on earth.they can sense all our emotions. They know if we are happy, and, crying, laughing or anything in between. If we utilize good training skills the sky is the limit on the possibilities.

    Is grain free bad?

    researched this ALOT. Until Dog Food Advisor tells us not to feed grain free it is kinda wreid since 80 percent of dog foods in stores are grain free. They talked about certain ingredients to be careful such as Taurine. Most importantly on the grain free diet the protein source needs to be...

    Is grain free bad?

    I just bought them A Taste of The Wild dog food which is grain fee but fish based. Was rated number two on dog food advisor. I think from what i can figure out from reading, it is important the first source of protein is meat/fish not potato, peas or something of that nature. Most of the dogs...

    Feeling guilty and finding it hard to cope - advice??

    This is a priceless picture!!! The older dog will let the baby know when enough is enough. I am sure the lab will always be gentle in his approach. My older bishon/poodle can be a jerk on occasion. If you feel your lab is being harassed too much, then separate them for awhile. All in all...

    Is grain free bad?

Do you exercise him extremely well.if...

    House Breaking a Dog w/o being mean??

    One last thought, if you cannot handle or are confused on training, hire a professional you can participate with. I wish i had done that with my older dog who has a very aggressive streak.

    House Breaking a Dog w/o being mean??

    Ok the “mouthing” you refer to is a difficult thing to break a lot of puppies of. My dog is 14 mos old and when she is excited she tries to mouth everything on you. I have a spray bottle of water and spray her and say “no”. Also, get the training treats and make him/her sit and give a treat...
