    He Goes Crazy!! (Rat Terrier 12 weeks)

    Don't get me wrong... :p I specifically chose a terrier because I have experienced them and read about their personalities. I didn't want an easy going, quiet kind of dog. I guess I am/ was worried about how to handle him in that situation. If we had a backyard I would put him out there...

    What if I dont get a puppy?

    I have two friend both who have pit bulls from the Toronto Humane Society that they got as adults. These dogs are the SWEETEST, and most loving dogs! Although I love my little puppy I think if I ever get a second dog it would be an adult.

    Crate training problems?

    Hi Kroovy, My puppy is now 12 weeks old and what we have done is set up his crate at night so he just a bit below bed level (crate is sitting on two chairs.) The first two weeks we were getting up every few hours. He would start whimpering and we would hear him. My advice would be to put...
