Well he produces the normal amount of urine and pees the normal amount of time. The vet checked him out with a clean bill of health, but thinks he just doesn't see the difference between having one paw on the grass to pee and all four. I'm not sure what I think about my dog's perspective...

6 yr old Dog peeing on sidewalk

My 6-year-old male just started peeing randomly on the sidewalk. It doesn't seem to be an inability to hold his bladder. He will just put one paw on the grass and then begin peeing on the sidewalk, not moving until he is done. Sometimes he will just start peeing as we walk. I'm not sure how to commu...

My 2-yr-old male pit bulldog doesn't like puppies. He has been the "baby" in our household family for as long as he's been with us and is used to everyone fawning over his puppy antics(even though he's fully grown now). When my girlfriend got a boxer puppy, he was very resistant to her. He...

Diane, I tried to locate those training tapes you were talking about but without success. Perhaps it is spelled differently?

Thanks to both of you. I will take a look at that stuff and see how it works. I'll post back on the results as well.

Pure Positive Heel

Hello everyone, I haven't been on in a while but have been meaning to post this inquiry. Anyway, I want to learn as much about heeling as possible as I'm thinking of putting my dogs in obedience competition. I have had great success with a traditional chain collar in the past, but am in love with th...

Positive Training

Hey everyone! I was wondering what books everyone recommends regarding our breed and good positive training. I have a friend that recently adopted a pit bull puppy from a rescue and although I've given him as much advice as I could, I can't always be there. I recommended Diane's book of course, but ...

Really?! Vicks?! I'm willing to try anything now because after our girl's last heat she had a false pregnancy almost up to the current heat. Her mamary swelling just went down after about 4 months. Anyone with false pregnancy tips just put em up, please!

Most puppy foods(and foods in general) have feeding guidlines on the bag. You match up the weight(25 lbs?) to his age in weeks on the chart and it will tell you how much(total) to feed a day that will meet his caloric needs. You can feed half in the morning and half in the evening, all at once, or 3...

I feed Professional dry dog food to my dogs on a regular basis. It's a little hard to find but they love it, their coats and stool are great, and it's not uber expensive like some of the other foods which aren't much better in the natural pet store. I also supplement this with raw beef, chicken, egg...

As far as the crate goes, I'd go with a vari kennel type crate. They are only plastic but the only way I could see my dogs getting out is by standing up with enough force to pull the screws out. My girlfriend had a rednose male before her current rednose female and he had severe separation anxiety. ...

Truthfully, your dog was not house trained before. You were just taking her out enough that she never had an accident. Puppies tend to have a natrual tendency to try harder and harder as they grow up to hold their bladders. She won't go to the bathroom in the house if she doesn't have to, so if you'...

I'll donate... Ok, first of all, your dog is not going to the bathroom in the house to get back at you. Dogs, unlike people, lack the ability to form such complex schemes for retribution. In all likelihood, she probably just can't hold it anymore. The most recent experience I had with this was my gi...

I have the same problem. Buddy lets me touch/pull/squeeze his feet and nails all I want. It's just that the sight or feel of the clippers sends him into a struggle mode. He will suddenly transform into the most flexible escape artist I have ever seen attempted to be restrained. When I had the vet tr...
