I made this mistake on my dog Jack and created a dog that now is intolerant to almost all kibbled food, unless it is vegatarian..(ugh) , I fed only Iams , ...

Oh and whatever you do.. if you have another dog. Keep them seperated until the dog knows where it stands. I dont know if you already have a dog?? I made this almost fatal mistake for my dogs and learned a heavy lesson from it. A new dog doesnt know where it stands in the pack of your home. To walk ...

My Dexter to overcome his anxiety I just had to make his crate escape proof and let him get over it. lets see a schdule.. I guess it depends on you and the dog.

I said that wrong.. nice catch Maryellen..and you made some great points too. potty in the crate.. I should of said..accidents to happen. it depends on how long the dog is crated, Mine are crated for 8 hours plus when I am at work.

Crate Crate Crate... :0 ) yes keep her in the crate. If she pottys in it..then she pottys in it. Make it a nice roomy crate.. I use the big metal ones, but they arent the best for dogs that may panic. I have reinforcements (metal) on all the corners and doors as dogs CAN and WILL and DO break out of...

you can start out with "Find me for food" Do you have a crate for dog or planning on getting a crate? (I highly reccomend a crate for your new dog.. a place for her to feel safe from this big crazy world.) and find me for food.. example... Open door to crate..call her to you. offer a bit of food. Th...

Congrats Ursus on your adoptive dog!! And ten paws up for adotping!! WhooHoo.. What to expect. Expect the dog possibly to refuse food or eat very little for a few days, even up to a week to two weeks. Expect diahrea and shyness. Dont expect its true personality to shine for at least three weeks. Don...

Hi, I am a bit late but the topic jumped out at me. My foster dog Scooter is seriously underweight, and we guess her age to be 8months to a year. Ribs sticking out, hip bones keep popping out (well visually) I am feeding this dog to the point where I think she is going to pop. I took her to the vet....
