Fear + Pain + Heat = snarky dog. insert Vet-treatment, smells,.etc and even the most stellar dog turns into a dog. I think we expect even the greatest of dogs to be perfect...we let our guards all the way down and the act like, well a dog, and we panic (or just think about) the moment. I know our br...

I am so very sorry this happened. There really is no way for probably most of us to really help you in this time as we dont know you , the dog, or the situation surrounding you on a daily or every day basis. I know I hold my foster dogs to a one bite is too many rule.. As do most pit bull owners. (I...

The cat has been in the basement for two years? Now its upstairs , your dad HATES the cat (and animals) and is full of rage. Do you think its good to have the cat back in the line of fire? I dont know, this is a cruelty thing, so I cant say much more. It might be best to go put the cat to sleep , sa...

yup agree with others, leash is definatly your friend here. The nice thing about ferrets is they tend to be fearless and not bolt, which lessens ( a bit ) the prey drive of a fun chase. Most dogs are so curious at first, we just have to install that these animals are part of the pack! This thread I ...

Let's see here.... Should I put the crates in seperate rooms during the first two weeks (Tayzha and Beastie always had been crated in the same room...) then move then in the same room? yes this is best if possible. The dogs already know each other are there, they dont need to "see". :thum...

Why not all dogs are dominant..some will happily and more than ready to step up to the bat of "dominant" dog. Usually if we look at our set up of life we can see how this happened. It rarely happens on its own, usually we put the dog or better yet, allowed the dog to think he can be king o...

He looks great, I just love his big orange crinkly face. And you are more than welcome.. I know it wasnt very much..but I figured if enough people sent just a tiny amount it may add up for him.

I just love this guy for some reason! He is so , well funny and handsome looking all at once!

A 2 year old has ALOT of energy. Be sure you are giving him a great outlet for the grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! that he has. As stated, dont push (makes dog more excited many times) and ignoring is great. But really make sure he knows WHAT to do and what he can bite and have fun with (toys , tugs..e...
