I had to crate & rotate Dirty (75 pnd AmBully) with my Chi for about 4 months before they were okay around eachother. It allowed them to become accustomed to eachother without the fear of the chi getting gobbled up. I feel I was pretty lucky though..I wouldn't expect it to work every time. They ...

A lot of good advice here. I know how frustrating it would be..I dealt with that for a long time with pickles..hate to sound like a stickler but 3 accidents a week is NOT as bad as it could be. I was dealing with 3-4 a DAY in the beginning. All I could do was take my emotions out of the situation, a...

He's fine all night and only does it in the morning when it's time to get up and "eat". Or during his down time in the afternoon. I've given him quite a bit of slack since he's been in the new house and the clingy behavior has become a bit worse so i've been putting him back on more of a s...

Yeah that's what i've assumed...I just sat through the hour and a half nap time yodel session..and he did quiet down for about 15 minutes at the end. Pickles doesn't do it at all. So in the morning should I still let her out, as he gets more upset when she comes out and he doesn't..or have them ride...

Just need an outside perspective..

So just a few questions on the situation of crating.. When Dirty first came to us he was used to being outside 24/7 basically. He was in a kennel for 3/4 of the day. He is a very hyper guy, and when we first got him his energy was through the roof which I am assuming was because of lack of attention...

Did we all agree you should be learning more before giving advice Monokaryotic? Food/resource guarding vs. submission when being called are two very different things. and as the others said..dogs are NOT wolves. Similar body language maybe..but in no shape or form should you be sticking your hand in...

The pup could very well just be over excited..many puppies are pretty mouthy and especially during "play time".

You will have to explain the situation more than that. We are going to need a bit of history here.

What is your girlfriend doing when this happens?

Where are they usually?

Any warning signs?

Body language of both the person & the dog?

I'm very sorry for your loss..but am SO glad to hear you aren't blaming the dogs and are thinking of it in a logical manner. Some people first think with their emotions and it often turns out bad. I can't imagine the guilt, but the only thing you can think of really is lesson learned right?? Take fr...

How old is your pup? And dogs are like people in the fact that some foods they will like more than others. If you decide to change it up, do so slowly, go buy a new bag and add 1/2 a cup of the new kind in place of the old kind each time adding a little more in the old foods place. Helps keep the tu...
