Things I would think that you should consider are: Space for crate(s) or space in general as you will have to keep the separated while they cannot be supervised. Will you emotionally be able to let a dog go to it's forever home after sometimes many months of bonding with it. Will your current animal...

I like to use baby wipes to clean off our dogs feet after a walk.

Neither of my dogs like it when they walk through salt. Thankfully it doesn't get the cold here very often or for very long when it does.

We were walking Tucker our AB at the park one day and he got attacked by two other dogs (not supposed to be an off-leash park but two attacking dogs were off leash). Our AC was concerned with how Tucker was acting towards other dogs after the attack because quite often dog personalities can change a...

If you take a piece of paper and draw around the cyst you will have a record of the size and then you can semi-accurately tell if the size is increasing or decreasing. This is what our vet suggested we do for Tucker's lipoma.

You really shouldn't feed raw and kibble in the same meal as the stomach processes the food at different rates and isn't great for the dog. At least this is what my experts tell me.

You can try giving her a piece of really burnt toast. The charcoal helps firm up the stool. Canned pumpkin usually works really well too.

:bully: :goodpost: Feeding chicken as your only protein could cause long term problems. If you are going to feed Raw or BARF you need to do your research first or work closely with an experienced person.

My two dream all the time. Muay really gets going most nights with the feet twitches it's really cute. Tucker likes to howl in his sleep.

Muay also does the lip smacking noises. It sort of sounds like she is licking something but she isn't.

I believe that puppies should receive vaccinations, but I don't think that older dogs require vaccines every year, and I don't vaccinate. I think if you are concerned about whether or not your dogs vaccines are at the levels that they should be then have a titre test done at your vet and only vaccin...

I wouldn't trust them alone together ever.

I've heard about a bulldog that killed a great dane one day when they were left alone. It broke both of the front legs of the dane and got it by the neck.

We have that problem only in the car. Muay likes to lie on my husband's lap everywhere we go in the car. She layed there for 6100 kms in September on our road trip. We try to make her go in the back but she just comes right back out front. In the house, Muay lays on the ottoman so she can watch for ...
