After Parvo Training?
I recently bought a chihuahua/shih tzu mix using Craigslist, knowing that she had not been vaccinated. I now KNOW that this was a bad decision, but at the time, I considered her lack of shots to be only a financial inconvenience, not a possible crisis. Low and behold, the puppy began showing symptoms...

Teaching a pivoting heel- trouble standing on object?
I'm trying to teach my young (2-3yrs) Border Collie mix to place her two front paws on an object as a prerequisite to teaching a pivoting heel. She's usually very smart and very food motivated but doesn't have the highest drive. If she can't figure something out, she just stares at me...

Aggresive or not??
Hey eveyone. I need urgent help. I have a border collie mix. She generally gets along with dogs especially at the beach. My biggest fear is that my dog will ever become aggressive, because then I have failed her. Small things make me worry ie. She growls and barks at dogs in the car when we pass owners...

Dog's eating habits suddenly changed
We adopted Brutus one year ago yesterday, and from the very first day he was a big ol' eater. He's an American Bulldog, healthy weight, healthy coat, ate EVO red meat up until about 3 months ago, when I found out about, and switched to Taste of the Wild. Both my dogs immediately loved it...

Chewing up crate bedding
We figured out pretty soon after getting Houston at 10 months old that he liked to chew. He is 1- 1/2 years old now. He is my 6th cocker spaniel and I never really had this bad of a chewer before. He initially slept with the crate pad that our dog who passed away in March had, but he tore holes in it...

Toothy grin or bad behavior?
My 6-month old chihuahua girl seems to bear her teeth at times when she sits on me. No growling, just teeth and shaking. Is this a sign of aggression? She doesn't snap at me if I move, but she stares off to space in the moment.

I'm devastated:(
I have 2 dogs - a 3 year old female English Pointer mix and a 3 year old female chihuahua. They were raised since puppies together and have always gotten along. Last year, I adopted an old, grumpy, (but absolutely amazing) female chihuahua. She did not like my other dogs and would often growl at them...
