I have one female Dachshund named Jake. I got her from my Gram when she was about two years old. (Gram named Jake after that old country song that goes, "If I die before I wake, please feed Jake")

Jake is going to be 12 years old this coming February 18th, 2009, and she is the Pretty Princess Puppy. She is very spoiled and she adores human men - she hates her "brother" JD (a male yellow lab/chow chow mix) and is always scheming to take the best bones and treats from him, as well as trying to steal the best spots on the pillows we have for them.

She is my darling girl, and she loves to have yogurt in her food once a day. A simple table spoon (as in, a spoon from the table where we humans eat) of plain, sugar-free yogurt really helps with her skin and her coat, and it must taste wonderful to her, because she's all the time begging for it at the fridge!

We have had our mini Dachshund for 3 days and I have fallen in love. My husband and I have 5 kids, and we love "Fash". However he is not eating his dog food which is puppy chow-what kind is best for him? He is 8 weeks.

    I'm not sure what kind of food is best for your puppy, but I've had puppies before and so I've learned that if they don't want to eat their solid food at first. They'll eat it if you add water to it to make it good and soggy. Hope this works for your pup!

    We kept a bowl of Eukanuba (ground up with blender). I would mix it with warm suplemental puppy milk.

    Try to add a water, hot water, to make it soft and wait for 5 minutes before you give. Try Beef pro dog food, before my brand is eukanuba but it doesn't like my mini dachs.. so I switched it to Beef pro.

    Mine is a very pickey eater I tried everything moist hard soft. Now he eats soft and moist but I have to sprinkel his food with NUPRO. It's a dog supplement. He loves it and it makes his coat nice and shinny. You can get it from ebay. It's much cheaper.

Dobermans DON'T need wheat or corn; in fact a lot of dogs are allergic to wheat and corn. A raw diet or a high quality kibble, preferable grain-free, would be a much better choice.

I have a Sheltie named Butch. He and his friend Double the Bubble are pals forever lasting. DTB {Double the Bubble} is a Doberman Pinscher, Sheltie, German Shepard, and Cocker Spaniel mix. How could you hate cockers?

Watched a good family movie last night 'Goodbye My Lady' with Walter Brennen and Brandon Dewild. It's about a boy and his rescued dog - a Basenji, made about 1956 - Black and White.

I looooove great pyrenees. I have one named duddley. He is the clumsiest dog in the world, but the sweetest. One thing about great pyrenees is that they sit on you :), they bark all the time and they never listen to you.

    Obviously you are the wrong owner for a large dog like that. How do you go out and get a dog and not teach and train him?
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-04-18
    I love them also. I They eventually grow out of the clumsy stage but mine would fall down and over frequently. They love to be close but they are sure clumsy. Maybe because they grow so fast. Mine never barked a lot. Would there be a reson yours is barking that you can think of? Something in the yard or needs to go out - anything? Mine listened but I also trained them using little pieces of hot dog th basics COME SIT STAY HEEL once they had me trained, we didn't have any problems. Good luck. They are so soft.

    My dog is a 9-month-old GP/Walker coonhound mix. He exhibits mostly GP characteristics. He is bright, calm, and has been easy to train. I must say, he is the clumsiest canine I have ever seen, especially for the first several months, as he would frequently fall down. He is very, very soft and eminently huggable. I have learned that if he barks, I had better go check it out.

    I have found the Great Pyrenees to be gentle, intelligent, obedient, loyal, and all clumsiness gone by four months old. He had six basic commands by nine weeks old. I have had mine since 8 weeks old; he is now three years old, a mere 150 pounds, and owns the security of the sheep flock and the ranch. Barking is nocturnal, when predators are near. No losses here or at any neighbors since he has been here. He is always working unless ordered otherwise. My coming and going is not his problem. Watching him work, day or night - he is Awesome. I believe God shares him with me. Best training is for a Pyr is found in Livestock

    I have a GP hound mix and love him to death. He is a gentle giant and has most of the GP in him cuz he loves to sleep and is a couch dog for sure. I go to work eveyday and he guards the house while I'm gone for 9hrs... then when I come home I take him for a walk and he's happy. At midnight after sleeping for a while he will get up and gaurd the house till morning than he goes to sleep when I wake up. The hound in him is crazy for food so he eats very fast so I'm always in the room to watch him so he won't eat so fast he gets sick... but really he is the best dog I have ever had in my life and I've owned a lot of dogs. I also own a border collie/shepherd mix and he's a male as well and they get along very well for 2 males. They look at each other like brothers and when one is not in sight the other dog is looking for him. I love them both very much and whoever said 2 males can't get along is false cuz they do great together. I was very strong minded with both when I got another male. I worked very hard to make them both understand im the pack leader and fighting is not allowed and today the hard work paid off cuz they love eachother.

I got my little boy Charlie about 2 years ago and don't know really how old he is I'm thinking maybe 4. This little dog is so smart and loveable I have never had a dog love me so much we are always together and he has to give me hugs and kissess all the time and I do the same to him. He hates the cold and will not stay outside and we also have a 5 year old Lab/Newfie mix and she loves to stay outside so its kinda hard but she don't mind and they get along wonderful. The only problem I have with my chug is he always pees in my house he won't poo in the house I once read that a chug will pee in the house and mark everywhere so he can show you how loyal he is and would even die for you I don't know how true it is? If someone can help me with a way to train my chug to stop peeing in my house and he is very smart so I know he knows what he is doing he is just so stubbrn.

    Chugs can be house broken just like any other pup.  As to why he is doing it in the home - I really couldn't tell you.  Is he neutered?  When you say  marking his territory - if he is neutered that usually helps immensely and puts a stop to it.  Just not housebroken?  Easy to do but take a ring of keys (ones you don't use) and keep them with you.  If the Chug looks like it is going to go potty in the home or starts to go potty in the home, throw the keys down at the ground and say 'NO'.  Keys make a big noise - do not hit the pup with the keys but close to him is OK.  Big noise usually scares them and stops the peeing and then you take him out.  You can try it.  Some have put keys in a soda can but that is large - the keys just can be in your pocket.
