my puff is very nervous and spiddles' when putting her on the leash to go outside..... she does stay with me outside until she gets a spazze attack and runs around the house like crazy but always goes right to the front door when done.... i have to have her on a leash in case there are dogs out running around. inside the house she won't be trained if i tell her to come here even using a baby voice or treat she hides. training like teaching her stuff she acts nervous and shakes and is way to eager to just eat the treat i am very good at training my pets even my cats but she just doesn't seem to comprehend what to do and is like scared i got her when you was 7 months old and i know the people that i got her from so i know she wasn't abused. what can i do to calm her and train her? i know that they are good dogs to teach special kinds of tricks with would be nice to see some of them. thanks

My puff has horrific allergies I can't seem to control. I just read today wool may be an issue so when I get home I will eliminate that too. She is on dry natural food made from sweet potatoes and fish and only drinks distiller water. I put natural oil in her food to prevent dry skin. We wash all clothing and bedding in detergent for sensitive skin and her as well (puppy shampoo). And still issues! Itching all day and night to the point none of us sleep! Help! I can't afford a couple hundred dollars for a test right now, well not before I try all my options! Hope someone out here in cyber world can help poor little Dixie Bell!

    I have been told by a vet that Benedryl works which sorta makes sense as the test things on dogs. However, I don't know the dosage at all for the dog. Can you just call your vet and ask?

    just adopted zoe, sweetie pup w/the most awful oozing skin. We started with grain free limited diet, and then cooked foods. For baths, started using vet pyoben shampoo with a light buf-puf, it dried everything up, including the healthy skin, started another regimen (all natural homeopathic with the exception of vet's shampoo) right after bath-with a paper towel and sensitive type of witch hazel gently wipe all the skin down, then a light spray made of purified water with drops of tea tree and lavender oil, then finish with calendula cream or gel. she loves this treatment! Took 6 weeks or better to clear it up, and then she eyed me eating the croissant and couldn't help myself but to share, ugh..2 bites and 2 days later back to square 1! Shes Gluten Intolerant! I now cook her food and add it to the royal canin because she wont eat that alone, give them choice they become picky children :) Good luck with your pup! Good luck wit your pup,

I have a Long Hair Apple Head Blue Coat Chihuahua. We got her at 5 months; she had to have heart surgery. Doing Great Now. Has problems with her left knee, holding off on surgery as long as I possibly can. She LOVES people, loves kids, hesitant about toddlers as they try to chase her. She does not like other dogs, just one she grew up with. Went through all PetSmart class and is a Certified Service Dog.

WOW! How wonderful is my Noots. He is a apple head chawawa. After reading your reading the information on feeding him... I must change his food. I wondered why he was getting so fat so quickly. He is only 1 year old. Ceasars dog food is NOT good for him. So....Noots is only getting brown rice and a little chicken from now on. I wonder how to get rid of the dark half moon developing under his eyes....it seems crusty?

I got a dog about 6 months ago, it's small and a mixed breed. He is sharpai, german sheperd, and great dane. I'm going crazy because I can't get him to stop chewing on every thing and stealing too. And I can't seem to find a dry dog food he will eat. Can you please help me.

    Chewing is a natural behavior in puppies, but in adults its could be related to any number of things. It could be that he doesn't know what's acceptable to chew on, could be bored, or may have some type of a separation anxiety or fear related anxiety. Maybe he craves more attention or possibly you haven't established yourself as the 'pack leader'yet providing enough discipline and guidance. There's a bunch of different things you can try like increasing interactive time, providing specific toys for him, and setting acceptable rules. You may want to consult a behavior professional. The food could be related to the same problem, but its a good idea to have him checked by a veterinarian to make sure he's healthy.

We recently adopted a 5-6 year old red heeler who we adore! He is loving and active, but he doesn't play with toys at all. He doesn't even seem to recognize what they are for! I have read that these dogs love to play, but he would rather just be loved. We think it may be that he was abused somewhat before we got him as he is skittish. Any thoughts?

    He sounds like a really nice dog. You're right, these dogs usually love to romp and are actually bred to herd. It could very well be that he had a rough first few years in his life, making him skittish and just wanting to be loved. But he sounds like a really nice dog, and it sounds like he has a great home now.

    I have a friend with a dog that they adopted that was the same way, and had not interest in playing with toys. This summer they watched a friends puppy while they were out of town. Surprisingly, their dog learned to play from the puppy. You may want to take the dog around puppies playing to teach the dog to play. My friends dog now loves stuffed dogs toys and gets very excited when he gets a new one.

    What I believe you are referring to is back in the 1800's there used to be what is known as the Red nosed Pitt Bull - brought about specicifcally as a result of inbreeding.  Today what is called a red nose pitt bull is a coloring - not an actual breed.  Obviously, there should be some descendents of the original red nosed pitt bull but as to who is actually descended from that group of pups vs who just has the coloring - I don't know how you can know.  Some say they do exist and some say they do not.
