I have a one year old black and tan chihuahua named Coco Puff. I brought her home when she was 8 weeks old and introduced her to my Beagle, Chow/Shepherd and German Shepherd right away. They were taught from the beginning that they must be gentle with her and she loves them all. At bedtime and when no humans are home, she is confined to the upstairs and the others are kept downstairs just so there is no unsupervised excitement where she might get squished by accident. She is quiet and gentle and loving and playful. I plan to go through certification to have her be a visiting therapy dog for the elderly or ill.

Ok so me and my boyfriend just recently adopted a four year old red nose pit, he is very friendly but not in the right shape a pit should be in, what is the proper diet and exercise to bulk him up a little and get him into shape?

    First of all what kind of shape is he in. Is he overweight or underweight. Was he a fighting dog a bait dog. What is his history. For overweight dogs you need to get it off him and start working him at least 3 times a day walks, runs, tug of war anything that will make him work. Also go to your local feed store and find some food that fits your wallet and that's going to be great for him. Taste of the wild is awesome food. Nurto is also good. If you have a costco in your state get their food. 40 pounds for $20. No fillers and has everything you want to give him. Or you can do the all raw diet. Either way you need to work him out in order for him to get in the shape you want him to be. Also try going to your vet and asking if there is anything that they would say to do. Google it also. I hope something that i had to say works. Oh and also get him a backpack and put empty water bottles in it then after a week start to add more weight. Walk him an hour a day 2 times a day once in the morning once at night. If you really want him to become a great healthy dog do that and you will have a wonderful dog. Happy bullying :)

I have a Pyrenees/Lab mix. She is amazing with kids and other pets, though she has little patience with small puppies. Older dogs and cats are fine, and she thinks our guinea pig is her baby.

Hi, I had gotten Quiki 3 weeks ago from my daughter and her boyfriend. He abused her for 6 months, until my daughter moved out and took her. I have her now, and she is just soo submissive. She is extremely thin, very picky on food. Though my daughters bf only fed her a cup a day, she really needs 3 cups. She was eating good, then stopped so I slowly changed her dog food, she was eating that then again stopped and I slowly changed it back to the same dogfood. She stopped and hasn't eaten in 2 days. Now I have an 11year old chow, my chow doesn't mind her and they get along. I walk her, take her to parks every day for 2 hours except wednesday
We walk for 2 hours, and I walk her at night for an hour before bed. She just drinks water. She refuses to eat. I really thought if she uses all her energy she would be starving but so far nothing. She don't chew bones, she chews napkins. She hides a lot, always pees in the house and looks at me if I am to beat her like the bf did. I don't get it. She hates my bird, my chow protects the bird, they had a quarrel which my dog won, she backed down. She is friendly to EVERYONE all dogs at the park. But her listening to me is getting worse. She doesn't come when I tell her, which is strange cause for 3weeks yesterday was the only day she refused to listen and now this morning she peed all over the rug. Can anyone help me?

    I have helped a few friends of mine with dog issues and I have learned (from The Dog Whisperer) that our energy really comes into play with troubled animals. Have you checked your energy while trying to get him to eat or to come? Ceaser Milan says one must always be patient and never show any negative emotion as dogs pick up on this. Sounds like she is getting enough exercise. I would highly recommend you watch Dog Whisperer or buy his books. He has totally changed how I train my dogs and it works so much better with problems that are hard to deal with. Bless your heart for looking after this girl.

I just adopted a Blue Heeler/Husky mix. I live in an apartment and she does just fine. I provide two long walks a day and she has toys. She is a VERY good girl. Doesn't chew up content to rest around the apt until she is walked. All around a fabulous dog. My first dog in 20 years!

We have two "Heelers", named Jondy and Jake. We got them from a rescue in Fresno, CA>, as 10 week old pups. Both were easy to house train, and except for the constant need to chew bones, shoes, plants, ETC. We sure love our cattle dogs! Both are VERY protective of the yard, and my wife and I. They also LOVE to go running with us when we ride our horses, but have never bothered the horses. If I could trust other folks horses we would take them on group rides as well.

    I was interested to read your post. My husband and I recently got a new puppy. She has Heeler in her. She also has Border Collie, lab and Scotch Collie. The BC is unmistakable in her, for she has the colouring and the patchy markings. She has the spotting of the blue heeler. Interested to learn more about any behavioural things you may have encountered with your Heelers. So far, ours is five months and training is coming along well. She loves everyone. She loves her older brother (a ten year-old American Eskimo), but tries to heard him. He doesn't seem to mind. But her ankle nipping is crazy. She doesn't really do it anymore with my husband, but for my seven year old son and I, she tends to go wild.

    We really love this dog and see that she's making a great family pet.
