Our chin is 4 months old and still wants to pea everywhere unless she is shut in one room with her pea pad, or of course outside. She is also extremely active. She wants to run like she is a race horse and is very picky about her eating habits already. We are not at all sure how to break these habits. I don't mind the activity because we have a fenced in yard for her. Will she out grow the wild bitting and running. thx al

    My chin is 4 years old and still runs figure 8's through our home...

    I find it so funny.... he has to get his midnight run in and play with his toys before he sleeps... he has been known to play so rough with his toys that his toy ends up on the top of the book shelf... they are such cute and sweet dogs...

    Regarding house-breaking - that is a difficult challenge - mine still marks and therefore wear's baby diapers : )

    Mine has never been one to bite but did chew a bit as a pup, but grew out quickly...

    Hope this helps : )

We just adopted a miniature schnauzer we named her cupcake she is about 11 months old and what a great dog! She gets along great with my golden retriever who's 10yrs , my terrier mix who I also adopted he is 14 yrs old and my two cats. She brings them back to life with her energy. My daughter absolutely loves her and cupcake doesn't leave her side. This breed of dog I compare to my golden retriever smaller breed but just as friendly and lovable. I am so happy we have her in our family now :]

    I had my long hair chihuahua 3 days,
    she just had her first litter of puppys,
    her owner had to move and could not keep her, sold the puppys,
    she is having a change in her life at this time, I want it to be easy as possible for her.
    I have 2 more puppys 1 full blooded poodle and a mix breed poodle, they are all small dogs.
    Any advice on how to help her and feed her, make her as comfortable as we can?

I recently bought a westie for my son. The dog is male, about 12 weeks old. He is in good health, but his head seems small relative to his body. Does the head normally develop more slowly than the body, or is this something we should be concerned about?
Thank you very much.

I've given my bull terrier cabbage. I also read they like beef, but is it safe to give him raw beef? I'd be afraid it could be contaminated. What is the best way to give him wheat and beef? Thanks, TH

    To be honest, a good quality kibble/biscuit has got to be the best way to go. In the uk, most other owners, myself included, try and steer clear of ANY red meats. We feed our 3 year old boy on just turkey n rice kibble and he weighs just over 70lbs! He has no skin problems and is a very laid back bullie. Speak to your vet and get some advice from them

I am getting my first Pomeranian tomorrow. She is 4 years old and weighs 3 and 3/4 pounds. I am so excited that I can hardly sleep. She is a definite small dog. Hoping her disposition fits in!

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.
