(There is also a maths question in 2.) This is sort of like a quiz : What kind of small and shorthaired dog is perfect for: 1.A kind but busy man who works on his computer at home most of the time? 2. A nice girl who has a cat and a rabbit and goes to school from 9:00 and stays at school for 6 hours? 3.A funny 16 year old older-brother who plays on his computer most of the time? 4. A caring mum who does the housework all day and cares and cooks for her 2 children and her husband?

I've had my adorable long haired chihuahua for about 3 weeks and we have really bonded. She is an awesome little traveler in the car and a perfect companion. She is 3 years old and very well trained and obedient. My only concern is that she doesn't like any hard dog food I've given her. The vet gave me some healthy samples, but she turns her nose up unless I coat it with cottage cheese. I don't think this will be good for her long term. She wants people food but I'm avoiding that habit. The vet thinks she might have some skin allergies, which restricts her diet even more. Any suggestions??

    Sounds like you have a great little companion. As far as allergies... here's some thoughts. 1 in 5 dogs suffer from some type of allery, but it's hard treat until you know what the allergy is. There are two different categories of allergies, internal and external. One of the most common types of internal allergy triggers are food. It can be alleviated by avoiding foods with a high gluten content, corn and 'filler' products. When choosing a dog food, the most important ingredient is should contain for your Chihuahua is meat. It can be chicken, beef, fish or lamb, but they need roughly a 40% meat content.Some of the most common Exernal allergies are reactions to Shampoos, conditioners and soaps as well as Flea bites.

I have a year old male pom who is beautiful or handsom i guess. He is well behaved and does not bark when told. my vet said it was the first pom she never heard bard. he only yelp a little when he got his shots. he is playful, very cuddly and wants to be with me 24/7. He is 5.6 lbs and is exactly as the pics show. my only question is he hates dog food but loves beef, chichken, fish, some vegs and fruits. is this good or bad?

    As you can see in the diet section above, 'a diet of dry food due to the likelihood of tooth and gum problems'. So you'll have to be careful feeding him other foods.

    Rottweilers are usually pretty active puppies so I would be concerned as you say she is weak.  A good puppy food and water should be all you initially need.  If you feel she is weak, I'd get her to a vet and have her checked out.  Could be worms or just sick - could be nothing but you would want to know.

    Feed your puppy with carbohydrates food. Like mashed rice,yam, feed cereal etc

Hi, I got my Ghost 6 yrs ago, I had Goldens prior. He is by far the smartest dog I've ever had, sometimes human! I can't say enough about my guy, the things he does how he acts towards me, other people and animals is uncanny. Never chewed, caused mischief, or has separation anxiety. Everyone in my town knows my dog , he's like the town pet! So happy I got him , not that my Goldens were great dogs and love them . He is another level in smarts, what he does is unbelievable. Can talk on and on but will end with, people if you want a challenge for the first two yrs, then he starts mellowing out then Writers are your dog, not a day goes by that I'm not amazed or hr gets complement , like what a gorgeous dog !

    I've had a female GSP that I adored for her loyalty, but my female Weimer, is even better & more intelligent. She 'tells' you what she wants and feels. You never feel lonely with this breed. Very regimented.

    You could try crate training him, as they won't soil their crate because that's where they sleep. It can help teach them control.

We've had our Japanese Chin for about 1.5 years. She is a sweetie. The previous owner had her for about 3 years. My concern is that she had these scratching fits every couple of days. She starts barking and yelping until we go to her. She stops when we call her name or pet her. The previous owners gave us drops for her ears, but they do not help. Is this common?

    She is most likely demonstrating a food allergy. Ear infections, Scratching, hotspots, buttdragging or obsessive Paw licking are all symptoms. Just had yo put My girl on venison and potato diet!

I just rescued a dog it is either a shih tzu or a lhapsa opso not sure. I was wondering if there were any distinct differences betweeen the two?

    I own both a lhasa and a shih tzu. A huge difference is the length of the legs. The shih tzu has much shorter legs.
  • Ellie - 2013-02-10
    I've got a Lhapsa opso who's 11 weeks old and they're quite similar to a shih tzu.
  • Rosie Veg - 2014-01-10
    A Shih Tzu,(Sheed Zoo) has a smaller Muzzle,like the Pekinese,large eyes,and only has long legs if it's a reg sized Shih Tzu,a toy on will be short about 11' tall, about 9-16lbs and 9-16' long along their back. Males are always on the larger side. I hope this helps? Any q's just ask

Any one know how keep short haired Chihuahua from Shedding so much?

  • Clarice Brough - 2013-04-28
    Shedding can be caused by stress, a food alergy, and Warm weather can contribute to shedding too, as they go through a coat change. A bath as well as daily brushing will help. A high qualtity dog food can also help reduce the shedding some.
  • Anonymous - 2014-01-09
    My dog is shedding a whole lot more than usual it's never been a bother but she's white and now just lately I've noticed that there's more so I combed and brushed her last night, but she just came and gave me some lovin and when I put her down I noticed a lot of hair, way more than it should considering I combed and brushed her butt just last night! She's my first dog so I'm wondering if there's something wrong?
