Well, all I can say is this dog is like a little baby. DAG, he finds twist ties, strings, and other things. When I say 'What do you have now?' He runs behind the chair and the little bouger knows what he has in his mouth... he 'shouldn't have.' NO! I do NOT yell at him. Hell, he's only a puppy/baby.

    I had a similair situation with my puppy Chico, and now he knows how to drop it. Patience will pay off, but do not yell just use a very stern voice. A simple 'Chico drop it' works. Michelle

    We NEVER yell at him. We just say firmly 'DON'T' or 'NO' but he thinks we are playing and 'runs' behind the couch when he gets anything he 'knows' he shouldn't have(I say this because he/they know) gotten. Another thing we have to be careful about is leaving Kleenex/paper towels laying around. He tears them up in strips and when we go to get them from him he runs behind the chair. It takes both of us to catch him and them I will 'try' to open his closed mouth and get the stuff out. A couple of times he actually swollowed a piece of a Kleenex so we couldn't get it from him(that little booger).

My little guy 3mo. long haired Chi is positively adorable. Trouble is I think he knows it and pretty much does what he wants when it comes to using my entire house as his toilet. I take him all many many times. He watches the older ones do their business and just scratches and whimpers constantly at the door till I let him in. It seems that he thinks its wrong to go outside to do his business or else he just likes the soft carpet on his butt whichever the case can someone please help me. The older two look at me as if to say what are you gonna do about this mom? I have read and tried just about everything. I watch him like a hawk and when he starts to circle or make some movement like he's ready to go I run him outside. I can sit there with him for a good half hour with no luck. As soon as I bring him in and turn my back he leaves a little gift for me. Please help

    Many swaear by those wee wee pads.  The dog goes on the wee wee pad inside the house and then you take the wee wee pad outside and it will go on the wee wee pad outside.

    I have a cat litter box, he doesn't eat the stuff in it. We are still working it out but Chico's getting the idea. I tried the puppy pads he wouldn't even go on them. Michelle

    Our spoiled guy will walk around and around before he goes #2(he doesn't do that when he pees). After he's done he will smell it. He does not lick it or eat it like I have read some dogs do. He will come in and just look at us like 'Hey, I did 'something' aren't you going to give me something?' Well we usually give him a treat when he does this.

    They aren't suppose to need as much excercise as larger dogs. As you say, she's healthy and happy, so it sounds like she's getting what she needs:)

I recently bought a japanese chin and he does well until he gets really tired then if you touch him he goes crazy and bites and growls at you. But that is the only time he is usually really calm and quiet. Does anyone know why?

    Many companion pets have similar traits.  They are 1000% fine but if they are tired or sleeping and you disrupt them, they can get a little ticked off.  Many humans have this trait as well.  I don't think it is that your puppy is overly agressive - just that it wants to sleep or rest.

Our little guy is 4mos. old/4.5lbs and is chewing on the baseboards in the kitchen. THIS is our only problem. He is taken outside to play almost every day and is put to sleep at about 11pm and sometimes does not wake until about 8am.
Is there anything(food wise) we should keep him from eating?

    How can we NOT spoil this cute little guy(Jay) even if he is bad every now and then?
  • vicest - 2012-05-30
    Your dog needs toys and more toys. I get my dog a new toy every 2-3 weeks and then after you get a bunch of toys rotate some in and out so the dog is always mentally stimulated
  • Babbs Coady - 2012-06-01
    Just a few odd ideas, try getting the dog a proper teething bone for one and at the same time wash the baseboards in something that will be safe but bad smelling and tasting to the dog (like people, dogs differ in what they may or may not like the taste and smell of.) I found this worked for many of the dogs and cats I've had over the years.

    Our dog has plenty of toys. This was about 2-3mos. ago and he does not do it anymore BUT does bite/chew on plastic chairs outside and wooden legs inside every now and then. One thing I have found and that is the rubber colored ring on a Target prescription bottle(large size) our dog LOVES to chew on. I DO monitor this as one he almost swollowed a couple months ago as he chewed a piece off.

    I once had a small mixed breed that used to chew on the furniture. Our vet said that she had a vitamin deficiency and put her on a canine multi vitamin. the chewing stopped. Hope this helps
  • jim - 2012-08-30
    Our dog has his own favorite toys and others that I have made. I always supervise his chewing on toys, bones and other things. One of his favorite toys is a teething toy for babies. He'll knaw on that all day. I've had to take off a couple of parts that he got lose and started chewing on. Little buger.

I have a 2yr old long hair chihuahua, named Emma. I took her to the groomer for the first time, and apparently wasn't clear as to the medium hair trim that I wanted for her. She came back shaved like a yorkie. I was devestated. How long will it take for her hair to grow back? Thank you.

    She will look pretty good in about 2 - 3 months but takes about 6 months for the full coat to grow back in.  You could wait till the groomer was asleep and shave her head.  LOL   - an idea.
