    Do you like small breeds?

    Some dogs are large sized and mostly used for guarding the compound against intruders. These are the ones used by the police to assist them arrest thieves and other criminals. Sniffer dogs are also used to locate illicit items or stolen property hidden in locations where it wouldn't be easy to...

    Do you give your dogs supplements?

    Just like us, dogs are likely to suffer from nutritional deficiencies. This is more crucial when we come to the issue of vitamins because dogs hardly consume fruits and vegetables and even if they do, its not easy to reach the recommended daily intake (RDI). This results in artificial starvation...

    Your first dog.

    I'm not sure if this has been posted here before, but I still think that our first dog ever makes quite a big difference when it comes to our life relationship with dogs in general, and most of the times the first ever dog experience is a really good one. The first dog that I had was called...

    fila brasileiro thoughts

    Recently, some friend of mine offered me to adopt a fila brasileiro female pup. And I really don't know, fila brasileiro breeds are overzealous guardian dogs, an adult one can't stand the sight of strangers. I have a wide backyard suitable for a dog breed of that size, but I'm afraid that is...

    Heya!

    Greetings. Since I was a kid, I've been a proud pet owner of adopted mutts, my first one was already an adult. Every mutt I raised grew healthy and happy. I can say I never neglected my pets, no one of them had any serious disease. But still, I'm far from being an experienced pet dog owner...

    Intelligence of dogs

    My mother (may she RIP, lol) used to say that if you look at the roof of the mouth of dogs, you can tell how intelligent they are. I can't remember what it was, but something about, if there was more red/pink color, they were smarter than dogs with more black color on the roof of their mouths...

    Show Me Those Mutts!

    So I've noticed that a lot of users here have purebred dogs. Here's a post where we can share pictures of our precious mutts! If you have purebreds and want to share a picture, that's okay, I mean, who doesn't love to look at dog pictures?! I had 3 dogs, I now have 2. The one we had to get rid...

    Find a responsible Breeder

    I was referred to my breeder by a friend who is the ultimate dog lover. She's a walking dog dictionary. So I trusted her when I told her I wanted two healthy German Shepards that weren't bred through family members. I had watch and didn't want pups who are the offspring of mother and son...

    Removing the Dewclaw and Docking

    I just watched a video where a veterinarian removed the dewclaws on puppies and then docked their tails. I get that the breed standard demands it that but I view it as a from a mutilation. I grew up in a place where there is ice and all the dogs depend on their dewclaw to cling to the ice if...

    Make your own dog shampoo?

    I used to make my own dog shampoo when I had my lab. I started with either a liquid castile soap from the Dr. Bronner collection or NSP's Sunshine Concentrate. Then I would let her choose her aromatherapy essential oils. Since dogs have such a strong sense of smell, it makes sense they would be...

    Protection?

    Can dogs be trained to protect or is it inherent? My lab was never trained to protect, but on the rare occasion she used her voice, it was to warn me of a bad person crossing our yard to the house next door or that a snake was approaching while we gardened. Once, while we were hiking toward a...

    How did you and your dog first meet?

    My lab and I met when she happened along at a garden party I was attending. The host went out front to check on his sprinklers. When he returned to the back yard, he opened the gate with a flourish and said, "Guess who I ran into out front?" as if she were a VIP human. We all wanted to take her...

    Hiyas!

    Hi everybody. I'm Belinda. I don't have any dogs at the moment, but hope to again when my situation is more suitable for sharing with pets. I've had several dogs since childhood. Now that I'm almost 50, I prefer rescues.
