  • Two questions about puppies?

    My puppy is ten weeks old . She is energetic , fun and playful .

    My puppy is ten weeks old . She is energetic , fun and playful . However when I take her outside on her harness and leash , she will roam around the back yard , and jump and play and roll around in the grass. She will chase insects etc.... My concern though is that she will not walk willingly on the leash . If you try to walk her on the sidewalk she will not lead , nor will she follow . I just pick her up and carry her , after she has been outside for 15 minutes and it is time to come inside. Is this typical of some dogs to not walk on a leash and just simply be happy roaming around in the backyard ? Or is it unhealthy for her to not go on walks? My second question is if the puppy potty training spray works? My new puppy which I brought home two weeks ago ( the ten week old ) which I described above , has been pooping and peeing on my area rug below the coffee table . How can I get her to use the litterbox which I have for her in the bathroom? Can I spray the potty training spray in the litter box to attract her and encourage her to use the box?

  • Is my dog pregnant?

    I have a Jack Russell, she's not been done as she's exceptionally timid and she's always inside. I was away while she was in heat coming to the end of her heat. And she was let out to pee and someone didn't close the gate. She was gone for a few hours until she was found. That was about 7 weeks ago.... show more

After about...5 days she was throwing up, she's eating a lot lately and two of her nipples are larger and producing milk. She's also whining and howling if I don't stay with her constantly. She doesn't have a large tummy though perhaps slightly bigger. I was thinking maybe a phantom pregnancy? Or one or two puppies that's why she's so small.

  • How long do I have to keep my ex-boyfriends dog before I rehome him.?

    We broke up three months ago, and he left both of his dogs at my place before moving out. One dog I'm really attached too and want to keep, but I do care for the other one as well. At the moment I'm financially stable to care for one dog, and I've given him more than enough time to get his life back on... show more
    We broke up three months ago, and he left both of his dogs at my place before moving out. One dog I'm really attached too and want to keep, but I do care for the other one as well. At the moment I'm financially stable to care for one dog, and I've given him more than enough time to get his life back on track. He's got his own place now but just refuses to get them, and he won't return my phone calls. If I'm being honest he didn't really care for either of his animals; I'd been feeding them, walking them, bathing them, etc. Now, it's like he's abandoning them. Though I don't want to take the other dog to the shelter, so I'm going to rehome him, and legally adopt the girl. I want to do everything legally.

  • My dog growls when an animal goes near her toy, but doesn't growl when humans go near her toy, why's this?

    When we go up to my dog & I'm near her ball, she'll just look at me & the ball, nothing more. Hell I can even take the ball & even take it out of her mouth, she won't do a damn thing. But then you put another animal in the picture, say for example a cat or a dog - all they have to do is walk... show more
    When we go up to my dog & I'm near her ball, she'll just look at me & the ball, nothing more. Hell I can even take the ball & even take it out of her mouth, she won't do a damn thing. But then you put another animal in the picture, say for example a cat or a dog - all they have to do is walk past the ball & my dog either eyes them out, snaps at them or growls at the animal who she think is wanting her ball. Why is my dog okay with humans (not just me) messing with her ball, but won't stand for it when it's with an animal?

    Our puppy who we got at 9 1/2 weeks who is now 11 weeks understood to poo outside very fast and has only had a couple of accidents which were our fault. However he can’t seem to learn to pee outside. What can I try?

  • Why has my dog found a recent love for his crate?

    He's never really hated it. We used to crate him when we left, then we realized hes very good in the house when left alone. He has recently been hanging out in his crate when my girlfriend and I are on the couch.

  • Why does my puppy follow me everywhere I go?

    I recently got a black lab puppy and he’s such a sweet baby. But he follows me everywhere. If I get up to get a glass of water he gets up and follows me and puts his paws on my legs. Why does he follow me?
