potty training relapse after two years?!
Hi everyone :) I am new to this site. My two year old lab mix mocha and I just moved to buffalo from florida. We don't have a fenced in back yard like back at home but the first couple weeks she went potty on the leash just fine. Now for the past three weeks she has been pooping and peeing in our guest bedroom. Mocha is not crate trained she has severe separation anxiety and rips all her toenails off. I don't know why she all of a sudden started going in the guest bedroom. I welcome any suggestions you guys have for me. We are looking for a professional trainer but I just got a new job and I need to wait a little before I can afford a trainer.
Does anyone have any idea what breeds my dog could be?
5 pitbulls occasionally fight!!
I am a proud owner of 5 pitbulls ! Trouble(dad) Mimi(mom) frankie(son) Emma(daughter) and Julez(daughter) , My babies seem to get along most of the time but every now and then they will fight , and its a bit scarey i am able to break them up and everything seems to be fine but this past week while i was trying to break up the two baby girls one of them bit me i know it was not intentional and i did not have to go to the hospital. It just seems to happen for no reason either because on is getting more attention them the other or because one wants to go out before the other. I know they are a pack and from what i understand they have a pecking order but i could still use some help will this get worse as they get older ? please help!!
Im really worried
i have a pitbull mix about 3 yrs old. I need somebody to try to help
Do I have to put my dog down?
I have an eleven year old Rhodesian Ridgeback. He has kidney failure, a large (possibly cancerous) outer abdominal tumor, and ulcerations in his intestines. My husband is giving him an herbal concoction daily that is supposed to help his kidneys mixed in with baking soda, which is supposed to help his ulcer. He has BARELY eaten for the last week. He has lost almost 20 pounds and is lethargic. Although he loves to go on walks and go to the park, he doesn't have a fraction of the energy that he used to have. My husband is very upset and is trying everything to help our dog. He doesn't want to put him down, but his quality of life is dwindling. What should we do? Help!

What Food your dog cant eat
Your dog may be eager to eat "people food" from your dinner table or finish leftovers after a meal. It's safe to share certain foods with your dog. But some common foods and drinks can be harmful or even deadly for dogs.
Don't share these items:
Even small amounts of alcohol can be dangerous for your dog. At parties and other events where alcohol is flowing, place open drinks where your dog can't reach them.
Keep household items that contain alcohol, such as mouthwash, in a safe place.
Alcohol can be found in other surprising places. Dogs have gotten into trouble eating rotten apples, which can produce alcohol when they go bad.
Symptoms of alcohol poisoning in dogs include:
VomitingExcited behaviorClumsy movementsLack of energyAvocados
Avocados and their leaves contain a toxin called persin. It can be harmful to dogs and many other pets.
Avocado poisoning in dogs can cause symptoms such as:
Keep bones from chicken, roasts, and other meats away from your dog. He can choke while eating bones.
Also, bones can break into sharp pieces that may cause bleeding and infection inside your dog.
Yeast dough can be harmful to dogs for several reasons.
After a dog eats dough, it can produce gas. This can cause the stomach to become twisted or even torn.
The rising dough also produces alcohol, which dogs should avoid.
If your dog has eaten bread dough, he may have these symptoms:
Swollen bellyAbdominal painYou'll know your dog has abdominal pain if he has symptoms such as:

I have started to set aside one hour a day to get some exercise for me and by my boy. We have been running, but thats become a little boring. Does anyone have any ideas for an hour long activity that I could do other than running?
