My Great Dane appears to be dehydrated. . .but shouldnt be.
I have an almost 4yr old Great Dane and the poor thing is always plagued with numerous health issues, repeatedly and constantly. Im not sure which problem is worse. She gets dry spots randomly all over her body, her nose is so dry to the look and feel, that it feels like course sandpaper and looks "cracked". Her eyes get so bad they too appear to be dry and crusty, and at times give her eye sockets the look of being hollow. She also gets ear infections a couple times a year. She has been to the vet numerous times and been treated with topical and pill form antibiotics, ear cleansers, daily fish oil pills. the symptoms clear up but always return at any given time. I make sure her water bowl is always filled, even when she's outside, Im faithful with her daily fish oil pill, and we also use the topical antibiotics when the rash starts to surface. When symptoms are full blown, she appears to be extemely dehydrated. I now have a new problems, that she hasnt seen a vet for yet. She had a spot on her chest that had the look and size of a pencil eraser. We thought it was gone but it actually grew to appx 2"x2" and for lack of better words, has the look of a brain. It does not seem to bother her is any way, she does not lick or scratch it, but I fear it may be a tumor. Does anyone have suggestions on how to keep this dryness under control, and does this new spot on her chest sound like anything you may have experienced with your dog.

I have had Cagney and Lacey for 11 years and do not want to give up Cagney. Cagney, Lacey and I have been in the same house hold with my spouse for 5 years with her dogs Bailey and Sarah.
Help! My Dog Keeps Attacking People Out of Nowhere!
Lately, my dog has been attacking people out of nowhere. She'll seem to be cool with them at first and then out of nowhere, she'll attack - as if she doesn't like the way they're standing or looking at her. The most common attacks are at our apartment's dog park. One happened just last night: We were the only ones there for a while. Then, a young couple comes in with their little dog. They came in, my dog seemed fine. We stood there talking, then the woman bent down to pet my dog, my dog seemed cool with it. Then we went back to standing around talking and then all of a sudden, my dog attacks the guy out of nowhere! (Explanation of "attacks": She starts off by growling, then lunges at the person, then jumps on the person and looks like she's biting them, but she never actually bites). Luckily, no one has ever been injured, but it's still very stressful and embarrassing. She's been doing this way too frequently lately and I'm getting very tired of it. Please help. I don't have the money for training so I'm trying to seek help online.
guys my rott wieler is too cute but like other dogs of the same breed my dog is not aggressive at all. i want it to be a bit aggressive in nature... what should i do
Help!! My dogs are eating poop!!
I have two golden retreiver females. One is 1 1/2 years old and the other is 1 year old and they are sisters. I have tried several things including: over the counter anti-poop eating pills, hot sauce, crushed pineapple in the food, pumpkin, meat tenderizer and cottage cheese in their food. I now go out and pick up their poop right after they go but sometimes i miss some and they'll find it. Does anyone have any advise?
I have a 6mos old mini schnauzer, Sammy. from the beginning he was great doing very good with house breaking. He slept on the bed never a problem, now literally has stopped his routine. Usually eat and outdoors, does his business back we are fine. Now eat outside for up to 15-20 minutes walks around then just looks at me and wants to go in. We go in and within walking away from him he will very deliberate doe his business. I have started to crate him and he will do it in his crate. He was neutered and that's when this behavior began. His personality just changed I'm angry and don't understand what to due. I've never had a dog that will go in the crate. He has a very deliberate look when he does it. Their personality shows on their face that's what drew it to me. What advise can someone give, because I really worry it's possible a problem of the breeder. 8 playpens with up to 5-6 puppies at different ages inside the dining room of the home. HELP PLEASE

trying to breed
My female Yorkie is slightly bigger than my male. She is in heat and has been for a week. She allows him to mount her but he is missing the mark if you know what I mean. Does this mean she is not quite ready and will find a way to match up in a day or two or is the size difference preventing it. She really seems bored with the whole thing. Help I am brand new to this.
Dog OCD about food
Does anyone have any tips for handling a dog that is obsessed with food? My dog is constantly in food mode, no matter where he is. If he is outside, he is eating what ever he can, and when ever food is around, he cant focus on anything else. Any thoughts on how I can try an break this habit?
