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

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

My dog just swallowed a sock!  It was full dress sock, and I want to know if I should make him vomit or will it just pass?

I have an 11 year old (her bday is today!) german shepard.   I noticed that one of her boobie's is thick and lumpy.  It doesn't seem to bother her at all.

Anyone out there encountered this? 

Thanks,

Teir

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.

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?

Caty is from the dog rescue I volunteer with. It's really bothering me that we don't have the slightest idea of what breeds Caty is to tell potential adopters. I recently started thinking she might be a Pit Bull Terrier/Lab mix, but something for those two breeds is NOT lining up. She has to have something else too. Border Collie? I don't know :P

When Caty first came to us, she weighed a healthy 35 lbs. She's been in a couple foster homes and each time she has gained a couple pounds. She just came back from a foster home (they had her for about 3 months) and she has gained at least 15 lbs. Caty now weighs a hefty 60 lbs for such a small statured dog. Definitely needs to lose some weight now that she's back in our director's hands.

Caty is approximately 7 years old. She has a very short glossy brown and white coat. Her tail is like a hook and she has a long nose. Her body is compact and square in proportion. She has a deep chest and high set rose ears. Her bark is kind of raspy and high pitched. She is very mellow and very smart. She is also very athletic. She is really sweet and sensitive and attaches to her people really quick. She's great with other dogs and kids. She likes to chase cats.

What breeds do you think Caty has in her?


Thanks!

There are specific factors we teach a Dog to learn Swimming by instinct.
Sniffing, for instance, occasionally in embarrassing places. Barking,
too, and begging for foods scraps are also downloaded onto dogs’ inner
computer systems at the factory.



Then there’s swimming. It appears so integral to getting a canine that
we’ve even named a stroke after them, the dog-paddle — so you’d presume
that is an additional thing that just about every canine is born knowing
the best way to do.



It turns out that you’d be wrong. Not just about every canine
understands instinctively the best way to swim, and some cannot swim at
all, Wendy Diamond, the founder and editorial director of Animal Fair
magazine, informed TODAY. Dogs’ aquatic skills are so misunderstood, in
fact, that she put with one another a checklist of water safety tips for
canine owners.



How to teach Dog to Swim



1.Take the canine to an place where there is not lots of noise. This
could be considered a quiet pool or even the shallow component of the
lake. puppies will have difficulty concentrating or may well get anxious
if there is truly lots of music and movement nearby.



2.Put the lifejacket inside the dog. While it is not required, it
permits the individual helper to hold their arms away the canine through
the instructions without the need of dread of drowning. It also
prevents accidental drowning in after instructions if a canine is within
water without the need of a helper swimming nearby.



3.Enter the pool or shallow lake. once the canine is learning to swim
within pool, 1st acquaint him using the entrance toward the pool.
Continually put him within pool at the similar area and help him walk
down actions if there are any.



4.Hold the dog's midsection and hindquarters and permit him to paddle
utilizing all 4 legs. ensure he is not just utilizing his top two legs
-- otherwise he will sink on his own. It should certainly start looking
like he is running. His rear finish should certainly extend up and his
neck should certainly point down. utilizing foods getting a reward may
well help get him into this position.



5.Continue the lesson for an additional 10 minutes. Use rewards to show
very good habits and speak utilizing an upbeat and good voice.



6.Show the canine the best way to exit the pool or shallow lake. This is
especially significant within pool since receiving out utilizing
actions or perhaps a ramp may well be the simplest or only way for the
canine to exit. invest time reinforcing the exit process.



7.Wash the canine away with shampoo after the swimming lessons. Dry out
his ears and confirm his eye for irritation from your chlorine as well.
