Edit from anon earlier: I should have been more clear that they’re fine in their crates! They go right in with a Kong or a nylabone and are totally okay. I initially got them crates because if I left them out they would destroy anything in sight and my home really took a beating. I hate to crate them and want them to be able to have free range of their home (and doggy door) without sacrificing my furniture/belongings. I believe they have separation anxiety but I don’t know how to fix it.

Ahh, ok. Well there isn’t anything wrong with crating – especially when it comes to your dog’s safety. It’s better to have them safe and confined, than free ranging and ingest something harmful or foreign.

I can’t really give proper advice without knowing your pups. A trainer would be your best bet if you want to have them free roam. I know stories of dogs left alone together, that have lived together for years, but end up getting into lethal fights while their owner was away. Not to mention how they could behave with outdoor access unsupervised. If they have such destructive personalities linked to separation anxiety, crating is probably your best option.

Sorry I couldn’t be a better help!

Speaking as a professional groomer– deshedding tools are ESSENTIAL if you have a double coated dog. Rakes, regular combs, slicker brushes are all ways to go– but you need to do it regularly! Get your dog used to brushing AS SOON AS YOU GET THEM! If you do it regularly, you won’t have to sit and do it in large amounts, causing irritation and potential brush burn. In addition, for dogs with DENSE undercoats, like goldens, samys, bernese mtn dogs, etc, a good blowout also does wonders!

Hiya! My pup, a King Charles cavalier, is the most affectionate puppy I’ve ever known. But whenever she comes up to me, her tail and her head are always lowered! Does that mean she’s scared of me or something? How can I fix that? Thanks!

Nope! Typically a dog will greet a person with a low head and a low wagging tail as an act of appeasement. Attempting to make themselves seem like a non-threat to avoid confrontation. This doesn’t mean they anticipate you to be a threat, just that they are greeting you with sort of a white flag gesture; We’re friends!

We where on our way to town today and some man threw out this sweety. The man wouldn’t stop but we honked at him. We stayed with him for about a hour before the sheriff came for him. We already have five dogs but we going to check on him Wednesday to see how he is in the shelter. I think we might adopt him because I don’t want him to be put down because of some moron.
