This is Bear. She is approximately 28 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds. She isn’t dog friendly and is wary with strangers, but loves cuddles and hiking. She is very protective and strong.

(Bear was DNA tested – the answer will be posted later tonight! Happy guessing!)

Tuckered out after all their Christmas gifts!

Tuckered out after all their Christmas gifts!

My Boy gets left to himself for a good 8-9 hours while I’m at work, and more and more he’s been peeing in the house while I’m gone. My mom is starting to get really upset, even though I clean up thoroughly. I can’t afford to have someone come every day to let him out, and I don’t think it’s fair to get frustrated with him since he can’t get out to pee. I’ve heard small apartment dogs sometimes use indoor pee spots like puppy pads, is it abnormal for a large dog to have one? What can I do? D:

If no one is home to let him out, maybe ask a friend? Or try to take a break from work to rush home real quick? I wouldn’t recommend pee pads because you are encouraging him to eliminate in your home. Yes, you’re giving him a special place to pee, but either he can potty in the house or he can’t. Crating may be a solution, but 9 hours is a long time.

This is my sweet Maura. We adopted her this past year and she is an approx 2 year old lab/pointer mix. I love her so much and she helps me in so many ways. Above any toy or food, she loves attention and cuddling the most! If it was up to her she’d follow me wherever I go, like a protective shadow.

Hey, we all know the physical problems that can crop up with pugs, but what about behavioral issues? When training a pug, what are some things to focus on?

I believe potty training is the only difficulty you might have. As long as you actually train them early, they can do well with obedience. You just don’t want to treat them like a little baby or they’ll get little dog syndrome.

But I mean, the health issues are a lot heavier than the fact that they are trainable, great for families, and can be lazy or athletic. They would be a great little dog, but you really have to research and find someone that breeds for a longer snout and open nares.

You also have to worry about their eyes popping out. Literately. Popping out. You have to be careful not to squeeze them or pull on a collar. And you have to routinely clean their face wrinkles or they get infections.

Dogs can’t have dairy, right? So why is the Puppichino a thing–starbucks gives dogs a cup full of whipped cream?

Dogs are like people when it comes to dairy. Some can digest it, some can’t, and overall it isn’t necessary. It really depends on the lactose content because most dogs are lactose intolerant. Something like whipped cream has 4 times less lactose than actual milk, same with cheese. Even ice cream has two times less lactose than milk. So it is all about moderation and if your dog can handle lactose. A puppuccino will be safe for a majority of dogs.

This handsome boy is Gearhead, a 5-or-so year old pit mix…

This handsome boy is Gearhead, a 5-or-so year old pit mix available for rescue at Oakland Pet Adoption Center in Auburn Hills, MI. I’ve been fond of him ever since his arrival to the shelter in July and I’m surprised no one has picked him up yet! Gearhead is a happy go lucky guy who wants to make friends with every human he sees. He’s a real lover boy who’s always up for pets and snuggles. He’ll even get on your lap if you sit on the floor. He’s friendly with other dogs and, in my experience, pretty much indifferent to cats. Gearhead has a medium-high energy level and loves his toys (he relieves stress by chewing, especially tennis balls!), but off-lead exercise must be kept to fifteen minutes a day for the next several months since he just finished his heartworm treatment. Overall he’s a goofy, affectionate pup who is a favorite of several shelter volunteers, myself included. You can visit him on petfinder here, and feel free to shoot me a message if you have a specific question about him!

My dog is a terrible walker. As soon as we get out of sight of the house, he refuses to go any farther. He wasn’t always like this (he’s almost 10 now!) but it’s gotten worse with age and he’s overweight and needs his exercise. I’ve tried driving him to a neighborhood he’s not familiar with (he won’t leave sight of the car) and having a friend drop us off a few blocks away (he won’t leave the spot where we were dropped off). Any tips? PS. He hates parks.

With the combination of old age and extra weight, he could have arthritis or even hip dysplasia. He could be in pain and not comfortable with walking. I would have him checked by your vet.

Hey just wondering if you have some insight on this situation: My boyfriends dachshund used to be very well potty trained and he could let her roam his place freely. Then suddenly she started going pee everywhere as if she had never been potty trained and he has to keep her confined to the bathroom usually because that’s where her bed and stuff is and she won’t go potty there. Do you know why she’d suddenly forget her potty training?

Sometimes a UTI can be the cause. I would take her to the vet and have her urine checked before looking at behavioral issues.

Can I ask a question? I recently got a 7 month old puppy and she’s perfect in every way. But she won’t sleep in my bed next to me? I thought that was a sign that the doggy loved their owner? She always wants to sleep on the floor in the hallway.

She will sleep wherever she is most comfortable. Don’t take it personally! It has nothing to do with how she feels about you, no worries. My dog sleeps in my bed in the winter because it’s cold, but sprawls out on the floor when it’s hot. They just want to sleep, that’s all.
