My husband and I adopted our siberian husky, Eskimo from a local dog shelter a few months ago. Eskimo was abandoned by his previous owner, but, is generally well behaved. However there is one big issue: my dog does not obey my husband. Eskimo is loyal and follows me around every where I go, but, when my husband takes him for walks alone, Eskimo tries to run away or chase cats. If I am around Eskimo will do everything my husband tells him to do. But,as soon as I leave for work the dog begins to wreak havic on the house, in the backyard, and even on my husbands clothing or personal items. We plan to take Eskimo to obediance training soon, but in the meantime does any one have any advice on how to solve this problem?

Currently I'm networking to find a female that would make a perfect match for our siberian husky male, named Onyx.  He is four and a half years old, AKC registered, father is champion of his breed in Texas.  We have the pick of that champion's litter.  Onyx has beautiful  markings and a majestic stance.  He is extremely atheletic and is a high energy, strong willed dog.  For pictures by email, please send a request by email to luisdotero@yahoo.com.

Please email us if you are serious about breeding, and have a healthy pure breed AKC registered female siberian husky that is well tempered and beautiful.  P.S. His breeder is completely supportive of breeding Onyx, and will help me answer any of your questions.  If you look up information regarding personality/temperment tests, Onyx scored a 3 as an 8 week old puppy.  Thank you for reading our posting.

Thanks,

Luis & Sandy

 

We adopted a 1 1/2 yr. old male Yorkshire Terrier from an online community (CL) this past Friday night...We were told that he was "peeing" in the house, although paper trained. We were also told that he was not neutered and they were told that this may help.
Upon bringing him inside the house, he "marked" his spots...uugghh! We do have a female Yorkshire Terrier who is 2 and spayed and he will not leave her alone...understandable...anyway, this has made for a long weekend with switching them in and out of a kennel to keep them apart.
He is scheduled to be neutered first thing tomorrow (Monday) morning and the appointment cannot come soon enough for anyone in the household...
We also noticed a bit of aggression with his food and/or treats toward both humans and our female (although all she did was walk past the kennel while he had a bone)
...my questions are...

What behaviors will neutering help us out with? Will he stop "marking" in my home? Will he relax and leave my female alone? Will the aggressive behaviors subside?

We were told that we were his 4th "family" in his very short 1 1/2 yrs, so it is expected to a point, that he needs to develop a sense of trust with us. I don't want to give up on him too soon, but can't risk his biting someone or him mistreating our female...

Does anyone have/had these type of issues before? And if so...what did you do???

Any suggestions would be appreciated...

Thank you!!

He really is a sweet pup and I hate to give up on him

My dog never jumps on the couch with me, and I would really like some cuddle time. Can anyone help provide a trainning tip?

HOPING TO FIND OUT IF ANYONE OUT THERE HAS EXPERIENCED A SIMILAR SYMPTOM IN THEIR PUG.  WE HAVE TWO PUGS AND A YELLOW LAB.  ALL BEST BUDS.  MY FEMALE PUG, WHO IS FIVE YEARS OLD HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING DIFFICULT BREATHING EPISODES.  THIS ONLY OCCURS AT NIGHT, AFTER WE HAVE GONE TO BED.  SHE WILL WAKE UP AND NEED TO SIT UP IN ORDER TO BREATH PROPERLY.  USUALLY FOR ABOUT ONE TO TWO HOURS SHE WILL SIT UP WHILE HAVING SNEEZING FITS (A LOT OF SNOT COMES OUT OF HER NOSE DURING THIS TIME)  MY VET THOUGHT IT WAS STENOTIC NARES AND WE OPTED FOR AN OPERATION TO CORRECT THAT CONDITION.  ALTHOUGH SHE DOES NOT SNORE  NOW, SHE IS STILL HAVING THESE BREATHING EPISODES DURING THE NIGHT.  I NEVER MINDED HER SNORING, BUT I FEEL TERRIBLE THAT SHE IS HAVING DIFFICULTY BREATHING.  WONDER IF MAYBE ASTHMA COULD BE THE CULPRIT.  DON'T HAVE COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN MY VET ABOUT HER BREATHING CONDITION.

Hey All!

I'm probably getting Jake spayed in two weeks (sooner than expected) because i realized how much of a chore it is going to be to sepparate both dogs every 6 months, and the risks of having my Boxers breed. Since i won't be able to be at home for 6 hours (but some of my family will be).. i was wondering if he can be O.K. left alone in the house for two hours? And is there some kind of caring i need to do to make his recovering an easy phase??

Thanks All!

Hey everyone, this winter I got such a bad case of cabin fever, and now that its sunny and warm outside I just feel like dancing!  What does eveyone think of my moves, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqbVbPvlDoM?

 

 

I was wondering what my dog is trying to tell me or say everytime he gets excited he will bring things (shoes, socks, anything close to him) in his mouth to me or my husband. Also he will lick my husbands feet alot what is he trying to say to us?

My dog is the first dog I've ever owned. There have been a couple of times where he has developed an infection in his ear(s) that I think may have been caused by water getting in his ears during baths. What's the best way to deal with water in the ears of  dogs? Is there a method of washing his head that minimizes the chance of getting water in his ears?
