My Chihuahua is always licking. She licks her paws, her legs, or her back. Seems like a nervousness thing. I brought her to the vet and she didn't have any skin issues.

Male dog chasing recently fixed female???
I recently had my female dog spayed (A day or so ago) but from the moment I brought her home, (since I brought her through the door) my unfixed male dog has been acting as though she's in heat. Popping his jaws at her, trying to sniff at her or spots she's been laying, attempting to bait her with food or play. He even attempted to mount her to no avail. (I was standing right there) I've been keeping them separated in different rooms, but it doesn't deter him. We have one smaller unfixed male as well, but he's showing no interest in her at all. I don't understand why my male is acting like this.

How many hours should a dog sleep
Does anyone know how many hours a dog should sleep for? I would imagine age plays a factor, but it seems like my puppy is always sleeping? I know I should not complain, but he is very active and I try to run him as much as possible.

Doberman with behavioral issues
Hello. I met a family a couple weeks ago with a 4-year-old Doberman Pinscher, named Diablo. I love this breed! I grew up with a Doby and owned my own for 14 years until she passed. Anyway, they have 5 children and not much time to exercise him, train him, or love him! Not sure why she bought this dog. Anyway, they want to give him to me for free. This dog was attacked by a couple large dogs as a puppy and, understandably so, Diablo is extremely anxious around large dogs.
Crate training a puppy-advice please
I have a 10 week old staffie and am using a crate for him - at night I put him in the crate and cover it and he is ok cries when he needs a toilet break normally after abut 5 hours so doing really well, sometimes he does mess in the crate but I think he just cant hold it and I misjudge the toilet break times during the night so not all his fault, on waking and after eating and after an hour of play , I take him outside where he toilets fine, he uses puppy pads when playing in the house if he cannot get to the door in time butI have limited these to two and most times he runs to the door , I have an open planned house so when I am cooking or cleaning, I cannot keep an eye on him so a friend gave me a puppy play pen - I put him in and he is happy playing as he can see me he is happy having a nap in there , but even though I place a puppy pad in it, he toilets on his blanket..not even asking to go out..am I confusing him using the crate and the pen ? I cant cover the pen as it has no top and is quite large, and I thought it too big for him to sleep in of a night , I hate having to put him in the samller crate during the day as there is not a lot of room to play freely like the pen, just because I cant watch him when doing housework it doesn't seem fair, but I am not sure how to stop the blanket toileting- he came from a litter of 8 in a crate with puppy pads in of a night and on the floor during the day and he does use the pads out of the pen ,with us just not in the pen any ideas how I can stop him doing it?? he has not had his second injection yet so walking to tire him so he can be crated to sleep is not an option at the moment.
