Pen2, you made lots of good suggestions.:)

HAve to add a couple things though.
Training is essential. Don't expect this puppy to be housetrained immediately. His sphincter muscles won't be developed until he is 4 months old. Right no...

There's not much chance of training the chi to do exactly the same thing as the other one does. Each dog develops their own preference for how to let you know they need out. While your one sits on a mat, the other might come to the door and scratch,...

It's best to create a fenced in area where your dog can dig. In fact till up the area of the yard where you will allow digging and plant shrubs to hide the digging area. Dogs don't just dig when they're bored. They could be the happiest and most fulf...

Be fair to your little dog. He has a tiny bladder and likely won't be able to hold his urine while you try to run him down to the ground level and outside. You could start moving the puppy pad slowly toward the door to your balcony until it's eventua...

YOu don't want to jerk him around. It could hurt his neck.

The best thing to do would be teach him a Leave It command.

I wasn't really talking about the 17 year old, but you ARE right about that. At that age they're young adults. But you still can't allow any kind of snarling. It's different than a growl. Snarling is an impending attack. I think maybe the OP meant t...

Your maltese is just putting the lab in it's place. It's a social hierarchy kind of thing. I wouldn't worry about it unless your

You must keep in mind you will have to train a young dog.that means you will likely get jumped on quite a bit. But maybe a toy breed like a chihuahua, or yorkie, or so...

She is object possessive if she growls over toys.
Any dog snarling at a child is a danger. Even if she has not bitten yet, snarling is a prelude to a bite. basically the dog is warning you and if you don't listen you WILL get bit. It would not ...
