Assuming the dog is AKC, here is what I know:
Limited registration is used by breeders to protect their bloodlines, and/or discourage breeding of a dog that they feel should not be bred. You cannot register a puppy that is born from a dog w/ lim...

I'd bet the diet changes are to blame. Just be patient with her until you get her used to the brand of food you settle on. Keep putting down lots of newspaper and you may want to take the divider back out. If she can't help pooping due to an upset st...

Sounds like you may want to adjust her feeding schedule, so you are around when it is time to poop. Maybe a small feeding in the morning and sufficient time outside afterwards (maybe in a puppy pen while you are getting ready to leave-?), then a larg...

Try cleaning the areas where she has peed with vinegar. She may be smelling previous accidents, and thinking that is where she should go.
I would keep her confined as much as possible on a surface that is easy for you to clean and well coated wi...

Baby food is regular food pureed, right? So some things are safe to feed your dog, and some are not.

Oh, that is awful. You win! I thought I might take the prize with the story of my dog swallowing a dead rat whole, when I tried to take it away from her, but your story is definitely worse!

You are right to be cautious, especially with the puppy mill situation in PA. You will find people running ads, saying the pups are raised in a home, underfoot, and in reality they are from puppy mills, and these people are essentially selling them o...

I'd try to pay attention to whether it happens more often when she's had a busy or exciting day, like when she goes to training, or when you are home with her. She probably likes hanging out with you, and doesn't sleep as much then.
I've seen sw...

Your expecting too much ,too soon.
A dogs brain is not fully developed until about 4 mos. of age, and true LEARNING begins then. You can start TRAINING earlier, with use of treats, but you are relying on instinctual behavior at that point. A cer...

Sometimes it takes awhile to bounce back. Did you keep her on puppy food while she was nursing? You could still mix a little in with her regular food, that would probably help. I've recently started adding a little scrambled egg to my dogs kibble, in...
