Cattle dogs are also known as heelers, this is because they bite at the heels of cattle they're trying to heard. If your dog is just going after their heels, this is probably a result of the instinctive behavior inherent in cattle dogs. If he was go...

I've never owned a Cairn Terrier but I had a friend who did. It was a wonderful energetic little dog that just loved to play and be loved on. He was also protective, and would bark at strangers until he was 'introduced'. Good luck with them!

Just because a breed has incidence of those doesn't mean the dog you will get will. All dogs, purebred or mixed breed, can have a wide variety of health problems, it's a breeder's responsibility to breed dogs that are tested to make sure they don't ...

Those might be 'hot spots' from itching. The dog scratches itself so much, it creates sores from the chewing and biting. You need to take her to a vet and have a skin scraping done of the hot spots to make sure there's no bacteria or worms in it. Som...

I'd pick up a squirt bottle and fill it with 1/4 vinegar, 3/4 water and give him a squirt in response to growls. As I stated in earlier posts, this is dominance agression. I do not put up with my dogs growling at me for any reason. As far as your do...

This most likely is dominance related agression. Or possibly your cattle dog just may not like other dogs, since she didn't come into your life as a puppy. Either way, the cattle dog is trying to exert her dominance authority over your lab (which is ...

oh yeah, regarding teething, I've heard that you have to have a variety of things for a puppy to chew on, like say 10 different things. If your dog starts chewing on something inappropritte, swap it out for the puppy toy instead, so it learns what it...

Get a crate! Crate training can *really* help with potty training and preventing the dog from shredding your house when you aren't home. Not only that it can give your dog a secure place where it can feel comfortable and retreat to when the world is...

Have you been in contact with the breeder and asked if any other dogs they've had or bred have had the same problem? If you got him from someone who awas a good breeder, they'll welcome questions you have. I'd look up more information about it on th...
