Re: How much Exercise?!

I think the guide is trying to inform rather than dictate and no need to worry too much about some rough and tumble with your dog. I would say though that our canine chiropractor (who treats one of our senior dogs for stiffness in his joints) did tell us, when we took a puppy to her for a general ch...

Re: How much Exercise?!

Hi Scott and welcome to the Forum :-) We follow the Puppy Culture Protocol with our puppies and there is a link here to explain about appropriate exercise and a chart: https://www.puppyculture.com/new-appropriate-exercise.html https://www.puppyculture.com/new-exercise-chart.html It is very important...

Re: Barking

I agree with Julie that a good professional behaviourist may be the best idea to assess just what is going on with your mini and the barking and to suggest an individual approach to her situation. A few points though in a general way: Looking back at previous posts it does seem that your mini had a ...

Re: Simple crate training question!

Hi Roz and welcome to the Forum :-) I would usually have a puppy on 3 meals a day by 12 weeks of age and have the last meal at about 6-6.30 p.m. However, from your post, it seems that you have moved on quite quickly from 5 a.m. to 6.15 a.m. and it may be just too big an extension of the time. You co...

Re: Schnauzer mugs for Christmas

It can still be a problem trying to get good quality images of schnauzers with uncropped ears and tails even after so many years since tail docking was banned in the UK. So many "stock images" and imported items come from the USA or are designed for an American market. We really struggled at times w...

Re: Is my dog dying? Please

Krystian - I am so sorry to read your sad post. I hope you have found a vet who can help you and your mini with a good diagnosis and the right treatment. The vets should be the best ones to do this as they can examine him and run tests. Thinking of you and keeping fingers crossed that you have found...

Re: Fun Canine Video Advent Calendar

Hi Julie - I am not sure why the link has not taken you through to the advent calendar sign up. I have tried copying and pasting the link again and it seems to go through to the Advent Calendar with a button to say sign up for the Advent Calendar here. The free lessons is a different sign- up and sh...

Re: Simple crate training question!

No worries about asking any question regarding your mini - if anyone on the Forum can help, we will :-) It doesn't sound as though the crate is really an issue, just getting her used to having the door closed. I would try to work on that as often as you can. If she is awake when you go to shut the d...

Re: Breathing rate

Hi Gemma and welcome to the Forum :-) It may be that your puppy is dreaming. A puppy's brain undergoes massive development in the first few months of life and this can mean they breathe fast, twitch and shake their limbs when asleep. However, if you think there is anything more serious, do let a vet...

Re: Pulling on lead

Hi Kim and welcome to the Forum :-) It is always hard work with a rescue / rehome dog when they first join your family although Carlos sounds a lovely boy. You could try turning him every time he pulls - walk forward and as soon as Carlos pulls, just turn round and go back so that he begins to see t...

Re: Simple crate training question!

Hi Najmeh and welcome to the Forum :-) When you say that you have just started crate training, is this after a period of time when Sormeh has been with you and not in a crate at all or have you just got her recently? At 4 months of age, puppies often start to feel fear and anxiety about situations w...
