    It's funny, but you don't realize how bad a dog barking can be until you experience it. We had neighbors who left their large dog in their yard for hours each weekend. They lived about a block...

    First, buy dog spray (Direct Stop) and carry it. Then, you try to avoid using it. Avoid the most potentially explosive situations, ones where there are a large number of casual/lazy dog owners in...

    I was one of those people. Which is funny, because I HATE off-leash dogs. But my reason for being one of those people was that I've seen a few too many people who take the very reasonable...

    She had a pit bull she was allowing to run loose? Did you really need to go further than that to find a reason to say "No, sorry, they're all taken."

    Actually, I can think of one reason to give...

    If the house with Scout's mini-me is in the neighborhood, the odds are everyone involved will eventually run into each other. The truth is, it's probably not their dog. Personally, I think I'd ask...

    Yes - if you have a normal dog and have control over him beyond a piece of leather or nylon. If you have a dog who will, if approached by a loose dog or a child or a butterfly, lunge and try to kill,...

    Granted, terriers are tough and will let you know if they dislike something, but Scotties are too big to be lifting by the throat (she basically used the throatlatch as a handle) and tail. I'm not...
  13. Man arrested for lacking rabies vaccination on dog

    A couple's large dog gets loose and is picked up by animal control, which wants proof of rabies vaccination. They never get it and eventually issue a citation; the couple either ignores it or never...

    There seems to be some confusion b/c of the title, but I thought the idea was that the guy's off-leash dog was in a normal, aka not-a-dog-park, section of the park.

    Anywhoo. While I see the OP's...

    I'd call. The neighbor/daughter sound like good people who'd want to know and in their position, so would I. Could it end in disaster? Sure. But you can't control that and it could end fine.

    Root canals take a long time and involve getting a crown afterward. Pain? Not really. It's removing the nerve so really, there should be no pain afterward because the nerve is gone. The most...
  20. Is one parent's quality more important in dog breeding?

    Private in-home dog training is genius

    To overcome New Tiny Dog's hostilities to Dog, we hired a trainer who comes to the house for an hour every couple of weeks to train NTD's owner to train NTD. This is amazing. Not cheap but not all...
