Post your dags.
Here's my day she's a mutt butt
left one is a shar pei and right one is a JRT mix.
New dog. Is it normal for hounds to have audible farts?
currently doing an aging photo group from 3 weeks to 1 year old.
That is one cute little dog. What's her temperament like?
I'd kind of like a full Shiba one day.
Anyway, these are my two.
Extremely loving, but like they say, independent.
Training her constantly, but because she is my first puppy (I've had a couple other dogs before, just not quite young) I can't tell if sh'es hard to train.
Made the mistake of letting her use potty pads inside instead of just sucking it up and letting her outside as a young one, now she's still trying to get out of the habit of not waiting for me and just goes.
I walk her very often, 2 or 3 times a day, both 10 minutes walks and play with her a few hours every day as well. She tires me out, because she's so energetic.

She needs longer walks than that anon, playing doesn't make up for that. That dog needs a good 40 minutes straight and some where that you can let her off leash to run and sprint, otherwise training will only get harder as she grows older and more independent and bored.
I don't know. The rule of thumb is usually five minutes of forced exercise per month of age per day for larger dogs. Shibas might be smaller, but they are prone to hip dysplasia, so depending on how old she is, she might be getting the correct amount of exercise currently.
Of course, it will need to be increased as she ages, but over-exercising puppies is a bad business.
Just recently moved to a new place, we have a few feet of snow here which isn't really a big deal because it's higher in elevation, but she doesn't like to be outside much longer than that because of the cold. I also walk my wiener dog with her who doesn't have as much energy and also get cold easier. I have sweaters and booties for the both by the way.
My boyfriends not to sure about the neighborhood yet so he wants me to stay relatively close to home until I can take safer walks.
>tfw live in Quesnel
>one of the shittiest places in Canada
>All of the fucking first nations people here just use their govmint muny to drink alcohol.
>we're close to a reserve.
Until Spring and Summer I won't really be able to do a lot of walks, because the sun sets later.
And unfortunately, there are no dog parks to let her off leash because she is being difficult to off leash train. Plus, even as a pup, she already can outrun me.
Yeah, I'm not surprised. I hear you often can't ever let some Shibas off leash, because their recall is shocking, they have independent streaks a mile wide, and their prey drive is way high.
My mix had the worst recall for the longest time.
Guy with Foxhound mix here.
The SPCA told me my dog used to be a hunting hound. Is there any chance I can discover if he has some hunting commands?
I go running with him everyday, but I know he'd be happiest if he was able to just cut-loose and run. He got loose once when I tripped on a trail and he looked back at me, realized he was free and I just saw him weighing his options and bam, he made the decision to just go for it. I was super worried he'd never come back, but he seemed in utter bliss to be able to sprint full speed up and down hills. I found him further up the trail drinking out of a stream and he just trotted up to me like "hey man where ya been?"
He gets along fabulously with other dogs and kids, but he's so independent, that I don't believe he'd come back until after hours and hours if I let him loose and he got far away on some scent.
She's gotten out a few times already. I haven't really weaned her off of treats yet so once she starts to run I just say, "Pekoe, wanna treat?"
she'll look back at me look for them at the distance without moving. Then I'd toss them in the air so she'd see them then she'd bolt it back to me. She's an easy catch in that sense.
PJ annoying the cows
Bless her little ADHD heart
I've no idea she's a rescue. I think she's a cattle husky mix . But I dunno hers another shot of her
Make a game of it. When you call her ad she looks back and comes toward you, either clicker or cue her that she is doing something right and run away with the treat in sight. It's been a week and my cattle dog sprints to me on almost every recall. Start off on a long line, say 50 m.
Overwhelming compulsion to rub that belly
Grumpy ass land shark still quite young guesstimate at 7-8 weeks no idea on breed thinking a malamute cuz them massive paws and legs and the wide ear placement. But never seen a mal with clover so could be a mix of some sort.
And damn the amount of energy in the thing walk her around on a 50 feet rope all day long and still bites and jumps after a 15 minute nap.
My border collie mix. I got her from the pound. She's got endless energy and it keeps me fit. I love her. :')
My dag was a stray and had just gotten over heart worms when we adopted her from the shelter.
She took a lot of work but she's a really sweet and playful dog. I used to be worried that she would leave but she's gotten out several times and has always come back. She has a weird habit of staring at people though and licking Windows.
We think she's 7 years old and a Black and Tan coonhound mixed with something.
Best of luck. As long as you can make it worthwhile for her to come back, you'll have a better chance of getting him to do what you want.
>parents are gonna kill my dog cause he's got acne on his back they can't get rid of
should i massacre everyone in the household yay/nay? i fucking love that dog
My pup Louie, 3 years old.
As a puppy he was a shelter dog. I still need to call and find out if he was born there but his first family he lived with had to give him up after a year because they had a baby who started to get rashes when touched by him. I got him from my friend who I used to work with. My friend had him for 3 months and then went into the military so his mother took care of him. The mother never took him on walks, ever, and after 9 months he learned to pee inside their apartment. Now I have him. He's the sweetest little pupper I've ever met. The issue is that he doesn't know any commands and knows only to pee and poop inside. He follows me everywhere and listens when I call him to come over. He gets along with the meanest dogs at work (I'm a full time doggy day camp counselor) and loves everyone he meets as long as they approach him correctly. I love to take him on hikes and he's in such absolute bliss when we go for walks.
My boy Spike as a baby [left] and about 8 months [right], he's just over a year old now.
Got him after our last male passed away (RIP King Edward), he's honestly one of the friendliest dogs I've ever known, sadly other dogs don't seem to like him much, but it's been better since he was neutered. He and our female our best friends though.
So cute!! I love black doggies, they look so elegant. Here's mine.
I want to get a black Newfoundland someday.
Here is my pupper sitting proudly after triumphantly diving around in the snow like a goofball
I do, in fact, have the full picture of this. It was from bathtime, and he was FILTHY.
This was actually way back in summer 2013.
Thanks. I saved this picture over a year ago, and I've always wanted the full one.
Wait, I'm not sure. If I did make it, I didn't save it as anything remotely logical, and I don't remember doing it. Maybe I didn't. Who made this?
Anyway, here's a stupid bonus face.
Yes, she does have heterochromia. 2 different colored eyes.
