    Need Help Four months old - suddenly very skittish about EVERYTHING

    At this point I am not sure how often I will have to re charge the collar, but at this point, I am thrilled with the silence.

    Need Help Four months old - suddenly very skittish about EVERYTHING

    So far, the vibration collar is working. I can put it on Annie if I know someone is coming over. At first volley of barking, it makes a high pitch sound that surprises her. The look on her face is priceless as she tries to look down at her chest to see what is making that sound. If she...

    Introducing Annie Moon

    I may (or may not) have found an answer to Annie's non stop barking when someone enters my house. I bought a vibrating collar that also emits a whistling sound as soon as she hears the sound of a visitor knocking on the door, or ringing the door bell. I have only had it for three days, but so...

    Matted hair

    My friend's Golden Retriever gets mats behind his ears and near his "arm pits." She uses a mixture of aloe gel and coconut oil in a spray bottle, works it in with her fingers and allows it sit for awhile after spraying on mats. She uses a metal detangler comb for dogs to work out the...

    Need Help Four months old - suddenly very skittish about EVERYTHING

    I do believe I have tried everything to stop Annie's barking, including a spray bottle with water, (she loves being sprayed and it does not stop the barking,) pennies in the can makes her squat and pee on the floor, (did not stop the barking and I then had two problems, barking and clean up the...

    Skin concern

    It could be bug bites. I use Frontline Plus to deter mosquitoes and ticks. My last little girl had wheat allergies and after I switched to a grain free diet, her bald patches and itching eventually went away. I used Taste of the Wild brand dog kibble.

    Introducing Annie Moon

    I am still unpacking boxes and trying to find places to put things. Annie thinks it is so much fun to grab and shake the papers that were used for cushioning breakable items in the boxes.

    Introducing Annie Moon

    Annie and I have moved to another town in my state. I think she likes it here because it is all on one level, except for a basement. Her transition from out last home to our new home seems to have gone well, but I am now crating her in the basement when I have to leave the home because we are...

    Carrier for Dachshund

    When my son returned from military service in the middle east, we drove 600 miles to his base to greet him. His plane was delayed for three days and we wanted to explore the nearby city while waiting. We had our dachshund with us and the sidewalks were too hot for her feet, it was summer, and...

    Advice on stairs for bed

    So sorry I can't help you. I purchased a rather expensive ramp specifically made for dachshunds to get onto and off of my higher than average bed. With food incentives placed at 6" intervals I convinced her to try it, but the covering material (like a textured rug) wouldn't give her feet...

    CDA at 4 months old?

    I don't think there is a definitive treatment for CDA. You said that your boy is a blue and tan. Blue is considered a "dilute color" and dilute colors in dachshunds are genetically susceptible to CDA. I am so sorry this happened to your boy.

    Need Help Scratching ears

    My last little girl developed severe skin allergies when she was between 1 and 2 years old. We had blood panels done, but, when her vet couldn't help control her condition for about a year, we took her to a teaching university where students learn to be veterinarians. No one could figure out...
