    Is my puppy longhair, wirehair, or short hair?

    How old is your puppy? From your photos, she looks like a short hair, but I would rather see a stacked photo when she is around 20 weeks old.

    Questionable IVDD diagnosis?

    Try that canned cheese stuff that is sort of like toothpaste when you squirt it out of the can to hide the meds. If all else fails, manually stick the meds on the back of his tongue, and hold his mouth closed while gently rubbing his throat until he swallows.

    Questionable IVDD diagnosis?

    As an after thought, ask your vet for some calming medication for when he has to be crated, try giving him canned plain pumpkin ( about a tablespoon) once a week, and play soothing, calm music when he is in his crate.

    Questionable IVDD diagnosis?

    Has your vet taken x-rays of his spine, tummy, intestines and GI tract? I would keep him on crate rest until you have a definitive answer. You really need to get him used to being crated,and make it his safe place for many reasons, crate rest, emergency evacuations for weather, as many human...

    I hope this will NOT happen!

    “The sausage dog is part of Germany’s cultural heritage,” Marion Michelet, chairwoman from the Deutscher Teckelklub Berlin-Brandenburg kennel club and owner of a dachshund called Pepper, told CNN Wednesday. “The sausage dog is not inbred just because it is small and has short legs.” Michelet...

    Introducing Annie Moon

    Apparently Amazon is out of stock, so I went to Google and typed in Dog Care Edge Ultrasonic dog trainer bark deterrent I think the first time I used it, it really got her attention, might have frightened her a tad, but didn't seem to hurt her in anyway, but it certainly stopped her in mid...

    The goodest boy

    I hope the anti bark device is working for you! We have recently had numerous sightings of coyotes in the neighborhood, especially in mornings and dusk when people are walking their dogs. Once I heard about the coyotes, I have been taking Annie out to do her business in my yard on a leash...

    Question Steps & stairs

    I purchased a ramp and Annie would get about half way up and slide down backwards. (I have an antique 36" bed) As suggested by the seller, I purchased a roll of sandpaper and papered the walk up area of the ramp. It didn't work and her little paw pads got skinned. I gave the ramp to a friend...

    The goodest boy

    I had a similar problem with AnnieMoon. She would bark in a ferocious manner whenever the door bell rang or whenever another person (other than me) entered our home and would keep it up until they were gone. She acted like a complete maniac, barking her foolish head off. I was told she was...

    Annie's Diet

    I wish there was a support group for parents of dieting dachshunds. We have just started the journey to healthy weight. One week in and those pleading eyes are getting to me, but I will BE STRONG AND RESIST!
