Re: Help! Husband doesn't want another dog...

I say go with fostering. You can warm him up to the idea of a permanent addition again without the pressure. Plus you'll be helping out a chow until they can find a permanent home.

Re: Why that name?

Okay so I guess I'll go through the whole pack. Starting with Ginger Snap. She just has the coloring for a Ginger and I love Ginger Snap cookies. Bel, the bloodhound, is short for Belvadear (I have no idea how to spell it) and he came with the name. Max, the dachshund, is short for Maxwell Q Clinger...

Re: Biting- an Acceptable Behavior?

I don't think biting is acceptable but at the same time a 10-11 week puppuy biting is not suprising. Depending on what they have or have not been taught up until that point they might not know that biting is not the way to go. Ginger was still chomping on people at that age and only stopped after we...

Re: Gracie went to work with me

That's great! I'm sure Gracie will suprise you and be ready as soon as you are. I'm overly cautious with all of our dogs just because I would never want them in the position to bite someone either so taking the time to gradually work up to her taking a tour is a good idea.

Hi and welcome to the site! I have a two and a half year old little girl. We have three dogs, Max, a daschund, Ginger, chow mix, and Bel, bloodhound. Ginger is the youngest and is only about six monthes old and is a mix so she's a little different than pure chow I guess. Anyway since my daughter was...

Re: Biting - will she grow out of it?

Gaznzimfan what your chow is doing sounds like what everyone on here calls a zoomie. If you read through some of the general section maybe you'll see that word pop up a lot. We all get excited the first time our pups do them.

Re: Chow with an attitude

Without knowing the full story its hard to offer much helpful advice in my opinion. No your chow should not be biting but remembering where Ginger was at that age in her bite inhibition training it isn't unexpected at times. Without knowing the full details of what actually happened....were you arou...

How adorable! It amazes me some of the stuff that can get into our chows heads. I don't have the will power to say no to any of the dogs. Max doesn't even try doing tricks to get what he wants he just gives me the sad eyes till I gave.

I never understood the frontdoor thing because she w...
