Re: Help with potty training.

I see I forgot to say that we got Lily when she was 9 weeks old and didn't have that many accidents and I blame us for them, not her.

Re: Help with potty training.

I have a 10 month old chow Lily, and what I figured out with her when she was little is that the indication to go out is so subtle, you really have to pay attention to them....she had a few accidents in the house mostly by the back door where she knew to go out and pee...she has since learned to cli...

Re: How did you train your chow?

I'm no expert, but after having 3 chows....they pretty much trained me! Classes are always a good start, but chows are unique in their "cat" like personality and if they resist, they won't. I have had three well behaved friendly chows and the training is never ending in some ways, but easy...

Re: question about chow chow type

I'm no expert, but the puppies usually look a lot like their parents...so I'm doubtful you'll get a brown nosed puppy, but I suppose anything is possible, however....you can't go wrong with cutie like that! Good luck!

Re: Matilda with newly rescued 8 year old cat

I'm no expert, but my past experience with an adult cat and dog has been that if the dog doesn't have aggression issues with the cat, things will probably be ok...although there is no guarantee...if the cat doesn't like the dog, they will just hide from them...best to never leave them alone to inter...

Can't say as I blame her....although I don't live there and I don't know where you have to go in Minnesota....but I know that June is not a guarantee that it will be warm there! We vacation in Northern Wisconsin in June and have had really cold weather .... but come on.....it's for a cutie pie!

Before I got married, my husband had a dog, a black lab and I had a full grown cat....I asked my vet what the best way to handle both....his reply was that if the cat doesn't like the dog, they will just avoid and hide from the dog, but if the dog doesn't like cats....that could be an issue because ...

Re: Help! New Chow leash biting, other stuff.

Thanks Rory's Dad.....there is a lot of sniffing and peeing and chasing a blowing leaf....and thankfully she gets to meet people and other dogs as well...so I am going to shorten her walks until she and I have some training! It's been too cold for walks the last couple of days....at least for me.......

I agree with everyone...first a vet check to make sure no irritation or infection...then try to wipe with a dry cloth for drinks and maybe a "puppy wipe" type towel for food and other particles that collect. Do you leave a collar on all the time? I only have a collar on when we go out, not...
