~1 year old Labradoodle name of Twist. Good boy. Crate trained up to this point, house trained so long as we lock him in his crate overnight. Which is the issue.
I'd like to start weaning him off of the crate. He seems ready, he has no trouble holding it all night in the crate and it's not like he's rushing for the door in the morning; he'll happily romp around the house while we're getting breakfast etc together. But when I've tried leaving the crate door open overnight he, well, chooses not to wait until morning. Looking for strategies to let him know that that's not okay. [more inside]

Should I pick up other dogs' poop while walking my dogs?
I pick up my own dogs' poop but I don't pick up other poops when I am on walks. Am I being clueless when I step over another dog's poop without picking it up? [more inside]

New puppy house training issues... Well the GF and I fell in love with a small dog at the local humane society, and being new to this and living in a small apartment and both having jobs that take us away from the home during the days, we were happy to be told that she was 2 years old and pretty well house trained. It wasn't until we were going over all the details that we find out she's only ~7 months old. Obligatory pic, awwww..... [more inside]

Should I apologize to my step-mother for a sarcastic response to a wacked out email she sent me. I don't feel like I should...
Can anyone offer ideas on how to write an apology letter that's not really an apology?

This is a serious request for help. My dog is approaching a year old now and is fascinated with eating shit. Cat shit is her favorite but she's now pulling dirty diapers out of the trash and licking them clean.
Helath issues aside, this is so incredibly disgusting to me that I simply cannot take it anymore.
My question is: what can I do to stop her from eating crap and what can I do to stop her from wanting to eat crap? [more inside]
