Un-crate our dog?

I have a bichon frise/shih tzu mix dog named Beatrix who is a little over 1 year old. She is crate trained and has no problem with going into the crate when my husband leaves for work. She spends no more than 5 hours in the crate a day while we are at work. Next week my husband's work hours will be changing and this will mean that Beatrix will be at home for 8 hours alone while we are at work. Unfortunately we cannot afford to hire a dog walker. We are thinking about leaving her out of the crate since it seems like a significantly longer time to keep her cooped up. Is this the best thing to do? If so, how should we go about it? [more inside]

Yes, I cook for my dog. How can I do it better?

I'd like nutritional advice for homemade dog food and maybe treats, using easy-to-find ingredients. I haven't been able to find high quality commercial dog food where I live, so I make most of her food myself, but I would like to make her homemade food as healthy as I possibly can with the resources I have, which are somewhat limited. Current routine, and many(!) more details inside. [more inside]

Our big old dog is becoming incontinent -- How can we all be happy together?

My 11 year old male shepherd-mix is in congestive heart failure, but doing very well on medicine. He has a good outlook for many months of high quality living. The diuretic medicine causes him to pee in the house occasionally -- because I can't get him out the door fast enough. We live in a condo and he has to go out on leash. We can't leave the house for more than a couple hours or he will need to pee. I welcome any tips on managing incontinence for large male dogs. [more inside]

Is there a canine version of Feliway?

There's a miserable yapping barking dog right behind the front door of the apartment across the hall, and it's driving me mental. Rather than deal with the skeevy-looking tenants at 12:30 AM I just want the dog to go bark elsewhere in their apartment. If it were a cat I'd spray a little Feliway under their door... is there something I can spray under there that will make that dog avoid the area?

Give a Dog a Bone...hat.

Help me get my Jack Russell to quit peeing on everything.

How do I get my 4 year old Jack Rusell to stop peeing on things? He IS potty trained, and neutered, but still seems to be "marking" furniture and corners all over my apartment, and I NEVER catch him in the act. I've heard this is an issue that is more common in Jack Russells. Is there anything I can do to deter this so he won't pee on my new couch? [more inside]

Help Choosing a Dog Breed

Help me choose a new dog. I've been looking at different breeds and have come up empty. Here's my list of things to consider. Please ask if there is more that you think is relevant. We have kids from infant to 7. We have 1 middle-aged cat. We have a suitable yard that I don't want destroyed. I love the size and look of border collies. I love the look of irish setters. I love the look of bassets and beagles. Central Iowa, but dog would sleep indoors. Exercise is a daily walk. Simply trained; no complex tricks, just sit, stay, heel, fetch.
