But she continues to pee on one particular carpet... [more inside]

Doesn't the underfur removed by a Furminator serve as insulation, waterproofing, and buoyancy for a dog, especially a water dog like a Lab? She never wants to get out of the water and I'm afraid she'll get too cold.

Soft-sided dog crate for large elderly dog? Will my dog be safe?

Who has used a soft-sided dog crate for a large dog? Will it provide secure confinement for short periods? We are moving from NJ to the west coast. Our elderly dog is too frail to travel by air, so we will drive a 6-day road trip. For the road trip, I need a portable crate that will stow in our car trunk. We need the crate to set up in motel rooms. I want dog to have his "den". We do not plan to leave him alone, but there could be situations where he has to be kept confined for his safety.

Our 9 year old Lab finds the hardwood stairs too slippery.

Our 9 year old Lab finds the hardwood stairs too slippery. She's fallen a couple of times recently and it's hard to "spot her" her from below because coaxing her makes her even more nervous. Her eyesight has been failing for a long time (never was very good, we think) and the pads of her feet have very little traction. [more inside]

Mini poodle wants to break my heart and soil my sheets.

What do we do with our dog, Sparky? We just got an 18 month old miniature poodle, about 15 lbs, not (yet) fixed. She is extremely timid: she came from a backyard breeder who didn't care for her well. She grew up with other dogs and an unknown amount of interaction with people (but we think not enough since she wasn't being groomed). We don't know much else about her past. Tonight we're faced with a difficult choice between a night of wailing or her fouling our bed... [more inside]
