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.

Dog that looks like Samoyed but isn't?

Need a dog recommendation. It would look something like a Samoyed (my favorite doggie look) but could do with a lot less activity, and would be happy to hang out indoors with me most of the day. Must be good for apartments. Which canines fit the bill?

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]

Optimal dog walk: vary route or not?

I walk my eight-year-old boxer every day. I vary the route among a set of 4 or 5 possibilities--different directions, incline, etc. I do this a) because I like variety and b) I have been assuming the dog likes variety, too. Is that true? Or does a dog prefer, for some reason, to stick to one familiar route?

When Dogs Attack

My dog and I were viciously attacked Wednesday at a place of business. The dog is owned by an intern of the business. She has a new puppy and was unrestrained and had no collar (which made it difficult to control her). I was going to let it slide, but they have been less than friendly and take no responsibility for the attack. [more inside]

How to help a cranky cat get used to the dog?

(Pet harmony filter) A little over 3 months ago, we adopted Phoebe, an 18-month old poodle/bichon cross. She's a fantastic dog, very well behaved, perfectly lovable and playful and awesome in every way, and we adore her. We also have 4 cats, 3 of which have settled down and seem to have gotten used her. But not Phil. Phil hates Phoebe with white-hot kitty hate. And it's breaking my heart. [more inside]
