your old dog feels dominant and doesnt want a dog in there but she loves to sniff your other dogs butt. just let them rome free as long as they dont get into a fight they will work it out they have to stop sniffing each others butts eventually anyway but if it causes a big prob and they almost or do get in a fight call your vet and they might no what to do. just be coutiouse when letting them rome free for the first week or so after you read this (if you take my advice) and if nothing happens they will be fine.
if your new dog try's to sniff your olds dog butt dont scare them so nothing happens just let them sort it out but if the old dog snaps at the new one get in there and make sure nothing eles happens and your puppy is ok.hope this helps!:D

Small dog owners.
what are your expenses like?
Well. just like any other dog, you have to consider food, and vet expenses.
I just got a small dog puppy (a malti-poo). She had been wormed and had her first shots. For her heartworm meds and second and third round of shots it's going to cost me approximately $250.
The heartworm/flea/worm medicine is a 6 month prescription and the shots are done over a two month period. So that is about $125 for the first two months. Then you have to consider the type of hair your dog has.
If it is a long-haired dog, it will have to be groomed. Also, you have to consider potty training. You will need treats to condition the dog.
And you will have to decide if you are going to use puppy pads or not. Also, you will need a kennel. Plus dogs need chew toys.
It may seem like a lot. but I can promise you. It's worth it!
As long as you are up for it.
Things i should know about Toy Poodles?
Your dog is an adult and should be fed adult dog food.
Smaller breeds frequently do better with 2 meals a day because of their small stomachs. That doesn't mean feed 2x as much food, it simply means to divide how much food he needs in a day into 2 equal meals. Pedigree dog food is crap, honestly.
You need to purchase a high quality kibble, like Innova, Wellness, Merrick, Taste of the Wild, etc. Anything that you can buy at Walmart or the grocery store is usually garbage. Look at www.
dogfoodanalysis.com and pick a dry kibble that has the highest ratings. .
It won't cost more in the long run because the dog will eat less of it (since it has far more nutrition than food that is mostly "fillers" like corn). You will spend less on vet bills. The dog's stools will be firm and consistent and you won't have trouble with his anal glands.
Also, wet food is not ideal as it can cause tooth decay. Dry kibble is best. Transition slowly, over the course of 2 weeks as to not upset the dog's stomach.
Trust me, a high quality food is the best thing you can give to your dog to insure a long, healthy life. Your dog probably has adequate shelter for being outside, but that is not the point. Dogs are pack animals.
They want to be with their pack (family). Dogs are social creatures, not solitary ones. As far as his behavior on walks, consistent training will do the trick.
Taking him out for more walks will teach him how to behave on a lead. Consistent rewards for good behavior will teach your dog how you want him to behave. If he approaches other dogs to hump them, make a high pitched noise, or clap loudly and say "NO!
". When he stops the behavior, give him a little treat. Dogs can easily learn with patience, persistence and consistency.
and a little reward. They want to please their pack leader (YOU!).
My dog doesn't want to walk outside?
Your pup is anxious.lots of new things outside that she has no awareness of and is possibly also learning how to walk on the lead as well.
so practice with your lead in the house so that is one new thing off her anxiety list, put a lead on and let it trail, get her food ready then from another room, lift up her lead and walk her to her food.if you practice this each time she gets to learn lead walking is a nice thing and she get her reward for doing it ( her meal). Any puppy I have way before they have their vaccinations or are walked on a lead outside I tuck them inside my coat and carry them so outside is not a scary new place for them and by the time they can go for walks they understand their lead, so it is not new, know the outside is full of different things and sounds and their experience of that is that is it positive.
and the only thing new is that they can smell different things.
Why does my dog act out of character when in certain circumstances?
No you won't be able to pit bull varieties are unlawful contained in the united kingdom, you won't be able to breed one, won't be able to purchase/sell one, won't be able to very own one.
the exempt canines record is basically for canines who've been taken from there proprietors, the proprietors punished fro breaking the regulation, the canines existence risked in court. you won't be able to easily prepare for a canines to circulate on it. If a canines is taken and the owner won't be able to attend to to pay for to circulate to court or the decide regulations against the owner the canines is killed.
Exempt canines muse be neutered, chipped or tattooed, insured (very problematic to get for pitbull varieties), and be on lead and muzzled in any respect situations in public, if the owner fails to conform with certainly one of them the canines is killed. you will basically would desire to make do with a criminal canines like a Staffordshire bull terrier. Be carefully with workforce crosses as some are crossing them to reproduce a canines that appears like a pit bull in spite of the incontrovertible fact that the pit bull isn't a breed contained in the united kingdom that's a style and the word type contained in the regulation potential any canines in spite of parentage is unlawful if evidently sufficient like a pitbull terrier.
Many un registered staffs and crosses have been killed for looking sufficient like a pitbull
I want to create a new dog perfect breed for wolf defense?
Try to have some of the following: (in order) A huge, strong dog to ovepower or intimidate a wolf, (e.g.
a mastiff or bullmastiff, bred to be slightley more energetic). A cunning fast dog that can out-manuver or at least match the ability of a wolf, and that has good fighting experience (e.g.
a pit bull, doberman, or dalmation). A tough dog with a aggresion to match. (e.
g. a bear hound or pit bull) A good watch dog with a bark that can meat a wolves bight. Wolves of course can't bark, and some are frightened naturally by a loud agressive bark.
Others relate barking dogs to the sound of hunting dogs that may have killed pack-members. (e.g.
most terriers, like a Jack Russel, and will add to the energy of a fight, or a beagle or blood hound-sounds like hunting dog-, or a toy dog, making sure it doesn't make your outcome dog at all small.) A dog with some wolf-fighting experience (e.g.
Irish wolf hound, Afghan hound). Give it some punch and spunk by adding some high-energy terriers, and intelligent dogs such as border collies are important! THis is slightley off the top of my head, but I can easily give you very accurate dog breeds to add to your mix.
That is what I do. Email me all nescercarry info, and I'll do what I can with it! my email is: Nature_music_eli@yahoo.
com EDIT: I totally forgot, you must have some natural live stock and people guarding instinct in there, so you should definitely add some dog guarding breeds and a bit of rotweiler for some people protection and loyalty/good tempermant. Sorry, livestock guarding shepherds are not my forte, but I'll find you the best one if you wish to email me about it. EDIT: number two, just so you know emailing me is not a buines, just a hobby!
How do I get my dog to stop peeing submissively?
Many dogs eventually outgrow it, but you can reduce it by building the dog's confidence up. Start with obedience training.
The key to most behavior problems is approaching things using the dog's natural instincts. Dogs see all the people and dogs in the household as a pack with each having their own rank in the pack and a top dog. Life is much easier if the 2 legged pack members outrank the 4 legged ones.
You can learn to play the role of top dog by reading some books or going to a good obedience class. A good obedience class or book is about you being top dog, not about rewarding standard commands with a treat. As you praise the dog for following your commands, it will build its confidence.
Play tug of war with the dog and lose. However at the end of the game, take the rope or toy and put it up, less the dog becomes confused about who is top dog. Ropes from the pets' store quickly turn to hazardous shreds.
Ones I made lasted much better. Go to a hardware or home center that sells rope by the foot. Buy 2' of 3/4" poly rope.
Melt the ends, and tie knots in it. Get them as tight as possible, put it in a vise and pound it with a hammer. Watch carefully, and be ready to discard when it comes apart.
Finally, make sure it has a den to live in. If you are not using a crate, buy one. The dog may be happier in its den than loose in the house.
It relaxes, it feels safe in its den. It rests, the body slows down reducing the need for water and relieving its self. Dogs that have been crated all along do very well.
Many of them will rest in their crates even when the door is open. I think the plastic ones give the dog more of a safe, enclosed den feeling. Metal ones can be put in a corner or covered with something the dog can't pull in and chew.
Select a crate just big enough for the full grown dog to stretch out in. A dog that has not been crated since it was little, may take some work. Start out just putting its toys and treats in the crate.
Praise it for going in. Feed it in the crate. This is also an easy way to maintain order at feeding time for more than one dog.
