    Call name to go with "Northern Dark Knight"

    His name is Jagger Thanks for all the great suggestions, but we didn't get the dark brindle that we were hoping for, but got a fawn with black mask. He was so tiny and so spunky, we named him Jagger, registered name Moves Like Jagger. I would like to attach a picture here, but I don't see an...

    Changing Food

    Both my boxers are fed Purina One Lamb & Rice. Lately (past few months) they throw up their food, sometimes as often as a couple of times a week. My male boxer has never had problems until the past few months. My female has always thrown up bile from time to time. I think it is the male that is...

    Nipping?

    Thanks for the tips and training advice. I will definitely be trying it. It is only when he is extremely exicted that he does this. Hopefully, it will be corrected very soon. Thank you.

    Unfenced yard

    My dogs get put on a leash when they are out on the front lawn and they don't mind it at all. They run free in the back yard and when they are at the lake, but they know when they want to sit out front, they have to be on a leash, yet they still love it. It's amazing how they will run on the...

    Nipping?

    I was walking with my 2 year old male boxer today, and a lady walking by asked if he was friendly. I said yes and she wanted to pet him. Well, before I could get him to sit, he jumped on her, which is not unusual. But then he nipped her. I know he didn't mean to bite her, but why would he do...

    How to get puppy to take Pepto

    How much Imodium Shoud I give him a full caplet (2mg)? He is about 30 lbs. The imodium may be easier to give him as it is much smaller. My poor dog is starving - this fasting is hard:(

    How to get puppy to take Pepto

    My 5 month old puppy has diarrhea. This started out as a small problem (soft stools) and has now turned into diarrhea. I started feeding him hamburger and rice 4 days ago, and yesterday, started mixing his regular food into it - 1/2 cup with first feeding, and 3/4 cup with 2nd feeding. Also, in...

    Need to change food

    Thanks Thanks, I was able to get a supply of the food he was on, lugged back a 20 lb bag of dog food on Air Canada, and still came in underweight for luggage! Imagine that! My puppy is beautiful!

    Need to change food

    Hi, I'm getting my second boxer next week. The problem is he has to be flown here, and he is on a food that I cannot get here. He is on a Costco product, Kirkland Chicken & Rice. I live in a small town with limited choices, so if I switch him (without a gradual change) to another puppy chicken...

    Slober when meeting other dogs

    My female boxer is 3 years old, and slober has never been a problem; however, this summer, I've noticed that whenever she is around another dog, she slobers/salivates excessively. I am constantly wiping her mouth to keep the slime off everyone. This is not a result of running with the other dog...

    Winter and the Boxer

    Try CHILLYDOGS I live in northern MB where it gets VERY COLD & I have a 10 month old female and we love to walk. I ordered a coat from www.chillydogs.ca and I am very pleased with it. It's expensive, but very well made and fits her very well. I'm not sure if she will keep boots on though, so...

    I upset the Vet

    \ Unfortunately, our nearest vet is 4 hours away. It wasn't my intent to question what he was giving for heartworm, just to let them know about the safety concerns regarding ProHeart 6.
