Depends on what you can afford as well. I was feeding my dog Blue Buffalo Wilderness last year until it got way too expensive so I went with just the regular Blue Buffalo brand. The only difference was my husky was shedding for 5 months straight. :(

dogfoodadvisor.com has a good list. I've found that a lot of 5 star foods, like Blue Buffalo, can sometimes be too rich for some dogs. It's a trial-and-error process.

Yeah, had my dog on Orijen for a long time and his poop would be jello like for the most part. I switched to Innova Chicken and Turkey last year, and its been rock solid ever since.

There's a Basenji mix at the dog park I go to who is a totally awesome dog. She's this really cool color of Orange.

Super, high energy dog though.

The dog in that pic may be a mix, but it reminds me of a Shiba Inu.

I didn't know we had this thread.

My wife and I have a miniature dachshund pup named Gordon, who we are working on training, and a pembroke welsh corgi named Sydney, who is a beacon of canine perfection.

He's been tougher to train than the Corgi was, very stubborn. He also had severe separation anxiety when we first got him, but I think he's gotten much better.

This is my dog Sasha. She's half shiba inu and half blue heeler. Oh, and it was Halloween, she was a lady bug that year.

My dog is also on Blue Buffalo and he seems to be doing pretty well on it. I wonder how it ranks amongst veterinarians and stuff? When he was on Hill's Science Diet he kept getting sick and sometimes wouldn't eat it (and it also always smelled bad too).

Oh yes! I have always read that male dachshunds are the worst to train, and you know what, it's mostly true! Socialize Socialize socialize! And everyone in the house most establish dominance over him. Good luck!

Vizslas 4 ever. Good to see some Weim discussion going on, the grey cousin of the Vizsla of course.

So glad to see a Vizsla owner on the last page. Yes they are incredibly smart. Too damn smart for their own good sometimes. Mine died half a year ago, but still an incredible dog. I have so many great memories with her. Stubborn as an ass too.

I believe he got some Kintamani (spitz type) mix in him. His mom is dark brown with some black camo stripe and short tail.

Yeah good luck man. No matter what reason, it's never fun to have to take your dog to the vet.

Shikko just got over a two week period of Kennel cough. The cough itself wasn't that bad, but it sucked a damn lot that we couldn't play or sniff with other dogs for 14 days. Could defintely see that Shikko was used to play with large groups of dogs everyday.

Anyway some pics I couldn't post a few weeks ago because I was banned. Just some photos from our daily afternoon walk.

It looks more like a Malamute. The person who uploaded the video doesn't know what they are talking about, Alaskan Malamutes and Siberian Huskies are 2 different breeds.

You'd be suprised what some owners of their own dogs don't know. Someone once told me the only difference between a Pembroke and Cardigan Corgi is the Pem's tail is docked. They weren't buying my explanation about difference of origin and ancestory.

My dachshund will be fed a meal, and then as soon as another person comes in the house, will start whining pitifully at the pantry door until they ask if she's been fed, which she almost invariably has. And she'll come upstairs to get you, and run downstairs when you ask her if she wants to go potty... and then refuse to go outside and sit by the pantry door because she really just wanted a treat.

So manipulative.

Tell me about it. I'd be willing to bet whoever sold the uploader the dog told them that.

My cousin got a bulldog a long time ago and I said "Oh cool you got an Olde English Bulldogge" and he argued with me the entire night that it was an English Bulldog because the lady told him that.

I said "dude look it up they look nothing alike" and he continued to argue with me without looking it up and then a few months later he told me "yea I don't know what that lady was talking about, he's definitely an olde english"

I bought a dog encyclopedia when I was 12 and practically memorized it :lol
I'm not saying everyone needs to be a walking AKC encyclopedia that owns a dog but if you're going to do enough research (presumably) to buy a pure bred dog you'd think you'd know enough about the breed to not take the breeder's word at face value.

Then again Bulldogs and Husky-esque breeds are fairly popular dogs so you get a bunch of shady breeders who view their dogs as money printing factories

Mine runs around with dogs most of the day (aka goes to doggy daycare). It's expensive, but keeps her fit and stimulated. During the weekends, we take her for walks.

Just chiming in quickly to say that I've had my Dachshund/Beagle mix (assumed) on a no corn, no wheat, no soy diet for the six months that I've had him and his coat is amazing. I mix in a bit of olive oil with his food every night too. 90% of people that meet him for the first time make an unsolicited comment about his coat.

If anyone is debating on whether or not to switch pet foods to something similar, definitely do it.

The time sure went fast. I can hardly recall how it was during the first 2 months, my memory around that time seems rather blurry. I guess it was because how hectic everything was :) Next to meeting my girlfriend, getting a dog has been the best thing to happen to me in my adult life. Sure it's a lot of work, but holy crap does it payoff!! I just hope the next years wont go as fast as this first one.

Well heres my Akita Oscar again, he is 6 months old now and weighs in at 38.1kg. I think he will be 50kg+ as an adult which is a fairly decent size (His mum was around 40, dad around 45). I cant remember if I have posted these ones before but oh well, he is awesome. He is about 5-5 1/2 months old here. I havent put more recent ones on my pc yet.

I didn't get my dog until she was already a year old; I'm sure that it's a different experience raising them from such an early age. Anyway, a few more pictures:

Me and her doing some basic RO training.

We have a 100% Lamleh line Tibetan, which seems to be a big deal according to some people.
Ours is pretty furry, which makes it a nicer looking dog in my opinion, but it's a bitch to maintain. When it comes to character, she can be pretty distant and headstrong, definitely not a lapdog.

The amount of treats she gets from random people on walks in our neighborhood is baffling. People love this furry critter.

I don't get people who carry around treats for their dog. I give my dog treats but not while walking, hiking or at the dog park. Is it a way to have your dog always at your side?
