Looking to purchase or adopt a puppy but I’m not quite sure where to look.
Before I put her in her crate for the night, or if I will be out for a few hours, I always take her outside to do her business, & for the most part she is OK in the crate & will not have any accidents.
However, sometimes she does, & I know this is normal since she is a puppy & all – but my question is this – Sometimes I see her eating her Accidents! How do I make her stop!
I do leave water in her crate, a small amount but just enough to either last through the night or while I am away. I do not leave any food in her cage, I do feed her every morning & put out a little more than 1/2 cup of food with her water. I do spoil her with treats throughout the day, like when I take her out to reward her for going outside & such, but every once in a while I see when she has had an accident in her cage, & I have come home to catch her eating it!
Is this bad for her? How do I stop this
I know the can have skin problems
So i’m thinking about getting a west highland white terrier. While looking through pictures it seems like there’s a slight difference between some of the pictures I’ve found. One looks a bit larger and more like a run around play dog. The other looks like an inside dog who stays inside. Here are the links to the pictures. http://static.desktopnexus.com/wallpaper…

I was just wondering if there’s a slight difference in the breeding, grooming, or just looks. Thanks in advance and if I confused anyone..please let me know 🙂
Seriously havnt a clue what to do with the dog!! Hes 5weeks old! What should i feed him?? How much should i feed him?? How often do i walk him?! Cleaning him??
Either through word of mouth – ask owners of the breed where they got their dog from and if they were happy everything and feel free to ask questions that you feel are important – are the puppies homereared etc? The most reliable place to get a list of reliable breeders would probably be through the Kennel Club
Yes they are double coated so they shed a bit. Usually not hypo due to the fact the majority are prone to serious skin issues & allergies. If you buy one do plenty of research on the breed & investigate the breeder & be certain allergies & bad skin are not in the lineage of either dog.
I have a four month old West Highland White Terrier. I feed him Wellness Mix 5 Puppy Formula. The vet said that he should be eating about 1 cup per day at this point in his growth process.
I have been trying to feed him that amount. But he is flat out refusing to eat it. He only eats about 1/2 cup per because he is “hungry” but after that he walks away from it. He has nothing medically wrong with him, he passed his physical, blood tests, and has had all shots.
If I feed him 1 can of wet food it is gone. He loves it.
I tried mixing it and (wet/dry) and he just eats around the dry.
My only clarifications are….
1) He is teething and its hard for him to chew, although he will chew his rawhide “denta bone”.
2) There is something wrong with the food. Bad taste. Manufacturing defect. Something like that.
3) He is “bored” with the food. I know that is humanizing him too much, but I just want him to eat.
I know that it is not good to feed ONLY wet food because its not good for their teeth. BUT if I decided that is the best route for him to be able to eat food, what can I do to protect his oral health.
I was thinking of trying Halo, Nutro puppy formulas too.
Help and feedback needed.
He also plays/runs for 3-4 hours per day. So he should be really hungry.
He also favors water. He would drink 300 gallons per day If he could. Again, no concern to either vet he’s been to.
My pup is about six months old, and his ears haven’t propped up yet…does that mean they never will? I’ve read that they usually begin to prop up at about the fourth month, so that worries me because hes actually seven months old now that I think of it. I would greatly appreciate it if someone who has a slight inclination to answer please do so, or if you know a lot about dogs… Thank You.
please tell me some things about the west highland white terrier. don’t copy-paste information on the breed. Just tell me some things you know, if they are friendly, how they live in a family. something you’ve heard about the breed from a friend maybe… thanks you very much!!
