I think this is a lot of bullshit. A dog is not going to like to be crated for long periods of time. If you can't spend a lot of time interacting with and physically exercising your dog, and you don't have a safely fenced-in yard for him or her to run in, DON'T GET A DOG! Putting a dog in a kennel for a short period of time is one thing, but as a way of life, it sucks. How would you like it? That's the question you should be asking yourself. And if your dog is going to spend a lot of time in a kennel, why do you really "want" a dog in the first place?

Housebreaking, chewing, feeding Most medical questions are best handled through a local vet. I try to base my answers on carefully proven methods confirmed by my own experience. Much of what I know about dogs, I have learned raising a puppy every year since 1991 for a large dog guide school. I am familiar with several similar programs. Nobody is in a better position to know dogs, need ones with long, active life, and share what they know, than the service dog schools. In addition I have done extensive reading. My answers have much more to back them than the limited experience any one dog owner can have. PLEASE DON'T SEND ME MEDICAL OR BREEDING QUESTIONS. An internet forum is not the appropriate place for them. Even if I could tell what was wrong from a handful of symptoms, you would still need to get the medications from your local vet. Breeding should be left to those not needing to ask simple, basic questions. Books have been written about it. Rather than ask me a question, start reading. Those unwilling to do the work it takes to produce quality puppies should spay/neuter their pets at 6 months. I will not answer questions that sound like a poorly prepared breeder.
