If you want a non-gross dog, don't get a beagle or another scent hound. The scenting thing drives me batty.

Scenting is basically where they will rub their necks in things to scent themselves. I will say that poo is not the worst thing they can scent themselves with (luckily my dogs have never tried to rub in poo but I'll spare you what they have).

I had no idea it had a name! Our friend's Yorkie did it with a dead bird, and I was like "really, they bred nearly all the dog out of you, but you retained this?" It's pretty gross. I'll say that dog poo isn't the worst poo they can scent themselves with.

Yeah, eww is right. Mine eats dog poop sometimes too. Especially if he finds it in the snow - he likes those poopsicles. It's not a strong behavior, typically only if he just got his teeth brushed. Just like he likes to spray his anal glands just after a bath.

I tend to feed new animals on sensitive food when they first come home, then wean them onto what I want them on long term, after a few weeks. It's worth asking the rescue what the dog is currently on, you might find it has been fed the same food for a while, thanks to a big donation from a local pet store etc.

I met a dog in the park who's owner hadn't been keeping an eye on him, pretty sure it was human scat he had rolled in (area where people drink and take drugs at night). It was horrendous! His owner's reaction was hilarious when I drew his attention to it, that'll teach him to talk on his mobile phone and not watch his dog.

Bigby loves to roll in goose poop, dead animals, worms, whatever. Once he rolled in grass and came out smelling like fresh grass, most other times he needs an emergency bath. The grossest thing I ever saw was when he ate some food item off the ground that was covered in ants. Ughhh.

Yeah, Biscuit was doing some pretty heavy necking with a couple of dead fish at the lake when we went swimming.

Poppy loves cat poo, even better if it's diarrhoea. Minnie cuts out the middle man and just eats her own.

This may be a really stupid question, but can someone explain the different types of collars to me? Like do I need a separate one for the ID tag and another for walking the dog? I see lots of collars that only have one D-ring, presumably for walking, but no spot to put the ID tag on.

The d ring can hold tags and you can clip the leash on, I wouldn't worry about that. We actually do have 2 separate collars because I'm paranoid and I have 2 potential runners. So basically If the collar fails, then at least they still have an ID on them.

Another thing you could do is order a collar that is embroidered or engraved with contact info

I don't know about Canadian laws but in the US, our rabies laws also concern me but you are always given an ID and certificate by your vet. If this is true for you as well, make sure you have the certificate in a safe place although as long as your vet still exists, they would also have the records as well. So on my dogs, I put their ID tag and their rabies tag on them and that is it.

A harness may also be good for walking, we use this for hiking with our dogs but for every day walking, we use a neck collar.

Cammie wears a collar with just her ID tag on it and has a harness for walks. We have the same brand harness that linanil linked to, although maybe an older model - but the wide soft front is the same and I like them better than the ones that are just straps even though she doesn't usually pull on the leash.

I don't put her rabies tag on her collar and don't know too many people whose dogs wear them all the time. My brother's dog wears her ID tag and local dog license tag and that's it.

We had the same puppia harness. It's very nice and soft. Once we pinched bigby a little bit with the clasp though, and now he's terrified of that harness, so we got a velcro one where there's no chance it could hurt him. It holds really well, too, which we've discovered when he reacts to another dog or wants to chase a bunny.
We have 4 tags on his collar (id, city license, rabies and microchip) all attached to one little ring. They jangle around a bit, but he doesn't mind.
