I created this navigation box because that is what I do. I am not a dog expert. Please add/change/delete as appropriate.---- Old Hoss (talk) 22:02, 16 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Gray Wolf[edit]

Should we add the gray wolf in this template?--4444hhhh (talk) 22:28, 21 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No. The template is for the domestic dog, not the wild kin. Hafwyn (talk) 22:00, 8 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

U can create a page for the wild kind. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:47, 7 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Human-dog Interaction[edit]

Put all of the dog sports together and directed to the List of dog sports--Hafwyn (talk) 14:28, 5 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template - Category:Dog equipment entry[edit]

Keep: I believe the Category:Dog equipment ( diff ) section added to the template is important, contains relevant information and should remain in the template. Thank you. ChanziP (talk) 10:33, 26 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello ChanziP, I see that in March it will have been four years since you last edited this navbox. As I have said in my previous edit summaries, this template is already big enough with far too great a weight placed on western aspects of dogs and dog ownership hence I oppose the introduction of this content to this navbox. Further, please stop trying to edit war you undiscussed additions into the navbox, over the years you have received more blocks for edit warring than I can be bothered counting up, you should understand our policies by now.

Hello Cavalryman, please do not revert the template until a consensus is decided upon. Thank you! ChanziP (talk) 10:30, 27 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding dog-specific diseases[edit]

I am considering adding a link to a dog-specific disease (Rage syndrome) to the Health section but am divided on whether it improves the template. For example, it might fit better in a separate template about illnesses in dogs, or a template about dog aggression and training, neither of which exist currently. But I don't want to make a new template if that would be unhelpful - I've heard some complaints about unnecessary templates. SkrikerandTrash (talk) 07:06, 19 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Possibly rather than a new template about illnesses in dogs, a new section in the Domestic_dog template could be added for illnesses in dogs? SkrikerandTrash (talk) 21:32, 19 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
