My boyfriend recently moved into my house and my puppy is extremely jealous. This is a long-term boyfriend and he actually bought the puppy for me, so the boyfriend isn't a stranger to Ruger. Ruger has resorted to destruction of my home- he demolished a door the other day while we were both at work. Even if the boyfriend hugs me, Ruger becomes very vocal and tries to get between us. How do I get Ruger to stop this behavior? Your help would be greatly appreciated!!

Kimi asks...This question is about:
Everyday, , I walk my dog, Jackie twice a day. At times, there are about 8 dogs in the neighborhood that we walk together. Jackie is fine with these dogs. However, whenever, she sees another outside dog, for instance, walking across the street, she will get excited and starts to bark at the dog. Why does this happen all the time when she sees a strange dog? How can I stop here from doing this? FYI, she is ok with her current dog friends because once she sniffs them, she is ok.rnThanking you in advance, will wait for your reply.
Sophia asks...This question is about:
my 10 month 100 lb puppy has recently been showing more and more aggresion. He is attacking our family, leaving us with bite marks and bruising.Once he attacks you cannot get him away. He bites uncontrollable, sinking his teeth into our wrists and if we push him off, he comes right back, jumping on us and biting. It is frightening because he once did it while I was taking him on a walk. I had to walk him back to the house with his teeth sinking in to my arm. (equally embarressing as painful) The attacks are not provoked, but we did wrestle him as a small puppy, not knowing that it could cause future aggression. Besides this, he also chews on things he isn't supposed to chew on. He ruined our couch and other furniture and has cost us thousands of dollars in damage. He used to run away from the yard, and our neighbors have threatend to call the police on us for it. On top of all this, he digs massive holes in our yard and jumps up on guests. We really need to correct these things because we are considering giving him away, and nobody would want a dog with this behavior. Please answer quickly this is urgent.
I have a King Charles Cavalier/Bichon mix dog, she's the sweetest thing ever, she's about 4 yrs old. She's not the brightest dog in the world though, ha! rnrnI have a question...I take her and my other dog out for a walk every morning and every evening. She's gets so excited when I say, "Wanna go on a walk", she does her happy dance, gets all excited, she gets excited to have her leash put on and is all ready to go. But as soon as we get out the door she lays down, she wont move. I pick her up and carry her away from the house, then put her back down, she'll walk a little more but then plops down again and wont move. I don't want to yank her, so I have to pick her up and put her down about 5 times during our walk. What is that???? Any help you can offer would be appreciated.
