Shelli asks...This question is about:
I have had Sakari since she was a pup (now almost 7) and I got Nukka as a puppy also after I lost other dog (now almost 2). I thought it would be good for Sakari to have another companion; my dogs were best friends for the first 14 months. I took them camping up north last year and the first 3 days went great. On the last day they got into a vicious fight. I had to bring them home separately. The fights have continued and are now drawing blood. I'm afraid Nukka the bigger of the two is going to kill Sakari. I have had female Huskies dogs for over 20 years and never had a problem. I have had them both neutered since the fights started but it hasn’t helped the fighting incidents? Can you help? Can they be brought back together as companions/friends?

I have 1 year old American pit bull terrier who is a house dog and listens perfectly inside the house but when she is let outside she doesn't listen she does not come here when we call her she just thinks everybody is trying to play with her. Im really not sure how to break her from that also i want to keep her from chasing squirrels and birds. She also does a lot of digging.
Shirley asks...This question is about:
Our 2 year old boston terrier male is very territorial. He gets aggressive and he goes into a frenzy if the doorbell rings or if someone comes to the door. We lived in the country when we got him and we moved in to town about six months ago. He barks a lot whenever he sees or years something. We have to put him in a kennel when we know someone is coming. We don't want to get rid of him but we can't let anyone in the house when junior is. Is this going to be very hard to correct? My husband and I are senior citizens. Is there hope for him?
Janine asks...This question is about:
We have a 3 month old border collie that we have had for almost two weeks. She gets at least two long walks a day, good quality food and plenty of training and love. We are working on kennel training her, and for the most part she is good. But she still whines when she realizes shes locked in there, and she gets so hyper and paws at the door when we go to let her out. We make her sit and stay, and calm down until we let her out, which she is getting better at. We put her in th kennel in an area where she can see us with a toy as well. We have tried everything we have been told, but she still frets when she is in the kennel. When we go to work we are afraid she doesn't settle and cries all day. We arent sure if this is just somethign that will come with time, or if there is anythign else we can do. We really want to try and avoid separation anxiety if we can!
