Gina asks...This question is about:
My dog is two. I got him as a gift and never trained him and spoiled him. Now I'm paying for it. He barks at strangers and every noise he hears, cries when I leave, and hates children. He won't pee outside and only pees on a puppy pad. I love him to death and I think that's my problem. I'm not sure how to fix him. Help please!!
Debbie asks...This question is about:
First off she pulls when walking on the leash but what is really upsetting is she has this aversion to "some" men. She barks, and wants to bite at their ankles. It is very embarrassing when all some of them want to do is pet her, but certain men cannot come near her without her acting up. What's up with that?
Sus asks...This question is about:
I have an amazingly devoted 3 yr old , 105 lb Bernese Mountain Dog (Baxter) who has started chewing on my back deck stairs (made of Trex) Baxter will sniff hard ay the steps and then chew the stairs to the point that he rubs the top of his nose raw and bloody on both sides. He has permanent scars on both sides of his nose from doing this. I have attempted to tell him 'no' each time he does it...he will just walk away and wait for me to leave and then goes at it again. I have to leave him outside some days and have put up barriers (chairs, kiddie pool, coolers) in front of the stairs to keep him from them. He gets through every time..he has now started going under the stairs and sniffs hard and chews on the underside of the stairs now...HELP, I'm desperate, he used to be so cute and sweet and now he is turning into a monster. I walk/run/swim him twice a day for over an hour each time, so I don't think lack of exercise is the problem. Please Help!
Barbara asks...This question is about:
Rocko barks and screeches the when ever we leave him. He is in a kennel with lots of toys a kong full of treats. He has a bark collar on that does no good. We had to put an electric fence around it because he would jump over , dig under and he even chewed threw the wire fence. At the end of the school year I put him in his kennel everyday at 7 and let him out at 3 for weeks. Everyday he barked we tried calming chews and even tried Benadryl . I have been home with him all summer but I have to return to work in a week. I was in the hospital a couple weeks ago the neighbors said he was louder than ever.
