Fatima asks...This question is about:
My dog is overly jealous and protective. When new people show up at our door, he barks like crazy and the fur on the back of his neck stands up. Today a friend came to visit and he barked and almost tried to bite her. I held him back and grabbed him in my arms to hold him back. He turned and bit my chin, leaving blood and bite marks. How can I get this behavior to stop?
Linda asks...This question is about:
we lost our 7 year old Maltipoo in July. Our 14 yr old Maltese started pooping and peeing in the house, She was checked out by the vet with no medical issues. She doesnt see well due to cataract and can hardly hear. We just clean it up and take her outside and then give her a treat. Im not sure how to handle this. I am suppose to get a 7yo Shitzu but not sure. any suggestions?
Jeff asks...This question is about:
I recently adopted an intact female Great Dane. We're told she is a little over 4 years old. When we adopted her, we were told she was good with other dogs and tolerated cats. We have quickly found out she does neither. We have a cat, and she has aggressively gone after him twice. She has gotten ahold if him once. We now keep him in the basement and her upstairs to prevent issues. I do not wish to have that situation continue. She gets extremely irritated and tried to lunge and attack other dogs. I tried to take her to pets mart and she was shaking and growing at every dog in the place. rnMy assumption is that something on her past has created this behavior. Before we consider finding her a new home, I want to find out if there is training or anything that can be done to correct this behavior. I don't expect her to be the cats friend, just to ignore him. And I don't want her to knock my fiancé down if she were to try and take her for a walk and catch sight of another dog.
Justin asks...This question is about:
I recently brought a 6 month old male pit into our home. My 8 year old has been the only dog in the household since I adopted her 5 years ago. The two dogs have been getting along wonderfully, with the only tiffs being small corrective behaviors by the adult female. In the last two days, she has started with a very cautious behavior around the new young male, and has lunged aggressively at him. Why did this behavior not exist at the start, and is this a behavior that can be corrected, or will the two not be able to co-exist?
April asks...This question is about:
I have been helping my daughter with her Beagle and his separation anxiety. I have his anxiety level to 0 at this point but now he knows that if he whines or barks at their house that I will go get him and bring him to my house. How can I break the cycle of him barking to get me to bring him to my house? We live in a condo property and the neighbors complain when Hunter barks too much.
