Victoria asks...This question is about:
I've been trying to introduce my new cat to my dog. I got the cat just before the new year and have been taking it slow. Now that Duke, my cat, is more comfortable around the apartment, I've been putting Suki on a leash and having both of them in the same room. Duke has stopped hiding under the couch and walks around now, but Suki gets so worked up and keyed in on the cat that nothing works. She doesn't really care about treats or anything she's so bull headed. What do I do?
Liam asks...This question is about:
My dog is ultimately a nice dog. He usually is always very friendly at the dog park towards other dogs and their owners. However, today he displayed very aggressive behavior towards another dog. He can be over protective of his food and toys which is a problem but this was weird because there was no toys involved or anything. It was very out of character and didn't make much sense. The other dog wasn't seriously hurt but it was scary and unpredictable. He's been aggressive a few times when he's had a bone or another dog comes near his food, sometimes he barks at strangers but once greeted inside my home he isn't aggressive with people. I'm not sure what to do.
Wayne asks...This question is about:
My dog is well trained and super affectionate. She has been raised by me since she was weened. She has gone to doggy daycare 3 times a week and had some obedience training since she was a few months old. She has been a model dog and the day care was even using her as an assessment dog. Last week a new dog came to day care. This dog is very timid and cries. When the dog cries it is triggering Gracie to bite her. Could you please explain why this may be happening?

Max will not come when called and has a habit of chasing birds. We let him outside and he wont stop and runs. He will sit, lay down, and speak but we just cannot get him to come and stay. Any advice that would help is appreciated.. Thank You!!!
