Abby asks...This question is about:
Hello! My boyfriend and I adopted Luna three years ago and have been having issues with her ever since. She is a sweet dog and plays well with others, but obviously has extreme separation anxiety. She's clawed her way through walls, doors, and even jumped out of a two story window. rnrnShe also has an extreme intolerance towards thunderstorms. She'll pant heavily and pace. She doesn't seem to understand "NO" when we tell her and ignores us when we push her away. She doesn't/won't understand. rnrnWe've tried everything to help her, from crate training (she refuses to go anywhere near it, even if we give her treats), to ThunderShirts, to sedatives during storms. Nothing works. She goes absolutely insane and it keeps us awake at night. She's destroyed our home/apartment countless times. Is there any way to help her? We don't want to give her back to a shelter, but she's ruining our lives.

Samantha asks...This question is about:
My dog has been very aggressive toward a dog that used to push him around when he was little.rnThey fight whenever they have a chance and is gotten so bad that we are considering getting rid of my dog. rnWe understand its a dominance thing but the fights are serious and hard to brake up, as if they are trying to fight to the death.rnMy dog is very smart and usually listens to me but when he is fighting he doesn't snap out of it. I've been bitten by him badly twice while braking up one of their fights. The last fight was a few days ago, they got out of the backyard and caught in someone's yard. No one could break them up until someone threw a brick at my dog.rnHe is only aggressive towards this one dog and it has to stop.rnAny advice on how to train him to be less aggressive?
Liz asks...This question is about:
I have a male dog, Charlie, who is very aggressive towards other dogs. We just got 1.5 year old lab mix and we are unsure how to integrate the new dog into our home. The new dog is very sweet and not aggressive at all. What can we do to make this introduction go smoothly? Will the aggressive dog eventually like the new dog?
