Phillip asks...This question is about:
I have a six year old male mixed breed dog and a 8 month old female boxer mix. Both are neutered/spayed. The female is becoming very aggressive to the male and they are getting into fights. There has been no damage or blood. I do not understand why this is happening or what to do about it.
Nancy asks...This question is about:
Dusty appears to have anxiety issues around going anywhere new, walking on white floors, and when anyone comes to visit. He crouches low to the ground and wines. Sometimes his tail is wagging but he seems distressed. Is there something I can do to help him. Does he need medication? He is well trained and responds to commands easily. He is happy and comfortable at home and in our yard.
Vakenciya asks...This question is about:
So I went on a walk and there was a dog walking towards us. My dog went to smell the other dog and the other dog jumped on my dog. Me and the other owner pulled our dogs away gently and walked away. After we walked away and she barked back at the dog. Why? She also barks at other dogs across the street from us. Another example is when I was walking her and she smelled a cat. I told her lets go and gently pulled her and she barked at the cat. Why does she do this?
Hilary asks...This question is about:
My dog is the sweetest thing ever but he will turn on me if I touch a paw or tail. He has gotten a little better since he has turned two but will still draw blood. He is a Velcro dog and is basically my child. How do I fix this behavior? Can this be corrected? I just can't spank him. I don't understand why he is so angry? I have never hurt him to be so aggressive. He never leaves my side when we are together. I just don't get it ;Thank you!
Timothy asks...This question is about:
I leave pepper at home alone for many hours a day, but no matter how long I leave her, she uses the house as a potty. Ive tried putting her in a cage with little room, she will potty in the corner and lay next to it; So I no longer do that. I now leave her out and hope for the best, Im trying to get her to use a potty pad but she doesn't pay it any mind. I've tried spraying it and putting her on top of it to get her to smell it but she just turns away from it. I've tried putting a clothe I've cleaner her pee with under the grass part of it, but she still pays it no mind.... So my question is what can I do to get her to use it?
