Dylan asks...This question is about:
Hello! I rescued patches only three days ago. He was extremely timid when I first got him but he is slowly warming up. He still has some nervous energy to me and especially on walks but that is understandable. My question was when I go to take him on walks to go potty he tries to slide on the floor and resist. So instead of pulling him I started to pick him up and bring him outside. He is amazing at walking to the spot where he does to the bathroom but as soon as we turn back towards the house even if we aren't going home he gets very nervous and rushes back. I was hoping you had some training tips for getting him through the front door and helping him feel comfortable on walks.rnThank you for your time!rnDylan Hayes
Michaela asks...This question is about:
Shiloh is my parents dog. He is overly protective, aggressive, scared of everything, and just attacked the neighbors dog while the neighbors weren't around. My parents refuse to apologize to the neighbors and see if their dog is ok. They won't train Shiloh either. How do I confront them that if this goes uncorrected they could get in a seriously bad situation? I want to help some how.
Nancy asks...This question is about:
When we leave town, our wonderful neighbor always takes our dog. However, each time he is there, Murphy has at least a couple of accidents. I assume he is marking his territory (they have a dog and often watch their daughter's two dogs). My neighbor has started picking Murphy up from our house so there isn't the normal separation anxiety when we leave him there. This has helped but not cured the problem. Even though they are so gracious, I feel guilty leaving him with them! Any advice would be appreciated!

Scruffy was a foster failure 3 yrs ago for me he is high anxiety and has PRA. I already had a dachshund and they have always gotten along wonderfully. Recently a family member could not keep their beagle any longer and he's is now with me. All in all they all get along but when the dachshund and beagle play the lab goes after the beagle he doesn't understand they are just.playing and is protecting the dachshund. I take him out of the room tell him now then sit with him till he calms down. Do you have any other suggestions??
Eunice asks...This question is about:
I purchased Lucy when she was 4 months old. She was chained whenever she was outside. The few nights that I let her run, she would not come back.I permanently released her when she was about 2 1/2. Today, she will come to eat and sit with me awhile, then she will leave. She only comes around to eat. She stays near but favors my neighbors company when not eating. Have I lost her forever?
