I signed a lease before I rescued my dog, so he is staying with my family 8 hours away for one school year (I'm in college). Will I still be able to train him to be a personal protection dog for myself after his stay with them?

This question is about: Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc

Lately Daphne has been getting things from the kitchen counter; she ate a half a pumpkin pie & bagel, so we now keep food off the counter. Today when I ran errands she decided to take the wooden spoon I had washed & was drying to her bed to chew up. Is there something we can do to stop her from getting things on the kitchen counters?

This question is about: Toileting

Hi,rnrnI got my puppy a month ago and have been trying to house-train him since day 1. I've been using all the tips I find online. I've been rewarding him with a toy every time he goes outside and saying no and taking him outside if i catch him doing his business inside. I take him out almost every hour when I'm around but he still ends up having accidents at least once a day if he's left unsupervised for a slight amount of time. Also, if I dont take him out every hour he ends up peeing inside. Shouldn't he be able to hold it for 5 hours since he's 5 months old. Also, he doesn't have accidents when he's left alone in the room but he has accidents if there are people around. Its very confusing and a little stressful. How do you suggest I go about house-training him? rnrnThank you,rnSwechhya.

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Puppy Management Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household Other

I have a 12 week old puppy, and a 14 week old kitten. I've had the kitten 6 weeks, and the puppy for 2 weeks. They adore eachother and always want to be together, so it's not easy to just separate them - they whine / meow on oposit sides of the door. The problem is that they constantly want to play together butt are too rough. I'm afraid they will hurt eachother and am always telling them no / separating them. The play escalates very quickly. Our puppy mouths / bites when he plays (with humans too) and while he's been very trainable, I'm having a harder time training that out of him. My kitten is also a rough player and will bite our hands too hard as well. However, they both want to play all the time. What can I do to teach them to both be more gentle with one another? I need them to safely coexist.
