Celina asks...

This question is about: Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety Toileting

My dog is no longer listening to anyone in my family. When we got her, we trained her and until this last summer, she did pretty good. Now we can't get her to listen. She poops and pees in her bed at night and on the floor during the day, she takes food off of the counter if she is left alone for even a second, and she keeps biting and scratching on herself, which used to be a sign of her separation anxiety, but even with me around it has gotten worse.

I was just wondering if you know of any fix to her issues? If I cant figure out what is going on, I am going to have to get rid of her.

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger

I have 3 yorkies (ages 6, 8 and 10). My 8 year old yorkie has got very aggressive over the years. She never started fights for the first several years we had her.. But she has started fighting the other yorkies on a daily basis. Vicious fights. She always starts it, and has no teeth so we try to pick her up to prevent harm and end up getting bit or scratched up. We've already removed food bowls off the floor. When she eats, she has to eat in the bathroom by herself. (There was fights happening there too). The other two yorkies do not fight each other. We are debating putting her to sleep. Any suggestions? Recommended drugs?

This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Separation Anxiety Toileting

My problem is time, it is not on my side. We work, we have a baby (18 mo). The puppy is a good dog when she's calm but refuses to listen and refuses to stop nipping at baby when hyper. Do you think it would help to build an obstacle course to run her in when she is hyper?
