Actually, this is my parents dog. They are in their 70's and heartbroken over this.rnLucy has been with them for 1 year. A rescue. She wears a field collar when she is outside and has about 2 acres to run.rnShe used to go with my dad everywhere. She would jump in his truck. He is too old to lift her in. Approximately 6 weeks ago, he failed to remove her collar before they left in the truck. I can't imagine how many radio frequencis her collar picked up, but she was in a lot of pain and fear before my dad realized what was happening. rnNow she won't get in the truck. They have tried to coax her in with treats to no avail. She will get in my mom's car, but not the truck. And since she is too large to lift, they are at a loss.rnCan you give them some tips to help get Lucy to trust going in the truck again? My dad is heartbroken over Lucy not wanting to jump in the truck anymore.rnThank you so much
Jessie asks...This question is about:
So my dog has been potty trained for at least two years. At first I would crate her when I left home but ALWAYS she would pee in her crate and smell gross and I would have to wash her. Like even if I was Gone 15 minutes... then I let her free, we have a dog door and another dog. She has very randomly had accidents in the house. Then out of nowhere it seems... she has found an area in the house by the dog door and keeps constantly peeing there no matter what I do. But she isn't peeing anywhere else? Maybe it's because it's cold? So I began crating her again. She is peeing like a ton in her crate now and when I let her out she is peeing more than ever in that spot. It's almost as if she is revenge peeing? What are your thoughts on this? Considering she isn't peeing anywhere else and has gone two years without this behavior? I'm so frustrated. Thanks! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Brittany asks...This question is about:
My dog is crazy. We try to walk him everyday to let his energy out because I get he's a big puppy(75lbs) in a small home, but nothing works. He chews everything except the toys he's given, he doesn't understand "no", he doesn't respond to a spanking, or treats. I mean nothing. rnHe also has no idea how to play. He just runs straight into you and head buts until you respond then he bites too hard and throws his very large paws at you face. What do I do? Nothing is working.
Jada asks...This question is about:
Whenever my dog gets intimate with his dog bed, and when we try to move him and touch him. He'll get really aggressive and start to show his teeth and growl to the point where he'll bite. He only does it when he hunches something. How do I stop this??
Terra asks...This question is about:
I have problems walking both my dogs. They don't walk when I take them out, they run. Which causes them to pull me around. I don't have a fenced in backyard so I can't let them run around outside. Is there anything I can do to get my dogs to stop running and pulling and just walk instead? I rarely walk them because of this issue, but I really want to take them on walks everyday. It's just not fun walking them when I'm being pulled so hard. They pull so hard that the leash chokes them and I'm scared they are gonna pass out from pulling. You'd think they would know to slow down when they start choking, but they don't care.
