My four year old dominate dog Bruce tried to rip off my other 8 month old puppy's testicles. I'm afraid to re introduce them and I don't want to get rid of either of them. I'm so frustrated and scared and don't know what to do. Please help me.
Allie asks...This question is about:
Our border, Rigley, started this habit of barking incessantly at 6am every morning. We shut the curtains; no one is driving by at that time. Everyone around us is retired. We turned on a radio for her, gave her a special toy, tried giving her treats. She sleeps in a separate room in a kennel. We thought she was barking because she could hear us, hence the radio. However, nothing has worked. It's terrible! I've made her do tricks in her kennel to earn food and create a positive association. It's not working. I'm about to move her kennel to the garage.
Areil asks...This question is about:
Barking, lunging at larger house dog. She is a new dog I rescued. Her mouth is open when she does this, so it seems she would bite if she could. She is 20 pounds. She does not seem interested in meeting or being friendly to the other dog. Rotti, 90 pounds. This dog is now avoiding walking near her cage during her times out and even goes out to sit on the deck. Anytime she walks back in small dog will bark until she settles back down. I don't know if she has some type of aggression or what. I've never experienced this before. She is very social with people and sweet. If she goes too long with no attention she will bark.
Alanna asks...This question is about:
My dog is completely house trained except if hes not feeling well he might have an accident. I had been unemployed for months and recently started a full-time job. He has the same walker as he did before I got laid off and she comes midday. Last week I started my new job and I leave the house at 8am and come home at 5 30pm. His walker comes between 1-2. We are on week 2 of my new schedule and he has pooped in the house 3 days in a row after the walker showed up. I leave the tv on for him and he has toys. I let him out and feed him at 6 30 am. I really dont want to have to crate him as he hasnt used a crate in almost 2 years.
Kim asks...This question is about:
Hi, I have three dogs, a puggle, a German shepherd mix, and a yorkie mix. The biggest issue I'm facing with them currently is our mornings. Every morning at 6:15 sharp our dogs jump out of our bed and do anything to wake us up to get us to feed them/let them out. They will bark and run on our heads and step on us, etc. I have tried ignoring them for long amounts of time and nothing works because my puggle can whine and bark for hours. How do I get this to stop? They are in charge in the mornings and I need it to stop.
