Libby asks...This question is about:
Hey! So I'm trying to introduce my roommate's dog to my cat. My cat is completely comfortable with dogs, I think she thinks she's a dog, but her dog gets really weird when meeting even other dogs. He has SOOOO much energy and barks a lot. Even when Bentley met my dog, Yeti, it was intimidating. He gets too excited and just barks and charges full speed towards the other dog and plows right into them trying to play, but usually ending up in a not so friendly tussle. Wondering how you might suggest introducing them to each other. We've tried holding Bentley and letting him see my cat, but he just barks and tries to charge her and that scares her away. Any ideas we could try!? Thanks so much!
Andrew asks...This question is about:
I've had Zoe for almost two months now, and her house breaking isn't going as smooth as planned. She's crate trained, walked every two or three hours, and fed the right amount of food. She does good when she is taken out, she eliminates as told with no issues. But at times, she seems to have no regard for her training, pooping on the carpet and even in her crate when she hasn't slept all day and put in there at night for bed. She goes constantly through out the day, as if she doesn't even try to hold it in to "go outside". Please help, I'm losing my patience lol.
Kasara asks...This question is about:
I have a 8 month old puppy who is a blue nose out and she will eat everything even with tons of toys and I do keep things up she just seems to get ahold of them somehow and she crate trained and potty trained but when I'm sleeping for a long time frame or if she is not carted she will potty in the house i have cleaned it all with enzyme cleaner. I have never had a dog be this hard to train any advice?
How do I add a picture to my review?
Carol asks...This question is about:
My sister is a licensed dog trainer, however I question some of her training methods. I'm in my late 60's and have been trying to train my dog to use a potty box for toileting. She does fairly well when she pees, but continues to poop on the floor. The way I've found to prevent her from doing this is to put a pad on the floor by her potty box to poop on. She will use the pad on the floor consistently. My sister says that I'm confusing my dog by putting a pad on the floor for her to use and get's upset with me if I do. The problem that I have is with my sister being a dog trainer, and helping me to train Diamond, claims that I'm not being the "alpha dog" and I should "make her use the potty box to poop in". Is my sister right in what she's claiming or is it okay for me to continue to put pads on the floor for my dog to use?
