Justin asks...This question is about:
Our dog gets very vocal when she plays with other dogs. We know she's just playing, but at the dog park people stare at us lIke our dog is attacking theirs. We don't know what to do about it and we want to continue to socialize her, but need some advice.
Jenn asks...This question is about:
My dog usually only barks when someone comes to the door or when my husband is leaving. Now I have a grandson who is 1 1/2 and the dog barks at him constantly (like when he cries, when he runs, any sudden movement he makes). We only have my grandson once in a while to babysit but it sure does add to the stress of watching a toddler when all that barking is happening. Alos, the dog will sometimes nip at his clothes if we pick him up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Rescued dog today from humane society. It is aggressive towards another dog I have so daughter is caring for it. I also have 2 indoor dogs that are territorial that have not been introduced. I would love me to keep this dog but am unsure what to do.
Mark asks...This question is about:
We got our puppy when she was 8 weeks old, she spent the first two weeks in my sisters room, during this time I was the only one feeding her, and playing with her, and even doing a bit of training such as teaching her name, how to sit, and to come when called. When she was about 10 weeks old my sister kicked her out of her room because she wasn't cleaning up after the pee and poop (i got her puppy pads) and put the play area I built into the hallway, I immedietly moved it into my room and that's where it stayed. Eventually I trained her to both pee and poop outside, and one night she was on my bed and I fell asleep before I could put her into her area with her bed, and from there on she wouldn't sleep in her bed and I was fine with that because ever since she started sleeping with me I've had no anxiety attacks. rnNow shes 5 and a half months old and recently she's been sleeping in my sisters room and of course she'll let her because I trained her not to pee inside. But i just don't know why she wants to sleep in there, my sister doesn't play with her, feed her, train her, or take her outside for walks to pee and poop.rnAt like 2 am she'll wake up and come back into my room and spend the night but I don't know why she'll initialy want to be in there. I know I shouldn't care and just be happy that my dogs happy but Im getting panic attacks again and I really don't like them
Emily asks...This question is about:
We just adopted a dog yesterday. He is so friendly, housetrained, just an all around good dog. He was in a foster home with young kids so he was good with them. When I brought him home, all was fine. He let both of my boys play with him and he gave them kisses, everything was good. Now, all of a suddenly he keeps nipping at my 5 year old son's face. He hasn't hurt him but I'm afraid he will. He is great with my 8 year old. I'm not sure what to do to get him to stop doing this as he hadn't done it before to the 4 year old living in the foster home with him. My son is afraid to go near him. It doesn't happen all the time but enough that I'm concerned. What do I do?rnrnEmily Brown
