Melissa asks...This question is about:
A dog was abandoned in our neighborhood back in Dec. He was obviously abused by a man. He freaks out if you try to put a leash on him, he is skiddish and jumpy, he won't go into the dog house that was bought for him. After 10 months my husband has still not been able to pet him. We have been feeding him and trying to connect. He seems so damaged to never be a normal pet. Is it possible to train a dog that is so emotionally damaged?
Jen asks...This question is about:
My dog barks excessively and we can seem to get him to stop. He barks at people playing outside, he barks at the lawn maintenance people, and he barks when a car pulls up in the driveway. Why and how can we fix this?

Good afternoon,rnMy wife and I just bought a male malamute. He is 8 weeks old. We already have a husky that is almost 8 months old. She is not liking the new addition to the family. We keep them in different rooms and alternate who goes out to the back yard and hang around the house for a while. Poor puppy has to be in kennel most of the time because my husky would try to attack him if she sees him. We take them on walks together and just when we think shes finally being nice to him, she turns around and bites him (tries to, we stopped it). We are running out of ideas. Its only been 2 days tho, so it could be too soon for her to get use to him being around. You think we should keep doing what we are doing for a few weeks and see how it goes? Hope you can help. Have an awesome day.
Maria asks...This question is about:
My dog has become extremely aggressive all of the sudden when we try to take things off of him, such as cat toys or food he should not eat, and when we try to put him in his crate. He cannot be left out when we are not home because he tries to play too rough with our cat. He even drew blood on my husband. I do not know what to do. Please help.
