Lisa asks...This question is about:
I am debating adopting a 4 month old bluetick coonhound mix, however would like to make a very smart decision before committing to such a big responsibility. I have done quite a bit of research as well as watched youtube videos of the dogs. I live in a townhouse that does not have a fenced in yard, however I am very active outside playing with my Boston Terrier and walking her daily. My biggest concern is a Bluetick constantly baying or barking with our neighbors so close. Is it possible to train the puppy to not be so vocal?

We've had Loki for about a week now. With daily training sessions we're making progress with basic commands (sit, stay, come, no). We've also made progress with his housebreaking. Unfortunately we have a major problem with nipping and chewing that we can't seem to break him of. Because it's summer, his exercise is limited during the daylight hours but we take him for a long run/play session in a local park after dark and he has several short walks during the day. He has several chew toys that we play with as well as a few chewing items (Rawhide and nylabone). He STILL chews on the furniture and nips at our hands/pant legs. We correct him using a firm and sometimes loud "No". We've tried tugging him away from the furniture by his collar (firmly but not hard enough to hurt him at all), we've tried grabbing the top of his muzzle so he can't bite. Nothing seems to work. Occasionally having to correct him might seem normal as he's a puppy, but he will go right back to it immediately after being corrected several times. We're at a loss. Any advice you can give would be helpful.

My husband and I adopted Ellie from the SPCA about 4 weeks ago. They had told us she was potty trained, however it didn't take long for us to figure out that infact she is NOT. We have tried numerous approaches to potty train but nothing seems to be working.. Is it too late (is she too old)? Let us know if you can help us. If we can't train her she is going to have to go back to the shelter:-(
