This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Other

Hi there! So I have a a German Shepard who is a 10 year old male. He has always been an aggressive dog not liking any other humans besides the one In the household or any dogs. We recently took him over my grandma's and he tried to bite there little dog in a really aggressive scary way. He is 140 pounds and has been the only dog in the house since he was born. My girlfriend will be moving in with my next year and she has to bring her 2 year old pekingese into the home. She is a little tiny dog and I am afraid my dog will try to harm her dog. How do I go about bringing a new dog into the home to avoid a horrible situation like that?rnThank you! rnJared

This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Separation Anxiety Other

My dog and I moved to Seattle two months ago just two weeks ago moved into our new apartment. Before moving into the apartment Mona developed some separation anxiety - to be expected with such a big change, but it has escalated to higher levels of fear and anxiety since we have moved in. I am losing sleep because she is terrified of going to bed at night, constantly pacing, crying, and licking her lips. I fear that she will never adjust to our new home, is there anything I can do to help her in this time of transition?

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Other

Hello! My dog does well on the leash and at dog parks with every dog except huskies and similar in appearance breeds. Is there a reason for this? Is there anything I can do to try and work with him to fix this issue? I'm not sure where this came from, as his "best friend" when he was little was a huskie. This is a new development within the past year, which I cannot think of a moment which could have been a trigger for this problem.rnThank you!

Dear Vet,rnrnI really am desperate to know whether or not should I have to take any vaccination as I think I got a short nip of size of a small needke dot from a one month fifteen days Pomeranian puppypuppy which is being tamed byby my neighbours.The problem is I can't justify whether or not it(nip) has happened with the puppy or not.ButBut,I request you to kindly help me out through this situation.I also heard that there won't be any problem if the puppy is under 3 months old and is not vaccinated.So,I request you to let me know whether should I have to get vacction or there won't be any problem.rnHoping to hear you back.rnrnRegards,rnT.Sai Manoj Kumar

This question is about: Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

Dugan always got along well with his "cousin" Shamus (now nearing 10 yrs., Dugan is nearing 6) until our last visit some months back to Shamus' home. All went well until Dugan decided HE was the Alpha boy and some really scary, but bloodless, fights broke loose...mostly over toys but especially when Dugan went anywhere near Shamus' mom (my daughter).rnThanksgiving coming up with Shamus and his "parents" driving in from CT for a several day visit. In the past (even during our last visit) the boys could be left alone with no problem...they actually got along (both are neutered). My do I avoid any unnecessary confrontations during our family visit...short of separating in closed rooms (which could be a possible disaster) and removing all toys. If my daughter is seated, Shamus will park his body right in front of her...but Dugan will approach (because he loves her) which Shamus DOES NOT approve. I understand he thinks he's protecting her but how can we avoid those unnecessary situations.rnSure hope there's a way to solve this problem. Thanks, Maril
