My dog Ham is a 3 year-old French bulldog. He is potty trained and generally a very well trained and behaved dog. Our problem is that he asks repeatedly to go potty. We take him out in the morning when we get up, after he eats breakfast, before we leave the house, when we get home, after dinner, and before bed. So we are taking him out a lot as it is. I don't believe that he has to go out more than that. I had a Boston Terrier for 10 years and I took him out about twice a day and that was enough. I am getting angry about taking him out so much. I have looked for answers. He goes out on a leash or cable. And only to go potty. If he doesn't go, he's brought back inside. He gets a fair amount of exercise too.

So I brought my dog to petsmart puppy training. He passed but the skills have barely stuck. My boyfriend and I have been together for 6 yrs and have know eachother for 15years we are a stable home. Yet live in an apartment, come March we r looking to move into a town house with a fenced yard. I am an RN with odd hrs he is an accountant. We love Finlay but at night now lock him in the kitchen bc he has ripped apart so many pillows and comforters. His potty training is better he still poops but only in the kitchen and pees still in there. He growls for no reason at times. Wants to chew everything. Barks at every noise. And has started nipping. He does not obey 89% of the time. He is the love of our lives and has an incredibly strong personality. We want him to be himself but trained. We r a lot of the problem I'm guessing. I fostered dogs for 10 years but this is the first time I have had to train. He can be the most loving dog ever but has started having odd behaviors. Please help

So we just got our dog Lilly about a week ago from a pet rescue center. She is a very calm, and loving dog that's about 3 years old (we think). We tried leaving her in our house alone when we went grocery shopping and we came back to find that she had torn down all the blinds in our house. After that we have put her in a plastic kennel every time we leave the house but she chews at the base of the gate and has actually started chewing through the plastic. She chews to the point that there is blood on the area where she chews and her gums are clearly irritated. She has already had to have two teeth removed due to what the vet said was chewing on a wire create while she was at the rescue center. She doesn't like playing with toys and she has a huge conscience. We walk her for 20-30 min every day so we don't think that it's a lack of exercise. How can we keep her from chewing on the plastic crate?
