Derek asks...This question is about:
Berry has been recently showing aggression towards my girlfriends father at their own house. He loves to play fight but with her father it seems like he's getting very defensive. I was just wondering how to avoid these types of reactions. He will bark loudly and take a defensive stance towards him if he tries to command him or move him off of furniture. Thank you.
Nicole asks...This question is about:
Mako will not use the bathroom outside. She will go as soon as she gets back in the house. I have a fenced in yard I take her in, I walk her down the street, but she will hold it until she gets back inside. She used to go outside when she was younger but now she will not.
Michaela asks...This question is about:
we brought Koda home this past weekend on March 11. Since then we take him outside to go potty and play for a bit and he does. he has only had about 3 accidents in the house otherwise he goes outside when we take him out. we have since then introduced him to the crate. I have given his meals to him in his crate and he does go in to eat and drink and then comes back out. the door is left open and sometimes he will take a toy in his crate and lay down, sometimes he will go just to lay down. But as soon as the door gets shut he will go nuts (barking, yelping, screaming, howling and going potty in his cage (only poops) because he is so nervous) even if we are standing right there next to him while he is in the crate. I need some help please!
Caroline asks...This question is about:
We got a playmate for my dog about a year ago, and up until now they have been best friends. When we got Sammie (her playmate, a red heeler) she was a puppy and she grew up with Sadie. Sadie has always made sure she is seen as the dominate with our older dog, and Sammie used to accept her as that. Recently, Sammie has been going back at Sadie and not backing down, and a few days ago, they got into a serious fight and wouldn't stop. Me and my mom both had to see a doctor from trying to separate them. How do we handle this problem. They are best friends one minute and fighting the next. The fights only happen every couple of weeks but it is terrible just waiting for the next one to happen. Please help.
