Leigha asks...This question is about:
How can I get her separation anxiety to go away? It's not too bad, but she constantly howls till she's panting when we're away. We have tried stuffed Kong's and treats before we leave. She whines when we're getting ready, even if we're in a different room with the door closed. We can't even take a shower without her whining and barking.rnWe've tried everything I've read and nothing has helped.
Well my dog was given to me about 2 months ago but I didn't get a birth certificate , can I register him as my own even though he still under his owner
Chris asks...This question is about:
I am having trouble potty training my 9 month old toy poodle. I have been rewarding her with treats whenever she pees or poops on a pee pad. Some days she does very well and does everything on the pad like I want her to. Other times, she will pee or poop wherever she wants. rnrnBefore I go to bed, I gate her up in a bedroom and tell her to go potty. Sometimes she does well. In that case, I praise her and give her a treat. Other times she will go in front of the pads, or even right in front of the gate.rnrnI don't know what else to do. I reward her when she does well and scold her when she doesn't go on the pads. This has been ongoing since last fall.
Joslyn asks...This question is about:
I have two problems. The first one is we cannot get her to go to the bathroom outside. We let her out play with her then give her time to do her stuff but she won't. She goes on the potty pad as soon as she comes in. My second problem is she doesn't like little kids. I have a 3 year old nephew who she has nipped at. We don't know how to break her of it.
Liz asks...This question is about:
My dog asks to go outside and go potty, we bell trained him. He is crated at night and never has accidents in his kennel. He is crated overnight for 6 hours, then 3 more hours after that. However, when he is awake he goes out to pee every 10-20 mins sometimes. Recently I kept track and he rang the bells 5 times in 40 mins and went out and peed every single time. Shouldn't he be able to hold his bladder longer than this? If he had a UTI wouldn't he be peeing in his kennel at night?
