My husband hired you guys several years ago for Lucy and has sung your praises ever since. He suggested that I ask you this question: Does it really matter if I use the lead (loop around one wrist and holding it in the other) to walk our dog or buy a retractable leash and just have it in one hand only extended to the same length that I would be holding the lead anyway. My husband insists that "Bark Busters' way is what we are supposed to do", but I don't really see the difference, and to me, who walks the dog, not having to content with extra stuff in my hands would be easier. What are your thoughts? Also, WHERE can I find another marquez collar? I have looked around and no one seems to carry them? We now have a second dog, and I'd like one for her too. Thanks! Jo
Erin asks...This question is about:
I inherited Stew when I got married to my husband and he is my husband's best friend. Since we've been married, Stew has gone from liking me to hating me and has bit me twice and generally dislikes me. If I pet him or touch him, he will either snap at me or bite me. He does this when he is sitting next to my husband or when it is just me and him. I will add, that I have never hit him and he has no reason to dislike me. Stew is a nervous dog and constantly barks, when he is up in a window barking at something, he gets aggressive with our other dogs (we have 3, a lab and a chihuahua). We also have a 5 year old in the house that I am concerned about, however, Stew seems to love our kiddo. I will be really blunt, I am at wits end with this dog, but I am trying to figure out how to train him appropriately so that this does not happen anymore.
Audry asks...This question is about:
How can I get my dog to stay in my back yard?!?!rnrnMy dog, Tyson, is very loving and very obedient when he's inside but I cannot get him to stay in the yard for anything. I've tried the clicker method, remote controlled shock collar and now we have an electric fence that he's learned he can take the shock and still jump over the fence even when the electric fence is on maximum strength. A lot of the reason is because he's nosey and if there's anyone or anything outside the fence he wants to be apart of it. rnIt's getting so bad that my parents can no longer handle it when I'm not around. If I can't get this fixed ill have to get rid of him. I don't know what else to do.he's very smart, I can teach him everything ut there but I can't get him to stay in the yard. Please help me!!
