This question is about: Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc

We installed a doggie door for her to go outside whenever she wants. The door was fully open the other day and her and our other dog (9 months) took items out of our home and chewed them up. They know if it's in the house, they can't destroy it. But when it goes outside they think it's theirs to demolish. Help?

When I got my dog from a shelter 7+ years ago he weighed 9 pounds and was mostly bone; he had been picked up on the street as a starving stray. At 12 pounds he looks great and appears to feel well. However, keeping him at that weight is difficult. He will eat anything remotely resembling food, including tissues and food wrappers. He has bitten my hand badly twice when I have tried to take food away from him, and was at the emergency vet's once from eating something that made him sick.rnrnWe recently moved from the USA to the Middle East. Our community has many feral cats, which people feed. His high-bulk, lower-calorie food is not available here. I have him on a high quality dog food, but less than recommended. I bulk it up by adding green beans or another of his favorite low-cal veggies. However, he has still gotten fat scavenging. There is no shortage of bread, cookies, bones, and more on the paths or in the shrubbery so he always finds something.rnrnHe is very stubborn and has proven very, very difficult to train, as my BB trainer can attest. I am at my wits' end.

My newly acquired dog has just recently become ovsessed with diapers. Not dirty ones, just clean ones that my son is wearing. Any time he sees the diaper even if my son has pants on, he jumps up and will freak out trying to sniff/get the diaper. How do I stop this?

This question is about: Separation Anxiety Other

Did I give my dog anxiety? I left for college about less than 4 months ago and my dog was left with my family (2 adults 3 children and 1 elderly dog). Two weeks ago, I brought my dog up here with me because I got a cabin that I can have her in. Since I went down to visit her, the week I brought her up, she had been exceptionally clingy, but I passed it off as her missing me. She did great the flights up here, but since she's been home she whines at me constantly. She won't leave my side, even when guests are over or we are visiting somewhere. She seems to whine for no reason. She likes to stand by the door and whine, even if I just took her on a 20 minute walk. I often take her out in the yard for fetch to try to tire her out and calm her down, but nothing seems to keep her whining, and what seems to be anxiety, at bay.
