Katherine asks...This question is about:
My puppy won't stop pooping in the crate. He never used to do it and now I'm afraid he has "dirty dog syndrome". He normally pooped at 8 a.m after breakfast then at 6 p.m after dinner. Now he is pooping twice after dinner and once in the middle of the night. I get up every night to take him out only to find that he beat me to it and pooped in the crate. I have tried getting up earlier with no luck. The crate has the divider put up to where he can lay and stand. I also tried putting him in a smaller crate where he absolutely did not have space to poop anywhere. I thoroughly clean the crate and bathe him. Please tell me how to fix this. He just won't stop.

Okay so I want my dog to be a service dog kind of but like I just want her to go to Hospitals and cheer children up and I was just wondering what that would be called or how much it would cost?
Ashley asks...This question is about:
I am struggling with housetraining. I initially took her out every hour, and from that she developed a preference for going on grass and learned that it's better to go outside. However, I realized that she didn't know where was appropriate to go when she was inside. I yelled a few times (nothing drastic - just "Ahh!" or "NO!") and now she's afraid to go inside and won't go when I'm near. So, when I see her sniffing around, I try to calmly put her on the puppy pad but she just squirms and runs away and sometimes ends up going just a few feet away. rnrnMy goal is to have her understand that it's okay to go in the house - on the puppy pads - when she needs to and not to be scared...rnrnWhat can I do??
Sam asks...This question is about:
I have two husky/german/blue tick mixed dogs. They are 8 months old and are both females, sisters to be exact. I try to walk them as much as possible but it's very difficult to walk them. They pull so hard on their leashes, to the point where I have seriously injured my hands. They weigh a little over 50 pounds, and are incredibly strong. They both can pull me with no problem (and I am 165 pounds). I have tried to use clickers when they behave, treats, i have used harness, i have also used harnesses that will also squeeze them when they pull. Nothing is working. They are really nice at home and behave well at the dog park. It is the walk that is seriously bad. I want to try a choke collar, or even a shock collar, because that is all that i can afford, and I am at my whits end. Please help me, I can seriously use some advice
