Eva asks...This question is about:
Sam has three other rescue dogs in the house. He’s been getting increasingly aggressive towards Jake his 5 year old dog brother. He’ll mount Jake and despite our telling him to get off Jake, he continues. He’s been put in his kennel, told bad dog, at the time and he’s calmed down. I have not been able to walk the dogs this past few weeks because of the cold so I don’t know if he’s stir crazy. The other dogs don’t seem to have problems with him. I need a Bark Buster!
Zee asks...This question is about:
We got a little poochon off craigslist about a month ago, he is 4 months old. The previous owners work full time so Teddy(our puppy) was in a crate almost all the time, he was fed kibble from Day I after nursing, his ears were clogged with wax and hair when we got him, he had never been bathed , (except that day), he sleeps in his crate almost all night and eats and drinks well, I feed him a moist food mixed with kibble to keep his stool pretty hard. He is very loving and tries to be obedient and is sometimes. He follows me wherever I go and whines when I go to the bathroom or take a showe and shut the door, in other words, if I’m out of sight, he whines-Our huge problem is that he has severe separation anxiety when I put him in his crate to go to the store or out for a brief time, he barks, cries and whines, all the while jumping , defecating and urinating, it all ceases once he is out of the cage-will he ever feel more secure enough that his separation anxiety ceases, it frustrates my husband and I to say the least , we do not feel we have any freedom at all anymore , it is exhausting, I see no hope for future with this puppy, we are seriously contemplating on giving him up, can you help -plus he is scared of everyone— Zee Fernandez
Kaitlin asks...This question is about:
My dog just barks and snaps at people. He seems to be more aggressive since we got him fixed. How do we help this issue? Also we live in an apartment and have taken him to my brothers everyday to play in a yard and play with his best friend. We would like to leave him home as my brother is selling his house.
Kris asks...This question is about:
My dog barks at every noise when we’re gone and it’s upsetting my neighbors.
Shalyn asks...This question is about:
Why does my dog growl at people sometimes. Even people she knows. One minute she’s fine with them then she gets scared of them. For instance my boyfriend was petting her belly and then he stop and had his hand laying on her still and then she bit him hard. And if I’m not around her she will go hide under the bed from other people and she will growl at them if they try to tell her to come out. Or if I’m sitting on the couch with her for a little while and then my boyfriend comes over to the couch from the other room she will growl at him. Why does she do this? It seems like she’s scared. Can this be fixed?
