Judy asks...This question is about:
I have my puppy since he was 3 weeks old and is 7 months. I cannot house break him. Pease I need help!!!!
Tillie asks...This question is about:
My puppy will not quit biting, snapping at, and chewing my arms and hands. I have done everything I can find: bitter cherry spray on my arms, yelping and leaving the room when he bites, telling him no, redirecting to a toy, etc. Nothing helps. He bites my legs when I leave the room, and chews my feet when I re-enter (so i leave again and it happens all over). He is breaking the skin, and my arms are covered in cuts. I don't know how to handle this.rnHe is getting fixed in 3 weeks, once he has his booster shots. Could this be the problem, that he's not fixed yet? He only does this to me, nobody else, so I didn't think at first that it was testosterone aggression, but now I'm not sure.
Briana asks...This question is about:
My husband and I have 2 miniature poodles, Mochi (4 yrs) and Nori (9 mos). We started training them to use a litter box inside 4 months ago. Mochi uses the litter box without fail, however Nori only uses it when she knows we're watching. We praise her ecstatically and give her treats when we see her use the litter box, but when we're asleep or away for a few hours, she will urinate and defecate anywhere and everywhere in our apartment. How do we get her to only use the litter box?
Nancy asks...This question is about:
We recently adopted Dolly from the humane society shelter. They indicated she had been left inside all day and thus urinated and deficated once daily inside.She has been with us for about a month and the problem is becoming serious. We have a pet door and she uses it to come and go if I let her out. She has a terrible problem if she is approached inside and immediately urinates where ever she is. I have had the vet examine her and found no problems. My question is how can I make her more comfortable when we approach or even talk to her. She is very sweet and I want her to be a happy part of our family.
