Hello, rnrnWhen I first adopted Peanut, he whined when I left the apartment. After working with him for a couple of days and leaving at increasing time intervals, he doesn't even pay attention when I leave. However, when I am in public with him and a friend/family member, and I step away for a moment, he whines frantically until I return. Do you have any tips on how to deal with this behavior? rnrnThank you, rnAbby

My problem is he has tried to kill my cat but when we walk on a leash & he sees one all I have to do is pull on the leash once & say NO & he just keeps walking,I also have two small chihuahua dogs which he seems to get along with them but just two nights ago I was getting ready for bed & the little ones sleep in my sons room so I was getting them in & Graham came around the corner& all of a sudden he attacked the chihuahua which if my son had not been there he would have killed him he did puncture a small hole in the side of his face vet said did not hurt anything vital but now everyone ones me to get rid of Graham which I can't seem to do but I have not been able to sleep the past two nights as that picture keeps coming into my head ? What can I do? My son wants to send him to wounded warriors to keep the small animals safe but he is a great dog there have been 6 episodes since I got hmi last Nov.

Chris asks...This question is about:
When I wipe my dogs feet or brush him he growls and tries to bite me. I say "uh uh no bite" and sometimes I put him on his side and hold him down til he settles. I am concerned about his aggression and want to know how to properly train him not to bite or growl when I am doing something he does not want me to do.
Deanna asks...This question is about:
IIs it possible for my dog to have jealously issues with me? Every time my boyfriend pays attention to me my dog gets mad. She will go potty on the rug even if she was just taken outside. It started shortly after we got her when we would go in the kitchen to cook and it has carried on to happening when we get into bed together. Every time she has gone outside within half an hour of it happening. Is this behavior possible and if so how can we fix it?

How do I keep my dog calm around other dogs and friendlier with other dogs? How do I teach him the recall anywhere I am with or without a leash.
