our dogs are special to us, but when people come to the house, they bark forever and one bites the feet of people. if people sit down there doesn't seem to be a problem. Nikki is the chocolate lab and she is so sweet that she licks people to death. we have 3 females and Teddy is the maltese and is a male. I hope you can give me some hints as to what to do.
Misty asks...This question is about:
Hello, my dog Ohana gets really excited about the treats I give her when training. (I use hotdogs, cut up into small pieces.) She jumps up a lot and gets really really excited, I know it's good that she is excited about the reward, but she focuses so much on the treat she wont listen to my commands. How do I redirect her focus to listening to the commands? Do you think switching the treat will help? If so what do you suggest?

Sara asks...This question is about:
How do we keep our two female dogs from fighting? They are outdoor dogs. We have six (three females and three males), but the two we've had the longest are the ones who fight. They started the fighting when they were around two and two and a half (I think) before we had the other four. It's usually over treats or attention, but sometimes it happens when no one is even outside with them. This last time was really bad, we were afraid Molly (who is slightly bigger) was going to kill Sadie. They're separated now on either side of a chain link fence (they can still see each other) because we didn't know what else to do. Now they're barking and licking each other through the fence some like they want to be back in together. If we even try to give Sadie attention, Molly comes over and stands in the way. She'll just stare at Sadie, sometimes growling and it sometimes leads to another fight. We love them and don't want to have to get rid of one. What actions can we take toward finding a solution, so they will get along and we won't have to worry about them fighting anymore?
