Dr Harry, we have just adopted a 6 year old Dalmation
Hello Dr Harry, we have just adopted a 6 year old Dalmation from the RSPCA. He has been with us nearly 2 weeks. He has settled well at home and is quite obedient, understands "sit" and "wait", doesn't dig or eat plants, washing etc so a model dog. However, he walks well until another dog comes in sight and shows unpleasant behaviour, lunging at the other dog in a very aggressive way. Can you help us with training ideas to curb this bad habit please.Thank you,Alice and ***** *****
I have an 11 month old Westiepoo who has been house trained.
I have an 11 month old Westiepoo who has been house trained. 99% of the time he goes out the doggy door and is happy to poop outside. Recently, early in the morning he has started pooping on the carpet in the lounge room. We started blocking his access with a barrier we put up at night and if he can't get to the carpet, he will go outside. Even after blocking his access for several weeks at a time, first opportunity he gets in the early mornings, he will use the carpet. He is an incredibly happy little dog who in every other way is a perfect pooch. He is very loved, comes with us in our caravan when we go away( has never disgraced himself in the van) and, yes he has his own set of steps to get up onto our bed where he has slept from the very first night we got him, we have 2 other Westiepoos, one 16 , one 5, who he gets on really well with. Just want to know how to stop him pooing on the carpet, when I know he is happy to go outside. Would appreciate your advice. Thanking you in anticipation, Alison Goode

i adopted a rescued dog and now she will not come into the house or let us get close to her at all. she eats on the deck after the door is closed and there is no way we can catch her. the mosquitos are terrible and were worried sick about her. she seems happy in the yard but is she in real danger? she is a husky mix .

i have 2 dogs from a shelter. female 8 months lab retriever and 9 month small/medium lab retriever male. the female always tried to be the leader but they have been together for 6 months now in our house sleeping and together all the time, Yesterday, I bought 2 bones and gave them both one, the female attacked the small male and they got in a big fight and she bit him hard. i feel very worried and sad because I wish I could know if I could bring them back to be friends again, but am scared. i brought the male inside and left the bid female outside. i love the both, but i dont know what or how to put them together. will they be friends again?
