Dog Goes Crazy in the Car

– Posted in: Columns

My 2 year snoodle loves to go in the car but by the time we have gone half a block this dog goes crazy in the car. She goes nuts. She wants to be on the drivers lap, she howls and barks and carries on and is extremely distracting and embarrassing. My family lives out [...]

Dog Chases the Cat

– Posted in: Columns

Saturn is my 2-year-old Chihuahua and from day one has wanted to chase my cats – which I have 4 of. 1 out of the 4 she enjoys “play fighting” with. When this dog chases the cat she is absolutely relentless. Every day we probably tell her “NO!” 20-50 times when she goes after him. [...]

Seniors and Dogs

– Posted in: Columns

My husband and I have had cats over 40 years and that last one died in February at the age of 20. Now we’d like to get a dog. This way we can take them with us when we go out for a walk or in the car. Are seniors and dogs a good idea? [...]

Dog Growls Menacingly

Animal Rescue Philosophies

– Posted in: Columns

For the first time in my life I am dog less. I am wondering if I should go to an animal rescue and get an older dog or at what age can a pup tolerate the 9-5 work schedule I have. D.S. Hi D.S. If you’re on your own amongst other things even with a [...]

Rottweiler and Baby

– Posted in: Columns

I have a 6 year old Rottweiler that I love dearly. We just had a baby 5 weeks ago and we need help with introducing the baby. So far, I am not too sure about what he is thinking. He is probably jealous and I’m not sure if he is aggressive towards the baby or [...]
