I saw an episode of IMOTD where Victoria was working with Huskys. She had the owners get leashes that went around their (the owners) waist. You have more control from your waist than with your hand apparently. Also this way, the owners were able to run while the husky pulled them. Good excercise for...

Peeing out of fear or excitement

Before we moved my dog Charlie was getting to the point where he was having very few if any accidents in the house at all. About a week before we moved, he started scratching at the door as an indicator that he needed to go out. I was ecstatic about this! Charlie has been difficult to train and it w...

I think you should be okay taking him to the park. But if the spaniel shows up, you may want to take extra caution. Dogs are smart. Your dog will probably remember this spaniel and will remember their spat. My pup Charlie got chased and rolled in the dirt a week ago by a bigger dog. Yesterday this d...

There was an incident with my puppy Charlie at the Dog Park a week or so ago. A bigger dog chased him and rolled him in the dirt 5 or 6 times before I could get to him, and before the dog's owner could get her dog (who's name i later learned to be Brady) to stop. We ran into Brady again today at the...

Man...Lexi really hates this thing....I feel awful.....yeah she isnt pulling, but the pulling has been replaced by her shaking her head violently and her stopping mid walk to paw at her face......
How long should I give it a chance, or should I return it now and try a harness??

New Halti.....

Lexi's biggest problem is when I take her on walks or out to potty she pulls me, ESPECIALLY when it's first thing in the morning or when I get home from work. I bought a Halti to help with this.....I heard about the gentle Leaders and was going to get one of those, but the guy at PetCo said he had h...
