Re: Dogs behaviour on our bed hindering our relationship..

just to add, could yoy crate train her, so that she sleeps in her crate next to your bed rather than in it? if she is in a crate she can still be sleeping in your room next to your bed, but without being in your bed. it will also give her a 'safe place' to go if she wants. http://www.google.co.uk/i...

Re: New dog...

agin, playin gwith toys will happen gradually as he settles in. Use tasty treats which should be meat based, such as chopped hot dog, chicken, ham, etc. Cheese is aso a good treat. chop treats to about the size of your fingernail

Re: New dog...

dont panic, youve only just got him, he'll settle in his own time, lots of dogs display seperation symptoms until their settled which can take any time between 2 weeks and 3 months
