Re: How do you say sorry?

Sometimes things happen like I will accidently step onto a tail or a toe - I apologise like I would to a human. "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see you, are you okay? I'm so sorry". They obvisouly don't understand the words, but I agree with Emma, I think they do get some sentiment out of it (maybe by our ...

Re: Dog neurotic about peeing outside

I hope your GSD is okay? Please keep us updated on how it goes with your Kelpie - and ask again when questions arise :wink: Just something else I forgot to say - when she does have an accident in the house (no matter what the reason) never ever scold her or tell her off. In fact - don't even clean i...

Re: Possessive of People?

Not sure if I understand you correct, but -
Can you pick up the toys, and only let them have toys when they are in different rooms or seperated by a babygate?

Re: SEPARATION ANXIETY UPDATE!!

I'll try to help :? I *think* in an ideal world it would be best not to leave him untill his sep anx is fixed - but, unfortunatelly that is not realistic for most of us :wink: Is there any way that you can ask/pay/bribe someone to come and stay with him while you leave or leave him at someone else w...

Re: Another Newbie!

Hi Laura

Welcome to the forums :D

Yes, children (and adults) are not educated as to how dogs communicate (growling, lip licking, body language) so I think it's absolutely wonderful that you do what you do :D

Re: She got into the apple pie!

I'm sure there are ingredients in apple pie that aren't exaclty very good for dogs - but if she didn't eat too much of the pie I wouldn't be worried :wink: (she doesn't have any severe allergies, does she?)

Re: She got into the apple pie!

:lol: Sorry I'm laughing, but it's really funny!

I'm not really bothered by germs and whatnot, so depending on the damage I'll just cut off some of the pieces to try & make it look pretty again.

Re: Dog neurotic about peeing outside

It's normal for dogs to mark on walks - it's what they do. :wink: But scent marking inside your home usually means stress / fear / insecurity. Clicker training is a great way to build their confidence , have a wonderful relationship with your dogs, doesn't take much time, tires them out mentally and...

Re: Afraid of Dad

English is not my fisrt language, so I'm not sure whether it's homeopthic? :?

But it's not a drug, it's 100% natural, and it contains some of the bach flower remedies. It's suitable for humans and dogs.

Keep us updated on how it goes with Abbey and dad :D
