    Okay, so my 1000 year old cat has started focusing all of his attention on this one particular spot on his side. He's licking and licking and licking away at it. The skin area is fine--it's not...

    I don't think so, to be honest. You should always train your dog, but it doesn't (always) require spending big bucks on books.

    Training a dog really is not that difficult a thing to do. SO many...

    That is unfortunate Sue. Sounds like a serious behavioral problem with your little one.

    For mine, it's different because she doesn't realize she's even doing it. She has absolutely no control...

    You do build a bond. It's really hard on us too because the officers who go out and pick up the dogs are also the ones who care for them the time they are in our shelter and they are also the ones...

    That's probably another thing that will be different for everyone too.

    Personally I think "off" is always an important one, especially for larger breed dogs. It saves from having to walk across the room to redirect him or her. DON'T do what many people do and train...
