Ferrets can be VERY difficult to litter train. Really, what you're teaching them is to prefer a certain substrate, or interrupting where they go. As far as I've found, you can't teach a ferret to...

I have to say that made me laugh. I've got a little boy dog and used to have a wire crate. Imagine my surprise when I come home from a long shift at work and find pee all AROUND the crate, and none...

I've also got my pets pictures up. I have a changing background through all of my pets, and there are two that are captioned. RIP Po, and RIP Boo. They'll be forever missed.

Soon enough, we'll get...

Teenage rebellion. She's trying to see what will get her her way. She's also hyper-energised. Even if she goes nowhere, running back and forth at high speed and gnawing on you is super-fun and is...

Echoing a resounding yes, you're expecting too much too soon. My pup is 5.5 months old and I still expect accidents out of her. I find it so, so detrimental to dogs to believe that they should learn...

Oh, this too. I don't know how to quote, but he may need meds to control the ADHD, if he has it. Or even to just calm him down if he's secretly not a confident dog, and actually very anxious, and the...

I noticed you mentioned problems with clicker-training. I can say that it is, 99%, the (almost) best way to train a dog to listen, make good choices, and be confident. Not that Rexx seems to need...

Well, I... Tentatively, seem to have resolved the issue.

Since adding the teaspoon of pumpkin to 1/3 cup Taste of the Wild breakfast at 7AM, J's been pooping every chance he gets... Outside! He...

The issues started well before Gypsy arrived- in May, she joined the family in early August. Regardless, he LOVES her. I have never seen two dogs get along quite so well. She's annoying the heck out...

It may be worth trying, but I'm wary. J doesn't have anal gland issues, but he does have allergies. I don't know if psyllium might trigger a reaction in him, or how bad it would be.

All I can think to suggest to you is some tough love. It's the step I'm on, I guess the one just before the crying hysterically on the front porch that you're doing. My two year old male Pom won't...

A story of Po - Warning: Tragic, but a necessary message.

We had one cat, then we had three. Our tom was a humper. He liked to hump my dog more than my dog would hump him, so we decided we'd take introductions to our female cats slowly.

Well, we finally...
