Re: Housebreaking problems

have you tried the whole catching him in the act and carrying him outside? does he have problems with where he is sleeping? is he sleeping in a crate? I hate putting The General in the crate at night she looks so sad but then I know she wont pee/poo/bite an electrical cord in there and will be safe,...

Re: Important simple question. Need help asap

I have this too, if I pick the wrong time of day to walk The General, it hugely impacts our ability to have fun while walking.

Re: my puppy is clingy and doesnt wanna be left alone

Excersise shouldn't be a problem, well it might right now but not much. I play with The General all the time, tossing balls down the hallway, tug-o-war, we get at least a walk lasting about 20 mins and a short 5 minutes of running each day (I used to be in the military and she can already run at abo...

my puppy is clingy and doesnt wanna be left alone

The General feels the need to be by me or at least in the same room as me all the time. The only exception is if someone is playing with her or she wonders off by herself (ive recently started feeding her in her "room"). If there is a barrier between us she will whine. and when I goto work...
