If they don't, they wait till dinner (or breakfast whichever is next). It can take a week or two to get a ver...

it really sounds to me like you have scolded him so many times for going in the house he is now afraid of going outside BECAUSE you are on the other end of the leash and thinks that is what he was gettin trouble about. Try getting a longer leash so he can feel like hes sortof away from you to go , w...

I'm sorry for the decision that you have to make.... I'm not sure in the same situation I could make the same decision, I'm probably going to get flamed for this. To me it really just depends on the situation. Being that she is only this way with this little boy - with good reason. I don't feel tha...

I'm so sorry for what your feeling right now. It is quite a situation to be in but your honest and clear outlook about the situation is good for you and your family. Unfortuantely your poor girl really felt that what she was doing was warranted and justified. It is sad that in her mind her actions ...

I am so very sorry this happened. There really is no way for probably most of us to really help you in this time as we dont know you , the dog, or the situation surrounding you on a daily or every day basis. I know I hold my foster dogs to a one bite is too many rule.. As do most pit bull owners. (...
