Re: Extreme Behavior Change after Spay

"The last two videos are me talking to ease her" This statement in the text pretty much sums it up. From what little info posted so far I'm going to guess that the bigger fuss the dog puts up, the bigger deal they make out of the situation? From my understanding it is with the behaviorist...

Re: Extreme Behavior Change after Spay

Actually, they have talked to me and told me that they DO talk to her on a daily basis just like pictured in the video. If they don't talk to her, her aggression gets worse. They are currently working with a behaviorist but I'm not quite sure on the woman's credentials.

Re: Extreme Behavior Change after Spay

I had their verbal consent, but I'll be writing them back tonight to get a formal and written consent. Since my internet connection is spotty, it's taking me well over an hour to download each and every video, however I have gotten past the first two. One, I'm noticing them talking to her an antagon...

Extreme Behavior Change after Spay

Hey guys! I had a couple questions about a lab mix in one of my classes. She is a very sweet girl, about 7 months old, give or take a few weeks. When she first started my classes, she was the most quiet and sweet dog I had ever seen. She was eager to please, extremely attentive and and very responsi...

Re: Won't potty away from the house

I'm interested in this as well . . Maybelle refuses to pee outside of our backyard, regardless for how long we're out.

Re: Parvo questions

Thanks for the replies everyone!

I've done all that I can so far :( It's against policy to clean with anything other than PetSmart approved cleaners. All I can do is hope for the best for the pup and keep my ears pealed for any other puppies that may be sick.

Re: Parvo questions

I told the Pet Parents in the class that the puppy was in, and one Pet Parent was unfortunately irate at me for allowing a sick dog in class. I tried to explain to her that no one could have known and I'm not allowed to deny a seemingly healthy puppy in class. I will be calling the other Pet Parents...

Parvo questions

I'm a dog trainer at PetSmart and received a phone call from one of the dogs in my puppy classes. The puppy was in class last week but would be missing this class because of Parvo. Evidently the puppy was feeling better, however it was still being treated. The puppy was in class last week, and the o...

Re: Stop standing on my foot!

In my training classes, I have a few dogs that like to sit on my feet. I find it more of a reassurance thing more then anything else, I don't see dominance in their body language at all. It happens more often when we're introducing something new or working out in the store during peak hours.

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

What I don't understand is how you can choose a guy you've known for so little time over the dogs you who've loved and cared for. I'm using loved loosely. Regardless of the situations I have found myself in, my dogs have been there for me through thick and thin. At the end of the day, I know I can c...

Re: Favorite tickle spot- but is the reaction normal?

Both Maybelle and Cody do it, it's more pronounced when Cody does it. I think it's adorable.

Re: Dirty Petco?

It depends on the Store Manager, Management team and the employees. If the management team does not hold the employees up to standards, the store will fail as fair as cleanliness and organization. However, the moth issue may not be the stores fault. My PetSmart is currently infested with the moths d...
