DH doesn't allow pets in the bedroom- if it was just up to me I probably would sleep with the dogs- when he was in the hospital I had the dogs in bed with me My oldest daughter has 2 beds in her room and sometimes the dogs will go on the spare bed- but they aren't allowed in bed with the kids either

I'm looking for a good trainer in CT

I would like to find a trainer for obedience and behavior in Connecticut who is experienced with pit bulls

I need some guidance with Ruthie- she is not as food motivated as Jack and I need some help in the best way to work with her-

THanks for any recommendations
