  1. How to deal with my dog's sudden anxiety?

    Dog Training and Behavior

    I've got a problem and I hope you can all help! We adopted two dogs just before Christmas - two spaniels of 9 and 4. The 9 year old has fitted in perfectly, is well trained, will sit for treats and when told, will go in her basket when told and so on. She plays ball and has recently discovered...
