  1. New puppy and cat interactions

    Puppy Help
    Need some help! My fiancé and I just recently got a beautiful basset hound puppy named Tinkerbell. She really has been a pretty incredible puppy. Figured out the pee pads right away, sleeps through the night in her crate, doesn't bark much, and is as cute and loving as can be. We have 2 adult...
  2. IS it possible that my dog will never get used to the cats?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello all! I am new here. I just adopted a 2.5 year old shepherd mix (Belle) from one of my local animal shelters. She is very reactive about a few select things (mostly, other small animals), but is particularly reactive about cats. My family has two cats (ages 11 and 4). They have been around...

  6. Training Priorities and Feeling Overwhelmed

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello everyone! I just got my first dog as an adult after 4+ years of waiting (and reading every dog training book I could get my hand on, starting with The Other End of the Leash), and now I'm feeling a bit stressed and overwhelmed, mostly from my own expectations/perfectionist streak. My main...
