    Housetraining
    I've always been a homemaker. I love taking care of anybody important to me. I decided a few weeks ago I wanted a dog although my fiance didn't really think it was a good idea.

  12. How to stop peeing and pooping at puppy play-time?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog is house trained in that she never goes inside (save for one accident in the middle of the night when I didn't heed her request to go outside). However, it seems she doesn't know she is "inside" when I take her to a weekly puppy play session at a nearby pet supply store. She'll play...

    Our black lab, Valor, will be 11 years old next month and about a month ago, he started pooping in the house.
