    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello. I have a three-year old unfettered male collie named Winston. He suffers from separation anxiety issues in general (when the family is away from home).

  3. NEED HELP - deaf adult dog with night anxiety

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My 5 year old white boxer is a piece of work. I got her when she was 2 years old and she has been a bundle of anxiety problems. She was obviously abused and is easily startled.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi guys :) I've had my puggle Tegan for about 3 months, so she's all settled in and everything. The SPCA and vet both said she's likely around a year old. Each night we let her out to do her business before we go to bed, but she always wakes us up at least twice a night to do a pee or poop...
