    I have a very cute Jack Russell terrier and he is very cute. His name is Tycin. He is 5 years old and I must say that he is very attractive but usually the problem which I face is this that he digs holes a lot. He has digges so many holes nearby our place which is very much unacceptable. So, guys I need some suggestions regarding this. I really want to stop him but he never listen.

    My Winston had this problem too. I found that he refused to go when he was hooked to his leash, but once I took it off he went just fine. I know that removing the leash could be an issue for some with leash laws and such but just thought I'd share our success story if it may help! :-)

    I rescued a chug puppy from going to the pound a week before this pass christmas. His former owner soon contacted me through her uncle, (my long time friend) wanting hm back. Her uncle was asked to take him to the pound for her, but came by my house on the way. He mention he was on his way to take his neice dog to the pound, that looked sorta like one of my dogs. I told him to bringg him to me, since he said he was a great dog. I am so glad I did, he if a beautiful and smart dog. His house manners needed work, but by using my old dog cage as a training tool, he quick corrected hs house manners. Mostly because he hated to be seperated from my dachshund. Lol. He just loves him and has come to love my maltese shih tzu mix as well. He loves to play with stuff toys and balls, something my other dogs no longer care to do. My advice is to get a training cage to discipline him when he mess in the house or refuse to go out, until he gives in to tge process. He will, trust me. But, only leave him in the cage for 15 minutes or so before you take him out to try again and again until he gets on board. Do not accept him going in the cage, he must be taught thats part of the house as well and off limit for bathroom breaks. Set up a time tontake him out every four hours if possible at the sametime, if possible. A set schedule will teach him how long he has to the next walk. At some point he will alert you when he wants to go, you must get up and take him asap. Until the house manners has been learned, keeping him in the he cage at when you are away and at night will help him adjust to a schedule. Also, putting his scent on his toys will encourage him to play with them instead of your things, as well as giving him rawhides or those plastic chew toys to chew on when needed. Goodluck and be patient but consistent with him. After all they are like raising children. Always need attention. Lol

    I named my rescue Winston also, after he would not take commands from me by his previous owner's given name. Once I changed his name he took to retraining by me very quickly. Please see my training advice in using a wire training cage. To prevent constant damage to your home, until he understands that he will not be put in it if he don't go inside. If, be does into the cage he should go til his next walk. If, he refuse to go, back in the cage he should go til he does go outside. Praise him and do not put him in the cage, unless its bedtime or you are leaving home. The cage is part of the house, so don't accept him going inside the cage either. You must give the act a name for him to associate with, I use "nasty". Lol If, I say who did nasty in house "the guilty one runs for cover". Lol I bring him to the scene of the crime and say "(dog's name), no nasty in the house!!" And take him outside, or put him into the training cage until its time for the next walk (if its close to going within a hour or so). They will hate being in the cage, its like putting a misbehaving child in time out. Never abuse the time in the training cage and only use it fir training and/or when you are away from home. Also, for bedtime doing training. Immediately upon returning home or waking up the dog should be let out of the cage and taken out to potty! Once he knows that will akways happen he will adjust to being caged and to holding his nasty til he is walked. Which will eventually translate to holding it for all his walks, as long as they are frequent enough and consistant. He wants to please you and receive your praise. Goodluck. Only took two weeks to retrain my chug to my home schedule. They are very smart dogs.

Hi, I have a 2 year old chug who will not wee or poo outside especially when it's wet. I take him out all the time and still nothing. When it's dry he sometimes goes out by himself so I know that he knows what to do he's just lazy at times. He wees up the table and I've tried putting vinegar up it which is meant to make them not ewe there again but still no joy. When I take him outside when it's wet he just stands there and shivers!? Help he is wrecking my house!!

    Hi, as I suggested above, using a training cage works wonders. If he refuse to go out or go out and refuse to go, put him in the cage. Also, give the act a name, I call it "nasty", which covers both pee pee and poop. I have trained many dogs, my own and other people's. Example: "(his name), no nazty in the house!! (the cage is also referred to as tge house)" This is once you take him to the pee or poop make him smell it and give him the command, immediately take him outside and make him smell the ground and tell him to do his nasty. As he moves around keep telling him to do hus nasty. It, he don't do anything, put him in the cage until you are ready to walk him again. Repeat this step until he goes. Take him over to the spot and praise him, by saying something like "good boy/girl (dog name), you dud your nasty good boy/girl!!" Only use that praise term for training until the dog understands what you want. The dog will soon long for that praise and will do whats needed to earn it, after all pleasing you is its goal. Lol Am so, use a command for scorning as well, using the same technique of returning him to the scene of the crime to ensure he understands what he did wrong. Association and then comnand is they connect the dots in training. Never reward them with food for this type training, a belly rub, hug or praise will be enough. Treats I feel should be given as a occasional treat, not for praise for training. My opinion. Good luck.

I am looking to purchase or adopt a very young pom so that it can get used to my family and myself as it grows. I would like one closer to where I live, which is Waverly, TN. I am on a fixed income so cost is a concern, but this would be mostly for my companionship and travel buddy. I would prefer a female as I have a male dog already and he is not crazy about the male cats next door or male dogs that have visited. I thought I had one, but turned out to be a scam. Only serious sellers/adoptions contact please.

I used to have a Japanese Akita named Sato Kuma, meaning 'sugar bear'. She wasn't full akita. Sato was an akita/lab mix. Her mother,Sky, was a Japanese Akita. When Sato was about six a mutt jumped our fence and the fence surrounding Sato's dog-run and got her pregnant. My mom came out and caught him and called animal control. We placed all the pups except the smallest one, a male we called Kuma San, or 'little bear'. We only kept him because the girl who had owned Sato's mother wanted a direct descendant out of Sky. Well at the we were living in Denver and were in the process of moving. So we boarded Sato and Kuma at a friend's. We specifically said do not remove Sato's collar and keep the gate closed at all times. She didn't do either of those things. I think she was stolen. Normally Sato wouldnt follow anyone other than her people. She would,however, follow her puppy anywhere. I'm gonna try to get another Japanese Akita and name it Sato Kuma the second.
