Q&A: My Dog Is A Rebel

| Filed under: Q&ATrainingDogDr. Patrick Mahaney

Many of us have some problem areas when it comes to our dogs' training — but this woman has got it bad.

TeddyHilton.com reader, Petra, wrote to Dr. Patrick Mahaney and said:

My dog is probably the worst ever!!!!!!! She never goes on any walks. If she HAS to come I have to pull her out the front door. When my son forgets to clean the table she pushes the chair out and eats every last bit of food. She also bites my hand off if i have treats in it by jumping up and grabbing my hand. The last problem is she barks at everything! The worst part is 85 precent of the time she barks at NOTHING!! Please tell me what to do with my dog, Leila.

P.S. Help soon she is influencing my dog Loki who is beginning to pick up her bad habits.

Best Wishes,
Petra

Good thing we have Dr. Patrick to respond:

Q&A: How To Get My Anxious Dog To The Vet

| Filed under: Q&APetsDogDr. Patrick Mahaney

Looks like a case of SEVERE white coat syndrome!

The veterinarian can be a dog's friend or a dog's enemy in their mind.

And this Teddyhilton.com reader's pooch DOES NOT LIKE THE VET!

She writes:

I am a huge fan of yours! and I love your tips!

I had a question regarding my dog, she is 12, turning 13 this year. And I am constantly worried about her health and I try giving her as much exercise as I can but it is time for her vet check up and ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE HER.

My dog has extreme anxiety ever since she was a puppy and she even gets seizures when she gets so anxious. We got her tested to see if she had epilepsy or a tumor and everything came up clear. So when it comes to take her to the vet she goes insane and even bit the vet, and the vet hates us because he cant cut her nails and do the proper procedures needed.

How can I take her to the vet without having to medicate her and her anxiety levels to go up and cause a seizure?

As always, Dr. Patrick is here to save the day for this pups anxiety!
