"You dog is naturally active early morning and night time they are the opposite of us., that genetics. She's also just hitting adolescent. To much walking can be too much for a young pup. She may be overtired and gets stroppy. Dogs do not try to…"

"Harley sounds remarkably like our 9 month old Misty. She too loves our total attention, which is not possible all the time as we have 3 boys too. As she is number 17 we are completely gobsmacked that she has become numero uno in the household. She…"

"Please remember if they're anything like our Molly...if you do something with them once and they like it ...it's now part of their routine that they will beg you to do again. (We had one that thought being squirted with water was jolly fun)"

"Yes no, I know.. She is probably worse the days I/we don't get to do things like "normal" with fewer or shorter walks for various reasons. So yes, that will be taken into consideration ;) It's all about balancing etc But I will…"

"Water pistol it is then - seems to have worked for many! We use time outs as well and ignoring but it's a time thing I guess, will have to continue for a while before it actually works. But we will try the water thing! Ha! Thank you, Bering a…"
