  1. Hi imashortie02, very glad to hear you enjoyed it. My health is great at
    the moment. I’m in remission and have a 50/50 chance at long term survival
    now. 🙂

  2. This was really helpful! We’ll definitely be fixing some of our mistakes
    with house training our new puppy!

  3. Ok so i got a puppy few days ago for my b-day and she is so cute and
    playful, but the only problem is she is constantly peeing and pooping
    throughout the apartment. I’ve set up newspapers for her but she just
    doesn’t get it that she need to pee there and not on the carpet or on the
    tiles and im starting to get a bit frustrated. Oh and yes i forgot to
    mention she is 7 weeks old and she doesn’t pee in the same place twice.
    Please help! Thnx

  4. Our ‘puppy’ is 14 months old and still goes at random in our apartment! We
    take her out 3-4 times in the evening, but she still goes in the apartment.
    When it happens, we take her immediately out, even if she is still
    physically peeing as we carry her. How do we get her to ‘tell’ us that she
    needs to go!?

  5. yes i know all of that but she is a rescue, she didn’t had a mum to take
    care for her, cuz she and her 3 sisters was left by the “owners” of her mom
    beside a dumpster when they were only 3 days old. So she was rescued and
    putted on adoption when she was 7 weeks old. But i have to say that now she
    is a perfect pup, i got her potty pads and she did great with them, and now
    when she is older she pees outside only 😀

  8. I have a puppy pad for my puppy and he only went on it once! He goes on the
    rug and when it’s time to for his break I place him on the puppy pad and he
    just walks off it and goes on the rug! Can you please help? :/

  9. When my puppy eats and drinks i put him on a pad but he just walks off and
    lays down so i leave when i come back he used

  10. Listen to my story., I was so happy when I found onlinedogtraining.us – i
    found my dogs behaviour drastically improved after i followed their program
    and couldn’t thank them more. Helped me in so many ways

  11. My dog ever since he was born he has been scared of hot air balloons he is
    12 now and still tries to fit under the bed when he sees one and if he
    hears a noise like it he runs and hides he isn’t scared of anything else
    except fire

  12. My puppy is 3 months old and he won’t pee but he keeps barking and sniffing
    everywhere.

  13. Our puppy is 6 months, she was diagnosed with separation anxiety. We had
    her finally she was however adopted for a week to someone else who returned
    her. She is very curious outside, we can take her out twice within 45 mins
    and then just go in the house. Same spot each time, I think it might be the
    the anxiety of going outside and being too involved of what the world has
    out there beyond the front door. How do we stop and get her to go back to
    outdoors. She will hit the door with her paw, but then just walks around
    and then comes back in and goes. It was poopy, and she did urinate outdoors
    but has reverted back to both. Please can you offer any advice she is
    getting older and this is just really hard on her and us. Thank you Annie

  14. ive got a question for you. Ive been training my puppy to pee outside for 2
    weeks now but she insists to still pee inside, ive told her she is a bad
    girl too pee outside and i take her directly outside and point to the
    ground telling her to pee outside when i catch her doing this but she still
    inststs to pee inside on the carpect. When i take her outdsde to pee when i
    catch her in the act when she pees outside i praise her. Then she comes in
    and 45 minutes later she pees on the carpet again. Im so fusterated with
    her and can use your guidence to help me so she over comes this.

  15. How long am I supposed to play with my dog? He is 2 years old and always
    sleeps during the day.

  16. I have a very big crate. One end has a potty tray, the other end has her
    bed. She uses the tray side to potty. What is your opinion on this? I don’t
    want to be doing the wrong thing. She has never made a mess in her bed.
