Questions and Answers from Dr Bone

Dr. Bone offering tips on some of the most common dog behavior problems.

Dr Bone, Why does my dog keeps peeing in house? How do I get her to pee outside? -Gladys

Dr. Bone: Gladys, she is probably still getting used to living at home with you! She also may lack the freedom that a pet door provides. Consider if you had to be shut in the living room all day, with nowhere to go pee! A personal dog door is how to stop a dog from peeing the house.

Dr Bone, my dog Rusty bit my boyfriend. Should I have him put down? -Betsy

Dr. Bone: Betsy, yes! Have your boyfriend put down as quickly as you can!  Rusty is trying to tell you something! But, in all seriousness, no! Most of the time, bites are a sign that your dog has too much energy. High energy dogs need lots of outside play; take him to the dog park and tire him out!

Dr. Bone, how do I stop my puppy peeing in house? -April

Dr. Bone: April, just like human babies, dog babies have to learn to be potty trained! It isn't a real problem unless they are scared or showing anxiety. Keep training them to go out the door and reward them for peeing outside and soon enough, they'll be potty trained in no time!

Dr. Bone, I recently adopted a Husky, and he's been tearing up everything in the house! Do you have any tips for high energy dogs? -Nicholas

Dr. Bone: Nicholas, yes I do! The first would be to research before adopting! Some dog breeds require lots of exercise and have lots of energy. Huskies are some of the most energetic dogs I know! Take them for multiple walks a day, take them running, and give them access to the outdoors via a pet door!

Dr Bone, I want to get a dog but my wife thinks we should get a cat. What do you think? -Don

Dr. Bone: Don, do you want to know what cats are good for? Lunch! But that's just my opinion. Check out this post to determine if you're a cat person or a dog person. When in doubt, compromise and get both!
