If you are noticing the above-mentioned behaviors it's time to reassess your position in the pack. Be firm but compassionate and show Fido that he is not a decision-maker. If he is on the furniture and shows possessiveness, place a lead around his neck... Read more →

Dawn O Watson/CNBNews Contributor Whether you’ve had your dog for a long time or he’s a recent addition the new year can bring about some wonderful changes in attitude and behavior for your entire family!

That is, you are treating your pet as though he were a human with all... Read more →
