  1. My dog has anxiety and hates the car, barking uncontrollably and on occasion vomits. She crated comfortably (water,sleeping cushion and a small toy or bully stick) and have tried a pet booster seat and holding her. She’s a puller on the leash and a chewer, other than that is perfect. The Canine Center where she had basic training is closed due to covid. She’s just 1yr. and yes,spoilt yorkie!

  2. Our little mongrel ( mix of chihuahua, maltese and daxie) is the most delightful bitch but she will not answer to her name. We’re elderly and may have spoilt her a bit. How do we start training her? She’s eight months old.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
