Keeping me up at night!
My 1 1/2 yr. old, 5 lb., Yorkie has recently decided to wake me up at 12:30pm, and sometimes 3:30 pm to go outside to potty. No eating habits were changed, no sleeping arrangements are different. She sleeps in bed with us, has since a pup. Never been crate trained (my mistake). She stands at the end of the bed & barks until I wake up and take her downstairs (nearly killing myself sound asleep).
I let her outside, she does her business, we go back to bed, or I sleep on the couch too tired to go upstairs with her knowing she may wake me up again at 3:30 for same routine!
Help! She is too tiny to be a "garage" dog sleeper, can't stay outside alone (dangerous with owls & coyotes), and will bark all night in the crate.
Her old self was fine, went to bed with me, slept until 5:30am, then we get up for the day, WHAT HAPPENED!
Deprived sleep yorkie princess lover!
Labrador good with kids?

Cat aggression in kitten toward cat
I'm reading many of the articles online as far as what to do if you have cat fighting - aggression with cats. My Cat (Lacey) is about 4 years old and my kitten in about 6 months old. My kitten (Emmy) is the one who is attacking the older cat. I have used seperation and a squirt bottle. None of which seems to work. I let the kitten out of the bedroom after a time out and she goes right back to attacking Lacey. The spray bottle does not really work at all. The one thing I have not done yet is spay the kitten. I'm hoping that will have a positive result but beings the behavior has already developed, I'm wondering if this will really help. I'm wondering if catnip will help and if so is it safe the give to the kitten. I'm open to just about any other suggestions.
Dog eats everything he can
I have a black labrador, and as many people know, the labrador lives and dies by his next meal. What I am looking for is help on how to train him not to eat everything. I live in a city and as you can imagine having a dog that thinks every thing on the ground is food, can not only be frusterating, but also scary when he eats some disgusting things that one could find on the street. Can anyone help let me know if there is a goog trainning method I can try?
My dog never barks!
Has anyone heard of a dog that never barks? I am concerned he might be mute, and was wondering if there was a type of test out there to prove if he is just really quiet or actually mute?
