Help, Behaviour Problems


Q: Help, Behaviour Problems PetPlanet Talk Adminstrator PPAdmin pettalk@petplanet.co.uk I have three dogs the oldest one is a Jack Russell and whenever he sees another dog he jumps and yelps and whines until he can no longer see the dog what can I do about this. My youngest dog is now 15 months old but whatever we do to stop her going to the toilet in the middle of the night is just not working. We have tried spray and late walks please help

A:Help, Behaviour Problems PetPlanet Talk Adminstrator PPAdmin pettalk@petplanet.co.uk I think with dog behavioural problems, the very best advice is to get expert help from a behaviouralist, who can go into the cases in detail to find out exactly what is going on and what to do about it. Often inappropriate measures can make the situation worse! In general terms, you need to get your older dog used to seeing/meeting other dogs in controlled situations until this extreme behaviour is no longer the result. Exactly how you do this depends on whether he is trying to be extra friendly and seeking to play, or whether he wants to be aggressive, or is in fact afraid of the
other dogs. Similarly, the toiletting problem could be addressed by using a
puppy crate during the night so that your dog can't move away from her "bed" to toilet (as they usually won't soil their own bed), but you need to be sure that there isn't any underlying problem causing this. In both cases I would seek help from your own vet. Sarah Mark MRCVS (Vet for PetPlanet)
