When we drop (our dog) off at daycare, he is showing separation anxiety. He tries doing these little nips at the staff when they put him in the runs in the beginning of the day. Should we nix daycare?
My pup used to break out of the crate. I've now made that not possible, but he now is tearing up blankets and barking loudly. Would a muzzle help?

My young dog has an uncontrollable urge to escape my yard, is this because he isn’t neutered?

Our 6 month old lab goes into stress mode when we leave her, what should we do?
