Q&A: How do I train my dog to not bark as much?

Question by sfowler0817: How do I train my dog to not bark as much?
I have a 3 year old Lhasa Apso who barks non stop! She barks whenever she hears someone outside, or someone other than myself or my mother comes in the door. And then she doesn’t stop barking until about 30 minutes after that person is still in the house. I have another dog who doesn’t do this, and I would think she would learn from him. I need her to learn its not ok to do this as I’m thinking of getting an apartment and that simply won’t work. Some people suggested a “bark collar” however I’m somewhat weary of them, I think they’re someone cruel. I need a safe yet effective way to get her to stop that won’t take years to correct. Help!

Question by Jaja: Question about my possibly pregnant Yorkshire Terrior (Yorkie)…?
We had a male Yorkie over on the week of May 14th to May 21st. Our female Yorkie is a regular sized Yorkie, and the male is a teacup. We are not positive that she is pregnant…and today she had a milky substance around her nipple, and we happened to look around and squeezed her nipple and more milk substance projected. She doesn’t look too pregnant but it is a possibility she could be having only one puppy. I am aware that there is the “false pregnancy” in dogs.
What are the chances of her actually being pregnant. If so she should be having the puppy(ies) this week if correct.
The vet is literally like a block from my house first of all,

SECOND of all, I do indeed have enough money for vet bills, I never said I didn’t.

And I didn’t say she was in labor right now, I just said there is a possibility.

And last, thanks to everyone that ACTUALLY ANSWERED THE QUESTION.
We are in fact taking her to the vet.

I have no idea what this is, but it looked cool and I didn’t see any big dogs guarding it. So why not take a picture?=)

And yes, if Sarah is reading this right now she is TOTALLY imagining it transforming. Only question really, does she see it as an Autobot or Decepticon. Parked near a war memorial just east of Mineral Wells on US 180.

Question by johanyjohn: Do you add eggshells for calcium only on raw meat or do you need to add it to cooked meat as well for dogs?
I am planning on giving my puppy “Innova Puppy Food” and supplementing it with “Missing Link.” I also on occassion would like to cook her some healthy homemade meals as well. Does the crushed eggshell powder only applies if you’re using raw meat or does it also apply for cooked meat as well? Thank you so much for your time and attention to this matter!
