Question by RoZeVe: How to house train my puppy with a not house trained dog already at home?
OK so I am getting a puppy! We already have a dog in the house, though he is not mine he is my roommate’s. My roommate although has not stepped up to the plate on disciplining his almost year old dog, which has troubled my boyfriend and me. I had offered to help train him but, “its his dog!” I respected that but now with a puppy in the way I am worried. I know how to house train a puppy (had experience with my best friend’s puppies with success) but would be greatly disappointed if my roommate’s dog’s lack of house training would disrupt my puppies learning process. Yes his dog is always outside in the kennel while he’s at work (which I find kind of sad) But again no house training.

So in conclusion, will it be a problem? Will my puppy pick up on my roommate’s dog’s bad habits (howling, barking, chewing property, peeing/pooping in the house…etc.)? What should I do?

I see no other way than to train them both at the same time. It will be difficult if not impossible to train one & expect it won’t pick up the others bad habits. Your roommate seems a bit coo-coo??

Q&A: What are good toys to keep dogs occupied?

Question by Layla: What are good toys to keep dogs occupied?
I have a very active 10 month old American Bulldog. When we are home we take her out for walks, dog park, and so on. But when we are at work she is in her crate because I just got her a couple days ago and we are still working on her relationship with the cat and the furniture. I have read that I should give her some “smart toys” to play with that will keep her occupied while we are away, but what kind of toys are considered “smart toys”?

Kongs are the best toy for that, hard to destroy and you can stuff them full of food and keep them busy for hours.
