    Great blog. We must have more articles by the Kennel Biscuit. He’s a riot. And his indifference to some of the silly, non-functional dog training that often goes on in competition is right on.

    Have a pup who is beagle/shiba inu/hound/great pyranees and wow!!!!! Is she an energy ball! We need training asap-both of her owners are terrible dog trainers. She’s 13 weeks old, seems really smart, super sweet and a real handful. She’s going to be a decent size girl and can already lean onto counter and table tops. Bad!!! She’s partially house trained, recognizes “no” most of the time, comes about 65% of the time to command, and is starting to learn sit command. But we understand beagle and mixes can be a little difficult to train. Help!!!

    Hi. We have a 7 month old GSD name Hera. Two months ago we went through a horrible experience with our animals. We lost our home in a hurricane n were trapped inside with our pets. They lost their uard. She had never been tied up. For first month she was tied up. This last month we spent 2 weeks in a motel n now we are living in a condo. Hera is now acting like she never was housetrained and her manners well she is a mess. Do you offer any kinda of training that could help us? She needs a lot. Lol
