    I'm agreeing with the others who said a full refund is in order in this case. Even a very laid back lab pup might be too much for a 75 yr. Old and her 90 yr. Old husband. If their daughter does give...

    Personally, I feel that the day to day issues of a girl dressing and acting like a boy (and vice versa) would perhaps be more confusing to a 6 yr. Old girl than the bathroom issue in that age group. ...

    In addition to others great advice, I would second the advice about obedience training for both the dog and yourself. I'm also wondering if you're not properly using the prong collar. Look at...

    yes, we did this from the moment we brought him home. It's always been 1 toy at a time, and we put all others out of reach. We taught him the "drop it" command early on as well so he learned to...

    I don't fault the children. They were being obedient and doing what their parents told them to do for a picture. If they were older, I might expect the kids to have really looked at the statue and...
