I walk my dogs when Im there. When Im not they’re potty trained to use the pads -but like I said she’s been on her period/been sick so she’s been missing and have had diarrhea on the pads. Though this morning there wasn’t any. I also have a menstration diaper for her. But that was dirty and I didn’t have time to clean it. Crate training wouldn’t work well with my beagle. She howls like crazy if she’s in a cage. My last apartment made me put a muzzle on her if she was in a cage cause she had 6 of my neighbors complain. Though I have toyed with the idea of bark softening/removal. The ethics of it have put me off, though.

Doesn’t it create liability on the apartments end though? The rest I guess you’re right.

Give your dog to your parents or a friend before you get half of her throat removed. A better option would be a bark collar (it pings a high pitched sound when she barks, causing discomfort to her ears and discouraging barking; significantly more humane than removing her voice box).


No more than a normal employee does. 

I’ve thought about trading my beagle for my moms mini poodle (who is potty trained and doesn’t bark) for a for months until she can be properly trained. Though I have considered getting a bark collar. But my gf is under the impression it physically hurts the dog so she’s pretty against it >~>
