If you decide to ask a question to our dog trainer or behaviourist, describe the problem in a similar way as in the example below:

During walks my dog pulls on the leash terribly. At times, it seems as if he’s walking us, not we him. We live in Krakow, in a block of flats on the third floor (no lift) in a quiet district. We have a 4-year-old daughter. We walk our dog regularly, at more or less the same hours. The morning walk is the shortest, the afternoon one lasts about an hour and that’s when we always go to a park, where the dog has a chance to run. The last, evening walk, is longer than the first one but shorter that the second one. Our dog is a mixed breed male, and weighs approx. 20 kg. At the moment, he’s almost 3 years old. He’s been with us since he was a small puppy. He’s fed twice a day, dry quality dog food, in amounts recommended by the manufacturer. During walks we use an automatic leash and the dog wears a harness. I would appreciate if you could explain the reasons for my dog’s pulling and point out a remedy for the problem. It’s the only problem we’re experiencing with him; otherwise, he’s a perfect dog. I’m looking forward to your answer. Kamil

If you decide to ask a question to our vet, describe the problem in a way similar to that in the example below:

For six months I have been a lucky owner of a mixed breed she dog, adopted from a shelter. At the moment, Sonia is 11 months old. A few days ago we went to the lakeshore. It was sunny and quite hot. Sonia loves water and she spent most of the time swimming and diving. After several hours on the beach we went back to Krakow by car. A couple of days later I noticed that Sonia started shaking her head and avoids my touching her around the ears. I’m wondering whether she hasn’t got some kind of inflammation. Is it possible to cure her at home or should I visit a vet? Maybe I should wait a couple of days to see if the symptoms do not go way? My second question is connected with sterilization. What’s the best age for a female dog to have the procedure? Should I wait until she recovers from her ear condition first? I have heard that before neutering a female should have at least one litter of puppies. Is it true? I would appreciate a quick answer. Justyna
