Dear Dr Harry,
Please help. I adopted a beautiful ex racing greyhound who I've had a number of months now, and he's my best pal. But after trying absolutely every trick I have read of, I can not get him into my car. Anything that involves having to jump up (couch, car etc) he will get so nervous and even shriek. I'd love to drive him to a nearby open field to let him run full pelt- but so far it just can't happen. Please. He's a great dog and I need help.

Hey Dr Harry,
I have one male and one female Dachshund. George who is one has a serious barking problem as well as destroying the house by chewing on walls, furniture and wooden detailing. Kahlua who is 6 months old is now following in his footsteps. We live in an apartment and have tried barking collars but even with the collar he continues to bark 10+times per incident. He just can't help himself ! Please give us some advise as we don't want to have complaints from our neighbours. Thank you !

Hi dr Harry,
I have a 3 year old staffy who oddly has developed a fixation on shadows and reflected light... she will stare at walls, the roof, the floor for ages and at times tries to grab the shadows or light and thus hits her head. She is very determined/ obsessed with it and hasn't responded to attempts to get her to move on from it. It does make her seem a little crazy - in the human sense. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have a 2-year-old miniature fox terrier and she will bark at every single dog she sees. Its hard to control and I've tried so many different things to stop her. no matter what even if the dog doesn't see her, even if its 50 meters away my dog Princess will bark uncontrollably at it and one time she lunged and almost bit a poor dogs face while on a walk. Princess such a caring, beautiful girl until she sees another dog. The other day I was at a cafe with Princess and my friends. She was sitting quietly until another dog came and she went ballistic at it and the whole situation was highly embarrassing. Please help me fix this I would love to take her on walks and out 'round town with me without all the hassle and embarrassment.

Hi Dr Harry- I need some help, we got a rescue kitten 12 mths ago and she has fit into our family perfectly however if she doesn’t her her own way immediately she pees somewhere or runs across our bed and sprays. E.g in the morning if she starts meowing and we don’t get up to feed her she pees. We started putting her outside whe
n she starts meowing and don’t feed her till we’re ready and that stopped it for a while but now if we don’t jump she just pees. At night if we don’t feed her by 6 she will run across our bed and spray. We made her stay outside for two nights which she hated and it seems to just make her more !

Hi Dr Harry, We have a nine year old Jack Russell/Poodle. He has lived in the country all his life and now we are moving to the Gold Coast. Problem is, he won't walk on a pavement, having been used to grass and dirt. He lies down and refuses to walk. How do you think we can get over this very real problem?? Thanks, Juliet

Hi! Loved the last episode and how you helped Ben and his mum. Very nice to see. Can you tell us where the green 'ball' seat can be purchased? Thanks!
