Re: Pack problem... Non chow

Well, it sounds like you are really stressed out, feeling hopeless and possibly angry about where you are at right now. I do sympathise and as I only have /had one dog I can't be of much help I'm afraid. It's also possible your stress may be passed on to your dogs thereby forming a vicious circle of...
