    Do you enjoy watching It's Me Or the Dog?

    I love watching it and learning new ways to train a dog. I managed to get Lady to stop attacking the lounge door whenever someone knocks or rings the front door just by using one of Victoria Steelwell's commands (not sure if I spelt her surname correctly). What is your opinion on the series?
  15. Crazy Dog Man
