  1. I didn’t like the fact that Dillon the nervous Dalmatian was labelled a faker and was ‘working to a plan, a fiendish canine plan’!
    To me, that dog genuinely looked scared and I’m not sure dogs are capable of doing those things mentioned by the behaviourist.
    But that was the opinion of the behaviourist on the programme.

  2. Hi, just wondering which episode the tegu is on? We have 2 tegus so are interested to see what it’s pet shame is, and if it’s similar to the problem our male black and White has experienced?!!

  3. Hey Becky, the tegu episode is episode 5 (Aug 11th I think?), as well as Jasmine the ‘killer’ cat, George the food throwing parrot, Lexi the licking staff and an asbo alpaca. Hope you’re enjoying the show, and thanks for watching!! M.

  4. Hi,will you be having an item on how to stop a parrot or cockatoo from self mutilating.I have a male cockatoo that has got hardly any wing feathers left and looks positively “oven ready”.He is appr. 14 and has had more than one owner.

  5. Hi, i really wanted to contact you about my parrot but couldnt find any other way bar to post on here. I watched the Cockatoo episode to see if it would help but it didnt unfortunatly. I have an amazon who REALLY hates my partner – they used to be best friends but since he worked away for 6 weeks which was well over 2 years ago she hates him. I’m desperate for help as she will have batches of flying to attack him like she is at the moment and she means serious business. I would love for you to contact me so i go into things further with you – im in desperate means. Michelle

  9. I am wondering if you can help me with a cat problem I have. I couldn’t find any direct email for your program so came across this instead. I hope you get this and can give me any advice you may have. Our cat (1 of 3) refuses to use the litter tray. We have watched her and she goes to the tray/trays area but does her business outside the tray as it looks to us like she doesn’t want to put her paws in the tray. So she ends up most of the time weeing or pooing. Please help. She is an indoor cat most of the time. Has her own space in the house etc and never goes anywhere else than the tray area. So she knows where to go just won’t use the tray properly! Any ideas? Thanks.

  15. Hi marc i wanted 2 ask you is it normal for a dog to fart every ten minutes? cause my staff zues farts constuntly and its horriable! he also gets scared wen i put his arnest on or show him his meat he freeze’s? why do you think he does that?

  16. Hi Marc. I need help with my staffy cross. He is 12 months old and poos and wees every night. He has always done it. We have now got him clean during the day but not on a night. If it isnt a poo its a wee. More often than not both. He has a night light, he sleeps in the kitchen with my other staffy. I have changed his food, I have left music on, I have left lights on, we have let him out in the early hours – nothing is making any difference.
    Any suggestions so much appreciated. He is very skinny and very hyper active. He eats more than my other one but just doesnt put weight on

Although she is a bit of a porky saussage. eventhough her stools are not liquidy they are not all that solid either!

  26. I like your show very much! My dwarf hamster Sugar keeps biting, we’ve tried to train her, by giving her a treat and stroking her with clean hands, but its not really working. When we first had her, she was with another dwarf hamster, but we had to separate them as Sugar kept attacking the other one. We have tried to handle her slowly and carefully for the past 12months but nothing seems to work, please can you help? Thank you Karabella.

  27. hi, i own a Bull Mastiff, he was rescued at the age of 12months, he is now coming up to 3yrs old, he has been newted, i have worked very hard to train him in the 18months that i have owned him. we have two problems that we cannot overcome 1. he suffers with loose stools and really bad wind, it is so bad it causes pain to our noses! 2. if we talk to in a horible tone to him he is an absolute angel when we have to go out but if we are nice and pat on his head and go out, he will urinate on the cooker, the dresser,the stairs and raid the fridge if we forget to put the child lock on. please please can you give us any advice on how to overcome our little problems.
