Maybe your dog is being a bit of a nudge and driving you nuts. If so, why not see if you can make your dog a star and head to the casting call for “It’s Me Or The Dog” on June 18 at the USA Dog Shop at the Palisades Center Mall in NY?
From 1pm to 4pm bring your obedience school drop out to the mall and let them know why your dog and you need some help and guidance. The show is looking for dogs who have behavior issues and owners who are finding themselves going nuts from it. If you find your house is being torn apart by bickering, disagreements, and tension, this might be the answer you need.
