Dog training and care questions in this video:

  • Hi, Grisha. There is a school in front of my house, therefore a lot of noise daytime.The problem is that my dog gets very stressed when hearing those kids screaming , she just walks around the house growling, barking here and there..Haven't noticed that before as I am usually at work daytime.
