    Hi Heidrun!

    Thanks for commenting! It’s true that our dogs in America spend more time indoors than out. You’re also correct that the majority of dog owners only let their dog run around outside. It’s something that I’ve been guilty of too. Unfortunately, when we’re out with our dogs, we can usually only walk with them on their leash, which kind of limits how much they can actually run. The majority of parks and other public fields in America do not allow dogs to run around off-leash. Primarily, the only option for that is dog parks, lakes, or woods. But not everyone lives near those. Therefore, we have to resort to using dog playpens and outdoor dog kennels. It kind of stinks, but it’s better than nothing!

    So sorry about that piece of fax paper 😛

    Hi Jim,

    I wouldn’t advise that. I don’t see a particular need to use a common sprayer. What’s going to remove the debris from inside your dog’s ear is the agitation caused by the cotton ball. The 50/50 solution is just acting as an agent to loosen the debris.

    Hi Winnie,

    If it helps, lots of owners have this problem with their dogs. The best advice I ever received regarding any dog training, which I consider this to be, is to initially train the dog when they’re exhausted. With that said, my advice to you is to tire your dog out. When s/he’s about to fall asleep on their bed, pet her while your husband cleans the ears. You may also want to swaddle your pup the first few times.

    And as always, be sure to give plenty of praise afterwards.

    Let me know how it goes!
    Joe

    Hi Trish,

    I clean my dogs’ ears once per week, at minimum. I spot check the ears when I’m cleaning my dogs’ eyes every night. If I see that they’re dirty, I’ll clean them as needed. But once per week is fine.

    Hi Pete,

    Controlling your dog’s barking when you’re not home is a problem that many dog owners face. Unfortunately, you’re not going to be able to curb barking 100% of the time. We need to keep in mind that dogs remember how to act based on the environment that they were trained in. What I mean by this is that a dog knows not to bark when you’re around because you were present when they learned not to bark. They don’t recognize that your house is a no-bark zone; more so that you’re a no-bark zone. We’ve heard that people have had success with solutions such as dog bark controllers, but we cannot personally recommend them.
