Dottie and Pete have two special dogs, Mollie and Ellie.
Mollie was born deaf and was an only dog for a number of years. Dottie and Pete have struggled with the best ways to teach her commands and work with her special needs.

Then a few years later, Ellie, came to live with them! Ellie came from a household that was incompatible for her and is much happier in her new home.

Ellie and Mollie now love to bark together and do not stop barking when they’re asked to stop. Dottie wonders if there’s a more effective way to use the dog’s crates, which they love, as a way to get them to stop barking? What other tips help with excessive barking and crate training?

Another question: Do dogs get jealous? Ellie is happy to spend time with Pete alone, but when she’s with Dottie and Pete comes into the room, Ellie starts to bark. Why does she only bark at him when Dottie’s around? What is that about?
