Q. My schnauzer is usually happy and go lucky since we got a new puppy her mood is changed. She is stubborn and moody. Is this normal? How can I help her

Answered By

A. It is normal when you bring a new pet into the house. She will get used to the puppy given time just remember to pamper her as much if not more than the puppy. You may want to have her checked over just to make sure there isn't any medical problem or pain causing it. Schnauzers are stubborn dogs!
