Behaviorist can help with dog's boundary issues http://www.kansascity.com/living/pets/article79736892.html#storylink=rss Q: We have a 2-year-old collie shepherd mix who loves us, offers hugs and kisses and is loyal. But, when the dog and I are on the bed and my 20-year-old son enters the bedroom, the dog growls. Sometimes it's a bit scary. Last week he went too far. My wife and I were lying on the bed watching TV. The dog joined us with his head on her belly. When I got up to go to work, he growled his usual low growl. When I went to kiss my wife goodbye, he growled so close to her face that she thought he was going to bite her. The dog attended training successfully when he was 6 months old, never had a problem with company, and gets along well with the cat. Neighbors love to see us walk down the block while he holds his leash in his mouth. Do you think he just hates to see me leave or see my son enter the bedroom when it is our time?

Pinwheels deter birds from resting on car http://www.kansascity.com/living/pets/article78267357.html#storylink=rss Q: I like to feed the birds in the front of the house. I have a bird feeder and several hanging holders with a honey block that goes in the holder. The birds love it and I watch the many beautiful red and blue and other-colored birds come feast on the goodies outside my window. I also have a bird bath for them, and it's fun to watch them drink and bathe in the fresh water. Here's the problem: One or more of the birds seem to hang out on the car door mirrors and leave droppings all over the car. Every morning I have been using the garden hose to clean droppings from the car. How can I keep my friends from sitting on the cars in my driveway?
