Dreadful sorry about the intrusive Tripod ads. We have pulled up stakes and moved to an ad-free environment*.

If the unwanted sidebar window on the left opens up along with it, you can get rid of the offending portion by clicking the "x" in its upper right-hand corner. Click on the actual window on the left, not on the explanatory graphic below.

* Ok, there are a few small ads at the bottom of the main page, BUT Top5 Pets directly benefits from them. We keep them unobtrusive.

               The Top 8 Worst Puppy Training Tips

 8> "Now that's a good boy!  Go ahead, hump Daddy's leg now,
    you earned it..."

 7> Punish your puppy for showing "peeing" and "pooing" behavior.
    You'll have none of that.

 6> To create a negative association with chasing mail carriers,
    whack your puppy's rump with third-rate bulk mail.

 5> If your puppy won't listen to you, get a second puppy.  Peer 
    pressure works wonders.

 4> Using a pair of Grandma's socks as a wrestle toy will make 
    your young pit bull associate her scent with "protection" 
    so he will always keep her safe.

 3> Place several layers of newspaper in a corner.  Then 
    demonstrate so the puppy will know what you want him to do.

 2> When he makes a mess on the rug, make *him* clean it up, 
    and don't take any of that "I don't have any thumbs!" crap
    from him, either.

    and the Number 1 Worst Puppy Training Tip...

 1> A small-sized Depends will fit a Great Dane pup.
