ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Pet Talk is a weekly segment airing during 7@four each Wednesday. You can send us your questions through our website and ask professionals what you should do for your pet.

Julia in Roanoke asked, “My dog Gracie is 1 1/2 years old. I cannot break her from jumping or grabbing my hands with mouth when she wants my attention or when I get home. She never bites down and stops when I start rubbing her, let her outside, or give her something to eat. She does pull but I am trying to break her of that by stopping and telling her not to pull.”

We spoke to Ruth Pierce with the Roanoke Valley SPCA and she touched on what to do in this type of situation.
