I want to know if I should get help for my 4 year old daughter who constantly hurts our small dogs. She purposely hurts them when we aren’t in the room, or will go to them in a seperate room and hit/kick/squeeze them. We catch her a lot, but only if we see it or the dogs make a noise. How many times has she done it when they haven’t yelped? I’m really worried she’s got some sort of psychological issue and enjoys hurting them? She gets in trouble and knows it’s wrong, she lies about hurting them too. Should I get her help?
