    We have 2 Thai Ridgeback dogs, a neutered female and her intact brother. About 9 months ago, we adopted a small male puppy of unknown breed, although he looks a bit like a greyhound now. All was well, the dogs got on okay with each other, until about 6 weeks ago when the Thai Ridgeback male...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    Just and FYI about myself and my dog. My boy has been perfect with dogs and people since I first got him. I always train my dogs thoroughly to make sure they're highly obedient, well socialised, and I've previously had success training dogs out of dominance based aggression in foster care...

  12. New Dogs and Puppies
    Hello, Our adult havanese (3 years old) has been a very skittish dog ever since we brought her home. She was incredibly scared of being held up and strangers. We thought this trauma came from her precious owners because as we later found out she was bred in very bad conditions. She is no longer...

    Hi friends! I adopted a rescue from Aruba - he is 12 weeks (15lbs) and a mutt with likely heritage of Ibizan Hound or Portuguese Podengo. I adopted him when he was just shy of 9 weeks old, so he was very young. He is pretty attached to me, but gaining his confidence and I can tell he is a...

    We just rescued a 3yo Border Collie/Aussie. We were warned he has "resource aggression" and was given up because he bit a child very severely. We have some experience with dog training and hoped we could teach him manners and give him a loving home. He is a moderately energetic dog but we have...
