  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog has been lunging and nipping at people and other dogs in stores or on walks since she had pups. When she does this the pups aren't even with her. I'm keeping one of the pups and am concerned if I do that the mothers bad behavior will continue. She's always been a little shy and barks at...

    Hello everyone, We rehomed a 9 week old bearded collie (from a working background) from his original owners, who collected him from a farm at 8 weeks, however they needed to rehome him as he was too nippy. Our household consists of: myself (25), partner (25), little brother (14) and parents...

    My sister and brother-in-law adopted a large 5yr old Pitbull who I adore. He is the sweetest dog and for the first few months had few behavioral issues.

    I’ve tried extensively googling this and I’m coming up blank. A quick background on my pup. My dog is a 5.5 y/o male Plott Hound mix, with one of the calmest and least interested temperaments I’ve ever seen. I’ve had him since he was 2.5 y/o, he was sick for the longest until we finally found a...

    So I have a 70lb pit/mastiff mix that I’ve had since he was 5 weeks. He’s 1 1/2 years now. He is the most loved dog on the planet. Haha. He is obviously used to our undivided attention. We have to leave him alone in his yard which is big but boring, for a quite a few hours from time to time and...

    My fiancé and I got our Rottweiler from a breeder when she was 8 weeks old (she is 7 months now) and she has always been a little bit sassy and definitely a confident dog, but nothing even close to what she’s been doing lately. Every time you try to grab her by the collar, move her in any way...
  10. Puppy Help
    What is the alternative to the alpha roll for social aggression ie dog growling and biting at you simply because he doesn't want to go outside or go to bed? I learned the alpha roll is outdated and am interested in learning a better method to get the dog to understand they are loved and safe...

    Hi everyone! My girlfriend and I just adopted a 6 year old great Pyrenees. He is very gentle and welcoming towards all humans no matter what gender, age, or size. He lived with the same family for 6 years and they weren't able to keep him for a few different reasons. Since he had been at a...
  12. Dog Grooming
    Hello everyone, I can't find anything on the internet to help my situation so I'm here in hopes that someone can help. My dog is a very aggressive dog. He's usually very sweet but when he's afraid he becomes really hostile, which is why I have trouble grooming him. He's been very matted and...

    Hi! My female dog Bella (10 years old) has recently become very aggressive towards my other dog Molly (also 10 years old). Bella is my boyfriends dog, and Molly is mine. We moved in together about 1 year ago, so the dogs have been living together for 1 year. When we first moved in, they got...

    Hi, I have a dog question that...I am thinking I might take my dogs to a behaviorist, but I wanted to maybe see if there was some advice to be had from other dog owners. Recently got married, I have a 4 year old miniature (9 pounds) australian shepherd and hubby has a 2 year old female part rat...

    Hi all, I'm the owner of a 3 year old, spayed mut and I've identified a pattern of behavior that she has developed over the past year. I've had her since she was a young pup and I made sure to socialize her as much as possible including semi-weekly daycare and visits with my older sister's dogs...
  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog has been getting more and more difficult. While she's improved in places (she doesn't hate men now, she knows the kitchen and bedroom are off limits, she sits at the door and waits until given permission to walk out of the house, no more shoe chewing, much better at not pulling on walks)...

    Long story, but I'll keep it as short as possible. We got our Siberian husky at 8 weeks old, about 9 months ago, from a family who just decided to let their huskies have puppies. They were not breeders - should've known right then. I know they meant no harm but it was obvious they just wanted...

    I have a three year old pure bred Maltese who has always had issues with separation anxiety from me and barking uncontrollably. In the process of trying to train him out of that, for the last couple months he has started to become aggressive. He used to love every single person who walked in the...
