  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    I’m not exactly sure where to post this, so if I should remove this or move it, let me know! I have one almost two year old female Labrador Retriever, one almost three year old male Husky and German Shepard (and a whole lot of other breeds). Both are pretty dominant and have gotten into...

    Background (PLEASE READ): I live in an impoverished country that does not have any form of animal control services or animal shelters/pounds. My neighborhood has been suffering from a stray dog problem for a while now where several stray dogs are residing in the area and harassing residents...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey all! My boyfriend and I adopted a pit/beagle mix named Clyde back in Jan of this year, and he really is a very sweet boy. However, he just really hates people. At first, he was very fearful of me, watching me constantly, growling and snapping if I got too close, etc. He did have parvo...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    Our 9 weeks old puppy gets quite aggressive, growling and biting when you try to pull him away from the food that is not his. For example, I accidently dropped some cat food on the floor and he started eating it. When I tried to pull him away from the food he immediately started growling and...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 10 year old Lhasa Apso is usually well behaved and very loving. There have been several instances though where he has been acting comfortable and friendly towards someone and then all of a sudden snaps and bites them. Over the past 5 years he has bitten friends and family of mine without any...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    My four month old puppy is a mix breed and very sweet, playful, affectionate and friendly - until you try and get her to stop doing something she wants to be doing. For example, after a long walk she plunked down in the grass and it was next to impossible to get her up. Calling her, pulling on...

    Hi There, My fiance and I just adopted our first dog, a female 5 month old Australian Shepherd puppy at the end of March. I've grown up with 2 Aussies and know a bit about their breed. So, we figured we knew what we were getting ourselves into. Of course, we did some research ahead of time and...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    So last week I adopted a chihuahua/dachshund mix. He was nervous when I brought him home since my home was quite big and he was with his previous family for about three months and who knows how long with the last one. Now, he follows me everywhere and loves me to pieces. The problem is, my dad...

    We have a 7 month old puppy from the Humane Society - we adopted him 3 months ago. I think he is a lab/boxer mix. He is a typical puppy - boisterous and in need of training (we are going to obedience classes). We adore him and he is really a sweet dog. BUT - over the last two months he has...

    I have a one year old corgi named Dolly and she has been food aggressive from the moment we brought her home. She has never snapped or bitten my husband or I, but she will bark and growl and her hair stands up on her back, as well as just being very tense and protective of her food. We have had...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    My new boyfriend has a 10 month old MALE Belgian Malinois. He's good with everyone, very friendly. When I go over, he jumps on me and nips at me. If my boyfriend leaves the room, the dog comes at me and chews my arm aggressively but looks playful. The more I try to get away and say "NO" the...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello! Unfortunately, this may be a bit of a long thread so I'll try to condense the message as much as I can. I adopted a dog named Jetson back in March (he is now a year old). I immediately noticed that he was a very dominant male dog with a very strong personality. He has surprisingly been a...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone! This is my first time posting-- I was hoping I could get some advice/help on dog behavior. I have a super sweet pooch-- he's a 3yr old Leonberger/Golden retriever named Max. We got him from the shelter when he was 1, and the folks there suspected his last few owners had been...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    My boyfriend and I are proud, loving, (astonished, helpless) owners of a 5 year old red nose pit bull named Shila. My boyfriend has had her since she was 3 months old, and she has never been spayed. Shila adores both of us- the problem comes in with our roommates. A couple of days ago, for...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dad has a bad temper and will sometimes lash out. My new foster dog has picked up on this after seeing him yell at me and now won't even let him be in the same room as me, growling and barking at him until ghe leaves. What do I do to stop this?
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    Help! I have a 6 month old husky/corgi/heeler mix who is the sweetest dog ever about 80% of the time! The other 20% is naughty in normal puppy behaviors but is very aggressive about it. Im having issues because it is not all the time these behaviors occur, its just random times! She bares her...

    This is a long post but if you bear with me, you will understand why. There are a lot a factors that have played into where we are now and we are at the point that we need professional advice. Even if your advice is just what type of professional we need to see about this, it is much...

    My 13 months old GSD is not coward with other dogs but he's so peaceful, inoffensive, and often defenseless against other dogs' aggressiveness, bites, and attacks. He doesn't get angry easily, all what he wants is to play with them. At present, I don't have time for professional dog training...

He will growl at people he is not familiar with on the street and when they enter the home. he will growl at...
  20. Dog Training and Behavior
    So I have a small shih that's been spoiled for four years, taken from the mother relatively young (1 and 1/2 mos old) so he was never able to develop social skills for dogs and he doesn't get to interact with other dogs often since he stays at home most of the time. He's always been our only...
