  4. Puppy frustration or agression?

    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.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    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...
