  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog is 2 years and 9 months old. I adopted her at 8 mo. with my roommate, but I moved out after a year because this roommate did not want to deal with her anxiety anymore. We later found she was seriously abused. I was raised in a home with rescues all my life, and my parents fostered as many...
  2. New Dogs and Puppies
    Hello all, A little history - I grew up with dogs but that was a loooong time ago. I had a dog with my husband (puppy) all was well and we were playing house with our new baby. He died suddenly when he was 7 years old. I was devastated to say the least because of course he became 'my dog'. My...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    I adopted a 5 year old retriever mix a week and a half ago from a rescue. The dog came from a hoarder situation. The dog is extremely scared and anxious, especially around any people other than me. When she’s inside she’ll just sit or sleep in her crate, but whenever she hears me or hears me...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello all, I just adopted a five year old golden who had previously been in a hoarding situation. The dog is understandably extremely anxious, but has not shown any signs of aggression and is very quiet, I have had her for a week and the most noise she has made is whining. Obviously she isn’t...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 1.5 year old cavapoo Cora has quite a bit of anxiety/fear, especially with strangers coming into our house or approaching her in general. These triggers are easy to anticipate/replicate, and we’re working with her to counter-condition and desensitize her by minimizing her negative reactions...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    For background he’s 5(ish), a former hunting hound who lived outside in a dog run 24/7 minus hunting trips, anxious, and allergy prone. All of the above are sort of what I think is causing his aversion to casual strolls around my neighborhood. When I first brought him home two years ago he kept...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a beautiful great dane x bull mastiff. She experiences an abnormal form of separation anxiety (I think). The best way to explain it is: She is perfectly fine if i drive away or I am in a room inside the house with the door closed. But she experience severe anxiety (barking, whining...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    I got my 1 and a half year old Pekingese mix back in November 2020 and he truly exceeded expectations when I got him. He wouldn’t tear anything he wasn’t supposed to and wouldn’t even bark! However the main issue lies when he is alone. He ended up escaping his old crate (he was crate trained)...

  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    This is Martini! She is an 11 year old boston terrier, pomeranian mix. Ever since she was about 2 or 3 years old, she has suffered from anxiety. The older she gets the worse it gets, especially her separation anxiety. She has ate through a wall, dug up carpet, and destroyed 3 couches. I have...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog shows signs of anxiety, and I believe that licking is one of the symptoms that she demonstrates. She also loves to lick people. I don't mind the licking, but some people do not want to be licked. Is there a way to teach her a command to stop licking when needed. Again, I don't mind when...

    I have a 8 month old exotic bully! Now I have several obstacles I am having trouble with. The main 1 is my dog using the bathroom in the house. And for some reason he pees on the beds! If you let him alone in any bedroom in my house he will jump up and pee. Now I also have a 2 year old pit bull...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all! So I adopted an 8yr old cattle dog/pitty mix about a year ago and his foster was...less than forthcoming about his needs. He has an incredible amount of anxiety, and close to no prior socialization. More specifically he gets extremely defensive, anxious, and hostile around new dogs. When...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    Nearly five years ago, my roommate and I adopted a Pomeranian puppy. He was 10 weeks old and born at a sweet home with grandparents raising their teenage children as well as a 3-year-old grandson. We thought it was a benefit that the puppy had been around kids and the family’s other dogs...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello All, A dog rescue I know had an American Akita that nobody wanted to adopt or foster. Rocky was chained in a warehouse for his entire life (8 years), together with his brother as guard dogs before being rescued. The man who had him physically mistreated him severely so Rocky did not trust...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I’m completely new to this forum and to owning a dog. I read a bunch of books on it though so I feel like I have everything mostly under control, except for handling my dogs fears. One of those fears that is giving me an especially hard time is my pups fear of cars on walks, he won’t even...

    So I am fostering hopefully soon to be adopting an English shepherd. He is 2 years old. This is my first rescue. He was poorly mistreated and left outside in a small kennel from birth all the way til he was rescued I think 6 months ago. I know the breed needs exercise so I took him to a public...

    Came up with this idea in 2015, finally decided 2021 is the year to make it a real thing to share with all our dog friends! I've seen dog groomers use this sock thing on dog's ears when they blow dry them. But I've been using my prototype for ages and I hope it works better, it certainly looks...
