  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    So my fiancé and myself got our first dog together (Willow, she's right around 2). We've both had family dogs in the past, but have had this one for 4 days. Obviously new surroundings cause at least some form of anxiety. She's made herself very comfortable in home and that transition was a lot...

    Hi everyone! Hope you're all staying safe and healthy. My roommate just adopted a 7-month-old puppy. She's loving and absolutely adorable. We are 4 people altogether in the house and all give her lots of love. We all walk her and give her treats. My roommate however is her primary owner. She...

    My partner and I adopted a rescue this past Saturday. Moose is an 8 month old 18lb shepherd mix from Tennessee where she was found with her sister in a shed. When we first brought her home, we introduced her to our 2 housemates outside and she was good with them. About two days ago she has...

    My parents recently got a female 2 year old cairn terrier rescue called Sooty. She's a very loving dog and did well at doggy training but she is quite anxious and stressed, particularly when leaving the house to go on a walk. Whenever we get the leads ready she goes beserk, barking and attacking...

    My husband and I recently adopted an almost 2 year old great dane. He is crate trained but doesn't love going in his crate and he will cry a little. Today I found him in my first dogs crate sleeping happily. This made me think to try putting a blanket that smells like my other dog in his crate...

    Hello, Profile: My wife and I have a 4 year old black lab and a 4 year old min pin that we love to death.

  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, I am new to this site and wanted to ask for some advice on what I should do. A few months ago I got a puppy. We crate trained him and I would just use the crate to put him in at night while I was sleeping since he wasn't potty trained yet. Now he is potty trained so I haven't been...

    So I own a 2 year old harlequin great dane named Odd Thomas that has always been a bit of a crazy boy. His temperment is much more similar to a young labrador than the typical behavor of the other great danes I have owned. But recently his spazzyness has gone up to a whole new level and has me...

    Hello! I apologize that this is quite long. We've talked to vets about our dog but there's never any answers. Blood work and physicals have found nothing. We have a 2 year old mixed rescue dog that we adopted when he was only 12 weeks old. He's a lab/hound/beagle mix according to the people we...

  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Decided to start a training journal to track Trucker's journey from the completely petrified dog he was when I adopted him to the dog I know he will be one day :). Here is my reminder of where it all began: I was looking for a "friend" for my 4 year old cat, Galileo and I knew I wanted a...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    I adopted Trucker a little less than a month ago, he has some horrors in his past (not exactly sure what but they are there). This poor baby came to me with scars on his hind legs where it looks like he has been whipped and he cowers at everything. We have been slowly been making improvements...

    Hello all. I have a 14 month old Pitbull/Boxer mix that was adopted a little more than a month ago. He is up to date on all of his vaccines, is neutered, and has exceptional behavior. He likes to bark/whine while residing outside the door for a room/next to my office chair, until he gets...

    Hello, I'm new to this forum and a new dog dad. After a few years of thinking and planning to get a dog, I finally found a little mutt at a local shelter that I fell for immediately. She's about 9 months old and has a really sweet temperament, I was pretty much hers the second I met her. Being a...

    Help! We picked up our bitch Freya from a rescue center ten days ago. For the first week she was happy to go to sleep on her bed, was happy to be left and was really easy going, she played and interacted with us and seemed really relaxed. In the last three days she has been increasingly...
  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello all, First post here. My partner and I have a 1 year old Airedale pup, Panto, who required a fair bit of on going training to get him walking well in addition to general obedience. He is very playful but most of the time did what he was told and rarely barked. We went on a 4 week holiday...

    I have a little Maltese that I adopted when she was 7 wks old....at the time she appeared rather withdrawn but healthy so I assumed she would come out of her shell and be a big love bug like my other Maltese Casper. This little puppy soon to be named Rose has now been in my home for several...
  20. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog is a rescue dog and was never any bother when out walking. She could be on the lead or off the lead and she was good as gold, however a few years back we were walking back home when she was on the lead and out of no where another dog came racing towards us and attacked her. As she was...
