  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Twice a year, around March and September, my dog gets super clingy for about a month at at time. She is usually very independent, and won’t usually sit with us on the couch unless bribed with a treat. During her clingy months, she needs to sit on top of us and sleep with us in bed. During this...
  2. New Additions
    We got our dog about 6 months ago. We took him from the previous owner because he was neglected and mistreated. We know he's at least part Shepard but what else, we're not sure. He's about 3 years old. Since we've got him, I walk him and take him to the dog park regularly with no issues. 2...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello everyone! I have two dogs, a male 8y Mini American Shepherd and a Neutered 3y full size Aussie neutered.

  5. Puppy Help
    Now I take full responsibility for my puppy's poor habits mainly due to the lack of time put into training, but now I really need to crack down and start correcting some of the bad habits I've let her fall into. For starters my Puppy's name is Nala. She's an 8 month old black lab mix, we...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    Bruno is my first rescue dog. He is a pit mix, about 3.5 years old, and not neutered yet(will be neutered next week.) He was rescued from a dog hoarding case and it seems like he really hates other dogs or is fearful of them. It's a constant struggle trying to walk or run with him when other...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog is half mini Aussie Shepherd, half Rat Terrier and is 8 months old. She lives with my roommate and I in our apartment. The last several weeks, she has been completely avoiding me. When my roommate is home, she will cuddle up with her, sit with her, and act happy. But when my roommate...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    My boyfriends 10 year old Keeshond is occasionally urinating when told to come eat. The food has not changed. He looks excited when I am preparing the food, but refuses to eat it when it is placed in his spot and then will urinate on the floor when told to come eat. If I leave it out, he will...

  10. General Dog Discussion
    Hi there, I have a three year old 9 lbs terrier mix who started developing some weird behavior around mealtimes this past week. Our normal routine is that she gets really excited, I put her food out, she sits, I give the OK and then she eats. Now- she still goes through the motions but when I...
  11. Dog Health
    Hi Everyone. I'm new to this forum and hoping I can find someone with a little insight on hypothyroid test results. Try to make a long story short: I've had my catahoula/pitt mix since he was 8 weeks. He was incredibly well socialized and trained. He went everywhere with me when he was a puppy...
