  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    We have had our 16 month old Bichon Frise X Maltese since she was 4 months old. Since getting her we have been using the same groomer. She has never liked the groomers but was always well behaved. In the summer we took her and the groomer called us to pick her up as she had been snapping at the...
  2. General Dog Discussion
    I feel bad when my family scolded my dog. I asked them first before getting him and they agreed and are excited they cuddled him and played with him but as time went by they got tired and they couldnt take responsibility of him especially when he does poo and pee. They dont have enough patience...
  3. 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...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    We recently rescued a male 1 yr old lab/pitbull mix from the local animal shelter. The first week he was home was a walk in the park. He is already potty trained, great with the kids, and honestly a sweet heart in and out of the home. I've recently started training him on staying and walking...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 6 month Yorkshire Terrier. I have tried so hard to socialise him. Ever since we had him we took him everywhere with us. Inside the house, he is the lovliest, sweetest dog. He loves people and he gets so excited when we have visitors. We never had a problem taking him for walks. He loved...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    (Repost) We recently adopted a healthy male mini Sheltie puppy at 11 weeks (now 12 weeks old) from a breeder and he seems so stoic. The first time we met him, the breeder was holding him in her arms and he didn’t wag his tail or show much interest in us. We didn’t take this to heart...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 2 (almost 3) year old dachshund is suddenly marking all throughout the house. Not only on new items, but on corners of the wall, doors, and even the bed (he sleeps with me, so it’s his bed/scent too). I never catch him in the act, and can only assume he does it out of anxiety when I leave...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, my partner and I got a golden retriever puppy (male) when he was 8 weeks old, he is now 6 months. We have another dog (female) and a cat (female). He has become more attached to me - wherever I go he is glued to my side- but he has recently started peeing on my partners side of the bed...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I have a female dog, 5 years old, mixed with golden and something else I don't know, castrated. Every time when we come back from a trip (2 times a days, about 30 minutes each), she is humping on her bed for a few minutes... She is humping only on her bed, never on us or any other dogs. Does...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone! I'm studying to be a canine behaviourist and for my thesis, I'm looking into the link between a dog's appearance and the onset of "reactive" behaviour. I've put together a survey that I'd love dog carers to fill out. If any of you have a few spare minutes, I'd really appreciate...
  11. 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...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    I am 30 and have had dogs most my childhood and adult life-all rescues, both puppy and adult adoptions. Kona is unlike any other rescue I've ever had and I don't know where to go from here with her training. She is about a year and a half old med/large breed. I'm thinking maybe some Shepard in...

    Hello, everyone. I would really appreciate any advice you could give me in my situation if you know anything about aggression in dogs, especially senior dogs. So, I have been living with my boyfriend and his family for almost 4 years and his chihuahua as well. His chihuahua should be about 16...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    My sister and brother-in-law adopted a large 5yr old Pitbull who I adore. He is the sweetest dog and for the first few months had few behavioral issues. However, over the holidays he showed some concerning behaviors that has my brother-in-law worried because he has had family members bitten by...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello everyone, I got my dog from a shelter almost 2 years ago. She was 3 months old at the time. She is an Aussie mix, not sure what else is there (but she has a lot of aussie in her). Despite some issues with separation anxiety (due to the fact that some a**hole threw her in a dumpster when...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    My SO and I adopted a 1 yr old male Shiba back in July from someone who needed to re-home him. SO has had Shiba's before and I have had multiple spitz breeds so neither of us were too worried about having issues with him. Initially, we were dealing with idiopathic aggression (would randomly bite...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi friends! I adopted a rescue from Aruba - he is 12 weeks (15lbs) and a mutt with likely heritage of Ibizan Hound or Portuguese Podengo. I adopted him when he was just shy of 9 weeks old, so he was very young. He is pretty attached to me, but gaining his confidence and I can tell he is a...

    Hello, I have a 1.5 year old Australian Shepherd/Pit Bull mix. She's super smart and also has a lot of energy. We've had her since she was 4 months old, and unfortunately about after a month of being with us, I was rear ended with her in the car. Thankfully there were no injuries, just an...

    I have a six year old, 10 pound chi-dachshund mix named Hobbles. We adopted her from a shelter in March. She has mange on her back which makes us think that she may have suffered some neglect/malnutrition but she is very friendly so we have no reason to believe that she was ever physically...
