  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    I always say my dog is 80% perfect. Which is amazing! There are two habits I have not been able to break her of... 1. Eating shit off the ground when we are out on walks. This is super dangerous and utterly exhausting. I have to watch her like a hawk, unless the grass is superrrrr clean. Takes...

    Thursday, the 25th, I bought a Shiba Inu female from a breeder. She was in a litter of 11 but by the time I found her, there were only 5 left. Only 4 months old, she grew up around many different breeds of dogs such as Dalmations, Shar Pei and of course other shibas. She was very nervous on the...

    Just for some background, I(female) rescued a male Great Pyrenees puppy from a “breeder.” He is not purebred but very close to it but I have no clue what he is mixed with. I’m assuming he was about 4 months at the time I got him (he is around 8 months now). He was extremely malnourished, lived...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, we’ve had our dog from 8 weeks and now he’s 8 months. My mother today tried to put his flea treatment on (from past experience I know he does not like having it on) and he wouldn’t at first. She said she applied it while he was eating his food but ever since he has not wanted to be by us and...

    Hi! I wasn't sure what section to put this in. I currently have an almost 3 year old male chocolate Labrador (neutered) and am looking to get a second dog. I was originally set on getting a German Shepherd because I've wanted one since I was a child and I want that intimidation factor when I...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    Sorry for the long post! Basically, my dad adopted a puppy recently. Turns out he wasn't ready for all the work. He feeds her and takes her out, but is not really exercising or training her.... and his method of discipline is yelling and slapping her on the butt. (I've told him many times that...

  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I've just created an account in this forum because I'm very concerned about this problem, a very strange situation. I want to hear different opinions, but I will most likely hire an ethologist to solve this problem, as I have no idea about what to do. First of all, sorry if I have spelling...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone! When I started learning my dog basic tricks she was doing great one after another, but now when I give her an order she is laying down and waiting for a treat. Do you know how could I help myself with training her? Do you know any magic tricks to make her more obedient? Do you have...

    Very long post to contextualize the situation. I’m just looking at any tips to how to tackle this huge personality change in my dog. There was no traumatic event to start this, it seems connected with puberty. This is a long list of behaviors/issues that popped up once my guy started going...

    So I have a senior yorkie (12yo) and two huskies (both are 9-10 mo) and the weirdest thing happened tonight.

    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.
