  1. I want to give up!!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi guys, I have an 8 month old Bernese mountain dog and poodle mix. He is about 65 pounds. When I first got him, he was peeing in the house like crazy but always went poo outside. He got over that, and we got to the point where I really thought he was potty trained! No more peeing in the house...
  2. My dog keeps barking and bashing at the backdoor, need advice.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I recently adopted a 15 month old (approx) staffy, and at the pound he was very energetic and playful, but most importantly quiet. We were told he was raised previously as an outdoors dog and I intended to keep that tradition. However, we've let him inside a few times to stay out of the...
  3. Trouble with Stairs!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a year old chocolate lab who had no problem going up and down the stairs until a few days ago. Now she can't, which has caused problems since her outdoor area is through the basement and everything else is upstairs. It doesn't help that she is the most vocal lab I ever heard since she...
  4. Otherwise Friendly Dog Boisterous With Smaller Dogs

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Thanks for reading this. I have an 18-month-old Australian Shepherd. She's very well natured, pretty well socialised with other dogs and quite playful as she's still young. Great with humans and kids and well-loved in our community. Recently she's developed what I'm going to call some...
  5. Very friendly G Doodle becoming aggressive

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a large, male, neutered 5 yr old Golden Doodle. For his first 4.5 years we would have described him as the perfect dog but recently he has become a little aggressive with some dogs he meets, whether he is on-leash or off. Formerly, he would attempt to play with about 1 in 20 dogs he...
  6. Are my dogs being aggressive or playing? (New puppy)

    Puppy Help
    I just got a chocolate lab puppy about four weeks ago, I have a 7 year old black lab as well. My older lab has had bad experiences with other smaller dogs so I don't know if it will get better when she get bigger. Lately the puppy is jumping up on the older one, and teeth are bared and growling...
  7. My Dalmatian keeps picking fights, I'm worried!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Dexter's a lovely dog and a big softie, but as soon as he sees another dog in the park he'll approach them and silently (he's a quiet dog) stand up to them, tall and defiant. I'm not an expert, because he wags I assume he's just playing, but then the other dog starts growling. This isn't just...
  8. My dog is vibrating when I'm with him??

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I have a german shepherd cross Australian shepherd named Aussie; he is 10 years old. He's a little bit of an anxious dog anyway but recently I've noticed that his body kind of quivers/vibrates when I talk to him and show him affection. He seems to do it mostly in the morning when I...
  9. Our New Puppy Pees in Our Bed

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a new King Charles Cav puppy (home for 4 days) and we have been doing our best to potty train her. She is being crate trained and is great in her crate at night and short periods throughout the day. We take her to her pee spot as soon as she wakes up or every hour, praise her and give...
  10. Incessant barking

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog (2yo greyhound) wakes up every single morning between 5:45 and 6:15 and starts barking like crazy. Doesn't matter whether he sleeps in our room or in the next room. I've tried ignoring him and letting him bark but he won't stop and we have neighbours.. If I give him attention and play...

  12. Is this normal for a 5 month old?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog Chanel is 5 and a half months old, lately she has benn countersurfing nonstop to the point that she climbs on the dinner table when no one is watching her. She is very good to kids, her size scares them though, but she has been barking at men she doesnt know. The main problem is that I...

    Dog Health
    For a little while now I've been having some trouble with my bichon being sick every day, always around 6pm. It started a few months ago and was happening every few days or so but now it's progressed to being every night. We haven't changed his food at all but we've started taking him out for...
  16. Our dog chews everything

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a 2 year old ex-racing greyhound that we took straight from the kennels, so he's only lived with a family for a few months. He is well behaved, but he can never be left alone because he will chew everything he comes across - a few moments of inattention have already cost us a few phone...

He is a shih tzu who has been rescued from being a stud dog at a puppy farm in Ireland. We have already seen some immense changes in the past few months. When we first got him, he would...
  19. Our dog is suddenly really clingy?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    So our dog does have anxiety problems, but he has never been so severe as the past few weeks. It happened very suddenly and it is causing a lot of stress in the household. He used to be able to lay next to our bed and be fine with that, while we work, I work at home and so does my partner. and...
  20. My dog has developed extreme stress during storms

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My 4 1/2 year old springer spaniel has recently (in the last few weeks) developed behavioural problems whenever there is a storm - or at least it is windy - at night. He never used to mind noisy weather but now he is agitated and excited. He won't settle anywhere, scratching, barking, digging...
