  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, a new thing my dog has seemed to developed. Every time for the past 2 weeks if we open the door to let him out he instantly barks as soon as he’s outside. He’s 9 months old and this has never been an issue before. It literally is like that as soon as the door opens and he’s outside he’s...
  2. New Member Introductions
    Jan and I have rescued a 3 year old Toy Poodle (female) and have decided - very quickly - that she is now our Forever dog. We both have had dog family members before - from Labradors to Pyrenean Mountain Dogs (including German Shepards). It became very obvious that 'Penny' hadn't had any life...
  3. Dog Health and Food
    Hello, a week ago my dog escaped from the house whilst we were out and when we returned it came back. However, its behaviour changed completely and is now shivering very hard, panting, drooling at times, clingy and constantly looking at doors and at our cleaning lady. She only acts like this...
  4. 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...

    I have adopted a dog with my girlfriend to our apartment. The dog, Poppy, is 4-5 years old female pointer mix, she will be spayed soon because of adopting conditions. She is from a shelter, where she gave birth to 10 puppies, so she got separated from her puppies at 11 weeks. We don't know much...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a very calm and friendly Yorkshire terrier. But lately he's been doing this thing. Ever since I started having longer hours at university whenever I arrive and meet him at home or in the car he growls in a low voice, staying still and stares at me but never takes a step to attack. It's...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    So my family and me got a female miniture poodle last week. Tomorrow she will be 9 weeks old and has been for us for 1 week. First day she was here she kept on crying non stop, luckily this has calmed down and now she sleeps in my room in her crate with the door open, sometimes she wines but...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, lovely people! I'm hoping you'll be able to give me some advice. I own two rescue dogs here in Taipei, Taiwan. I take them to a dog park daily, however lately, a dog has been showing up that is being a complete pest to my dog and every other dog that goes there. This dog relentlessly...
