  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a skittish dog that I adopted from the shelter. After bringing it home it warmed up to my roommate much more quickly than it did even to me. It has been about six months since the dog moved in and it has recently started growling, barking, giving side eye, and now attempting to bite...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    So I adopted a 2.5 month old puppy from a shelter and it's been 7 days since we brought her home and I am crying everyday. It's not the exhaustion, I have no problem cleaning after her, it's just that she keeps nipping me, lunging at my face, and keeps jumping on my bed and biting me. She...

    Hello everyone, I am new to this website but would just like some advice if anyone can help me. Two weeks ago we welcomed the most lovely natured border collie puppy into our family home. She gets about four walks a day and about a 3 hour run around a Croft everyday. We give her the exercise and...

    I got my puppy Abie at around 8 weeks old and he was always a nibbler but he also was very loving so I thought he would grow out of it when he stopped teething. He was born into quarantine so he’s never been out on a walk (my neighborhood isn’t safe at all so I can’t walk him outside my house)...

    What is the alternative to the alpha roll for social aggression ie dog growling and biting at you simply because he doesn't want to go outside or go to bed? I learned the alpha roll is outdated and am interested in learning a better method to get the dog to understand they are loved and safe...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    We just rescued a 3yo Border Collie/Aussie. We were warned he has "resource aggression" and was given up because he bit a child very severely. We have some experience with dog training and hoped we could teach him manners and give him a loving home. He is a moderately energetic dog but we have...

    I need help. I have a pit who is 1 years old, crazy anxiety, on 400mg of trazadone a day. She just got a new impact dog crate, she’s chewing and scratching the inside. Her teeth are all silver. I’m afraid she’s going to break her teeth. I need ideas on what to line the inside of the crate walls...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I'm 19, and I have a one year old hound mix. Basically, he's been biting me constantly. In the morning, he'll greet me happily with kisses. Then when I sit down with him, he starts biting me. He bites my feet, my hands, my arms, and rips up my sleeves. I have to fend him off for 30 minutes...

    Hi! I have a new doggie at home and I am seriously crying over him lately. I love Jackie, but I am a little lost - he is soooo stressed. And last week he bit someone. I am unsure on how to help him. Some background about him. He's a more or less 3 year old dog that was taken from his home...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog has been snapping at his tail aggressively while barking and yelping. He will lie down for a while, seemingly comfortable, then he will suddenly spring up and start snapping like something has just hurt him. We've given him flea medicine for a couple weeks now and he continues doing it...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi there, I have a 1.5yr hound-ish mutt, who is the sweetest pup you'd ever meet normally...very submissive, loves people and other dogs (so much love!), and is so sweet, tolerant and gentle with my kids...he has never shown a hint of aggression toward them in any setting. We've been having...

  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    So I just adopted my first dog (my parents had a small dog when I was about 3 but I don't really remember much of that). He's a 1.5 year old Border Collie mix that was taken to the shelter as a stray. We've only had him for about a week and he has become increasingly aggressive. The first two...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 7 month old currently has an issue with over reactive bursts of nipping and biting. They occur around the same time each night, somewhere between 7:30pm and 9pm. She essentially reaches a point where all attempts of redirecting to toys have become useless, she simply ignores them and goes for...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 10 year old Lhasa Apso is usually well behaved and very loving. There have been several instances though where he has been acting comfortable and friendly towards someone and then all of a sudden snaps and bites them. Over the past 5 years he has bitten friends and family of mine without any...
  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog goes to bed late, probably around 1 am. I usually need to fill my water bottle around this time so I go upstairs to grab ice, but he decides to sleep in front of the freezer. I’ll wake him up by calling his name so I don’t startle him when trying to open it but then he won’t move so I...

    Hi, Me and my sister just re-homed this 8 month old husky mix. He's been really great up until a few days ago where he would start mouthing very hard and tugging on clothes really hard. We tried turning around to ignore him to send a message that it is not okay behavior but he starts tugging...
  20. Puppy Help
    Hi all! I am new to this forum and also new to owning a puppy. Unfortunately, I did not do enough research and I brought home my puppy too early. He is a jindo only 5 weeks old. He is weaned and is eating solid food no problem. I understand that 6-8 weeks is when he learns important things from...
