    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 I learned the alpha roll is outdated and am interested in learning a better method to get the dog to understand they are loved and safe...
  3. Training and Behavior Stickies
    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...
  5. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...

  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    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...
  15. 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...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi there, I have a giant breed dog (2.5 yrs) and a large breed (1.5). They are obsessed with one another. We are working at establishing self-confidence in my younger one as she is not confident in social situations without her big brother (they are not litter-mates). My problem is that we...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a 7 month old puppy from the Humane Society - we adopted him 3 months ago. I think he is a lab/boxer mix. He is a typical puppy - boisterous and in need of training (we are going to obedience classes). We adore him and he is really a sweet dog. BUT - over the last two months he has...

    I have a 3 1/2 year old am staff/boxer mix. We rescued her from an animal shelter when she was about 1 1/2. Originally she was perfectly well behaved in the car. For about the last 2 years she has been absolutely crazy in the car. She bites the seat belts and the windows and has even bitten off...

    Hi, My dog, Isaac is great with my family, but he seems to have issues with strangers. I have had a trainer come to my house and it seems to have helped but some problems are still there. My main problem is he jumps on guests and sometimes nips on their clothes and invades their person space...

    Greetings all, I'm new here and joined because I need some advice and perspective. Here's the issue. Our 1 year old rescue is starting to bite our dog walker and is generally nervous and fearful of people (children included) other than myself and my husband. At this point she hasn't been able...
