  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    I need advice. I have a nine year old yorkie-norfolk mix. In December she broke her arm. While she was healing we never left her home alone and got a stroller for when we took her out. We pretty much carried her everywhere until she got her cast off end of February. Then Covid hit in March and...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Twice a year, around March and September, my dog gets super clingy for about a month at at time. She is usually very independent, and won’t usually sit with us on the couch unless bribed with a treat. During her clingy months, she needs to sit on top of us and sleep with us in bed. During this...

    I have a 12 week old Dachshund puppy and he is terribly clingy. If I sit on the floor, he automatically crawls into my lap. Even if I move him back to the floor, he will just crawl back in.

    Please help. I've made a big mistake and I don't know how to fix it. I went on holiday and put my dogs into a dog hotel. It's a family hotel that we have a good experience with but it was the first time for my dogs. They're very close so I thought that being together would make it easier for...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    Our 5-year-old GSD, Smokey, is demonstrating some clingy, insecure behaviors that confuse us. When we adopted him at 18 months of age he showed milder forms of these behaviors, but they have intensified over the past few months. Nothing that we can detect has changed for him that might cause...

    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...

    So here's what's happened with Cobber recently. Two weeks ago today, instead of going to his usual doggy daycare place while I went to work, he was at the vet's being neutered. The next day, he was home in his crate all day, although I went home for lunch, so he was crated 4 hours, out, then 4...

    This is my first time posting, so please forgive me if my post is a little "noobish", but I have a problem and have not been able to find help online: I have a 3 year old male terrier-mix who I adopted when he was a few months old. Lately (the last week), he has been very needy, clingy, and...

    My dachshund, Max is unnecessarily clingy. He's so obsessed that he is afraid to take his eye of me and eat his food. He sets up camp right in front of the door to his room when we leave him in there which is when we're not home, and won't drink his water even if I put it by the door beside him...
