  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone, We're first time dog owners and recently adopted a sweet Australian Cattle Dog/Beagle mix from a nearby shelter - he's a little over 2 years old and hasn't had any training. Despite being a cattle dog mix, he's a relatively mellow, super sweet little guy. Unfortunately, he's got...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    I’ve had my poodle chihuahua mix, Bella, for around 7 years now, and never had too serious of a problem with whining at night. At night, we normally lock her in the large garage and she sleeps on the couch in there. Before, when we locked her up for the night, she would test us by whining for...

    I'm unsure if this is a good idea. I'm going to have an 8 week old puppy. I want to crate train when I'm not home and for sleeping. I do not want to use pee pads. Is it a bad idea to put the crate inside an x-pen. When I am not home crate door will be closed. But when I am home I want to...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    So my dog is about 4 years old. When I got him as a puppy I started crate training him but he ended up getting parvo (long story) and so I got really scared of losing him and overcompensated by spoiling him and letting him sleep in my bed. Now circumstances have changed where he needs to be...

    Hello, I am new to this site and wanted to ask for some advice on what I should do. A few months ago I got a puppy. We crate trained him and I would just use the crate to put him in at night while I was sleeping since he wasn't potty trained yet. Now he is potty trained so I haven't been...

    Hi All! I have a 5 year old Goldendoodle who picked up potty training immediately as a puppy. In the last 5 years she has not had any accidents, except when she has been sick. My mother came and stayed over the holidays, and when my mom left, my goldendoodle now poops in the guest room or...
  9. Puppy Help
    Hi All, I am a new first time puppy owner (adorable 2 months old minie doxie). It might be too early to complain (I got her this Friday), but I have hard time crate and potty training. Crate training is hard because she doesn't like eating much. When she does it's from my hand mostly. Last...

    Question: How do I get my 2 dogs to stop barking in their crates at night? Details: I have 2 young Shorkies (yorkie/shih tzu). We got the girl (Millie) a 8 weeks old. Let her sleep in our bed from the very beginning. We tried crate training but that didn't work well because we lived in an...

    When we first picked up Moxie we had a 20 hour drive back to our home on Magnetic Island here in Australia. I didn't know what to expect having such a new puppy in the car with us for that long. We split the drive up into 3 long days and honestly she was a dream. She never urinated or went potty...

  14. Puppy Help
    My 10 week old Maltipoo is pretty much crate trained. She will go in the crate on her own and doesnt have an issue with being in the crate at bedtime. She doesnt whine much in the crate. However, when it is bedtime, I have to physically put her in the crate. Once in there she usually lays down...

    Hi there, I am a first-time dog owner of a 6 month old boxer/lab mix puppy. He is house trained in the sense that he will not go to the bathroom in the house and sleeps 8-10+ hours through the night without going potty. Usually, there is someone home with him during the day while I am at my 9-5...

    Last March my husband and I adopted our girl. She is believed to be 19 months old. We were told she was potty trained. We started noticing she had separation anxiety. We tried to crate her and she destroyed it so we took a chance and let her roam and she didn't destroy anything. She used to...

    Now that Biscuit has a nice, new mesh crate, I intend to crate him at trials. He's been crated before, but only in the car, since he's a tad reactive. He Often barks when I leave him, and he strains toward every dog we walk past. I've started breaking him in to the new crate, and he's fine with...
