  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    I’ve had Brady for 6 months now and he destroys everything when left alone. He has eaten an Apple Watch, my dresser, socks, blankets, a mattress, etc. He is crate trained and is crated when left unattended; however, I want to be able to let him lose with my other dog so isn’t confined all the...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey everyone. I am posting here as sort of a last ditch effort. My dog Reagan has been slowly losing her mind over the last few months. What started off as separation anxiety turned in to destructive behavior. She has always been a bit of a nervous dog but never anything we couldn't manage...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, So, my fiance and I are trying to figure out combining our dogs into the same house holds...and I'm finding that I'm really concerned in some areas. I have one small dog, a 9lb miniature aussie, and he has a couple of rescues, a mixed lab at 60 lbs, and a mixed rat terrier...around 30 lbs...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted a Husky, German Shepherd mix (some Rottweiler via Embark test), Bear, in November 2018 and it's been a really big challenge for us. Before leaving for work, my husband usually takes him and my lab for a long walk (2km/1.2 miles). When we leave for work, we leave him in our dining...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    My boyfriend and I are proud, loving, (astonished, helpless) owners of a 5 year old red nose pit bull named Shila. My boyfriend has had her since she was 3 months old, and she has never been spayed. Shila adores both of us- the problem comes in with our roommates. A couple of days ago, for...
  6. Dog Gear and Supplies
    I have a year old chocolate lab who destroys any toy I get her, we have a few that she hasn't destroyed yet (thank the Lord), I was wondering if anyone knows a good brand that is made for big dogs that can last a long while. She loves balls and tug ropes but destroys tennis balls in 5 minutes...
  7. Introductions
    Hi everyone, this is my first post on dogforum :). Hopefully I can get some much needed advice! I have two males dogs, both rescues: a 3 year old 25-30 lb pug/pom/toy fox/pointer mix and a 7 month old ACD/Staffordshire (40ish lbs). I love them both immensely but am having trouble with the...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 10yr old male Rat Terrier/Dochsund mix. He's normally very sweet, rarely gets in trouble (and if he does it's normally for using the restroom in the house), he barks at the doorbell/when someone knocks. August he had an inflamed disk in his neck that went away after the vet gave him an...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 9 month old chocolate lab/brittany spaniel mix, just in the last couple weeks she started chewing things up when she is home alone. When people are home she does not even look at anything to chew on or destroy but when everyone leaves she has been destroying our stuff. Not sure why this...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Our dog has just turned 1 year. We arent sure of her breed but vet guesses some kind of terrier/border collie mix.She has always been a GREAT dog. Very smart and a fast learner. She is potty trained and has a doggy door that lets out to a very large fenced in area. She has never been destructive...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    *My husband and I adopted a Dachshund, Oreo, in 2009 who was previously a puppy mill breeding dog. Great dog, although very shy, never barked or played with toys, got along great with our 1st dog. *We adopt a 3rd dog and they bonded. She taught Oreo how to be a REAL dog - how to play with toys...
  12. Dog Gear and Supplies
    I have an EXTREMELY hyperactive, destructive German Shepard/ Lab Mix. I've tried various toys but he destroys them in minutes. I've found a variety of "tough toys online" but was wondering if anyone has had luck with anything specific? I need to keep his mind busy throughout the day... he gets...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 5 year old male pit/lab mix, who has recently lost his ever loving mind. I adopted him about 9 months ago. I know he has been through at least 3 homes in his life, possibly more. When I first adopted Lou, he was great. No bad behaviors, other than his leash manners, which we fixed very...
