  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    My pup is almost 2 years old. He’s always been super friendly and playful with other dogs of all sizes and ages. My dog is a very small dog (Chihuahua mix) but he would chase dogs much bigger than himself and have a very fun time chasing each other around. But since about 2 weeks ago I noticed...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    It all started when my dog was young. At 6 months old a lady wanted us to have him and took him to a local bank not too far from my house. I ended up walking there to pick him up but when we actually tried walking home with him I noticed how he wouldn’t move. I had to carry him home because he...

    Hi Everyone, I'm new here because I would like some advice on what dog to get. I had dogs growing up but I have never had one as an adult with kids of my own. When I was young we had what seamed like the perfect dog: Tally an Australian Shepard. She was sweet, wise, quiet, smart, loving, had...

  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    This is my first ever dog and I'm not quite sure what the appropriate response to this is. My wife and my dog and I all like snuggling on the couch together. Our dog is always just laying near us anyway, sometimes she'll lay on our lap or somewhere else on the couch. If we need to readjust or...

    Is your dog giving you deaf ears? When this happens, avoid repeating the command over and over and imposing yourself until you get a response; instead, take a step back and consider the following scenarios which are some of the most common issues encountered when training dogs. 1) Low Value...

    If you are not your dog’s leader, you will not be respected. A dog who doesn’t respect her owner can show the attitude in many different ways; she might growl when you go to move her off the sofa or bed or when she has a toy or bone. She might snap at you when you try to groom her, or she may...

    I have a year and a half old, neutered male Australian shepherd. He is SUPER friendly with humans and dogs. He's that dog who wants to kiss everyone he meets and tries to catch peoples' eyes as they walk past. We have done some training (leashing for greetings, knee up, standing on the leash...

    You know smart is the new sexy. It is more true when it comes to adopt a dog that you are going to have a long relationship with. If you are looking for a dog that follows your commands instantly, understands you better, acts according to the situation and barely puts you in an awkward...

    Hi all, I have an extremely sweet lab/pit mix that's about 2 years old named Luna. She is the sweetest dog and loves other dogs. She is usually one to wine and initiate playtime with other dogs. However, she will sometimes lightly growl at other dogs, but only when I am sitting down and...

    Hi, I'm here to just ask for some advice because my dog keeps going upstairs and going into rooms getting into stuff. My dog is not supposed to be upstairs unless I say he can, sometimes I let my dog upstairs in my room with me when my room is clean. But other times when my dog is unwanted...

    intriguing hypothesis: "Y Modern Wolves R Poor Models For Dog Domestication" http://wp.me/phvWb-9W1 brief synopsis - the Coppingers theorize that dogs weren't the result of kidnapping & rearing wolf-pups, then culling aggro or timid offspring & allowing human-affiliative progeny to breed -...

    First off, thank you to everyone who answered my other posts - the help on these forums in this first week has been crucial. We adopted Bailey a week ago from the shelter - an 8 month old Lab mix. We have a 5 year old at home (Penny) who's a smaller doxy mix. So far the only aggression between...

    Hi All! My fiance and I just adopted our second pup from a shelter 4 days ago. She's an 8 month old lab mix, very affectionate, sweet, and calm (for her age). We've had Penny (our 5 year old doxy mix) for about 4 years, and she was a spoiled brat only dog. The dogs are doing pretty well for...

    Hi all! I recently adopted a dog (she's a shih-tzu mix, about one year old) from a shelter about a week and a half ago. She was a stray before, and had only been in the shelter about a week before I got her. Unfortunately, I adopted her a week before I moved out of town, and now I'm trying to...

    Hello all, So, we have four papillons. We recently had a tick problem that my family was at first handling by simply pulling the ticks off of the dogs daily/nightly. Two of the dogs who are typically grouchy would get mad when we would pull the ticks off, the sweet dog who loves everyone and...
