  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a two year old pit. He’s attached to me by the hip and lately he’s been growling at my husband. It used to be just when he was in the bed laying with me and now it’s if my husband starts to play with him also or sometimes if he’ll pet him. Everything we’ve read said not to discourage the...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I'm currently doing a project on animal behaviour with my main focus being dogs. I was just wondering if this hypothetical scenario was a negative reinforcement. I ask my dog to tap a bucket once to get a reward at the sound of the clicker. Although my dog doesn't hear the clicker and...

    Hi! We have a ~7 month old mongrel(7.5kg), who lived his life outside in a ~15 m2 crate. We always played with him, walked him almost daily but recently we got him indoors.

  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 10 month old mixed puppy. I've done a lot of research of both of the breeds that she is mixed with and I still don't understand what her problem is. She is a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog mixed with a Basset Hound. Very odd mix I know. She is super protective over me. She barks at...

    Our dog won't let us leave the house and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We have a 5 year old Golden Doodle, who is a family dog living in a house of 4. In the past several months he has developed a behaviour where he doesn't let people leave the house. He lets people leave for...
