    Dog Training and Behavior
    I got a German Shepard puppy about a year ago, now I already had a dog. She was larger than my GSD at the time despite only being a Pomeranian/Husky mix, though I knew that wouldn’t last forever.

    My new boyfriend has a 10 month old MALE Belgian Malinois. He's good with everyone, very friendly. When I go over, he jumps on me and nips at me. If my boyfriend leaves the room, the dog comes at me and chews my arm aggressively but looks playful. The more I try to get away and say "NO" the...

    I adopted a male pit/lab mix from the local shelter around 2.5 years ago. He's never been aggressive towards people, but my girlfriend has a male bernese mountain dog mix that he seems to randomly attack. They got along well for the first year after her dog moved in.
