  1. General Dog Discussion
    We have a small mutt (half rat terrier half jack russel we think), and she is terrified by anything that beeps. We have an electronic toaster that beeps when it pops up, and several other appliances that beep as well. Whenever it beeps, she runs into my bedroom far away from the kitchen (where...
  2. Dogforum Community Rules
    I'm new to this forum but was hoping to find some advice on how to manage our doxie. We got him when he was 10 months old, he was very fearful and unfortunately he didn't seem to have had much/any socialization. He has been with us for 6 months now and has shown improvement but there are some...
  3. Dog Grooming
    Hello everyone, I can't find anything on the internet to help my situation so I'm here in hopes that someone can help. My dog is a very aggressive dog. He's usually very sweet but when he's afraid he becomes really hostile, which is why I have trouble grooming him. He's been very matted and...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 10 year old Basset Hound. She has always been scared of thunderstorms and fireworks but she has gotten markedly worse the past 4 months. We used to walk around the block every night. One night a few months ago we were walking and she heard 2 loud pops, like gun shots. She immediately...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    My partner and I adopted a rescue this past Saturday. Moose is an 8 month old 18lb shepherd mix from Tennessee where she was found with her sister in a shed. When we first brought her home, we introduced her to our 2 housemates outside and she was good with them. About two days ago she has...

    Hi all, I wonder if you could give me some pointers. Adopted a 5-6 month old rescue lab/hound mix 2 weeks ago. She has had tendencies to lay down in the garden and not want to budge. Garden is large lawn section which turns into a wooded section, all unfenced. We keep her on a 30ft leash to...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    Good afternoon everyone, I've done a lot of browsing and I can not find an article or advice that particularly pertains to my situation. I am really in need of some advice if you have the time! In March of 2019 I adopted a month old female Lab mix at the local pet shelter/medical facility. I...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have adopted an English Setter mix from a local shelter. She is about 6 months old. The first day I left her in my laundry/mudroom while I was away at work (about 5 hours) before returning for lunch break. She completely destroyed the room... scratched walls, chewed the door and windows...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    My husband and I rescued our sweet pitbull/sharpei mix, Daisy, 2 years ago at roughly the age of 5. It wasn't until long into having her as a part of our family that we noticed she would randomly have anxiety attacks where she would come to us shaking and panting, sometimes trying to find a...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    A few months ago I met a young dog (they said 11 months) at a local rescue group. She is the sweetest dog but she has high anxiety and it took her weeks to come out of her shell for me. At the time we got her, the kids were in school. School is now out for summer and she either hates or is...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Greetings all, I'm new here and joined because I need some advice and perspective. Here's the issue. Our 1 year old rescue is starting to bite our dog walker and is generally nervous and fearful of people (children included) other than myself and my husband. At this point she hasn't been able...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    This past October my husband and I relocated to Minneapolis with our 3 year old male pitbull. We moved in with roommates that have 2 dogs. It was a new house to all of us, but the 2 dogs got there about a week before ours did. These two dogs are female, one 50 lb mix (Doberman mix? Very sleek)...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog is a 6 years old labrador cross. She was rescued from the street when she was 3 months. She's lived with my boyfriend and I since then. She often barks and lunges at people and dogs who approach me. She doesn't defend my boyfriend in the same way though & sometimes seems to think even he...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all. I'm new to the forum, and I came here to hopefully get some advice about a situation with my girlfriend's dog that is causing both of us a lot of stress. In short, her dog is absolutely terrified of me in particular, but she's also not comfortable anywhere, really. When I'm around, she...

  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    I've had my labradoodle puppy living with me for a month now, and she has just turned three months old. She is very smart and catches on with training quickly. But I have a problem. She is extreamly nervous and skittish towards new people, actually towards anyone besides me and my brother and...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    Took my dog out back to go pee real quick. My husband(who is away for military training at the moment) was on the phone with me at the same time and all of a sudden my dog was really pulling to just go. I thought he just really wanted to pee in another spot and I just disregarded it until he ran...

    Hi all, I've got a gorgeous new rescue dog called Lola, 5 year old Podenco Orito. I've had her nearing 3 weeks now and she's been brilliant. The only problem I'm having is her fear of men, specifically my male housemate. Whenever he moves near her or reaches for something near her she'll...
