  1. Growling out of nowhere

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a very calm and friendly Yorkshire terrier. But lately he's been doing this thing. Ever since I started having longer hours at university whenever I arrive and meet him at home or in the car he growls in a low voice, staying still and stares at me but never takes a step to attack. It's...
  2. Several behavior problems with adopted dog

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I apologize in advance for this being so long.... So the last month or so we've had our dog we've been over the moon. She's beautiful, affectionate, and a great dog all around. She's a 3-year-old rescue pup which seems to be something of a brittany and cocker spaniel mix. She is very high...
  3. Dog Barking and Growling at Strangers

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog was very worried about people and new things in general as a pup. We slowly introduced him to people with positive reinforcement (treats during introductions and pats). He has gotten better, but it takes him a while to fully warm up to people. Once he is comfortable he will be all over...
  4. My GSD is so peaceful against other dogs' attacks

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My 13 months old GSD is not coward with other dogs but he's so peaceful, inoffensive, and often defenseless against other dogs' aggressiveness, bites, and attacks. He doesn't get angry easily, all what he wants is to play with them. At present, I don't have time for professional dog training...

    Hello, Frankie is a 1 year old male miniature pinscher. He is VERY lovable to family and friends. The only issue I am currently having with him is his behavior while we are on walks. He will growl and lunge at ANY stranger that walks by us on walks without provocation (trying to pet...
  6. My dog keeps growling at the dog that bit him

    Dog Training and Behavior
    OK, so from the title you might think "Well DUH, why shouldn't he?", and yes, I get not liking someone who hurt you, but it's a bit uncomfortable for us, and here's why. We live in a neighborhood with a lot of dogs – One neighbor has 3 labs, two have mixes, one has two, one has one… etc). And...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone, my boyfriend and I recently adopted a beautiful 10 month old female labelled "pit mix" but she seems to be any combination of lab / pointer / bc / pit. She is an absolute angel, playful, well behaved, and very obedient ( always receiving compliments on her behavior :D.) After a few...

    Puppy Help
    We just got our puppy (11 weeks old) a day ago and he sits up against the wall the whole time with his head up against the wall as we pet him.
