  2. What to do in response to growling?

    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...

  7. Puppy frustration or agression?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My four month old puppy is a mix breed and very sweet, playful, affectionate and friendly - until you try and get her to stop doing something she wants to be doing. For example, after a long walk she plunked down in the grass and it was next to impossible to get her up. Calling her, pulling on...

  11. My dog has a split personality: GOOD VS EVIL

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Okay, so I don't know if I'd call it a straight up split personality. But that's what it feels like. I have an eight month old neutered greyhound/lab cross who I've had since he was two months old. He's a very good dog; he was house trained early and learned to sit, shake and lie down early...

    I've got a 1yr. old lab/heeler mix, who up until yesterday has been nothing but friendly and gentle towards every living creature (including kittens and even a bunny). She eagerly greets new people, so much so that it's taken some training in patience to prevent her from running up to every...
