  1. Dog Breeds
    I've been having a ton of fun with Biscuit. Agility has been soooo awesome! I'm wishing I'd started teaching him (with no jumping, of course) agility from the day I picked him up. And now I want a puppy. :rolleyes: It's been so long since I've had a furry little puppy in the house. Biscuit was...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello! We just got a new foxhound puppy who is very hyper and highly motivated by food. We are trying to teach her "sit" but when we have a treat in our hand she freaks out. Clawing at our hand, biting, jumping, barking, howling... I'm not really sure how to teach her. With our previous dog we...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    My fiance and I have had Albert since he was 9 weeks old and he just turned 5 months the other day. We live in an apartment together, with no other animals. We had a rough start with certain behaviors (barking and peeing for attention and demanding our food) but he has progressed significantly...

    Just wondering. Please feel free to share whatever you'd like! Here's me rambling about my puppy... just because i'm pretty much obsessed with him and I love reading about other herding dog experiences. Dexter's about 12 weeks old now and he's been a part of the family for two weeks as of...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    I need some help. I have a 6 month Vizsla who has a lot of energy! When my roomates get home, he absolutely loses it. He goes crazy. Jumps, runs around in circles, zumies, jumps from couch to couch, etc. I've started putting him on a leash upon their arrival. This has helped a bit...
  6. New Additions
    I adopted this little cutie last weekend. Her mom is a very petite(~35lbs) cattle dog who was dropped off at the local animal service before giving birth so no one knows what the father was. Any ideas on what she's mixed with? She is very smart and gets bored very easily when Im not actively...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi guys - new to the forum. I've got an 8-week-old puppy who I've had for 4 days. She was shy and timid at first, but now I'm seeing her true colors come out :D She woke up this morning on a rampage. I tried to maintain routine - out for the bathroom (which she didn't use) in for breakfast...

    My dog knows the word "walk" and this is his reaction: If my family are talking about who is going to take him out for a walk, we have to spell out the word. It is now a matter of time until he picks up the spelling! He loves walks, because he is a very good hunter. He often catches...

  10. Dog Breeds
    Hello! I have, in the last week, re-homed a 15 month old Labrador from a farmer who didn't want him any more because he wasn't quite right to be shown. He is the first male dog I have owned and is currently still intact although I've been told that taking him to be castrated could help...

  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a (nearly) 2 year old border collie cross who I inherited after nobody else could take him. He was a beautiful natured dog and loved people but he had some serious problems! He had never been socialised and had some very real and often scary fear aggression problems, he was impossible to...
  13. General Dog Discussion
    Greetings~ Just a quick question about dog temperments or if this behaviour is unique to this boxer. Occasionally the dog will suddenly grow incredibly hyperactive and is likely to hurt himself and anyone around as he sprints and jumps around the house, smashing into doors and walls. Any time...
