    Dog Training and Behavior

    I have a mixed breed rescue dog believed to be lab and beagle mix. Her name is Sunny Side Up aka Taxi. I have had her for about two years. I have always jumped my dogs, but Taxi is really scared of jumps at times. On a good day she can jump around 3 feet. But since she is so nervous I have...

    We have an 8 month old standard poodle, Charley. He is doing well with training and has learned several tricks and for the most part is well behaved (besides normal puppy chewing etc) when we are INSIDE. When we are outside in the yard, however, he starts pouncing and jumping and barking and...

    Hello all! Our 15 month old Brittany, Junot, has started back up on an old behaviour of his from puppyhood - attacking our mittens (and then coats, sleeves, hoods - he's got quite the vertical leap) when on or off leash. He's not an aggressive dog and has never drawn blood or bitten to the...
  7. How to stop puppy jumping when we're eating!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, hope someone can help. My 5 month Tibetan Terrier is literally a terror whenever food is about. I always feed him before we eat but if we are eating at the table he tries to jump on us or the table itself, or if we are having a cup of tea and biscuit on the sofa he's like a dog possessed...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Our 3 year old beagle/cattle dog mix is a recent rescue (we adopted her about 9 mo. ago) Within the last month or so she has been overly excited to go outside (who isn't!?) But the result has been her jumping at the door after we open it often onto us. We make her sit before we open the door...

  11. Puppy aggression with a toddler around

    Dog Training and Behavior
    As a bit of a background, our puppy Yona was left on our front doorstep and we decided to take her in. The vet said she was about 4-5 weeks old at the time, as she was still trying to nurse. I formula fed her, weaned her, walked her, and house-trained her as well as a young puppy could be...
  12. Rescued a stray dog with issues

    My dog is approximately 2 years old. The vet did not know what kind of dog he is . The dog warden called him a "spaniel mix" but he has the markings of a pointer and his body has the markings of a beagle only black and white. This dog must have been a stray for years because when I take him...

    New Additions
    Hello, I already have a 1 year old lab mix. And he is the best dog in the world! Very calm and well behaved. Two days ago I adopted a 3 year old golden doodle. He is very hyper due to the fact that his last owners kept him in the kennel for 20 hours out of the day. The two dogs have been...
  14. Agility Jumping Critique

    Dog Performance Sports
    I've recently started training my 6-year-old Miniature Schnauzer, Molly, some basic agility. Today, we focused on her jumping. As I'm not an expert in the subject matter, I was hoping that someone who is more informed could provide some constructive criticism on how we may improve in the...
