  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a bipolar rascal! He is Dobi, 1.3-year-old 40kg West/East Siberian Laika Cross. Ever since we got him at 3 months old he has been a handful behavior wise. He is obedient and very kind natured when he wants to be but he is just extremely stubborn and hard headed. So the thing is, he draws...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Bruno is my first rescue dog. He is a pit mix, about 3.5 years old, and not neutered yet(will be neutered next week.) He was rescued from a dog hoarding case and it seems like he really hates other dogs or is fearful of them. It's a constant struggle trying to walk or run with him when other...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    Ozzy is a 5 year old 100 pound Black Lab x Husky and very strong. He has always been a leash puller but over the last year he has picked up some awful habits! During specific spots on our walk he all of a sudden pulls/lunges with one big jerk and crosses the street, when I attempt to correct the...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, I'm hoping someone can help. I have a Spanish water dog and have had him since he was about 14 weeks old. He had a rough start in life and was dumped in a bin with his siblings shortly after he was born (In Spain, Malaga). He was then rescued by a lady who kept them until she found homes...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 1 year old Labrador/Golden retriever mix has not been socialized well (I think), and I'm at my wit's end! She walks on a leash well until we see a person with a dog, then she slams her butt onto the ground and waits until the dog is close. Then she lunges so hard towards the dog that my arm...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a two year old Border Collie. His problem behaviors come out the worst with my dad. The dog adores my dad, and constantly wants attention from him--to be petted, or played with. But, he also acts the worst with my dad. For instance, when we take him for a walk. When we need to run, to...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    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...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    I recently rescued a dog from FB that appeared to be in a dangerous situation. I have had him abouy 15 days. When I met the woman he was covered in fleas and ticks and filthy dirty. I took him home and bathed him. Took him to groomer next day to have him properly cleaned. I had him neutered 9...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a big female Newfie mix rescue - about 4. She developed (or it was lying dormant) aggression with certain new dogs she meets. Whether at the dog park or on a walk, she has to get up in their face and dominate them. As you can imagine, some dogs don't like that. And there can be tension...
  10. Introductions
    Hello everyone. Just wanted to introduce our dog and get some feedback on what we have to work on. I pretty much threw a giant jumble of facts about what we've learned about him in the past year, but I would love for any advice. Name: Cliffy. Sex: Male (fixed). Weight: 10-12 pounds. Age: 3...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone, I got a six month old Golden Retriever puppy just four days ago as a rescue. A friend of a friend gave him to me because the owners couldn't handle him and were keeping him locked in a laundry room. Probably 90% of the time, he's the perfect dog. In four days he's learned sit...
  12. Dog Gear and Supplies
    I have recently discovered Gentle Leaders while browsing through the aisles at the local Petsmart. Having no previous exposure to them, I was unsure if they would be beneficial or harmful to my dogs. Both of my Miniature Schnauzers have a tendency to pull on their leashes, quite hard. They...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    I read several posts here and other articles that weren't related to this website about leash training, and I've yet to find something that alleviates every problem that we have. My dog is a three year old yorkie poo that I got from someone trying to give her away. She was used to a backyard...
