  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, Me and my sister just re-homed this 8 month old husky mix. He's been really great up until a few days ago where he would start mouthing very hard and tugging on clothes really hard. We tried turning around to ignore him to send a message that it is not okay behavior but he starts tugging...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I'm new here and I'm looking for any advice available. I have a 1.5 yr old labrador retriever/bernese Mountain female (she's ~92 lbs) that loves the water.

    Hello, I have an Australian Shepard and Poodle mix, about 12 weeks old. Day 3 at our home today and the puppy finally ate almost a quarter cup of food. Seems like it's not enough to me but I've never had a dog that wasn't very enthusiastic about feeding time. This dog takes 2 or three bites...

  7. Puppy Help
    Hey guys, Vent/question! I have my 7 month old puppy. I've been reading stuff on here about teaching puppies not to mouth/bite and putting all the suggestions into practice, with varying levels of success. It just seems like he hasn't really picked up on the bite inhibition. I don't know if I...
