  1. New Additions
    Hi, I have a very sweet border collie but lately I have been having trouble with something. She has become very protective about her stuff or place, so whenever I go picknicking or camping, and another dog walks by (sometimes she does this with humans as well) and comes bit too close, she...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    So last week I adopted a chihuahua/dachshund mix. He was nervous when I brought him home since my home was quite big and he was with his previous family for about three months and who knows how long with the last one. Now, he follows me everywhere and loves me to pieces. The problem is, my dad...

    Help! I have a 6 month old husky/corgi/heeler mix who is the sweetest dog ever about 80% of the time! The other 20% is naughty in normal puppy behaviors but is very aggressive about it. Im having issues because it is not all the time these behaviors occur, its just random times! She bares her...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 3 year old Black Lab/Coonhound mix, and he has recently started showing jealousy over me towards my boyfriend. . . or he's being protective/possessive over me, I'm not sure which. My boyfriend has lived with me and my dog for over a year now, and there has never been any issues...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a spayed female Aussie mix, about a year and a half old (she's a rescue), who loves other dogs, loves kids, and is very bonded to me. My boyfriend and I adopted her in June and she's in basic obedience classes, and we exercise her outside for at least two hours per day. In addition, she...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    I got a 9-month-old boxer/lab female pup 10 days ago. She's very intelligent and easily trained/obedient, but she guards me too much. From the second I brought her home, she immediately became overly attached to me and guarded me from my family and everyone else. I have been using treats or...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a foster dog. I've been doing rescue for 30 years and I have never seen this behavior. He has been returned twice because of it and also does it with me. He is 1 and half years old, neutered male and a Griffon mix. He bonds with one person in the home and growls at everyone else. It is...

    Hi there, Our Whippet/Doberman mix (3 years old) is causing problems on walks and in the home. On walks, she is constantly and highly vigilant, walking from one side to another, very erratic, barking very aggressively at other dogs, people, noises, shadows, etc. In the home, she is acting the...
  9. Dog Breeds
    I have been torn between Aussies and Brittanies, and have lately been told that I should consider either English or Welsh Springer Spaniels. If any of you could aid my decision, I would greatly appreciate it. I will be living in a small flat in an either urban or suburban area. This sounds...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 5 year old female chocolate lab/golden retriever mix (we think - she was part of an abandoned litter and i've never had her breed tested)...seems to be quite protective/aggressive. If we are both in my bedroom, she barks at anyone who enters. If a stranger comes into the house, even when...

  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    I currently have two dogs: a dachshund mix (11 months) and a pure pomeranian (4 months). I recently bought mini rawhide bones for my dogs to chew on. I gave them each a bone, but my dachshund chose to set aside the bone I gave him. Instead, he went and snatched my pomeranian's bone away. When...
