pulling on leash

  1. In search of training tips for over excited dog on leash

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all. I have a 2 year old pitmix - Luna - who we adopted around 8 months ago. She is generally great and loves almost all people and other dogs.

  7. Training Two Dogs

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi! I have a 4 year old 8lb Terrier-mix, and a 3 year old 25lb Schipperke-mix who I love and adore. Life was so much easier when I just had the Terrier - our walks were educational and fun...I could really work on her behavior. Then I fostered Pumpkin (the Schipperke-mix) and could not get...
