  1. An indroduction and some questions.

    Introductions
    Hello! My name's Joy, I'm a young adult and I live with my husband and two dogs. Our first dog, Sky, we got from a shelter as my husband and I always wanted a husky since we were very young. He's a husky/Shepherd mix and we love him to death. Our other dog was hanging out on the property and we...
  2. Running beside bike

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello! So I'll just get right into it. My pup's main form of exercise is going on bike rides with me. Now, she LOVES bike rides, just about loses her little puppy mind about the idea of going on a bike ride. I don't really mind her getting excited (although my neighbors probably think I'm...
  3. Submissive/nightmare dog pulling on walks

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hiya, I'm looking for some advice regarding my 1 year old 35kg ridgeback X dog. Ever since he was a pup I've had a nightmare with him on walks with getting his attention. He is so unfocused on myself, and purely interested in other dogs. He will initially lay down submissively at ANY dog we see...
  4. My hound/spaniel mix puppy is having NEW leash problems - help please!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all. I posted last week about my new rescue pup (we think she's about 10 months) who was too scared and distracted on walks to go potty. Good news - she's got this potty thing down, for the most part! She's finally comfortable enough to go several times a day and even uses one little...
  5. My dog has separation anxiety during walks

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I just adopted a rescue and we've been working on his separation anxiety. We've eliminated most of it in-home but I have no idea how to approach his anxiety on walks. We go for 2 jogs a day for a total of an hour plus playtime at home so I'm sure it is not an issue of his energy level. He...
  6. Barking and pulling leash

    General Dog Discussion
    It's getting to a point where i don't know what to do with Ellie when we walk in public. She barks continuously, gets uncontrollable as soon as we see other dogs, and she pulls on her leash so hard she goes up on her hind legs. I've tried many different things such as being a tree, the 300 peck...
  7. I've 3d printed a new dog gadget and would love your opinion

    General Dog Discussion
    Hi fellow dog lovers! I have been working on a personal project the past year which is basically a small ball that you attach to your standard dog leash to provide another point to hold on to. The idea was born from wrapping my own dogs leash around my hand when I needed closer control -...

  9. Frustrated, really just need some encouragement

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey everyone, I just really could use some encouragement. Ever sense I brought Puk home (he is 5months now) I have worked steadily with him on not pulling on his leash. I told my husband what he needs to be doing when he walks Puk and thought he was doing it right. I (stupidly) didn't take the...
  10. Dog pulls towards other dogs, then growls

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I have an issue that I'm not quite sure how to deal with. It makes it difficult for me to take him for walks. My dog Taco, will pull very strongly towards a dog to play. If I stop him, he will then growl. His heckles always go up when he plays with other dogs. But he is too rough with...
  11. Loose leash training fallouts at night

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I am yet another person having trouble with loose leash walking. Raven is a four month old black lab-spaniel cross (she's a rescue, so we can't be sure about breed). She has been going to puppy kindergarden for 3 weeks now, and has learned to walk on a loose leash using the turn around when she...
