  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Last month, my husband and I adopted an 8-week old chocolate lab-mix puppy (he is now 11 weeks old) from a local dog rescue. The foster told us that the mother had died while giving birth to her pups, and told us that the only big problem we'd encounter would be constant mouthing, as our puppy...

    We adopted a very sweet Pyr mix from a rescue organization. They think she's about 1-1/2 years old, and she has had at least one litter. It had been clear she was mistreated. She's pretty shy and she quickly blanches when one of us makes an unexpected motion toward her or a loud noise. She...

    We have a new beagle / hound mix (we think) puppy about 13 weeks old. We have had her almost a month now. For the first few weeks she did a great job with sleeping through the night. Recently she has developed a habit of waking us up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. I...

    Hello- I have a 6 mo old puppy. She is a wild child, constantly wanting to jump on people. We are in a training class right now and trying to get her to greet people appropriately. However, she doesn’t greet ME appropriately yet, which I am diligently working on. There are quite a few stores...

    We have just brought home an 8 wk. old, female English Pointer and are introducing her to a 16 wk. old GSP/English pointer mix. Things did not go as smoothly as we expected yesterday and I have been reading all about how this was a bad idea. We are committed to making this work. We are 2...

    So i have a 5 month old Belgian Malinois, and I take him to the dog park everyday but he usually doesn't interact with the dogs. When a new dog comes up to him for the first time they sniff each other and once the dog comes back after a few minutes he tends to bark at them. He's very social with...

    We recently got our Bull Arab Mix, Grayson, about a month ago and we love him so much, but since we've had him we've had so many rough nights of him barking/whining/scratching at the door and it's given me horrible anxiety during his bed time. He's sleeping in the laundry room with his own bed...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 12 week old Dachshund puppy and he is terribly clingy. If I sit on the floor, he automatically crawls into my lap. Even if I move him back to the floor, he will just crawl back in. He follows me from room to room. It's been very difficult leaving him to go to work. He howls when I shut...

    Our Beagle/Lab mix Bowie continues to relieves himself on our floors even when we take him outside after feeding, naps, etc.. Sometimes he even waits until we're back inside before he does his business. What sort of schedule should i get him on to fix this? Some advise would really help.
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    I recently adopted a puppy from a neighboring state. The rescue told me he was cat tested, and that he was interested, but 'didn't really' chase or anything, and forgot about the cats when they left the room. I did tell them I have one skittish cat, so was a bit worried about the...
