  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi Everyone. I have got a slight issue with training a dog. So the dog is under constant monitoring and goes to training sessions. But sometimes the instinct takes over i guess or if he sees something he likes he starts to take off. At the moment 2 of the walks we are doing are in the dark as...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Disclaimer: I am 14. I want help with training my dog. Please don't attack me, I am doing my best. Trying to do what your parents expect (old fashioned ways to train dogs)and what overprotective people on the internet expect is really hard. Please be patient. I am trying my best here. I came on...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    I'm sure anyone with a hound is a familiar with this story, but up until this dog I'd only had spaniels primarily and all my dogs were raised from puppyhood which made consistent, firm training a bit easier. I have a very sweet and wonderful and rescue dog of indeterminate breeding -- but best...

    Hi everyone! Does anyone have advice? My puppy has been picking up rocks, twigs, leaves, garbage, anything since we brought her home, which I knew was normal so I would go and take it out of her mouth with a firm "no" and I had no complaints but now, she picks up something and then takes off and...

    I caught him, but it sure wasn't easy. Total leash clip failure, and I still don't know what happened because we'd made it almost all the way around the block - his harness and the leash seemed very secure. It's a spring clip, like a carabiner where the straight edge just pushes in and springs...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi - we adopted our dog, Cody, a little over a year ago when he was 2 1/2-3 years old. He was abused and was incredibly timid and insecure when we found him at the shelter - he's the sweetest dog I've ever met and has transformed into a happy, confident, well-socialized dog. His biggest problem...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog is about 2 years old and she has run away a few times, my dad is very aggressive with her. She ran away today and when he got her (about half a mile away) he grabbed her collar, while constantly yelling at her, she bit him on the arm (didn't break the skin) and he was convinced she...
