  1. My new (adult) Shiba won't stop whining/panting at night.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I got a Shiba about a week and a half ago, now named Sophie. She's 4 years old. I believe her previous owners may have been abusive (as he did admit to barely feeding her, not even naming her, and pulling her choke collar hard when she wouldn't listen to him). The first few days she would lay...

    My mom's dog Penny has hereditary seizures.

  9. 9 Week old husky, terrified of hands.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I just got a husky puppy about a week ago. Hes 9 weeks old. He's very afraid of people picking him up and so far he's really only gotten used to me being around him. He was never socialized and not treated well (i'm guessing) Since we rescued him from a puppy mill. He loves other dogs, and he's...

  14. Puppy wont stop screaming.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My Boston Terrier is a little over a year now. If he sees another dog or person when we are out walking or anything, he starts screaming and we can't get him to stop.
