  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    so I just got a 7-month-old beagle/chihuahua mix about three days ago. he is adorable and we absolutely want to make him a part of the family, but there are some problems that we have noticed. 1. He bites, a lot. it's a continuous problem with him. anytime I or one of my family members sit down...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    My puppy is 6 months and has some pretty serious separation anxiety. It's to the point that I can't leave the room without him getting upset, and FORGET leaving the house. If I leave he barks nonstop and I live in an apartment building, so you can see why that's a problem. He doesn't bark any...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    I got my 1 and a half year old Pekingese mix back in November 2020 and he truly exceeded expectations when I got him. He wouldn’t tear anything he wasn’t supposed to and wouldn’t even bark! However the main issue lies when he is alone. He ended up escaping his old crate (he was crate trained)...

    I rescued my pup this past November. I know little about her past other than she is about 4 years old and was a stray who was found with her litter of puppies. She has shown some mild fear/anxiety issues since having her but overall is a great, well behaved dog. We had a particularly stressful...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone I’m completely new to the website but am looking for some advice. We have a beautiful 8 month old cockapoo. He is a very good boy and completely adorable but really struggles being alone. We started leaving him alone for short amounts of time and slowly built up to an hour. We left...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 8 month old exotic bully! Now I have several obstacles I am having trouble with. The main 1 is my dog using the bathroom in the house. And for some reason he pees on the beds! If you let him alone in any bedroom in my house he will jump up and pee. Now I also have a 2 year old pit bull...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi! Our 8-month-old puppy (Tony) becomes very anxious when we leave the house. Tony is a maltipoo. Being aware that he might need to spend 4 hours alone once the pandemic is over (if we go out for dinner, for example), we started his 'home-alone' training 1.5 months ago. He gets plenty of...
  8. New Dogs and Puppies
    Hi there! We have a gorgeous 14 week Cavapoo called Jessie, we got her at 9 weeks, it took her the first week or so of getting used to her crate at night, after trawling through advice online we made sure we did all the right things; encouraged her into her crate in the day time, put...
  9. Dog Gear and Supplies
    I have a dog with severe separation anxiety. She is currently in a crate that has to be screwed together and is just a pain to take a part and travel with. I am looking for a heavy duty crate that can collapse without having to be unscrewed and that I can put into my car for traveling. Please...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi there! I need to start weaning a dog off of my presence. About a week ago, my parents got a rescue dog to be a companion for their older dog, and while everything is going well, the new dog has completely bonded with me and gets incredibly anxious when I'm not around. He thinks he is my dog...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    New to the forums. First post, so take it easy with the rubber glove. I have a nine year-old Carolina Dog that has developed such an attachment to me it seems as if he will now do nothing without me. I had heard that these dogs develop an incredible bond with their owner, but this is getting a...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    My husband and I returned back to work and now my dog is barking excessively. To the point that the office called us stating that there are multiple complaints about his barking. We both leave at 8am until 5:30pm so his barking starts early and we don’t want to be those owns who neglect their...
  13. Dog Health and Food
    Hi guys! My dog (2 1/2 year old german shepherd-blue heeler mix) has had pretty bad separation anxiety in the past. She was a rescue and when we first got her, if we left her alone, she would destroy anything and everything while howling up a storm. We ended up replacing a couch and a...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    EDIT: Not leaving her alone ever is not an option. She is already left home very rarely but we need to work on her SA, not just never leave her alone. Thank you for all comments but please focus on ways people have overcome SA rather than suggesting we never leave her alone ever. Thank you...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    My beagle mix is destroying things every time I leave the house. I put her in her crate when I leave and she has bent bars of the crate and broken the bottom plastic tray. I put her crate up against the wall but every time I get home she is across the room. I feel like I’ve tried everything...
  16. Introductions
    Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be here! My partner and I have a male 9 year old Heeler/Terrier mix named Petey, who is wonderful. Smart, funny, came to us as a rescue when he was three months old (we had a 9 year old rescued Yellow Lab at the time, so he had a good teacher). Petey has been an...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey friends, About a month ago, my partner and I rescued our two year old shih tzu. He was in an abusive situation where the owner was hoarding dogs and was missing an eye before animal services got him. Long story short, this dog has known company around him at all times, quite possibly since...
  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, This is gonna be a long post so I hope someone takes the time to read and help us and that it all makes sense. I just adopted a male husky mix from a shelter a few months ago and we are having problems with the crate and leaving him alone. He is 11 months old and a very sweet boy but a...
