  1. Housetraining
    We have a 5-month-old bernedoodle. I have 2 problems 1. He does not sleep all night. Last 2 weeks he has been good and waking up at 4:30. All of a sudden now he wakes up at a random time middle of the night. I started feeding him 2 times a day 7:00 AM and 4:30 PM. He went poop twice after...
  2. Puppy Help
    My puppy is 5 months old (got him at 8 weeks) and not once has he made it through the night without endless barking. We put him to bed around 10 and he wakes up every night around 3. We take him outside to use the bathroom (we don’t talk to him, pet him, or anything) then put him right back in...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    My wife and I adopted a 7 month old puppy 3 weeks ago (making her about 8 months now). The puppy came from a rural area but now lives in a big city. This has taken some adjusting (learning stairs, fear of traffic, etc.) but she is coming along and has become a lot more social. She was not a...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I have a 1 1/2 year old female German Shepherd who sleeps in bed with me every night. The other day, out of nowhere, when I shut my bedroom door, she had a sudden anxiety attack, scratching at my window and door trying to get out. Once I let her out of my room, she sleeps in the hallway or...
  5. Housetraining
    Hello everyone. I just have a question and would LOVE some advice! So currently my dog sleeps in his crate at night, & he has slept there since he was a puppy. I really want him to sleep out of his crate, and I have thought I could place a dog bed in the living room or the laundry room or so...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello. I have a three-year old unfettered male collie named Winston. He suffers from separation anxiety issues in general (when the family is away from home). We have made some progress in this area with crating, but still have a long way to go. However, an issue that has become a crisis for us...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I have a 13 months old german shepherd mix (she looks exactly like one but much smaller, around half a gsd :D). I got her when she was 5 months old from a shelter and she used to be very anxious and always stuck to my side. I worked on it, and finally after 2-3 months she started being much...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    My husband and I recently brought a new dog into the family. She is a 14 week border collie. We got her at 8 weeks. She is a happy, playful little girl with one exception. She growls and snaps at us when she is sleeping. This behavior is recent, maybe about a week? She sleeps in bed with us at...
  9. Housetraining
    Hi! I'm new to this forum, and in general new to the canine community itself. Just two days ago I brought home a precious little 8 week old Black tri Aussie puppy, and aside from crate training and the sleepless nights, she's adjusting so well and doing so good in her new environment. The only...
  10. New Additions
    Thanks for letting me be part of your community. My wife and I just adopted a 9 week old Husky/Australian Shepherd mix this week and we are working on crate training. It is going great with minimal crying or whining when it is time for bed. This issue I am running into is our work schedules...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    My American Eskimo puppy, Hunter, is almost 5 months and has been sleeping in his crate at night since when we got him at 6 weeks. In the beginning his crate was placed in my room, by my bed. In the last 2 months, he has been sleeping downstairs (in his crate) alone. He doesn't have much trouble...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    We've had a 45-lb hound mutt for about a year now. She's a rescue and we think around 5 years old. The past few months she's a few times acted aggressively toward us when we accidentally touched her while she's sleeping. (She likes to nap near us when we're home.) On these occasions she gets...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey All, I'm new to the forum (and dog ownership). Happy to be here. I'm hoping to get some help on somewhat urgent issue... We have a 10 month old, rescued, boxer/hound mix, puppy. She's a bit high strung and has a big personality, but she's sweet. For the last several months she has slept...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 3-year-old papillion has slept in the bed, along with our 3-year-old lab mix, for almost a year. The papillion is, by nature, more energetic than the lab but has never had trouble sleeping through the night. For some reason, the last 2-3 weeks he has begun "burrowing" and spinning...

    Hi, Cobber's 1 yr 3 mo old now. We've just gotten to the point where I feel I can trust him to be out and about in the house while I work in the afternoons - so for about a 6-hr stretch. So far, Cobber has slept in a crate by my bed basically every night of his life except the 2 months...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a three and a half year old shar pei mix. She's a great dog, very well behaved and generally easy going. However, for whatever reason, she has really bad problems with changes. I'd compare her to Raymond off of Rain Man. She doesn't like sleeping out of her cage, she knows when...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted a chihuahua, Barney, from a rescue two weeks ago. He is four years old and was being looked after by a fosterer, who let him sleep in her daughter's bedroom. Bad move! I don't like dogs upstairs, let alone in the bedroom. I already have a 12 year old chihuahua, Charlie, and thought...
  18. Puppy Help
    Theo has taken to waking up at 5am and hooting and hollering, sometimes for over 30 minutes (this happened this morning). We get up at 6am and feed him, so we'd love it if he could be quiet (maybe even sleep) that extra hour. This just began last week. Theo goes to bed at 9pm (he falls asleep...
  19. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey everyone, This is my first post here, though I've read old threads for very helpful advice many times! I need some advice on how to deal with my puppy in the mornings. Luna is a 10-week-old rescue mix (we think Pyrenees and Brittany). We've had her since she was 7 weeks. (A bit early, I...
  20. Dog Training and Behavior
    Just out of curiosity, has anybody ever dealt with a dog that seems to have night terrors or nightmares? My border collie occasionally just starts a howling fit in the middle of the night. It takes him a while to settle down from it too, he can't just snap out of it quickly. He howls and cries...
