  1. Dog doesn't pay attention to treats.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    So i got my chihuahua/rat terrier mix a week and a half ago. He's starting to improve in the potty training area, so I decided it's time to teach him to sit. I have watched several videos, but they dont help. My dog just doesn't seem to care enough about treats to keep him attentive and...
  2. Bad consequences if I don't find solutions - crate training, listening, aggression.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog has been getting more and more difficult. While she's improved in places (she doesn't hate men now, she knows the kitchen and bedroom are off limits, she sits at the door and waits until given permission to walk out of the house, no more shoe chewing, much better at not pulling on walks)...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My parents recently got a female 2 year old cairn terrier rescue called Sooty.

  8. Does my pup poop and pee to get treats?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I know it sounds like a silly question. It's his behavior that I have been observing since yesterday. So, my puppy, Milo was brought to our home just yesterday. He seems like a very smart pup.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a border collie who knows how to fetch and I would like to teach her to fetch ping pong balls, but every time she gets a hold of one she stalks off and instantly crunches it between her teeth.

    So my dog is about 4 years old. When I got him as a puppy I started crate training him but he ended up getting parvo (long story) and so I got really scared of losing him and overcompensated by spoiling him and letting him sleep in my bed. Now circumstances have changed where he needs to be...

    Dog Breeds
    I have an adult Shih Tzu. I read that you should make training fun, so I did. I took him for a walk (taught him to sit before crossing the street), worked on sit command, and did scent work. Now he refuses to stop training, and he's been whining at me for about twenty-five minutes now. What...
