  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a skittish dog that I adopted from the shelter. After bringing it home it warmed up to my roommate much more quickly than it did even to me. It has been about six months since the dog moved in and it has recently started growling, barking, giving side eye, and now attempting to bite...

  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    Sooo a little background, I’ve had dogs my entire life, but on my own I adopted a rescue pup (9weeks at the time) in September of 2020. He will be 8months in a few days (3/6/21). He’s a lab mix (they don’t know what his dad was) He goes #2 in my car maybe 6/7 times a month. I have cloth seats...

    Hello fellow puppy pals 👋🏻🐶 I’m having trouble trying to decide on which crate to use (and how many) for house breaking and travel. I’m quite torn; I was leaning towards getting a wire crate for housebreaking/sleeping/home use and a plastic crate for travel but could I get away with just using...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 4-year-old chocolate lab just recently learned how to get into the fridge. The latch wasn’t working for a while and he made his way into some thanksgiving leftovers easily, but now even though the latch is fixed he goes out of his way to get in (I’m assuming since he was “rewarded” it’s now...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I recently got the Mighty Paw Smart Bell for my dog to get her to stop scratching at the door (my poor, beat up door) and have been training with her for the last couple of days. She’s consistently touching the button with her nose but she’s not putting any pressure to it, which needs to happen...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    I am trying to train my 10-month-old puppy and we have some behavior problems and I asked Reddit's dog training sub and someone private messaged me that I should try Brain Training for Dogs. I am having a hard time finding reviews on it for some reason so I was just wondering if you guys heard...

  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    I’ve been having a very hard time training my husky (mix) to not chase every cat he sees. I don’t own a cat so I can’t exactly train him at home to be used to a cat. My dad has a few cats at his house but they’re terrified of dogs so I can’t train there either (plus I just don’t want to be there...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    My SO and I adopted a 1 yr old male Shiba back in July from someone who needed to re-home him. SO has had Shiba's before and I have had multiple spitz breeds so neither of us were too worried about having issues with him. Initially, we were dealing with idiopathic aggression (would randomly bite...
  14. 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...

  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, new dog owner here so maybe you'll see me a lot. Anyways, my 1 year old puppy destroys all her toys. Started out with plush because i thought they were cute but quickly learned they'll die within a day with my dog. Moved on to hard rubber toys but even those somehow end up with chunks...

    Hi all: I have a 3mo old cattle dog who is quick to learn commands, but I'm struggling with one thing: When I go to clip his leash onto his collar, he bites at my hand and squirms around trying to keep me from doing it. I've tried saying "NO" and stopping him, I've also tried holding a treat...
  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    My fiancé and I got our Rottweiler from a breeder when she was 8 weeks old (she is 7 months now) and she has always been a little bit sassy and definitely a confident dog, but nothing even close to what she’s been doing lately. Every time you try to grab her by the collar, move her in any way...
