  1. Sudden aggressive fight/playing

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My 4 year old female staffy has become suddenly aggressive towards other dogs. It starts as playing and gets too rough very fast, chasing and bite/mouthing, never hard enough for blood. She is so fixed on getting the other dog, doesn’t hear “stop” “no “come” This has happened twice in the past...

  4. Canine good citizen

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello all!! Quick question. Is there a way to verify CGC certification other than the certificate that the AKC sends out? I am moving and the place asked if my pup had any kind of specilized training so I told them she’d passed her CGC test about a year ago (so proud of my girl) and they asked...

  6. How do I re-socialize my dog?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Howdy, this is my first post. I have an Australian shepherd, Charlie, that was well socialized as a puppy, but later on learned bad social habits, and he received trauma from an older dog in the same home as he got bigger. I am not the original owner so I'm not entirely sure of the dynamic in...
  7. 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...
  8. 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
    Hello! I have a very sweet two-and-a-half Shepard/Lab rescue who's a bit skittish but friendly that I've had since he was a puppy. I work from home so we're together most of the time, and he's pretty co-dependent. I have a roommate who he loves but only when I'm around. When I leave, he goes...
  11. How does a super frustrated-not-a-dog-person help SO with training terrified dogs

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I'm going to start this post controversially I am now the co-owner of two dogs that I do NOT like 80% of the time - I already had a dog, that I love. She's very small, her shedding is negligable due to her size, she understands what down means, she doesn't chew on things ever (I can't claim...

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

  14. 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. He makes poo and pee accidents on the tiled floor sometimes, but most of the time, he poops and pees...

    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.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    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...
  20. How to become a dog pack leader?

    Introductions

A dog who doesn’t respect her owner can show the attitude in many different ways; she might growl when you go to move her off the sofa or bed or when she has a toy or bone. She might snap at you when you try to groom her, or she may...
