    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...

    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...

    What is the alternative to the alpha roll for social aggression ie dog growling and biting at you simply because he doesn't want to go outside or go to bed? I learned the alpha roll is outdated and am interested in learning a better method to get the dog to understand they are loved and safe...
  7. Training and Behavior Stickies
    I started training two dogs. One is a 3 months young puppy and the other 3 years old. I am starting with the markers "yes" and "free". They start interested and wanting the treats but 5 min later the dogs lose their interest in the treats and in the training. I only have one hour with them every...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    Based on observing my two dogs, a dachshund puppy and an adult lab, we've begun to wonder if their interactions with each other are influencing their bathroom habits in a negative way. The puppy refuses to go outside unless a family member or the other dog accompanies her and then will either...

    My very small, 3lb female, yorkie is very aggressive with my new male, golden/husky puppy. I can't take them on walks, I feel worried to leave them alone, and it is a constant that she growls, barks, and nips at him when he comes near her. Usually it starts with him trying to play with her by...
