  1. Dog v stressed when we go out on a walk

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My parents recently got a female 2 year old cairn terrier rescue called Sooty. She's a very loving dog and did well at doggy training but she is quite anxious and stressed, particularly when leaving the house to go on a walk. Whenever we get the leads ready she goes beserk, barking and attacking...

    Hi, everyone, I am a first-time dog owner, and adopted a dog a week ago. My dog is a 1.5-yr-old male corgi. He adjusts to the new home well and seems to have a good time. The only problem I have right now is as follows: I walk him twice per day, in the morning and in the late afternoon. Each...
  3. when to give up on a walk.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a shelter heeler/border collie mix who is very timid. Spent 18 of first 21 months of her life in a shelter. She has shown a lot of growth. She is on 20mg of Flouxetine for anxiety. Frequently on morning or evening walks she does fine until spooked by a loud car or voices. At that...
  4. Lost Dog

    General Dog Discussion
    Yesterday I took my dog for a walk. It was all well and good until I come across a group of boys with a dog that isn't theirs. Somehow this dog (intact male, Labrador pit bull mix) got away from his owner. These boys give him to me, saying they know the owner and will go get him. I don't think...
  5. Difference between sniffing for fun and sniffing for pooping/peeing?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, We recently got a 1.5 year old female Saint Bernard from a rescue. She does not have any former training, so I'm starting with that now. She is improving the walking without pulling. We live in a rural area, so lots of smells from wild animals on the road. Before leaving for the...

  7. Rescue with severe anxiety - should I carry him outside?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone, A week ago I adopted an incredibly sweet 7 month old rescue. Even though he's not that old yet, he has been severely abused and is very distrusting of people. He was imported two weeks before I adopted him and he came in with his brothers and sister. He is great with dogs, but just...
  8. Sint bernard puppy doesn't want to walk

    New Additions
    Hi guys, Last week, we got a 3/4 Sint Bernard 1/4 Newfie puppy. He is 10 weeks old today. He is super cute but also very stubborn and starting to show dominance. He does listen to basic commands (after 2 days he sits, gives paw, comes to you etc.) but we have a drama when it comes to walking...
  9. My dog refuses to potty in her own yard?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello and thank you for reading :) I got my chihuahua / beagle mix from a local animal shelter about a year ago. She's a very good dog, mostly obedient, she's also pretty smart (we counted, she knows 37 words). However, there's just one problem. Ever since I got her, she has not pottied in...
  10. my dog is very aggressive to walk

    Introductions
    I have a 7 year old border collie, who is a dream in the house. Very clever, listens to all commands etc. As soon as i put her collar on she is crazy, a totally different dog. When we get out she pulls very hard, she is very excitable. This is an issue in itself, but it is something which can be...

  12. 4 month-old American Eskimo barking on walks?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hunter is a little over 4 months old, and we've started taking him on very short walks. We live at a dead end in our neighborhood, and I am able to successfully walk him about two houses down, to the corner of our street. He stays by my side and looks up at me frequently for treats. He behaved...
  13. How many miles is too much for a dog?

    General Dog Discussion
    Hi there, I'm new here. I'm posing this question here as I just can't seem to find a good enough answer online. I have a 5 year old chocolate labrador and my husband is going on a 26 mile walk/hike in a couple days and wondering if he should take our dog. It's going to be 12 miles of walking &...
  14. My dog knows the word "walk".

    General Dog Discussion
    My dog knows the word "walk" and this is his reaction: If my family are talking about who is going to take him out for a walk, we have to spell out the word. It is now a matter of time until he picks up the spelling! He loves walks, because he is a very good hunter. He often catches...

    Hi all, This is my first time using this forum and I'm hoping to get some advice. We have a 2 year old Chihuahua-terrier mix. She's the sweetest, most gentle little dog but she has lots of energy. From about the time she was 6months until about 3 months ago I would take her running every...

    Hi, my little Freckles has had all her shots and the vet gave her the clear to go outside tomorrow. Super excited! What i was wondering was how long should I walk her for? She'll be 12 weeks on Wednesday and she seems to have boundless energy! I know she'd be delighted to go on a really long...
  18. Dealing with loose neighborhood dogs

    General Dog Discussion
    We adopted a 1+ year old lab/hound mix named Jack about 2 months ago. His training is coming along nicely, but our neighborhood has so many loose dogs that it becomes almost impossible to walk him. In the last few days, I've seen 2-3 loose dogs while just trying to walk around the block. Many...
  19. How can I train my pup to sit still...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    ...when I am trying to prepare him for a walk? He's pretty much figured out the W-word (not that I tip toe around it) but he starts bouncing with excitement. I don't mind it at this point necessarily. I go grab the leash and walk toward the front door. He is buzzing around and whatnot, quite...

    Hi, I'm a new dog owner (limited experience as a dog sitter). I have a 9 year-old silky terrier, adopted through a Rescue service. 1. Stupid question: Do I feed the dog first then walk him? He's been kept outside a lot and is not used to apartment living, where he might have to exercise more...
