  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I want to take my Australian cattle dog on walks near my house but she seems very stressed out if she can no longer see the house. Almost every day for the past few weeks i have tried walking walking her a little bit further, but we haven't made it very far and it just turns into me...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    I recently adopted a dog that is very stubborn. She walks great at most times and loves her walks but when she sees another dog, a kid or anything she wants to play with she lays down and won't move until that thing (dog, kid, etc.) either comes over to her or moves away until she can't see it...

    Hello! I have a four month old husky/lab mix named Grimmlok. We're currently going to manners classes, and he's already completed his puppy training classes. He's fairly well behaved, considering the breed mix. However, I'm a little confused recently as to how much exercise is too much. We go on...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    I've had my dog Brock since 9/28 & overall he is doing really well. He is about 1.5 years & a Lab/Sharpei mix. I don't think he was abused at all but he was definitely neglected. However, when we are returning home from walks we hit a point where he just doesn't want to budge. It gets to the...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, Frankie is a 1 year old male miniature pinscher. He is VERY lovable to family and friends. The only issue I am currently having with him is his behavior while we are on walks. He will growl and lunge at ANY stranger that walks by us on walks without provocation (trying to pet...
  6. Dog Health
    My parents love to take my 1.5 year old lab for walks in the mountains near our home, however now that there is snow on the ground they are afraid it will be too cold for his feet. They usually take a good 2 hour walk but I'm not sure if this is too much exposure. Any thoughts?

  11. Puppy Help
    First, let me say that the dog forum has been incredibly helpful to me in the past few days. The comments have given me advice, knowledge, and hope! With that being said, here is yet another Theo post.... I looked in some of the other forum categories, but I couldn't find anything about puppies...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    So Pikel and I were out for our morning walk this morning, and he got zoomies. It would have been a little bit comical, but he was throwing himself against the end of the leash, which not only was nearly yanking my arm out of its socket, but was also obviously putting a LOT of pressure on his...
  13. Dog Gear and Supplies
    I have recently discovered Gentle Leaders while browsing through the aisles at the local Petsmart. Having no previous exposure to them, I was unsure if they would be beneficial or harmful to my dogs. Both of my Miniature Schnauzers have a tendency to pull on their leashes, quite hard. They...

    Any other advice on how to deal with his behavior would be appreciated. I have a new puppy: 5 month old german shepherd. He used to spend a lot of time in the laundry room since he would often be too much to handle since he plays way too aggressively and has A LOT of energy all the time...

    Hi! I have a 4 year old 8lb Terrier-mix, and a 3 year old 25lb Schipperke-mix who I love and adore. Life was so much easier when I just had the Terrier - our walks were educational and fun...I could really work on her behavior. Then I fostered Pumpkin (the Schipperke-mix) and could not get...

    Hello My puppy is 13 weeks old and yesterday we went for our first walk in the park. I have been carrying her on similar walks since she was 8weeks old and she has watched other dogs from my arms but yesterday was the first time she could meet them while standing on her own four paws. As soon...

    Hello, I currently own a 7 month Old Yoranian, which is a Yorkshire Terrier cross Pomeranian, called Tinkabelle. She is so sweet and good with people however when she is out on a walk she is badly behaved. She barks at other dogs and chases after them when she spots them from across the Park...
  20. Dog Training and Behavior
    I read several posts here and other articles that weren't related to this website about leash training, and I've yet to find something that alleviates every problem that we have. My dog is a three year old yorkie poo that I got from someone trying to give her away. She was used to a backyard...
