  1. Why won't my dog go to the bathroom outside?

    Housetraining
    We got a new dog about a week ago and the shelter told us he is a little over a year old. We were told he was housebroken but he isn't. Out of the week he's been home, he's peed maybe 4 or 5 times outside and pooped once. Everything else has been in the house. The few times he has gone to the...
  2. Just seperation anxiety or something else? Lab I dogsit excited/anxious after walk

    Dog Training and Behavior
    This is my 6th day dog sitting an unspayed female black lab of 1,5 years old. Her owners told me she isn't usually home alone and that she needs regular walks or sometimes destroys house slippers or poops inside the house. She is very sweet and mild mannered but she has been having bouts of...
  3. Whining dog problems

    General Dog Discussion
    I didn't really know what to title this because I am new here. I never planned on joining a dog forum since I only have one dog and once he is gone I am done with dogs. But at this point, I am desperate! A little backstory, my dogs name is Peanut. He is a long haired chihuahua who is approx. 7...
  4. Puppy crying a lot when resting/trying to sleep (possible distemper)

    Dog Health
    Hello, about two months ago me and my family adopted a puppy that was hit by a car in front of my house. I can't tell his age for sure, but the vet estimated 2 months, so he must be around 4 months old by now. Despite the car accident, he only got damaged in his left hind leg, which is...
  5. Rescue with Separation Anxiety - Whining & Barking

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I rescued a 1-2 year old long haired Chihuahua mix 1 month ago. The decision was not made lightly as we had just lost our dog to a dog attack recently, however given the big emptiness we now had, we thought it would be better to focus our energy on rescuing another dog. Day 1, the dog was crated...
  6. Dealing with a dog who is an alarm clock

    Dog Training and Behavior
    So my nearly 4 year old yellow lab/golden retriever cross sleeps in her crate (actually her and her boxer cross sister share a big crate), and wakes up every morning around 5:30-6:00 AM and starts whining. This has been a relatively recent development (last month or so) and has started causing...
  7. My puppy has been having sleeping difficulties...

    Introductions
    We recently got our Bull Arab Mix, Grayson, about a month ago and we love him so much, but since we've had him we've had so many rough nights of him barking/whining/scratching at the door and it's given me horrible anxiety during his bed time. He's sleeping in the laundry room with his own bed...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey, all. I'm a new dog mom... adopted my now-10-month Louise from a shelter this summer and she's the first dog I've ever owned. Recently, she's been getting bouts of anxiety where she paces and whines non-stop. Initially, I thought she might need to go out. So I take her out, she goes or...

  11. Constant Whining/Anxiety in Older Dog

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted a pitbull mix 3 years ago from the local humane society. The dog was estimated to be around 4-5 years old then so currently about 7-8 years old. When we got the dog, Xion, he was already house trained and knew all basic commands. He listens very well and is very obedient with...
  12. Excited/Constant Whining in Car and on Walks

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My boyfriend and I adopted a rescue dog three months ago. We mainly got her as a companion for our one year old bulldog. We’re not sure of her exact breed, but she is definitely part, if not mainly, Dachshund and approximately 3-4 years old. When we first picked her up, she was understandably a...
  13. My dog doesn't stop crying at night and scratches the bedroom door till I wake up!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Ok, so about 8 months ago, I adopted Loki, my Labrador/GreyHound Mix. He's always been needy and loving and I honestly don't mind it. But, for some reason, for the past 2 weeks, he refuses to sleep in his bed that is placed out in the living room. He's never had an issue with this. However...
  14. American Pit/Boxer mix not submitting

    Dog Training and Behavior
    To try and encourage submissive behavior, I put my 14 month old Pitbull mix into his cage. I then simply stood tall and steady and crossed my arms. He started barking and whining, and I have no clue why. How else can I make him submissive? He is neutered.
  15. American Pit/Boxer mix barking/whining for attention

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello all. I have a 14 month old Pitbull/Boxer mix that was adopted a little more than a month ago. He is up to date on all of his vaccines, is neutered, and has exceptional behavior. He likes to bark/whine while residing outside the door for a room/next to my office chair, until he gets...
  16. 10 month old with Separation Anxiety - need advice

    New Additions
    Hi! My wife and I have a 10 month old Boxer/Lab (and a few other things) mix that we have had for about 6 months now. He is a wonderful dog except that he has separation anxiety. We've been keeping tabs on it for a while and have determined that it's not a learned behavior to get attention. He...
  17. All Night Whining, Howling, Barking

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I just want to know if what I am doing is correct... We are dog sitting for 10 days. The owners said that the dog has no problem being alone as it is rarely in there house due to a family member having allergies (discovered after they got the dog). They told us that she goes into her crate on...
  18. Big neighbor dog harasses my small dog, causing fear. Doesn't respond to dog warning!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have been caring for a neighbor dog a few weeks a year for several years, so I know him pretty well. I also foster for a local rescue and I've had my current dogs for a couple months. My dogs are small breed mixes (10+ pounds). The neighbor dog is more along the lines of a big lab mix. The...
  19. The start of crate training, TMI warning (ish) and my homemade crate

    Dog Training and Behavior
    To be honest, I didn't need a crate for any of the usual reasons, and I didn't particularly want one either. He has a "den", he's doing amazing with potty training, the entire room is puppy proofed, and I've been able to manage most obnoxious behaviors so far (with some exceptions). However...
  20. Roommate's dog has seperation anxiety/ whines

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, this is my first post here. My roommate has a 14 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix that whines for hours when my roommate has gone to work. When we first moved in she let the dog roam around freely in the house, but the dog would use the bathroom all over the house. We have gotten a...
