    Has anyone had issues with shiba inu aggression/reactivity? I have a shiba inu who will sometimes react (lunge/bark/jump/bite) to people holding things in their hands/suddenly walking into the room/loud noises. It's sometimes hard to predict. I think it could be fear aggression/reaction to...

    Hi everyone. I need advice! How do you deal with someone who is completely oblivious to their dogs' behavior? My husband's best friend and his girlfriend have two rescue dogs, a young male and a senior female. The dogs are friendly with people but very reactive toward other dogs. The senior...

    Hello! To start, here is the problem I am facing. I have a 4 1/2 year old unfixed male dog (I am not sure of his breed) who, in the past 6 or so months, have started becoming more aggressive towards other dogs. Some background: I adopted my dog about two years ago when I was stationed in...

    My lab/shepard/retriever is 7 months old and LOVES all dogs and people. He gets along with everyone and loves to play. He’s not aggressive towards me or strangers. The problem is we noticed he is aggressive/possessive over food and toys. Doesn’t matter if it’s even his toy, he tries to steal it...

    Hello. I have a 4 month old husky/malamute/Canadian Eskimo dog mix named Luna. I got her about two weeks ago from a breeder. She was born October 26th 2019. She is shy towards people, myself included. I don't think the breeders handled her much. The breeders are reputible. She is obsessed with...

    I believe there is a tiny bit of mostly forgotten research about so-called "Cocker Rage Syndrome" in cocker spaniels and other breeds, or Sudden Onset Aggression, a possibly seizure-related or disorder, which has been most extensively researched by Dr Ilana Reisner. Her work traces this form of...

    Some of you know we just adopted a bonded pair of Pyr mixes, one male and one female. Baelor, the male, is by far the more dominant one. Shae is timid, fearful, and traumatized from their past treatment. She is particularly uncertain around people and follows him like a shadow, so closely that...

    Hi there! I'm new. We have always rescued dogs, most have been older. Now that we have kids, we decided to get a puppy. We've had dogs and cats all my life. :) So why am I here? Well...the puppy. She's 4 months old. We've never had a dog like this one. She is a "potcake," a rescue from Puerto...

    Hello everyone, I have a 11 year old mountain feist (similar to a jack russell) and a 6 year old blue pit. I got both of them when they were about 6 weeks old. The pit gets along with the feist, probably because the feist was 5 when the pit was a puppy so he grew up with him. My brother has...

    Hi all, I really need some advice on my 14/15 week old Pomeranian puppy! Mainly about aggression but a few other things too. So to start off, I recently got a Pomeranian puppy from a registered breeder that also does showing. She’s a very nice lady and really cares for her pomeranians so I think...

    Hi guys! I adopted a 9 year old black lab mix from a shelter almost 4 months ago, and when I met with him before I got him, he seemed like a great match. The only thing the shelter told me was that he was not good with children (a family had to surrender him because of this). I filled out the...

    Sorry so long want to put as much detail as possible: We had a lot of people at our house for an extended period of time for a family gathering and my dog snapped and growled at several people including a child. (The adults let him sniff there hand first and he still did it) When I picked him up...

    Can anyone help me? Our 18 month old female Lab/Rottweiler cross is suddenly aggressive to other dogs. She has regular walks at the dog park where she (used to) love playing with other dogs her size, but has always reacted badly to little fluffy ones. And just tonight she’s escalated to snapping...

    Let me preface this post by stating I should have done more research about the breed beforehand. A few months ago I rescued a 2 year old Australian Shepherd. I was bringing her into a home with a 7 year old Standard Poodle, 7 year old Goldendoodle, and 2 year old Cavapoo. The Poodle and...

He is very aggressive towards other dogs, whenever he sees one he goes crazy, barking, jumping, lungeing at them. Even though he only weighs 8 lbs, I have...

Our corgi took really quickly to my husband and gets along with our current dog just fine. He is fine when my husband puts his leash on or off him, he goes straight...
