    Dog Training Forum
    My grandparents recently got a queensland heeler mix puppy, named Buck. Buck won't stop attacking feet and legs when excited, biting and nipping and barking incessently. He also jumps and bites onto clothes and tugs on them. I assume he has no proper outlet for his energy, as my grandparents got...

  3. Please Help! 18 Month old Red Heeler sudden leash and collar aggression!

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all! Last night my Red Heeler, Cody, decided (out of the blue) that he did NOT want to wear a collar or leash anymore!

On...

    General Dog Forum
    we got her about a week ago, and I'm all ways trying to guess her mix. The shelter said she was Dalmatian/Austrian Shepherd, I don't really believe. But I did see a Dalmatian in person when we took her to Petsmart, and they have the same head. She is lazy, but when she wants to go she will spark...
