    Attention All New Members
    Hi everyone!!:wave: Hoping to get some advice on what to do about my 14 mo Husky/Black lab dog.

    General Dog Forum
    Lincoln has been giving me a hard time when interacting with certain neighbors on our walk. With some neighbors, she goes right up to them and greets them nicely and calmly, while others she starts barking non-stop and acting agressive, but never biting. I can't figure out why she greets some...

    I have a mixed breed puppy, Sacha, that will be 11 months old in a few days. It seems as she has gotten older, she has become more fearful of very random situations that she didn't previously have a problem with. Some examples: She now automatically goes into the submissive position when...

    Off Topic
    Hello! I have a question. I have a mini poodle who is 1 1/2 years old. Recently, over the past month he has been growling and snapping when I go to pet him at night when he is laying down. When I go over to him while he is laying down, he will turn onto his back like he normally does, so I can...
  8. Voice Reactive

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    This is by no means an all-the-time thing, but I just can't figure it out (and it may well have to do with my dog's previous home which is unknown). Most of the time, my dog is pretty nonreactive. We live on a busy block in Philadelphia so there's always noise and plenty of "scary" noise - even...

    General Dog Forum
    I have been researching dogs to rescue for some time. I finally went and visited a few. I found a few shelters well known for being good organizations. I am a very thorough person and wanted to make sure I covered all the corners. I did some temperament testing using the Sternbergs 12 step...
  11. My 6 month boxer never listens in the yard...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi, I have a great 6 month old boxer named Kujo and he's a really good dog and listens to me inside as well as I'm able to go walk him off leash in the woods and never runs away but the yard is a whole other story. When he's in the yard he acts very badly. When i call him to come in, he doesn't...
  12. My boyfriend's behaviorally challenged dog.(Miss Pees Alot)

    General Dog Forum
    My boyfriend's dog is a very human-submissive dog(she was adopted from a shelter, and we assume she has had previous abuse, either that or she was a stray). If she catches it in the air that you're mad, she will immediately crouch and pee. Even when I go to let the dogs out (I have them sit...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello, I have a 2yo male intact boxer who has begun to pee outside of his crate. I let him out in the morning to eliminate, feed him then walk him to eliminate 1 & 2 in the morning before work. He is crated for 6 - 8 hours with little to no incidents until 2 months ago. I have reduced his...
  14. Can't Seem to Socialize My Abused Pup

    Dog Training Forum
    From the time I met her nearly a year and a half ago Little Lady has seemed undersocialized, growling and sometimes barking at strangers, be they human or canine. Her growling is much worse around men, though, strange or familiar. She also reverts back to the total submission behavior she...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi Everyone, My family and I recently adopted a 2-2 1/2 yr old Cocker Spaniel, Sunny, from a rescue center. I was told that he was abused, neglected, starved and left tied up out side his entire life. He had no training whatsoever. It was pretty much like having a puppy in the house. He is...

    Dog Training Forum
    Our Pomeranian was house trained. For the past few months she has taken to pooping and peeing on the carpets (she has a doggie door and can come and go as she pleases to relieve herself, play etc). Yesterday it hit an all time low. She is not a fan of going to the groomers. She was happy and...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a year old rescue cocker mix who began a compulsive barking problem about a month after I adopted her (6 months ago). The second we leave the apartment, she begins to bark at trees and cars. She will not stop until she becomes VERY distracted by something else (such as a ball). We have...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hello, We are crate training our new Westie puppy Daisy. She is almost ten weeks old and has been with us three days. On the whole, things are going very well. Daisy took to her crate easily and is very comfortable with it, which we attribute to the fact that the person that was raising her...
