behavior problems

  1. Dog won't stop barking at my father.

    Dog Training Forum
    My 11 month old small dog is quiet most of the time. He might bark every now and then at a noise or a stranger the 5 second before he falls in love with them and he barks at the opossum that come around at night. But he won't stop barking at my dad. They get along great. He especially loves my...
  2. So, not hitting my dog = spoiling my dog! (VENT + seeking advice)

    General Dog Forum
    I just wish the idea that you need to hit your dog in order to be a good owner would just die already! That and that chihuahuas are an odious little hellspawn breed. These two bad notions combined have brought me much grief with my otherwise wonderful boyfriend. I believe in positive...

    Dog Training Forum
    I have an olde English bulldog, she had a rough beginning. Her first owners bred her at 6 months, her second owners had 4-5 other dogs, multiple kids, and other animals in a three bedroom one level apartment. My pup is the sweetest pooch ever, I have a two year who puts tiaras on her, climbs...
  4. 1/2 Alpha Dog - adopted from shelter?

    Dog Training Forum
    So, I have a question about behavior of our female, 2 y.o. American Bulldog "Joy". We adopted her over 4 weeks ago, she was found abandoned near shelter with many little wounds, she was also REALLY scared of men even when they were 5 meters away from her (still scared of unknown, older men). She...
  5. Aggressive Alpha Dog - Attacking our other dogs!

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello everyone! I am looking for help with my aggressive alpha dog. We have tried general obedience and he is a good dog when he is in a good mood. But when he gets mad he is belligerent. And because he can be so aggressive, I get a little scared of him myself. He has nipped at my face before...

  8. Please Help - Aggressive Rescue Dog

    Dog Training Forum
    He is a 9 m/o american cocker spaniel. I adopted him at four m/o & he was extremely anxious, timid, & terribly afraid of men. I noticed the beginning signs of aggression but he was young, they were manageable & didn't escalate. He would snatch toys away from my other dog but was always okay with...
  9. 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...
  10. Humping?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I know neutering/spaying can be a touchy subject with people so let me start this by saying my dog is scheduled to be neutered late next week. We are not leaving him intact - just waiting for the appointment. Now on to the issue. Our dog is 5 years old so humping may not cease after he is...
  11. Dog freaks out whenever kids come over

    General Dog Forum
    I have a 2 year old mixed breed neutered male, Z. He's my first dog, so I'm kind of learning as I go. For the most part, he's well-behaved. He knows his commands and tricks, he's crate trained and potty trained. The problem I'm having with him happens when children, specifically my 8 year...
  12. Fox Wire Terrier friendly with large dogs but tries to fight with small dogs

    General Dog Forum
    I have a 5yr old Fox Wire Terrier and over time from walking him I've come to a conclusion that my dog is friendly towards large dogs or isn't even interested in them. When it comes to a small dog or a dog his size he usually just bows his head like hes curious / cautious and walks up quietly...
