  1. Does my pup poop and pee to get treats?

    Dog Training Forum
    I know it sounds like a silly question. It's his behavior that I have been observing since yesterday. So, my puppy, Milo was brought to our home just yesterday. He seems like a very smart pup. He makes poo and pee accidents on the tiled floor sometimes, but most of the time, he poops and pees...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hello, I have a question about a dog that belongs to some friends. He is an adult, and while I've known him since he was a pup, I have never lived with him. I have a question about aggression. I realize that dogs can get highly aggressive around their food. If you try to pet or interact with a...
  3. Behavior: is my puppy just a puppy or is she psychotic? Blue Heeler ACD

    General Dog Forum
    Hey Folks, We have had Bloo, our ACD/Blue Heeler puppy since she was 5 weeks old. I hear that's a bit early to be separated from mama and litter and I assure you we didn't know until she was home already. She seems to be overly aggressive to everyone in the house - maybe that's just a puppy...
  4. Predicting Adult Personality From Puppy Behavior?

    General Dog Forum
    Hi all, We're getting close to the end of fostering 5 mixed-breed (GSD+??) puppies. We will be adopting one of them, and it's such a tough choice. What I'm wondering is how much of a puppy's behavior at 8-9 weeks can be expected to carry over into adulthood? One of our favorites seems less...

    Dog Rescue Forum
    Apologies for the long post. I am at the end of my rope.. July 15th, 2017 I drove over two a half hours to rescue a blue nose pitbull puppy from a less than pleasant situation.

  9. Dog won't stop walking around outside

    General Dog Forum
    My dog is a Yorkie and she never used to do this before eventually when she goes outside her normal behavior would be to bark now she rarely barks or just on very few times and won't stop walking around the yard.

  16. Almost wish I didn't know some dog behavior signals

    General Dog Forum
    Through being a member of this and other dog forums, I've learned to read basic behavior cues from my dog, but there are times I almost wish I hadn't learned these things. I realize that probably doesn't make any sense and that I'm better off (and my relationship with Cobber is better off)...

    So four days ago I forced to take on an older, abused, poorly socialized, toy poodle. She was born and raised in a puppy mill. She was used to breed since her first puppy period. She was never shown any affection, locked in a kennel in the garage of an animal hoarder/pathetic excuse for a...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hey pals! My little guy, Denzel (toy fox terrier mix), has been the sweetest dog since I got him 4 months ago. He's always been a bit possessive over his food and toys (which I intend to correct), but lately he's been growling and snapping out of nowhere while being pet. He used to have mange...
