    I adopted a pup from the local SPCA. This dog is my 8th, so I'm no stranger to dogs. I've had a GSD, a lab, and various terriers. I have NEVER had as much of a problem with any of my other dogs as I am having with Oliver, my Lab/GSD mix. He's willful and does not listen. He doesn't seem to...

    I have a 16 week old Alaskan malamute, male puppy. Overall he’s a very good puppy, he sleeps in his crate, and will go in on command. Behavior wise in the last few days he has started something new where he is whimpering for what seems like no reason, he is fed, he has been outside, gone potty...

    I have been fostering (and greatly want to adopt) a 4 y/o pit mix. She knows basic sit, stay commands (that I didn't teach her!) and generally listens very well. However, my 10 y/o beagle/basset has some issues with her, starting about a week after the new dog arrived. The issues are based...

    I just adopted a dog a week ago, and was told she was very quiet and calm. Turns out she has lots of anxiety, even as she's settled in a bit, and now barks at anyone who comes to the door or comes over. Post-pandemic I'd like to have more people over, so I'm very concerned about this behavior. I...

    I have searched this behavior online and never found anything that describes what I'm talking about or answers the question of why it's done. My dog is an 8 year old fixed female yorkie poodle mix in great health besides a little bit of arthritis in her feet, she's built quite sturdy but gets...

    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...
  7. 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...

    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...

    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...
  10. 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. She came from a backyard breeder with little knowledge on dogs. She was covered in fleas, underweight and advertised...

    Hello everyone, this is my first time posting here. [Background] So I have a 1.5 year old male Samoyed who is neutered. He has had bad luck with meeting other dogs in the past. Many times while the dogs are sniffing each other, the other dogs will start growling or barking at Albert. He hasn't...

    Hi there! I joined this site for advice with my 1.5 year old Australian cattle dog/border collie mix. I adopted her when she was approximately 4 months old in November of 2014. She is a great dog with a few small behavior issues like barking and acting territorial, as well as a slight social...

    Hi! I have a mixed breed (possibly hound/shepherd?) female who is about 15 months old. Overall she is a fantastic family dog. She's great with other dogs, loves kids, and has been very easy to train. She's a little shy, especially when people she doesn't know come to our house, but she...

    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. She only keeps walking in the backyard. In other words we can be hours outside and...

    We have a 12 week old tibetan terrier who is extremely mouthy and wants to chew on our hands constantly. We decided to have a trainer come to the house to help us with the issue. I picked the trainer based on stellar reviews on yelp. The session was based on applying a physical behavioral...

    Hello! We got a Bernese mountain dog a year ago thinking that training would be easy... (As they are usually a mellow dog) but have been having some major behavioral issues since about 7 months. He works great with me and my family (mainly me xD) but as soon as someone he hasn't seen for about a...

    Our 7ish year old female rescue beagle has started to show some strange behavior toward our other two dogs including aggression, dominance, and obsessiveness. This happened literally overnight. She is a rescue from a puppy mill that we have had for about a year and a half. Our other two dogs are...
