  4. Trouble with leash training

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello there, and this is my first dog post so I hope I get it all right! I had a Maltese Shih-Tzu for 15 years and it died 2 years ago. I recently decided to get a Border Collie. I love hiking and feel he'll make a great walking partner because of the type of breed. He's three months old now...

    Hello everyone, my dog Gus is 9 years old and doesn't have an actual race, it's more of a mix between a jack russell and a sheepdog... Anyways, when we first got the dog at the age of (somewhere around) 9 months, we didn't really know what to do as he was going to be our first dog ever. We...
  7. Strange behaviour - growling and barking at nothing?

    General Dog Forum
    My Luna has been having strange episodes lately. The following thing has happened three times (that I know of): she will be resting quietly, and all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, she will stand up and let out this low, mean-sounding growl - she NEVER growls like that, she growls in play...
  8. Dog peeing on beds.

    Dog Training Forum
    So, I've recently-ish gotten an Italian Greyhound. She's just turned one. A couple of times now she's peed on my dad's bed (while having access outside). If she's allowed, she would sleep on my bed, never anyone else's, and she has never peed on my bed. She's just now peed on my (older) brothers...

  11. Punishment in Dog Behaviour Training

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all, in this thread, i like to talk about punishement in behaviour training ... Punishment is a very emotive word. It conjures up many and varied images for people. Experiences that we understand as punishing stay in the memory and they stay there for a very long time. Of course there are...
  12. Please help me fix one simple behavioural problem with my dog!

    General Dog Forum
    Let me explain my dog's background, breed, and temperment first. We adopted her from the SPCA at 5 months. She is now 9 months. She's a black labrador mix. We think the mix is either shepard, beagel, or possibly husky. But she LOOKS almost 100% like a lab. Just slightly thinner and more...
  13. Aggressive Behaviour?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Lately my 3 month old puppy has been showing signs of aggression. I'm not talking rough playing like normal puppies do, I'm talking actual aggression.

  17. Vision or depth perception problem?

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello. I have a 2 year old Shiba Inu that I've noticed has some peculiar behaviours that I hope are not health-related. I've always owned mixed breeds in the past (Lab-Terrier, Terrier-Beagle, Mutt-Wolf...), so I'm not sure if it's just the breed. Here's what's happening: 1. Backs up slowly...

    I have a 6 month old GSD/Lab cross named Winston, and he's a very well behaved dog, knows tons of tricks, listens really well, excellent recall level, etc, but lately I've been observing his behaviour and noticing that he's become more shy around people and a bit more submissive. I didn't...
