    Hi, looking for a bit of advice. We’ve had a puppy for two weeks and it’s all going great however she goes a bit mental and bites the sofa when we sit on it instead of sitting on the floor with her. We’ve tried to ignore her so she gets bored or sees there’s no reaction to that behaviour but the...

    Hi all... I have a 3 month cocker spaniel who unfortunately has a fractured front leg. He is currently in a cast and under strict crate rest for 4 weeks minimum. We’ve just done our first week and it’s been hard but have noticed when we take him out for a cuddle he is biting a lot more and...
  3. Aussie Puppy bark/growl at new people

    I have a 12 week old puppy that is so sweet to me and the people he is comfortable around, but he takes a long time to warm up to people. Whenever I take him to meet a new friend he isn't bothered by them until they try to pet him or pick him up. He starts barking and will even nip at them. I...

    I just got a 3 and a half month old goldendoodle puppy. He is very new to my home so is not completely settled or comfortable, but I have learned a couple of things about him that I feel need immediate correction. He is a really good boy overall and is super friendly. He loves everyone and wants...

    I have a new papillon puppy for just 4 days. She's 17 weeks old and tbh I'm having a bit of a nightmare. I had thoroughly researched the breed before purchasing her and thought she would fit in well with my family. I have three young children (twins aged 7 and a 9 year old) and they are very...

    I know puppies are hyperactive, but I don't know what to do with our puppy. We got him a week ago at 10 weeks. He is half chihuahua, part yorkie, and part sharpei. He weighs 3 lbs. This puppy runs and plays for up to 6 hours straight. I mean that literally. He'll run for hours then sleep for...

    Hello everyone, I have a year old male husky named Bear. He's really friendly with other dogs and people but he does have a tendency to jump. We tend to ignore that since he's young but we don't encourage it in any way. The main problem with Bear here is during walks, he randomly jumps on me...

    Delete if not allowed This is not about my dog, but one that affects me directly. My dad had to put one of his favorite dogs to sleep last year who was a mastiff. Instead of moving on and enjoying the 5 other dogs he had, he decided to get a new mastiff, a one year old female who had been...

    Hi everyone - first time poster here. We recently adopted a kelpie x ACD from a shelter at 8 weeks. He's very clever and was able to pick up basic commands like sit, down, stay, lie and spin very easily. He's very confident and friendly with people and other dogs. He is now 13 weeks old. He is...

    My grandparents recently got a queensland heeler mix puppy, named Buck. Buck won't stop attacking feet and legs when excited, biting and nipping and barking incessently. He also jumps and bites onto clothes and tugs on them. I assume he has no proper outlet for his energy, as my grandparents got...

    My family has just gotten two young female chihuahuas. I am new to owning dogs but my partner is not. He has been able to train the dogs to do basic commands like sit and roll over. However, one of them is particularly aggressive towards her sister and towards us. She will attack his sister out...

    So, a couple months ago we acquired a Thai Ridgeback puppy. He's now 5 months old. Typical puppy stuff was expected but his nipping was extra bad and he would get into crazy moods where his "Zooming" was always accompanied by biting and "spar" fighting like we're in his pack. But nothing mean or...

    We have had our puppy (German Shepherd, now 15 weeks old) now for about a month and a half. In that time, we have got him house trained (or so we thought). I know he is still in the teething phase, so we have been patient with the biting, but everything that we have tried to do to get him to...

    Hello, So we just got a new puppy and we are having some issues with getting him trained. He is a border collie so he is very high energy, we have another one at home as well so we do have experience with raising border collies. Our other dog did not give us nearly as many issues as this dog...

    Our weimaraner, KB, is about 2 years old now. I had no experience with a weim, but my husband grew up with them and decided to get himself one for my birthday from a very good breeder. We got him when he was already a bit older, maybe about 3 months, he was the last one in the litter because he...

    Hi there! I'm new. We have always rescued dogs, most have been older. Now that we have kids, we decided to get a puppy. We've had dogs and cats all my life. :) So why am I here? Well...the puppy. She's 4 months old. We've never had a dog like this one. She is a "potcake," a rescue from Puerto...

    Hi Everyone! This is my first post here. I have an 8 month old male black lab. He's a great pup - lovable, smart and cute! Over all, he is a REALLY good pup! BUT he is the mouthiest (both play biting AND barking) dog I've ever had. He gets the zoomies like most pups, but it's coupled with...

    Hi guys! I adopted a 9 year old black lab mix from a shelter almost 4 months ago, and when I met with him before I got him, he seemed like a great match. The only thing the shelter told me was that he was not good with children (a family had to surrender him because of this). I filled out the...

    Hi guys. I adopted a 9 year old black lab mix that I adopted about 4 months ago. I met him a few times before I took him home with me, and nothing appeared out of the ordinary with him. The only thing that the shelter told me was that he was not good with kids (He was surrendered about two weeks...
