    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.

  6. About to get rid of our dog

    General Dog Forum
    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...

    Dog Training Forum
    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...

    Dog Training Forum
    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.

    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...
  17. 10 week Havachon menace, tantrum crying/howling in crate and playpen constantly :(

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We have several problems. My dog won't stop howling/crying bloody murder the moment I close the door to his crate or to his playpen, even if I'm standing right there.
