    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Does anybody else in the forum cope with anxiety? Yesterday I was with my local trainer and he pointed how tense I was all the time and how dangerous that could come to be around Miúra, my new 4 month old pup, who's a dominant dog. This made me very concerned yet again about owning a dog that...
  2. Dominant Dog

    General Dog Forum
    I have a pitbull, and ever since he was a puppy he has been very dominant. However, I dismissed this kind of behavior because he listened well to me, played well with other dogs and never showed any real aggression. He would socialize just fine. After my brother with two more unfixed male...

  6. Is my puppy dominant?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    My 5 month husky/malamute has developed a liking to body slamming into my father and I. She also likes to put her mouth around peoples' hands, and while she has a soft mouth, this gets quite annoying.
