    Dog Training Forum
    Hi, Here's some history: We got our puppy at 9 weeks of age on 4/8/11. He was with his littermates until then, but a rescue pup so no mommy from 5 weeks on. Since we don't know the parents, we're not sure of the breeds, but lots of German Shepherd, some Husky, maybe some Border Collie. His...

    We adopted a 14-month old Shar-pei/Pug mix 3 weeks ago. Roscoe is wonderful, but we have been having issues with housetraining him. It seems he may have never been properly housetrained before. We have been crating him when we are at work. My husband would come home at lunch to walk him...

    We adopted a 1 year old dog 5 days ago. We are having issues with him pooping inside. The first few days he didn't have much of an appetite and didn't need to go. He will pee outside, in the form of him marking many things. But he has yet to poop in front of us outside, or at all. He has only...

    Hello Fidget is about 15 weeks old now. We have owned her about a month or so. She doesn't make many mistakes indoors now. Right now, sometimes she lets us know, sometimes she just pees without warning. She usually whines when she has to poo. One of our problems: she whines about ALOT of...
  10. Puppy seems oblivious to peeing

    Dog Training Forum
    My new toy aussie shepherd is about 15 weeks old and I can tell she is very smart. She picked up on going "potty" outside right away and even though we try to take her out every hour when we are home, she still is having problems inside. I used to have a Shih tzu and vaguely remember training...

    Dog Pictures Forum
    Hello, everyone! I'm new here and wanted to share some pics of my dog, Trixy. I adopted her in April from the local animal shelter and she has been a joy ever since. When she first got here, she'd be very jumpy... Barking at every noise and anyone (or thing) that passed the house. Now she...
