  1. Hyper puppy that won't play outside

    General Dog Forum
    We have a 7 month old boxer/pit bull mix named Apollo. When we first got him 2 months ago, he would play outside with our 5 year old dog, Lucy and run around but that only lasted about 2 weeks. Apollo is extremely hyper in the house, running and jumping on people, once he goes outside, he is...
  2. Best Toys for Bored Shepherd?

    General Dog Forum
    My big boy, Naches, is part Australian Shepherd and Chow. This is great because he has his lazy moments and his hyper moments. However, we just recently got him and he is really bored. We cannot trust him outdoors without a leash quite yet but we take him out as often as possible. Anyway, he...
  3. The Effects of Dog Walking

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    If you've been to my other thread, you've seen that I'm very reluctant about taking my five month old puppy out for walks because of the stray dogs that patrol near my house. Now, though, I'm starting to feel like I have to stop worrying and just take her out for a walk. One of the main...
  4. How do I get her attention?

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello! So my JaSlyn is finally done with her shots, yay! I'm ready to start socializing her and such. I want to get some basic obedience in as well. I've owned a lot of larger dogs (rotties, chow chows, etc) and though they had "puppy spunk" you put any type of food in front of them and I had...
  5. My dog is driving me INSANE!

    General Dog Forum
    Forgot to check where I was posting this. Moving! I have a 5 month old puppy that is driving me absolutely out of my mind. I've even thought briefly about bringing her back to the Humane Society where I got her. But I just don't want to give up on her like that. Not to mention, I've...
  6. HELP! Over hyper puppy; don't know what to do!

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a five month old Lab/Border Collie/Mereema. She is so perfect when it is just me and her, but the minute she sees another dog or person she goes absolutely insane. She stops listening completely, plus she will start jumping and going nuts, from licking their feet to biting their mitts...

  9. Need Advice with my Pitador

    Dog Training Forum
    I hope this is the right place to post this. I have a Lab mix pup -- we think she might be a Pitador. I don't know her history before I got her, but she appeared to be in good condition (I was told she was abandoned). I think she's about 5-6 months old (?). Anyway, by herself, she's great...
  10. Hyperactivity, Biting, Jumpping and Destruction Help!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    When we brought home my puppy Mocha, he was very calm and quiet and didn't bite anyone. He played with his toys and didn't bite the furniture or bother the cat. He didn't just and waited patiently for us to pet him. As he got use to the house, he got more hyper and destructive. Now, when I get...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi. I have a two year old female german shepherd that is extremely hyper. I take her out on a four mile jog almost every day, where she gets both off and On leash time.

  12. My dog is driving me NUTS...

    Dog Training Forum
    whew...there are some days that I wish we didn't even have a dog, like today... OK. We had to go to my Grandpa's birthday dinner today at my parent's place. She was incredulously insane the entire time. It seems almost unnatural how hyper she is. I can't properly describe it. She is that crazy...
  13. Fidget Uncontrollably Hyper with Guests

    Dog Training Forum
    Whenever guests come over or I go to someone's house with Fidget, she goes absolutely bonkers. Scenario: Someone comes to the door and knocks. She barks, which is ok since I like her to let us know that someone is at the door. I tell her to sit, and then I go to the door and open it. She often...
  14. Puppy CRAZY with new people

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello Our new addition, Fidget, is CRAZY around new people and people she doesn't see often. (ie: anyone who is not me or my husband) She goes all hyper and happy, runs to them, ignores every command I use, leaps at/on them and licks and play bites. If I'm holding her, I can barely keep her in...

  16. My sweet but hyperactive dog won't stop jumping!

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a lab/pit mix who is very sweet, extremely hyper, and won't stop jumping no matter what I try. I've had her just at a year. She's about a year and 9 months old. She's very hyper so I do my best to take her out and expend her energy every day. The only problem is that when I first go...
