leash aggression

  1. Please Help! 18 Month old Red Heeler sudden leash and collar aggression!

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all! Last night my Red Heeler, Cody, decided (out of the blue) that he did NOT want to wear a collar or leash anymore! To the point of extreme aggression and biting when we get close to his neck with the collar. I honestly have no idea what the problem is! Note: We use a collar/leash combo...
  2. Advice for barking and leash aggressive small dog?

    Dog Training Forum
    I recently adopted Ginger, a 5-6 year old, small mixed breed (poodle and some sort of terrier). I was told that before being in a foster home for a month, she was in a shelter who had picked her up as a stray. They believe she was a stray for about a year. Other than that I have no idea about...
  3. When to give up on loose lead training?

    Dog Training Forum
    There is nothing I can offer her. There is no treat or toy more valuable to this dog than dragging me around the neighborhood. And she is reactive to other dogs on the leash (lunging/barking) despite being pretty polite off lead. I finally gave up and use a head collar to walk her. She...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi, all! My husband and I rescued a puppy, Charlie, back in January (possible lab/husky mix). She will be 5 months old this coming Monday. I've come to notice that when she is on her leash/being restrained on the leash and another dog is nearby, she tries to lunge and bite at them. She also...

    Hello! Short version: Our 10 mo old husky jumps up and bites me on walks and I am at a loss. Long version (sorry it's so long!): My husband and I got our first dog together in January at 8-9 weeks old.

    My boyfriend and I adopted a 12-month old, 80 lb male Shepherd mix from the animal shelter 2 weeks ago. According to the shelter, he was surrendered when his previous owners divorced. Cliff exhibited some signs of anxiety within his first few days at home (whining, pacing, excessive drooling...

    Attention All New Members
    I have a 1yr old Welsh Terrier. We got her at 6mos. She is a loving happy dog toward people and other dogs unless she's on a leash. It's horrible!!! She shrieks and barks at every dog, bird and sometimes people! I hold the leash tight so that there is no give on her harness. Otherwise she...

    I recently adopted a dog (not sure what she is her body looks like a boxer) that is super friendly to people. She is a spayed female about 3 years old. She used to live with two other dogs and I was told she was taken to the dog park as well. But when I take her on walks, she...
  9. Reactive adolescent dog struggles meeting puppies

    Dog Training Forum
    6 weeks ago I began fostering (and just adopted (I'm a terrible foster parent)) a 1.5 year old 32# Corgi mix (probably Rhodesian, Boxer, Pit Bull, etc). He was not socialized/trained by his previous family and was rotting away in a shelter for 6 weeks. For his age and circumstances, he is...
  10. Meeting new dogs?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I seem to be posting a lot this week! Just wondering if anyone has suggestions for how to introduce Snowball, who is leash-reactive but not aggressive, to new dogs. He is VERY friendly and social and loves meeting/playing with other dogs (part of the problem, I know). He is also MUCH less...
  11. Leash Aggression

    Dog Training Forum
    I got Taichi about a year ago, and for some reason (perhaps unintentionally through something I did?) he developed leash aggression issues. When another dog walks by he makes a really high pitched whine/growl and tries to leap at them. If a loose dog approaches him, he'll bite at them. He...
