  1. Stubborn Hound Won't Walk

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a 8-year-old, beagle/basset rescue, Penny. I've had her for 6 months. I love her to bits, but she's an absolute nightmare to walk. As expected of a hound dog, she loves to sniff sniff sniff. I understand that it's her natural instinct, and judging by her wagging tail, it is her...
  2. My dog keeps running away

    Dog Training Forum
    My 23-month-old Jackapoo (Jack Russell/Poodle mix) has been to puppy classes, has had one-on-one training, yet he still runs away in the park. We walk him with our 11-year-old labrador, in the same park every weekday, and he knows most of the other dogs that come there. Yet when we let him run...
  3. The Gentle Leader?

    Dog Training Forum
    So I have had my little Leo in training since basically 12 weeks old. The training has been in Petco puppy classes because I wanted him to get socialization down too. He is actually freakishly brilliant and has learned all commands very well, training at home isn't as much as it SHOULD be...

  5. New leash w/o handle: any idea how to attach poop/treat bags?

    General Dog Forum
    I bought a new leash that was on sale, largely because after even four month; my boy really needed a 2' leash in the city. The price was too good to pass up. The problem is that it doesn't have a loop handle; I used to attach his misc. bags (treats/poop) to the handle of the leash w/ a...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all, I am having a problem with one of my dogs and can't seem to find a solution. She is a 10 year old Miniature Pinscher and she has walked well on a leash since she was a puppy. Recently while on a walk, she suddenly stopped walking and looked a little spooked. I carried her home and...
  8. Loose Leash Training..

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi there! I've been working with my pup on loose leash walking.. I think. ;) Basically we did a lot of leash-less training, rewarding her for staying by my side when I'm walking, and stopping when I stop, sometimes sitting. Then we did indoor silky leash training (probably my version of...

    Attention All New Members
    HI y'all I'm living in Paris, France. A little past 40 I was starting to wonder if I'd be alone forever (things sure have changed since :wink:) so I got a rescue dog, my first K9. His name is Zed. He is half dachshund half griffon dog. He's not much to look at but he's whipsmart and an...

    Dog Training Forum
    Barley is my first puppy. She is a wonderful and intelligent little dog and I absolutely love her! Except for one thing. Walking her is awful. Here are just a few of her... "walking quirks": 1. She likes to just stop. Not because its a shady stop, not because she is tired. She just stops. And...
  12. Scared of Collars and Leashes?

    Dog Training Forum
    So, I recently found out my (almost) 6 month old Dachshund mix puppy, Tazz, is completely TERRIFIED of leashes and collars. I've tried giving him treats, letting him walk around with it on and not holding it, and every time he freaks out, whines and whimpers, and just goes ballistic. And no...

    Hi everyone, We are having a weird and scary behavior from our eight-month-old that we have no idea how to handle and really need some advice. When we take him outside in the evening, on leash in the backyard, he sometimes goes bananas: biting the leash and escalating until he's biting our...

    Hey everybody! :wave: We are trying to work on training our 13 week old shiba inu.

  17. Dog walking training, no treats

    Dog Training Forum
    Personally I'm not willing to take the dog out with treats or any training accessory. But for the past year, my small to medium sized dog has been pulling on the leash and I'm developing back ache. It's so frustrating that I turn the dog loose on the street, with all the risks that this entails...

  20. Leashes at OFF-LEASH Dog Parks

    General Dog Forum
    There is a widely shared belief that leashes at dog parks indicate a maladjusted dog or some form of abuse on the part of the owner. I am one of the people who use a leash intermittently while at an off-leash dog park. I believe a leash is an important and useful tool to communicate with and...
