  1. General Dog Forum
    I just adopted a dog a week ago, and was told she was very quiet and calm. Turns out she has lots of anxiety, even as she's settled in a bit, and now barks at anyone who comes to the door or comes over. Post-pandemic I'd like to have more people over, so I'm very concerned about this behavior. I...
  2. General Dog Forum
    My husband and I adopted a poodle/maltese mix, and we've had her for 2 weeks now. She started of super timid and scared, but has warmed up to us both relatively. Not sure if we're dealing with some separation anxiety here, but she will follow me everywhere. If she's laying down and I get up, she...

    Urgent!!! Oscar (male) my four year old King Charles Spaniel is a very moody dog, when we leave the house he tends to urinate somewhere inside the house even though he has a dog door that is always open and he knows how to use and uses regularly. On the rare occasion that the door to my room is...
  5. First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hello there, I recently (as in 2 weeks ago recently) adopted a 5 year old pitbull. He's a great dog and super easy to train, except when it comes to potty training and kenneling. First and foremost, he will only poop inside, never outside despite me taking him on 4 long walks a day. It doesn't...

    A few years ago we bought a shy (abused?) Australian Shepherd-Unknown breed dog from some Amish in our area. We saw him in a cage, his legs shaking to his core and took pity on him. We brought him home and it took a few weeks to gain his trust, and despite my efforts he never responded to any...
  7. Dog Rescue Forum
    Hello, We have had our rescue, from a hoarding situation, for several years now. She has just started to show a lot of aggression towards our other dog over treats and not food. She will bark, lunge and sometimes I have to physically separate them because it gets so intense. Neither dog...

    I'm a new dog owner and I just adopted a 2 year old border collie mix- she's fantastic! She's certainly made progress in the week and a half that she's been here- giving me less trouble getting her out of her crate for a walk, eating pretty much as soon as the food is in front of her- but I want...
  9. Dog Pictures Forum
    I'm new here, and thought I'd visually introduce my dogs! Rusty never leaves my side. He's rather anxious, but very good at reading human emotions. He's the only non-rescue, non-stray dog I've ever had, but he's not from a breeder either: he's an odd story. I was 11 years old, almost twelve...

    About two weeks ago I adopted a shepherd/Border Collie mix from a shelter in southern Oregon. I lost my beloved Shepherd/husky mix just over a year ago now, and I gotta say, having a dog in the house again is bringing up a lot of tears. I know its part of the healing process, that dog was with...

    Hi guys. I adopted a 9 year old black lab mix that I adopted about 4 months ago. I met him a few times before I took him home with me, and nothing appeared out of the ordinary with him. The only thing that the shelter told me was that he was not good with kids (He was surrendered about two weeks...

    My husband and I just rescued our first dog! He is a 10 month old retriever Aussie mix that has had a rough go around- Broken jaw, skin infection, & a BB stuck in his leg! He is the sweetest dog I have ever met! It amazes me how he can be so sweet with such a past! Introducing him to my 4 cats...

    Hello Everyone, I'm new to this forum but needed some advice/words of wisdom About 10 months ago we adopted a 10 month old Great Dane mix (we thought he was 2.5 years at the time). He's been the most wonderful pet we could have hoped for, very loving, gentle, well-behaved, etc. We absolutely...

    Hello, I have a 2 year old rescue, named Indiana, I think he's a Chihuahua Terrier mix. He's generally super sweet, but can be aggressive. He is very aggressive towards other dogs, whenever he sees one he goes crazy, barking, jumping, lungeing at them. Even though he only weighs 8 lbs, I have...

    Hi everyone! I'm a 23 year old female living in California. I have three dogs :rockon: but the reason for creating this account was for my lil pupper named Pelusa, or Lucy for short (Pelusa means fuzzy in Spanish). She's 4 years old, and she's either a Yorkie/Chihuahua or a Yorkie/Papillon mix...

    TLDR: treats don't work, strong environmental focus, play is inconsistent motivator, starting over training from scratch. I've had boots for about 9 months now. I got her as a puppy who had been more or less locked in a horse trailer for 6 months. She's a very sweet and somewhat worried McNab...

    Apologies for the long post. I am at the end of my rope.. July 15th, 2017 I drove over two a half hours to rescue a blue nose pitbull puppy from a less than pleasant situation. She came from a backyard breeder with little knowledge on dogs. She was covered in fleas, underweight and advertised...

    Hi guys! It's so nice to join this forum and meet you all. My name is Rosalyn and I have two rescues, one from the streets and one from negligence. Caesar is a medium sized mix breed, who followed us home in October 2016. He has quite a few behavioral issues, but we're working hard to fix...
