  4. Clicker training in a kennel environment... (?)

    Dog Training Forum
    I've been reading a fair bit on clicker / marker training, and thought I'd try it on some of the shelter dogs where I volunteer. But then it struck me - if I click for one dog - won't the others, within hearing range, expect a reward as well? (Given they were 'conditioned' to react to the same...

  11. Fearful aggression in rescue.

    Dog Rescue Forum
    We just rescued an 80lb German Shepher/Rottweiler mix, Louie. He's a great dog, or at least he wants to be. He is trying to learn to trust us but we have a few issues: 1. He's no longer allowed back to the vet until he gets used to a muzzle. It only took one trip for that rule to come into...

    My husband and I just adopted Lily, a beautiful 2-year-old golden retriever mix from our local shelter. She's insanely sweet and calm--no jumping, no barking ever--but we are having major problems with her making escape attempts from the yard when we aren't looking. When we ARE there, she...
  15. Hello DogForums

    Attention All New Members
    I signed up today after lurking for several days while my wife and I sought out a new dog to join our family. We both agreed that we wanted to rescue a young dog, and found a match with a private rescue after a few heart breaking visits to some New York City municipal kill-shelters. It was...
  16. This doesn't seem right...

    General Dog Forum
    My friend lives in a smallish town in Texas. She went to her local shelter to walk dogs with her brother, and they met a sweet pup they both really liked and wanted to adopt. The shelter took the dog's temperature and sure enough, he had a fever. Instead of letting my friend adopt the dog, and...

  18. Experience with Shelter Puppies?

    Dog Rescue Forum
    We're adopting a poodle mix (possibly a cockapoo) from our local shelter. She's 8 months old (they think), and when we were playing with her in the play-yard she seemed really sweet, and friendly, but still ran around and had fun. When other dogs were barking at her she didn't bark back, but...

    General Dog Forum
    Hi, I'm new here and felt this was the best place to go. I have never been a dog person, not that I disliked them, really a cat person. Anyways, I was taking a long walk yesterday. There was a ~15lb dog walking confusedly on the sidewalk. He had a collar with a shoelace for a leash. He was...
