  1. Play Barking at 3 am and Play Biting

    Dog Training Forum
    I grew up with sighthounds, so I rarely had to deal with barking. Myrrh is my first non sighthound dog, being a mix of everything under the sun. She's 11 weeks old and a real cutie. She's getting better with her play biting... except when I'm in the bedroom, trying to sleep. She launches herself...

    I am at my wits end with a 5 month old puppy we adopted. He is cute as can be, but is giving my boyfriend and I nothing but trouble, and causing us to be unable to give our other puppy attention that she needs as well because we are constantly trying to correct his behaviours, to no avail. He...
