  1. Papillon BamBam

    Attention All New Members
    I found this forum on Google when searching for behavioral issues of Papillons. I have a 9 month old male Papillon neutered. I believe that I may spoil him, but am not sure. BamBam is increasingly aggressive toward my 3 cats. He nips at them, chases them and will even scrap with them. He also...

    So a little history about my dog. He's a small poodle. We got him in January, up until that point he belonged to my grandparents who died a year apart. So we've had him since. There are 3 people in my household. Myself, my brother, and my mother. Our dog Rusty has been fine for the most part...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi! So I wasn't sure which thread exactly to post this, but I figured this was the best bet. This is going to be a little long, but please bear with me. I have a one and a half year old Blue Heeler/Corgi mix female dog (Dixie) and a two and half year old English Bulldog (Thor). Neither are...
  6. pls help! young, new dog suddenly snappy and defiant

    Dog Training Forum
    Enzo, my first dog, has generally been sweet and gentle (although admittedly hyperactive and sometimes stubborn, but he's only 1 1/2). I know he is very pack oriented (follows me everywhere, bad separation anxiety) and an alpha (jumps all over other dogs, etc., and selectively obeys me). But...
  7. My puppy won't stop biting, and it's only getting worse!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a 3-month-old pitbull mix, and she will not stop biting me. No matter what I'm doing, she is constantly trying to bite any skin she can get to. I've tried the yipping trick that's supposed to surprise her and get her to stop, but all she does is get more excited and start barking and...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We have had our puppy, Big, for two years. Lately, every time he was laying on a certain chair he started growling at me and my boyfriend for trying to make him get up. But now, even when he's laying on the floor, he's only growling at me now. He wont break eye contact and every time I tell him...

  10. Puppy doesn't like harness/collar

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 13-week old Pomeranian puppy. It's not that he doesn't mind wearing the collar or harness, he just doesn't like the process of them being put on or taken off. When I try to put it on him, sometimes he'll start to pull his head away and then he snarls his lips and snaps. I know that...
