  1. Aggressive Pomeranian puppy

    Attention All New Members
    Hi all, I really need some advice on my 14/15 week old Pomeranian puppy! Mainly about aggression but a few other things too. So to start off, I recently got a Pomeranian puppy from a registered breeder that also does showing. She’s a very nice lady and really cares for her pomeranians so I think...
  2. Craft breweries

    Off Topic
    Does anybody else here love craft breweries? I think of our favorite one as our "third place" there's home, work and the brewery. The beer is good but the appeal is truly the people. The staff know us and our older dog Rosie. She LOVES it when they bring her a bowl of water! We plan on taking...
  3. Using a muzzle for socialising an adult dog?

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 8 year old staffy rescue who I've owned for over a year and a half now. He's pretty much fully trained now, but I'm still unsure when it comes to other dogs. He's not an unfriendly dog - but he does get intimidated by dogs (paticularly male) who come up to him, and in the past he has...
  4. Frustrations with young dog. Socializing, and pulling on walks.

    Dog Training Forum
    So I've had my dog since January this year. He's about a year, and a half. Australian shepherd, and catahula mix we believe. My fiance, and I decided to get him together. This is my first experience with a dog; I grew up with cats. He's usually sweet enough with people, will bark at strangers...

  7. Socialization

    General Dog Forum
    My husband and I have two 6 month old puppies. When we first got them they loved any person that came over and loved to be pet... Now they do not like any new people or any dogs. They bark when our neighbors go by and and any dogs pass by the yard. I took the little girl with me to a Bible study...
  8. Help me socialize my dog!

    Dog Training Forum
    So I've had this dog for three years now, and overall she's very good. The one thing that I'd like to change is the way she interacts other dogs. She has been raised with other dogs and acts normally around them, but any time we see another dog besides the two she was raised around, she starts...

    General Dog Forum
    Hello all, new to this forum and wanted some input or ideas/opinions about my dog. He is a 2 1/2 year old white shepherd who constantly runs circles around my house and chews at himself.

  11. What is a good breed for me?

    General Dog Forum
    Hi, I'm looking to buy a dog but I would like advise on what breed(s) would be best for me. I've owned 4 dogs in the past, however I'm not experienced with training because I was a kid and my family took care of them. I'm looking for a dog that isn't too hard to take care of (ex. how huskies are...
