  1. Greater Swiss mountain dog that refuses to leave the property

    Dog Training Forum
    I have had this dog since she was 9 weeks old. She was raised on a farm with little social interactions. Her parents were a Great Dane black lab and a purebred greater Swiss mountain dog. I had walked her 3 times a day for the first day 6 months and lived a 5 minute walk from a dog park that she...
  2. Stubborn Hound Won't Walk

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a 8-year-old, beagle/basset rescue, Penny. I've had her for 6 months. I love her to bits, but she's an absolute nightmare to walk. As expected of a hound dog, she loves to sniff sniff sniff. I understand that it's her natural instinct, and judging by her wagging tail, it is her...
  3. Training a Stubborn Dog?

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello everyone! I have a one year old beagle mix named Finn, and he's a very stubborn guy. He gets commands somewhat quickly when I teach them to him, but tends to pick and choose when he wants to respond (even though I don't reward him until he does them completely). My biggest concern right...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello everyone, Firstly just wanted to say a big thank you - my first post on this forum around 2 months ago was because Logan and I were really struggling to adjust to a new routine and I was considering returning him to the breeder for his own good and happiness. Your advice really helped me...
  5. HELP! Third Dog in My Life, I Can't Cope With Him (a Beagle)

    Attention All New Members
    I had a dog in my childhood, and then again in early 20s. The first one was a cocker spaniel. The second one was a 4-year-old rescue (lived to 14 years old). Both of these experiences were mostly amazing (especially with the rescue), and I couldn't wait to get another dog. Now I finally have a...
  6. Puppy Help (Prior to Puppy Class)

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hello! My boyfriend and I adopted our pup, Ruby, 2 and a half weeks ago and we absolutely LOVE her. She is a 15 pound, 12 week old Australian Cattle dog (possibly mixed with a Border Collie) and she's a sweetie (at least half the time :wink:). The other half of the time, she's a typical puppy...

    Dog Training Forum
    We have a 9 month old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. We have had her since New Years and "rescued" her from a puppy store where she looked miserable. Anyway, we have been trying our hardest to house break her to no avail. She seems to have no idea what to do once outside. She just stands there...

    Hi, My name is Andreea and I am the owner of a cutie Shar-pei named Lulu. She is extremely smart and very easy to train in the house, but impossible to handle outside. To get a bit of background on us, here is our story in short: I got her when she was 2 mo. old. She was extremely smart and...

  10. Newbie from NYC

    Attention All New Members
    Hi, I recently adopted an adorable shih tzu from a local shelter. The poor baby was living in a puppy mill for the first few years of his life. He's generally doing great and adapting well to a much more pampered life. With that said, I'm having a lot of difficulty with walking him. Despite...
  11. Help! Dog refuses to walk on a leash.

    Dog Training Forum
    I recently adopted a one year old female Australian Shepherd. She is, in nearly every respect, the perfect dog. My wife and I looked at many different breeds before adopting, and decided that an Aussie was a good dog for us due to their intelligence, temperament and size. We were aware of the...
  12. Maybelle's new stubborn streak...

    Dog Training Forum
    My two-year-old blue heeler Maybelle has always been incredibly obedient under most circumstances. She has one trick in particular where she picks up her toys when I ask her to, leaves them outside/inside (depending on the toy), fixes her mistake when she sneaks an "outside ball" in, or brings...

All he wants is "people food". It doesn't matter if it's the toast I just burnt or a frozen greenbean on the floor...
