    We have 3 dogs at our house, a 14 year old shih poo (female), and 2 small terrier mix’s from the same litter who are 9 (1 female and 1 male). The female terrier is very submissive to humans and other dogs. The male is submissive to humans but is very aggressive to other dogs that are not ours...

    Long story short, my dog (2 year old, mix breed, female) used to be pretty good at fetching. My friend’s dog stays with us sometimes, and he isn’t so good at it. When he fetches he never brings the toy back. While trying to correct his fetching, my dog thinks now that the point is to run, grab...

    Hoping I can get some advice here. 9 year old, 65lb dog (lab/cattle/everything under the sun mix) that I've had for past 5 years has started getting increasingly more aggressive at the door. For some background, he always has barked if there is a knock or doorbell, but the second the person is...

    Hey everyone, I have a 2 year old chiweenie mix, Hypatia. She is sweet, but she is constantly chewing up EVERYTHING. I’m starting to go crazy. Shoes, remotes, chargers, clothes. You name it, it’s probably been chewed on by her. My fiancé and I have 3 dogs total, so she’s not our first rodeo...

    Hello! I have had my dog for 9 months now she is just under a year old and I have been having problems with her peeing everywhere! It's not a house training issue in the sense that she doesn't go anywhere for no reason. She usually pees when we get home or if she gets excited or if she thinks...

    Hi! I'm just curious to know when you think is the best time of day to train your dog or puppy? It's said that sleeping helps retain anything you've learned throughout the day. I assume it's the same with all living things. When have you found to be the best time to train your pup? In the...

    The other day I had the idea of training my dog to go to the bathroom underneath a pine tree in our backyard. But then I got to thinking, would that cause any harm to the tree? Would too much urine help destroy the tree over a long period of time? Or maybe the feces would cause problems with the...

    My dog goes crazy barking at dogs and weird looking people while in the car. I want to buy him a Bark collar to help me teach him that it's not alright to do this. Shock, vibe, and ultrasonic collars are out of the question; leaving Spray. I've heard and seen some of the Spray Collars that are...

    Has anyone had experience with the Groovypets training collar? I want to use it solely for recall only since my dog breed has the tendency to run. I have read that many owners have used these collars to train them, but I can never find contact info. If you do use the collar for training, when...

    I have a miniature dachshund boy that is 4 years old. I have tried several methods to train him with no success. He constantly barks at who/whatever he wants to, he stands by the door when he wants to go out (somehow) and even if I take him out he will still poop in the house without hesitation...

    Hello everyone! So I have a Icelandic Sheepdog, 3,5 months old. Quite active and eager to work. I thought that teaching him to play fetch would help do some more activity outdoors (As well as helping for other "tricks" such as picking up stuff). I have tried the method: praise when he holds on...

    Alright, so my girl knows how to stay. BUT only if I am right with her. What I mean is, if I tell her to stay and then open a door, she is pretty good at staying. If I tell her to stay, then try and walk away... Different story. She is very attached to me, and a fairly nervous dog. She hates...

  15. First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I am a first time dog owner, and our dog is about 6 months old. The people we bought her from had her, as a puppy, accustomed to sleeping in a crate. We have always done the same, she sleeps in a crate at night. This was fine when she was a puppy, as she slept a lot, but now she seems to have...

    So I don't like to spank a dog when he/she does bad things. On the other hand my friend feels completely different. His dog is very obedient! Very!!!! I didn't agree with spanking my dog until he told me that, in the wild a dominant dog doesn't tell the dog no and stop it etc etc. It snaps and...

    Hey everyone! Me and Sage, the border collie, are new to the forum and stuck in our training =[ She is 2 years old and knows how to: sit, lay, speak, paw, play dead, roll over and stay. She learned all of this before I ever heard of clicker training. Since I've heard of it, I've tried using it...

    Help, my 10 week old lab mix just started barking at everything! He'll bark at anything new, and at me if I try and tell him not to do something. I tried to teach him quiet, and then to speak, but it's only gotten worse. Today I've tried putting him in his crate when he does it, but I don't...

    Hi everyone, I have a beagle named Missy. She is such a sweetheart, but I am having obedience problems with her. When she was younger, I was irresponsible with her and I let her roam around outside without any care in the world. I grew up after a year of realizing what having a dog is really...
