  1. Excited Urination

    Dog Training Forum
    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...
  2. best time of the day to train YOUR dog

    Dog Training Forum
    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...
  3. Ok to train dog to do its business under a tree?

    Dog Training Forum
    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...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    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.

    General Dog Forum
    I have a miniature dachshund boy that is 4 years old. I have tried several methods to train him with no success.

  8. Teaching Retrieve/Fetch

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello everyone! So I have a Icelandic Sheepdog, 3,5 months old. Quite active and eager to work.

I have tried the method: praise when he holds on...
  9. Help with "stay'!

    Dog Training Forum
    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...

    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.

  13. Teaching with firm voice vs physical contact

    Dog Training Forum
    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...
