    Hi! I recently got a young purebred German Shepard puppy named Arya. I've noticed that when she goes to potty on her pee pad, she circles around the pad and then goes to pee on the edge. Should I move her when she pees on the edge, or leave her be and clean up any mess that misses the pad? Would...

    Hey guys! So I recently adopted a mixed breed pup from my local shelter they had no idea what he was but they believed he was a terrier. After my own research and taking him to my local vet for vaccinations and a check up I found out he’s a Belgium malinois and terrier mix. We absolutely love...

    After watching endless hours of puppy training videos on YouTube I've become utterly lost in what I'm doing. It seems that every trainer has different dos and don'ts. But is there a universal set of rules when training a puppy? My vet recommended a dog trainer here in town. The trainer wanted...

    We have an 8week old that we got 2 days ago. We’ve been working on potty training with a bell on the door and taking it out every 2 hrs, unless he’s sound asleep. I just read about indoor potty training with pine pellets instead of the pads. We are having a lot of rain here and he doesn’t seem...

    I recently got a Labradoodle puppy. He is 9 weeks old as of yesterday, so still a baby! Following picking him up, I took a week off of work to help him to get adjusted to our home. I have made sure he gets along well with our golden retriever and teaching the basics of potty training. He does...

    Hi this is my first post on this site. I just got a 15 week chow chow pup I named Blair. She’s a very sweet, friendly and calm puppy. But I’m having a hard time training her for basic command (stay, sit, come, etc) I tried using a clicker and treats but after speaking to the breeder, she said...

    My puppy is in the midst of house training and he recognizes the pee tray as his toilet but as soon as I shut my room door, he goes right outside. I know he wants to come in but I'm trying to teach him that he cant always be in my room. How do I stop him from doing this?

    My girlfriend has a 6 month old border collie who we have been trying to potty train for some time. He has a lot of accidents, but not in the usual sense. We take him out quite often, and he goes every time we do. He is trained in that regard. He is also trained to come, sit, and other basic...

    Hello everyone! I have seen a question kind of similar to mine asked here before, but after many sleepless nights my questions have doubled. I have a puppy at 2 and a half months old, she is a mixed breed, but in my opinion very much jack russell-y :D. We (my mom and I) got her at 45 days...

    Hi! Does anyone have some training tips/basic tips for a new shiba owner? I want to prepare for the puppy and give my self the best chance to not be "trained" by the dog instead knowing their fiery personalities :)

    My puppy doesn't have an interest in treats. I have tried bacon, beef, and chicken. He just sniffs the treat and then looks at me. I find this odd because he is half German Shepherd, which are known to be food hounds. So without the use of treats I am in need of guidance on how to train him...

    Hello! I thought I had my 10 week old puppy down on a good schedule. He'd go to bed around 10-11pm and we'd wake up around 6-7am. He is crate trained, and prefers to sleep in his crate. The first week he was waking up in the middle of the night to use the restroom, but now he holds it until I...

    My 11 month old small dog is quiet most of the time. He might bark every now and then at a noise or a stranger the 5 second before he falls in love with them and he barks at the opossum that come around at night. But he won't stop barking at my dad. They get along great. He especially loves my...

    I have a 6 month old cocker spaniel/chihuahua mix named Osha... She's full of energy, loves everyone and is very smart! We've been training her from the minute we got her (at 4 months)-- she knows many commands and responds well. We've been socializing her like crazy, too. I've taken her on the...

    I've read sososoo many threads on getting my puppy to play fetch with me, but she's completely 0% interested in the game. Okay... I'm selling her short. She's about 10% interested in the game. The only way I can get her to even go after the ball is if I either chase her, or race her to the...
