  1. Basic Command Training for Chow Chow Pup

    Dog Training Forum
    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.

  2. Puppy peeing outside my room door

    Dog Training Forum
    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?
  3. Border Collie refuses to be potty trained

    Dog Training Forum
    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...
  4. I'm lost (puppy whining at night)

    Dog Training Forum
    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...

  6. Training without treats. Help.

    Dog Training Forum
    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...
  7. Puppy was sleeping through the night, now wakes up!

    General Dog Forum
    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...
  8. Dog won't stop barking at my father.

    Dog Training Forum
    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...

  13. Reintroducing new puppy to an existing dog

    Attention All New Members
    I probably did everything wrong in the book when I brought home a homeless puppy to my home. I did one thing right when I allowed my dog to sniff the puppy and have them go for a bathroom break together before bring them to my house. However the puppy didn't know the boundaries and bothered my...
