  2. Potty training help

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog is an 8 month dog old golden retriever and he will only poop in a certain place a certain way far from my apartment. He will only go poop if he is off leash and in the complex dog park. I want him to be able to go wherever outside or at least on command. How do I get him out of the habit...
  3. My puppy knows "bed" but won't actually sleep there!

    Dog Training Forum
    We're trying to crate train this puppy. He learned the word "bed" just this morning. So whenever we say "bed," he goes inside his crate and then we give him snacks there. He's not really scared inside or anything. Although sometimes, when we close the door, he'd cry after five minutes. Maybe for...
  4. Does my pup poop and pee to get treats?

    Dog Training Forum
    I know it sounds like a silly question. It's his behavior that I have been observing since yesterday. So, my puppy, Milo was brought to our home just yesterday. He seems like a very smart pup. He makes poo and pee accidents on the tiled floor sometimes, but most of the time, he poops and pees...

  7. Papillon BamBam

    Attention All New Members
    I found this forum on Google when searching for behavioral issues of Papillons. I have a 9 month old male Papillon neutered. I believe that I may spoil him, but am not sure. BamBam is increasingly aggressive toward my 3 cats. He nips at them, chases them and will even scrap with them. He also...
  8. Training Treats for a Senistive Stomach?

    Dog Food Forum
    Hello! I'm currently having some issues finding good snacks to give my dog when we're training. Yesterday we were working on our recall at the dog park, and I remembered back when we did puppy classes we were told things like cheese and hot dogs were good training treats. He can be difficult to...
  9. Why we need to understand the science and veterinary medicine of aggression

    General Dog Forum
    I believe there is a tiny bit of mostly forgotten research about so-called "Cocker Rage Syndrome" in cocker spaniels and other breeds, or Sudden Onset Aggression, a possibly seizure-related or disorder, which has been most extensively researched by Dr Ilana Reisner. Her work traces this form of...

  12. 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...
  13. Clicker training: speed bump or road block?

    Dog Training Forum
    I wanted to incorporate a clicker into my dog's training. I gave him his favorite training treat while I used the clicker to get him use to it and the fact that it meant good things but after just a few times he started to turn his head and not take the treat (I was clicking it as he took the...
  14. Introducing new dog to the pack HELP!

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello everyone, I have a 11 year old mountain feist (similar to a jack russell) and a 6 year old blue pit. I got both of them when they were about 6 weeks old. The pit gets along with the feist, probably because the feist was 5 when the pit was a puppy so he grew up with him. My brother has...

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 1 year 4 month old Morkiepoo. I've been trying to train him on my own but I think we might benefit from a class. I have trained him to sit, stay, shake when a treat is involved but I can't seem to transition him into being motivated without seeing the treat. His leash behavior use to be...
