    General Dog Forum
    I need advice on whether or not to travel or leave my ~10 week old puppy behind with a friend for an upcoming trip.

  2. Food Rewards for Small Dogs?

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a small terrier mix who I’m doing a lot of training with and I’ve been wondering what people’s suggestions are when it comes to treats for smaller dogs. With my larger dog, I can easily give her plenty of small training treats during sessions and jackpots of a few treats at a time when...
  3. Potty training rescue dog

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hello there, I recently (as in 2 weeks ago recently) adopted a 5 year old pitbull. He's a great dog and super easy to train, except when it comes to potty training and kenneling. First and foremost, he will only poop inside, never outside despite me taking him on 4 long walks a day. It doesn't...
  4. 7 month old Husky barks every morning at 6 AM

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 7 month old Husky named Shadow, every morning around 6 AM he barks. For a while I figured he just needed to go out which was our norm, he'd go out, do his business and then come back inside. Now instead of going outside to do his business he either walks around my living room or goes...

  7. Puppy getting more unruly, going after feet

    Dog Training Forum
    Let me start by saying I am not looking for a long-term solution, as this is not my animal; my wife and I live with my grandparents and we are moving soon (two states away). My grandparents recently got a queensland heeler mix puppy (against the advice I gave them to get an older dog) named...

    Hello! I've done some training with my 1 year old Catahoula Leopard Dog named PJ. We've taught him "Off" (stop and lay down) "Here" "Sit" "Find it" (hunt for his toy) "wait" and "full run" (his release command to go run around and do whatever he wants). I had been training him by saying...

    Hi, So I recently moved into an townhouse with my mini weenie. He has always had a yard to go potty in so the adjustment to leash walking for potty reasons is hard.

  16. 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...

    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...
