    Dog Training Forum
    I have a Jack Russell mix named Jojo who has lived with us since December (she was found abandoned in the country). She's approximately a year old. She's the youngest dog I've ever had. The first dog I adopted was 10-years-old, and my second dog was six-years-old when I adopted her. So Jojo's...

    Dog Training Forum
    My wife and I recently got a new Golden Retriever puppy a little more than a month ago and have been training her ourselves. She is about 14 weeks old and is doing well, but I was hoping to get some advice from some seasoned veterans in terms of making the walks more enjoyable. I've read a...
  3. Dog walking training, no treats

    Dog Training Forum
    Personally I'm not willing to take the dog out with treats or any training accessory. But for the past year, my small to medium sized dog has been pulling on the leash and I'm developing back ache. It's so frustrating that I turn the dog loose on the street, with all the risks that this entails...

  7. Aggression at me when walking on leash

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 9 month old Black Lab/Plott hound mix. Lately, he's been becoming aggressive towards me while walking him on the leash. He'll either try to bite at my ankles or begin biting the leash and pulling away from me and when I reel him in he begins to mouth me. At first, he never bit hard...
  8. How to walk one dog, but not the other?

    Dog Training Forum
    I have two excellent little young dogs. They are pretty well behaved. I can leave both of them at home with no separation anxiety. And they both behave pretty well on walks. The biggest problem is that I would sometimes want to take one of them for a walk without the other one. The smaller one...
  9. Help! Dog refuses to walk on a leash.

    Dog Training Forum
    I recently adopted a one year old female Australian Shepherd. She is, in nearly every respect, the perfect dog. My wife and I looked at many different breeds before adopting, and decided that an Aussie was a good dog for us due to their intelligence, temperament and size. We were aware of the...

    I have a 7 month old lab mix rescue named Tom. I am currently working with him on teaching him the boundary around my 4 acre yard. He is doing good so far, but I am worried if I take him on a walk I will ruin the progress I've made. Do you think walking him will confuse him? It's not a...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello! Let me show you a video about a 12 weeks old puppy walking in the city following his master without leash: We are sure that we can only lose this behaviour, by the lack of awareness. I wish dog owners could be informed about the basics of dog-and-owner-relationship, and be helped not...

  20. Walking the dogs together, or seperately?

    General Dog Forum
    Okay, right now I'm trying to walk all three dogs at once which is kind of difficult. Kodi likes to take the lead (not pulling on the leash or anything, he's just more confident when he goes for walks), Gizmo who's very confident in walking as well, and Taz, the shy guy. So I've basically got...
