  1. My dog is afraid of the dark. Can I help her get over it?

    General Dog Forum
    Hello folks. I posted here a while ago because my dog had begun crying in her crate after months of being perfectly fine in there. Everybody who commented was very helpful, but one problem that I mentioned in that post has persisted even though Fiver is now once again comfortable in the crate...
  2. Stopping while walking

    Dog Training Forum
    I just got a 4 month old American Bulldog puppy. She has been great so far, pretty good with going potty outside, super social, picks up commands quickly I am really enjoying having her for the past few days. However, one thing that I have noticed that is frustrating is getting her to...
  3. Thoughts on Harnesses

    General Dog Forum
    A rambling bit follows. Read, or skip to the last paragraph to just voice your opinion on chest harnesses instead of collars. I'm curious about other people's results. Dante is a beagle/yellow lab mutt. Or beagle/chihuahua, if you ask to the confused-sounding animal control lady who was...

  6. Too cold to walk a 7 y/o ACD female?

    Dog Training Forum
    How cold is too cold? I recently have been walking my 7 year old female ACD at night around midnight because it's usually the last thing I do before I got to bed. Now, my dad argues that the cold temperature is not good for her. So I am wondering what is a decent temperature for her. She...

  11. Do your small dogs think they are big?

    Attention All New Members
    OK...Is it just Chihuahuas and Yorkies or do all small dogs think they are the largest dogs in the pack? My Chiwat Lolita can be in a little pink dress weighing all of 4 lbs and think she can take on the Mastiff going by. And what is that owner thinking...Eat that little dog already? Napoleon...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions

  14. Smokey bit a skateboarder

    Dog Training Forum
    My 3 yr old shepherd mix has always been overly excited by skateboarders and lunges & barks when we walk and is getting worse. Recently I wasn't paying attention (didn't hear the usual "clackety-clack of the board) and he lunged across the sidewalk to bite a skateboarder. He's shown this...
  15. 1yr old adoption who's never met a leash before. Help with walking.

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Firstly I hope this is in the correct location. I have a 2 yr male old Aussie/Jack Russel Mix. He came from a family that probably ignored him and didn't want him with kids who probably poked/kicked/hit him. So he was under exercised and a ball of pent-up-energy when we got him. With regular...
