This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger

We adopted Betsy from the Animal Humane Association just over three weeks ago. She is a great walker, but at times she makes it difficult to get the leash on her. She will run around or just sit and ignore her. Other times it easy to leash her. Any suggestions as when it is difficult I just give up and go without her.

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger

My dog is a 2yr old German Shepard American Staffordshire Terrier mix. She has no problem with people. She gets very territorial with other dogs when it comes to the area where she eats, toys, and her space in general. Off leash walks and dog parks she is fine, but will violent bark at other dogs when she is on a leashed walk. She also is very territorial of our house with a few dogs in our neighborhood. What is the most effective way to stop her from this behavior?

This question is about: Separation Anxiety Other

We recently found this dog abandoned and starving. We took her in and she and my husband clicked right away. But she is terrified of me, and even more so after I gave her a bath. She won't come to me unless I'm sitting on the ground or laying on the couch then she will lay on my chest. But if in standing or squatting she will not come to me. And if I approach her she runs or cowers down and crawls. She won't sleep on the bed like my other dog, she just sits in the corner opposite of me until she gets tired she will lay down there. When I leave the house she completely destroys it. Chews up everything, tears stuff up, drags everything out, and goes potty in the house (only when no one is home but her and my other dog Roudy who is well behaved so I know for a fact he isn't doing this) How do I make her not be afraid of me? And how can I help with the separation anxiety before she destroys everything I own? :( help please!
