Hey, was emailing regarding my new puppy. He is currently being crate trained and has been great. I did a lot of research on the crate training and in the beginning I know it most important on training the dog properly. He's been in the crate majority of the time but we take him out every 2 hours to go outside. He sleeps 5 hours through the night though. Now he is obsessed with his crate. Is that normal? Or should we take him out more? If we take him out all he wants to do is go back in his crate. If we take him out should it be in the apartment? Or only outside right now. I don't want him to have any accidents in the house and not sure when we can let him play in the house for a little

Miss T spent years in the show ring to achieve AKC Championship status. She lived with the breeder and 9 other Yorkies. She is supposedly paper trained. This is seldom the case. She occasionally goes on the pads but repeatedly goes wherever and whenever. Is it possible to train her? I feel badly as Miss T has no clue about playing, walking on a leash other than in a show manner, or simply enjoying being a dog.
Amy asks...This question is about:
I got a new puppy about three weeks ago. She has been very sweet natured and has been training very well. She is great with my other animals and my kids. My kids are very gentle with all animals at all times and have been so with her. She became suddenly aggressive towards my other dog and my daughter yesterday. She was fine with everyone else. She attacked my dog, and tried to attack my daughter for no apparent reason. When she attacked my dog, he walked into the living room and she went for him unprovoked. The same with my daughter, but she was on a leash at the time and my son held her back. (My son is 14, and my daughter is 6). After the fits of aggression, the puppy fell asleep and slept for several hours and we couldn't wake her. She seems to be back to normal today. What could have caused this?

We picked up Bodie as a rescue dog. Vet told us he was about 6-7 months old when we got him. He has been in our care for about three months now. Our main issues:rn1-Bitting and mouthingrn2-Doesn't come when called and runs away like it's play time when we approach himrn3-Extremely timid with anyone outside my wife and me and any new environment outside the groundsrnrnClearly Bodie was/has not been socialized in his early days. What would be the best way to get him trained and how to fix the above mentioned issues?rnrnThank you in advance for your help!rnrnCheers,rnrnScott
