This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household Separation Anxiety

Lately he's become aggressive when laying down. If anyone goes to touch him or even accidentally bumps him, he will snap at them. He's bitten me twice now and my parents are in complete denial. I've thought of a couple reasons why: (1) we got a new dog last year and sometimes they have scuffles but nobody ever gets hurt or (2) my mom is his "main human" and she works a lot and is away 6-12 hours most days. While she's gone he lays in the same spot most of the time, has his ears layed back and his whole demeanor is just sad.

This question is about: Hyperactivity Pulling on the Lead

My dog Mack is very difficult to walk on a leash. He pulls excessively. We have tried different methods of training, gentle leaders, harnesses, etc. Nothing seems to work. We have resorted to wrapping a retractable leash around his mid section so that it pinches him uncomfortably when he pulls. I do not like this option, so I was wondering if you could offer us any other alternatives.

Erin asks...

This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Digging Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Puppy Management Recall or not coming when called Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household Separation Anxiety

We have recently adopted 2 female sibling puppies and am needing advice on how to help them ease-up on the "rough-housing', stealing treats and general obedience training. We were unaware of any"Littermate Syndrome" when we brought our girls home. 1 of them is the runt and 1/2 the size of her sister, but may actually be the dominant dog. They are sooo into themselves only and barely pay us any attention. And they play/fight together ALL THE TIME ! Sometimes it can get a little rough and won't be cute when they get older. So, we'd like a calmer household. We do have 2 other older poodles, which are fine, but skeptical about the whole thing. So, I guess I'm looking for guidance on what we should be doing to take the energy level down a bit, get them to listen to us better and for us to build a better bond with each one individually.
