I have a 4 year old dog hes a border collie mix. He never learned to walk on a leash but now ive been trying to train him. A week ago i tried the halti headcollar and that worked for a few days , I have to walk him on the side of the road cause on the sidewalk he just wants to mark everything. But yesterday when a car drove past us he jumped up trying to pull me towards it and almost got out of his collar. There isnt alot of traffic or anything just one and one car. Ive walked him there for 2 months now and he hasnt acted like this before. Im really scared to walk him now since he has been close to getting loose to the driving cars. I will get him neutered soon but im wondering if that will help at his age? Also walking him he just keeps pulling, i have tried stopping and turning around with giving him treats. But as soon as i start walking he pulls again so i get really impatient. Its really hard to get his attention both inside and outside. I cant play with him cause he barks at me when i pick up his toy. Im almost giving up cause i feel bad everyday for him not getting the exercise he needs. I love him too much to give him away to someone who would be able to train him. I know i should get a trainer but i live in a country with small population so there arent many options. It would also be expensive for that reason. What should i do?

I have a 19 month husky and she is so bad she has chewed 3 big holes in my apartment carpet, chewed a big hole in my couch, chewed a hole in my mattress, I'm on sheet number 6 because she keeps shredding them, and she's chewed 3 pillows. She's very protective of my husband. She grawls at you when you try to kiss her and will snip at you. You can't take ANYTHING away from her she will grawl and bite. She runs my household so bad and I hate. We have a 8 month baby and I don't wanna get rid of her but we've tried everything.

My dog has a major aggression issue. Before when I first got her she was nice and greeted everyone but ever since after having a puppies her behavior changed. She started going outside attacking every person and dog that passes by on our street. We built a gate but she still manages to push it open. Now everyone has to carry a stick or weapon of some kind everytime they walk down our street.

Jesse asks...This question is about:
My dog does not like it when he is left alone as we have gotten him from a family who has a ranch and big area and a bunch of other dogs which he used socialize with. So he cries ans sqeals when he is alone. We recently got him so do you think he will adjust to this, we have a cage on the way what do you think we should do?
