This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Recall or not coming when called

Doodle has gone through beginning obedience, intermediate obedience and agility training. For some reason she's going backward. I like to walk her without a leash under voice command. She did not bark at all before one year old then she realized she is a watch dog and takes her job seriously. (We're on acreage) She won't stop barking when I ask her to and doesn't respond to come the first or second time anymore. Maybe a refresher class?rnThanks!

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

Hello, I have a question about dog aggression. rnrnWe have a 2 year old English Bulldog and a 10 almost 11 month old Boxer. We have had the Bulldog since he was 11 weeks old, and the Boxer since she was 4 weeks old. Our dogs are inseparable. Everything they do, they do together. Whether it be sleeping (cuddling), playing, bathing (they have to be bathed together) they even refuse to eat out of separate bowls. There has never been any aggression between the two. rnrnOur Bulldog has always been a submissive dog, and has never had any issues with other dogs. Our Boxer is very friendly and playful with other dogs. Recently when we have taken them to the dog park, our bulldog has become somewhat aggressive towards other dogs if they are playing with our Boxer. He is neutered, our boxer has not been spayed yet though. We are unsure of how to correct his behavior with other dogs. Any advice is very much welcome.

I have two questions: rnrn1. Is there any particular reason why Dobby likes to get on top of the back of a sofa or recliner/chair? He gets up there as if it were her perch. To watch and sometimes he sleeps there. I have yet to find any evidence to back up or support the idea that he is trying to be "alpha."rnrn2. I never discouraged barking at strangers (of course), but once I have let someone inside my house he still barks. I'm trying to teach him to not bark at someone once I have let them in the house. Not luck so far. Any suggestions?

This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Digging Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

He is very friendly and sweet but he's having destructive and fear behaviors. Know some is related to stress and boredom but because of inclement weather and also because of foot and fear problems not getting a lot of exercise though I play with him outside a lot. I'm a senior and it's getting very difficult . Don't know what to do and at wits end.
