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

Roxy is very hyper and I can't touch her or pet her without her jumping and biting, she has been this way at young age. I have to keep her tied up to avoid her from getting into plants, under the house or just from destroying things. I do not want to get rid of her but my roommate is not having it anymore and says I must get rid of her. She sits, and likes to play with her toys, she especially enjoys her tire toy and will march in circle with it in her mouth. I know she is trainable with the proper training that I am not able to give. I even have high hopes that she could be a "cop" dog as my granddaughter would say.

I am in need of advice on how to train a deaf and vision impaired dog that soils the home and kennel (both marking behavior and regular defecation in floor and kennel), whines and expresses anxiety/destructive behavior when a favored human leaves the home, anxiety/whining during scheduled bed time, failure to bond/build working relationship with primary caregiver/handler, failure to adapt to family's routine daily schedule, biting history when startled and lack of response and focus on learning and consistently obeying basic house rules and obedience training.

Puppy acts aggressive to other dogs..

This question is about: Puppy Management Other

Would it be better to adopt at 13 or 17 weeks? rnrnHere are the details. I'm adopting a puppy from a shelter but am also moving from an apartment into a house in four weeks. The adoption agency gave me the option of waiting until after I've moved in to pick up the puppy so the puppy doesn't have to get a new home and then change homes 4 weeks later. rnrnI talked to some friends that have adopted puppies at both ages and they seem to think those 4 weeks are really important to a puppy's development and I should get the puppy at 13 weeks, work around the puppy's schedule through the move and start getting him used to our routine and training him as soon as possible. rnrnWhat do you think?

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

My two female yorkies have started fighting. The younger is a rescue we got her when she was about 10 months old at the time and this wasn't a problem for about the first year we had her and the older one had never shown this aggression before either. It is usually is triggered by Myself or another member of the household picking up one of them or excitement over someone getting home or going outside. It's not food aggression, it's more like attention aggression. All of a sudden there is a constant fight for dominance and neither one of them is backing down. They go from laying down calmly to instantly fighting viciously they've drawn blood from each other and from me as I broke them up. I have found the best was to de-escalate them is to leave the room, once I am no longer in the room they stop. It's getting so bad I fear I am going to have to re-home one of them for their own safety.
