This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity Separation Anxiety Toileting

I have took Kingdom to several trainers and also bought him a thunder shirt to help with his anxiety problems. When friends come over he likes to bite and this is an definite no. I want to know what I can do to help this situation.rnAlso he barks in the middle of night and barks loudly when people approach the door. I notice that Maltese don't like to urinate or do their other business on the same pads.

When going on walks with Kevin and he is meeting other dogs or hear's people talking he barks uncontrollably and pulls on the leash. It's a loud bark/cry but it almost seems as though he's just really excited and wants to go to what's stimulating him but cant. I've tried sternly staying his name, walking between him and the stimulus to break his attention, and trying to distract him in general but nothing seems to work. Is there any advise on what to do when he starts his episode.

I have had Olive since she was a puppy and she is an extremely well behaved dog, but also a very tiny dog who weighs 2.5lbs. Recently my roommate, who is my brother, got a puppy. His puppy is a German Sheppard male and is already around 11 lbs. I'm sure all this puppy is trying to do is play as he would have with his brothers and sisters, but it is too rough for my extremely small dog. His problematic forms of playing include chasing, barking incessantly, trying to swipe Olive's face with his paw, pouncing on her and biting. rnFor the most part Olive will run away, attempt to hide and on very rare occasions bark a single bark back at him after he has made physical contact with her. This new puppy has Olive so scared that she has started hiding even when he isn't around and her appetite is absolutely nonexistent. rnWhat can I do to help this new puppy understand that his behavior, though likely playful, is dangerous for a dog so small?rnThank you kindly, Ashley.

My dog is becoming increasingly aggressive (barking, growling, snapping at legs) toward guests entering our house. But more importantly, he is growling and snapping at family members who live here. He will even growl and snap at my youngest, who is 10 years old, when she enters the room and any time she comes near him. It has increased a bunch since the kids let out from school. Is he protecting me? Is he protecting the house? I am honestly afraid he is going to bite someone.

My son has two sibling Olde English Pocket Beagles. His male is very well adjusted in every area except one. He has an emotional attack when you put on or take off his harness. He shakes, won't eat (even his favorite treats). and tries to hide. Even if he just sees it, he start shaking. He's very well loved and enjoys going on walks and after a day or two will snap out of it. It's so sad and pathetic. We are all very soothing and reassuring. He's never been injured or hurt in anyway. His sister has no issues what so ever and just gets excited when she sees hers. Why would he do this.rnThank you for your time,rnSandi
