Caitlyn asks...This question is about:
My puppy bear is pretty good about going out doing his business I know his cues well. The thing is soSometimes he still goes in the house and he has peed on 2 out of 3 houses. I have cat Chester he is 4, bear is a little to intense with him right now. Bear spent the months before I had him in a house with several cats and dogs all rescues. He also barks aggressively at anyone when I walk him. He is very hyperactive likes to jump on you'd he likes to take stuff he is not supposed he wants to steal food. I am not sure if it's because he is a rescue or I have only had had since he was 3 months that he has been acting like this. He also wants bite faces and other things. I try putting my hand around his snout looking him in the eye and say no. He doesn't seem to get it. He eats the cat food we say no he won't listen. He minds me more than anyone, but I can't seem to get him to get the picture. How do I get stop these behaviors? Also is there way to get him and my cat to get along. We have dachusnd ginger that lives. Next door they see each other and bark and get aggressive but my sisters dog also a rescue mix breed gets along break. Why is he acting like this? Is it a puppy thing? He is extremley treat motivated would that help? He has almost all his adult teeth already so not sure why he goes for the face. So what is going on with my puppy. Is this permanent or can I train this out of him and how? Also my mom disciplines with a rolled up magazine he fears the magazine when it's rolled up but not sure it's an effective disciplinary technique.
Arianna asks...This question is about:
We were doing great on the potty training with her after we got her but a few weeks ago she's been pooping in the kitchen when no ones in there. We take her out hourly yet she's still doing it. I've read that you're not supposed to discipline them the way you would other dogs (rubbing their nose in it) and I haven't been, but as soon as you catch her either doing it or find it she hides like she knows she did wrong. I'm lost as to how to correct this and continue with all her training in general.
Nicole asks...This question is about:
My dog Bryn is very neurotic. She does not like strangers and is aggressive. Although she has never bitten anyone, she is extremely protective about our home and barks and charges at anyone who comes inside except for immediate family. She is a large dog and can be scary to our children's friends. We have to corral her in the kitchen when people are over. She looks like a pit, so when we walk her, people are frightened of her. She has had one friend that she played with that moved away. Quite honestly, I am not sure how she would be with other dogs and their owners don't want to chance it. She is skittish of anything new and only likes the comfort of her home and street. I would love her to be more social and comfortable in new settings. Please help!
Denise asks...This question is about:
I have not had him since birth, adopted him at 1 1/2 years. We live in an apartment, so I take him to the dogpark as much as possible so he can be off his leash. He LOVES playing ball, and doesn't really play with the other dogs. The problem has become; when another dog gets close to his ball, he attacks them. Luckily he hasn't injured another dog, but he has come away bloody himself. If I don't take his ball, he always finds another random one in the park. I can move to an area of the park less populated and all is well, but I sure do wish he could be more social for himself and for me. THANKS
Darlene asks...This question is about:
I just moved in with a friend and brought with me my standard and miniature poodle. However she has the dog named roxie. Roxie seems to feel threatened, maybe jealousy that my dogs are all of a sudden around and runs up to them and growls at them. Can this behavior be corrected?
