Jonathan asks...This question is about:
I am having a lot of trouble housebreaking my dog. Every time I feel like I'm making headway he eliminates inside. Whenever he is not crated, I have been taking outside every 15 minutes and also anytime he goes to the back door and sniffs at it. I praise him for peeing outside and give him a training treat every time he eliminates outside. rnYet he still will sneak a pee inside, and when I say sneak a pee, I mean he pees while walking, you would never even know it unless you had eagle eyes on him like I do. rnrnI've even started doing the ubilical cord method where I keep him leashed and talk to him while he's not crated. This seems to help, but he still snuck a pee on me today while leashed and he had just been outsidernrnTo make matters worse, I had to get a bigger crate because he outgrew the one he had, but he is stuck in between sizes. It's either too small or too big and he actually pees in the crate(sometimes he points pee outside of the crate), even with only being in there for one hour. I don't know where he learned the leg lift because he was neutered before he started lifting his leg.rnrnNow I know he can hold it, because he can go 8 hours at night without eliminating in the crate.rnrnThis leads me to beleive he is still purposefully choosing to eliminate inside and I don't know what to do.rnrnI'm at the point where I'm spending so much of my day trying to housebreak him that I'm doing nothing else and considering rehoming him. I need help. What should I do?
Devyn asks...This question is about:
My dog shows aggression when he sees another dog on a walk towards us, our other boxer Zeus and that other dog. We have no idea why either. His hair stands up and he attempts to bite either Zeus, us or the other dog. It only happens when we go for walks and when he is our fenced in backyard and another dog walks by. Any help is greatly appreciated
Matt asks...This question is about:
We have two dogs a small, older dog (6 years) and a larger, younger dog (2 years). rnWhen I walk the two dogs together (each on its own leash) the older dog is content to walk behind or alongside the younger dog. rnBut when my wife walks the younger dog and I walk the older one, the older dog INSISTS on being in the lead. He will pull and tug and whine if the younger dog gets even a little bit ahead of him. rnWhy such a change in behavior?rn(I don't know if it matters, but my wife always walks the younger dog and I always walk the older one.)

Tom asks...This question is about:
We rescued our dog four months ago. He is a good dog except for one fault. Either when he plays or wants attention his behavior changes from nice to aggressive biting and barking. Outside he will charge at you, if you turn your back to avoid eye contact he bites your back side. Those bites do hurt. He is trainable. His walks on the leash are for the most part good.rnrnBesides any advise you can provide how much do you charge per session?
