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

My pit/lap pup is about 10 or 11 weeks old. She is adorable and very friendly but when I get on the floor to play with her she gets ferocious. She bites hard and if I tell her NO during play it will only make her bark at me and get more aggressive. I'm thinking it might be best not to play with her at all. I read that I should yelp in pain if she bites too hard because it tells her she's playing too rough, but when I tried that she came at me even more because I was submitting. Sometimes I can't tell if she's still playing because she gets so into it. She also gives a little nip when she's licking me which I don't like. I just don't want her to become too aggressive but I want her to be able to play with me and be active so I'm torn. Should I just not play with her anymore or is there some way to get her to stop being so aggressive during play?

This question is about: Toileting Other

Our two male Dachsunds continue to mark urine even though they have doggie door access to the nice fenced-in yard. They seem to like to hit our 11 year old son's room the most, and seem to like to target objects that get set on the floor.

This question is about: Separation Anxiety Other

Abby is actually my boyfriend's dog. He has had her since she was about 1 year old and therefore is very attached to her. He has always let Abby sleep next to the bed. While my boyfriend is a heavy sleeper, I am not at all. I am a very light sleeper. Abby snores like a chainsaw at night and also shakes the bed with her vivid dreams (running in her sleep and such). I have had to take sleeping pills or move to the couch myself just to get sleep. I asked if he would have her sleep on her dog bed in the living room so that I can get sleep at night. He said he didn't want to do that because making her sleep in the living room alone would be neglecting her. What do I do?
