Tyler asks...This question is about:
My puppy is resource agressive. Mostly with her food and bones. She gets fed 3 times every day and at the same times. We have tried trading, and feeding her from our hands. She also bites me and thinks it's a game whenever I try any punishment. She is very smart and a great dog other than these actions.

Taja Rae asks...This question is about:
We adopted our fur son a few months ago. He is an amazing dog. We specifically chose him from the pound because he was friendly with other dogs and need a service dog for our son who has Autism. He is neutered. He's a house dog. We are regulars at the dog park and he plays outside everyday. However, my schedule has changed and haven't been taking him to the dog park as often as I'd like. I'm not able to take him in walks as often either. In the most recent times we've gone to the dog park I've been noticing aggressive behavior. At times a bit scary. This is not like him at all. He is acting like a completely different dog. Could this be because we're not socializing enough or could it be my change of hours? Please help us! What should I do to correct this behavior and what do you think are the factors?
Jennifer asks...This question is about:
So I've had Gizmo for 3 years. He's the friendliest 11lbs of fur I've ever met. He came to me by chance when a friend found him neglected and homeless, and all shelters were full up. I love my dog, but it's been hard. I'm a single person in the military and I've been away for the past year. I am certain he's had set backs in training in recent months being at my parents place, but I want to make the transition back to my home as stress free as possible. He has anxiety issues already and we will be moving to a new base in a few months and will be living in an apartment. He likes to bark when I leave the house, and I can't really blame him because I do go away a lot. How can I ensure that moving him from my parents place to my place, and then to the city is stress free and second question what can I do to help combat the barking. I've read and looked at collars and these sound eggs at the pet stores but I'm not sure what the best approach is.

I'm working on training with my German shepherd and I'm finding it hard to use the positive reinforcement approach with him. His not good oriented so if he is the lesser bit distracted he doesn't care about receiving a treat. Any suggestions?
