Midas likes to find as much trash or rugs or anything else he can find and drag it out into the yard. I would make him stop, but I'm at work most of the time, and never catch him doing it. How do I make him stop? Is it just because he's a pup?

I just introduced a new dog into our home yesterday and Rosco doesn't like it. When they go out in the yard together, Bruno tries to play with Rosco, but Rosco doesn't think he's playing so he starts bearing teeth and growling. I used to take Rosco to the dog park all the time and he never had issues with other dogs, unless they attacked him first, which isn't the case here. Another problem is Bruno's response to the snarling, Bruno goes right from play-mode and tried to attack Rosco just because Rosco is telling him to back off. It seems they're both dominant dogs. How do I socialize them properly?

My husband and I have a lot of experience with Shelties. Last year we adopted a little female that had been abused by a man. She is aggressive towards all men and visitors. She barks excessively and has nipped a few times. She will not listen to me when out of control and we are at our wits end. What can we do?

My 6 year old Rottweiler has been having some displaced aggression issues. I have three dogs and they all get along wonderfully when I am home. Sometimes however if I am not home and they are all outside togeather a fight will break out with my Rott being the instigator and my very submissive 5 year old female beagle mix as her target. From what I can gather from neighbors and cameras ( as I'm never home) it always starts with my Rott being very agitated and frustrated at something outside the fence, usually my one neighbor who is mean to them and throws things in my yard and screams, when she can't get at said neighbor she turns her frustration on the little one instead . Now no one gets hurt to bad during these scuffles. A minor puncture wound or two at the most. However it is taking an extreme emotional toal on my beagle mix. She has become afrade of everything. I have taken them both to Obedience classes, I have done bonding exercises with them, and they get along great when I'm home. How do I alleviate my Rottweilers frustration so she does not feel the need to take it out on the little one? I have started to keep them separate if I have to leave but I feel guilty crating her if I have to be gone all day while the other two get full rain outside. Any advice would be appreciated.
