I rescued a German Shepherd about 4-5 months ago. She's 9 months old now. She's a sweet, fun dog. But she still shows signs of anxiety when she's in public (flattening her ears, cowering down, tail between her legs, nipping, etc); as well as more moderate signs when it's just me and her (flattening her ears when I approach her). How can I help her overcome it?

Please help! My dog Koda is 6 and he growls at my husband. In fairness my husband hates the dog and I am sure Koda can sense that. My husband says if I do not make him stop we will have to get rid of him. This is really upsetting my kids so we are trying to find ways to correct this behavior. Suggestions PLEASE

Our dog has been our "furbaby" (Pizzle) now for about 4 years. He is very attached to me and always needs to be near me and loves a lot of attention. We not have an 11 month old baby (Henry) who he is struggling to get used to. Pizzle gets very irritated when the baby gets close and now that he is crawling and being more mobile Pizzle has just been getting more irritated. We always watch them together but twice within this week Pizzle has bitten Henry. The first time Henry got ahold of his tail so we were hoping this was self defense and have been extra careful. The second time Henry just touched Pizzles back. Neither time hs broken skin but i dont want to wait until he does something worse. We have been looking into training but I am wondering if this will even fix this problem or if we should look into finding a home for him that can give him undivided attention. I am so torn, Pizzle is apart of our family too but I also can't risk Henry. Please help!

This question is about: Toileting

Putter has been peeing in the house. We take him outside often and watch him like a hawk when he is in the house. When we find the pee using a black light, we super clean the area. But somehow he manages to pee again. How can we break him of this habit?
