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

Okay my family got a new puppy a few years ago but then my parents got divorsed and about a year ago I moved back in with my mom and my dog stayed at my dads I havent seen him sense april of 2013 and I am planing to take him stuff for Christmas but today my brother said he had gotten agressive... This dog had never biten anyone even when playing. and he said some days he wpnt even let you touch him. My cousin lives down the hill and says that he is chained up alot more now and they rarley do anything with himand I am affraid he isnt getting enough attention so he has became mean... And I was thinking that he would be happy to see me because I would let him sleep in my bed and give him what ever he wanted and.now I am not there but my brother also mentioned that he.gets agressive with food which he never did befor. and for Christmas I always get hin treats and raw.hides and that kind of stuff but I would like to know differant things that would cause him to become agressive. Thank you soo much in advanse. I am thankful for any help!

This question is about: Separation Anxiety Toileting

I have a 2yr old Cockerel Spaniel named Barney, a 1yr old Lab/Chow mix named Sam, and a 2yr old mix breed cat named Lucy. All the animals get along just great. I kennel train the dogs. I also have 2 kids so the dogs get plenty of exercise running after balls and sticks. Barney is new to the family. He ran up to my son outside one day and hasn't left. We took him to get his shots and fixed and brought him inside. Before he ever came inside I made sure he pooped and pee'ed outside in the spot where I want him to go. I'm not new to training dogs. I'm by no means a professional but every dog I've trained has been successful. Barney is giving me a little difficulty. I will send him and Sam out to go potty and Barney will sit on the porch until I let them back in then he will go potty inside. He tends to gravitate towards the carpets. I've tried leaving him out longer, leaving him in the kennel longer after meals, (there is no free eating), and walking out with him and giving him a treat when he goes. Still when I send him out without supervision he sits and waits on the porch then goes potty as soon as he's back inside. Not sure how to combat this.

This question is about: Toileting

my dog still poops in the house. I ask her a lot of times if she wants to go outside. she also does whine and bark at me when I am in bed, sometimes when I am sitting out in the livingroom she will to tell me I am assuming that she waqnts to go out. but then there are times where I have let her out for like 15 mins and she still goes downstairs like 5 mins later and will poop in the room. can you tell me how to fix this?
