Bella is neutered female, mixed breed with significant pit bull characteristics, and about 4 years old. We have had many home changes in her 5 or so years. She has always been aggressive toward strangers, but recently she has actually bitten an 8 yr old child that suppressed her walking into our driveway. This can't happen again, so I need to do something to curb her aggression. She also goes into a near frenzy of barking when someone knocks or rings the doorbell.

Our puppy Camden is overall very good. He has two bad habits and we just don't know what to do. Firstly, he jumps on us and anyone that comes over. We've tried to ignore him and say "off" but neither are working. rnNext, he's getting to rough while playing, like completely out of control. We will be sitting in the living room and he will bark at us and bite (not too hard) no matter what we do, we can't get him to stop. I try time outs by going to a different room and once we go back, he starts up again. rnI just don't want him having these bad habits at all, especially since he's growing and will be quite a bit bigger...making him that much stronger.

I have 3 dogs and they are very aggressive during Feeding time. My golden (12) is fine but the 2 female Black labs are horrendous the 18 month old barks and snaps at my golden retriever and at times goes to bite him. My other black lab just jumps up and down and gets the other 2 crazy. I need help on how to stop this horrible behavior. It is giving myself and my husband anxiety.

My boyfriend's family has a 1 year old beagle that they've had since he was a puppy. The dog never went through obedience training at all, and there was an incident where a relative woke up the dog as he was sleeping and pressed the dog's nose into his own feces. Ever since then, there are moments when the dog sleeps and someone goes to pet him, the dog will snap/snarl and bite at the person. Now its getting to the point where even when the dog is awake and laying down, if certain people approach him, he will growl at them. The person will walk away from the dog as soon as that happens, but the dog runs after that person and bites at them. What should we do?
