We got Max when he was about 8-10 was, did great with potty training, ect. I admit we weren't formally training him as we should have. He was biting well playfully chewing "us" way too much. Of course we've provided plenty of bones, toys to him. The we thought we'll get him a playmate so he has company, so we decided to another puppy. This one is younger, about 9-10 weeks, smaller, very calm, while Max is really full of energy. But all Max does is go to chew on him and what seems to be playing has turned into him hurting the other puppy. I've tried treat rewarding, which he's become extremely possessive and aggressive over food and bones. I literally cannot leave them together at all without constantly intervening or putting Max on a leash in the house to control what he does. I know we should have better established who is the pack leader BEFORE we got another puppy, we just thought they could learn together. Max even bit my 9 year old sons face a couple days ago when my husband took away his bone, he just bit my sons face. Is this behavior fixable or do I need to get rid of one of the dogs?

Hello !rnI am kind of desperate regarding my puppy's biting.rnHe's a 3 months old husky who bites aggressively.rnI have tried all kinds of methods that i've seen on youtube. Methods like yelping and walking away from him after he bites me or redirecting him to biting a toy and rewarding the good behavior. I don't think that after his teeth will grow he'll stop mouthing and heavily biting.

How can I reverse my dogs aggression towards strangers

This question is about: Puppy Management

Hi, I've been potty training my dog for 8 weeks now and it's not working. I showed him the bell and whenever I take him out to go potty, I point at the bell and make him ring it before we go out. It works, but he doesn't know that when HE needs to go out, HE has to ring it without me telling him. He has recently pooped in the house, and my roommates are getting very angry since this is not his first accident. They are threatening to get rid of him if he does it one more time. People say not to scold him when you catch him or when you find the accident, but that didn't work. Mars just peed and pooed more inside. Others said to punish him, so I would point at the accident and give him a scolding. He goes potty where nobody can see when he's in the house, so all the advice I have gotten does not work. I feel like I need to restart bell training, but it has been 2 months and I'm worried it will confuse him, and I don't want him to go to a different home. Please help.
