2 part question. We adopted Miles about a month ago, he was a rescue. He is overall a pretty good dog and seems to be adjusting well. However, he keeps pooping in the house. He has never peed in the house and alerts us when he needs to go, but never alerts when he has to poop. Looking for suggestions on this.rnSecond part - he has formed a severe bond with my husband, and whenever my 10 yr. old daughter (whom is the one who wanted the dog), goes near him if he is laying by my husband, he growls and nips at her! Looking for suggestions with that also please!

Adi just turned 2 October 23 and is a mini aussie. She is very, very aggressive towards people, men especially. She doesn't like when anyone comes in her territory (home) and has a very aggressive bark at anyone who comes in. I have had to lock her up many times because I fear that she may bite someone. When introducing her to people she doesn't like when people get close to me or move quickly towards me. rnShe gets a long okay with other dogs, but is sometimes aggressive towards them. I have a 7 month old standard aussie and they go back and forth sometimes over toys, but get along very well for the most part.rnWhy is she aggressive towards strangers and children? She doesn't give herself a chance to meet them or get close to them before she goes crazy. rnHow can I go about solving this besides socializing her more because i have tried that and she nipped at someones leg because they were by me.

Introducing my puppy to the crate. He whines alot in there. Should I just leave him in there while he whines? Is it natural?
Andrew asks...This question is about:
Zoe is on an eating schedule and has been for the past four months. A week and a half ago, she wouldnt eat until she had to, almost waiting an entire day. I got concerned one day and moved her bowl from the kitchen to her kennel and she ate without hesitation. Now, she seems to only want to eat in her kennel, walking away from her bowl when I fill it up in the original eating spot. I’ve tried to lure her back out of her kennel while she is eating, but she immediately ceases any interest in the food, until I put it back into her kennel. I’m completely lost.
Teresa asks...This question is about:
My pit bull is so aggressive towards children that we have had to put him in an electrical fence enclosure. We live right by the school and I'm so worried that he will attack a child. When my grandchildren come over her tries to get out of his cage to get to them. He growls, shows teeth and goes in this attack stance. I don't want to get rid of him but I will if this can't be controlled
