my dog has recently been behaving territorialy on the family couch yet only becomes aggitated when my 11 year old son is on the couch. Otherwise the two get along fine. My son feeds him, walks him and the dog will hang out in his bedroom with no issues at all however when they are both on the couch the dog will first stare at him and then lunge and bark at my son regardless of whether eye contact is made or not. Can you please offer any advise on this matter?

This question is about: Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household Separation Anxiety

We got a second dog recently. We were hopeful that our Sadie would be happy with this little one, Rosie (female). She seems to be getting more depressed, though. We are careful to give her special attention, though.rnAny suggestions?rnThanks,rnHolly Galgano

My boxer Petey has some aggressions issues, food, bone, some toys and has showed a little aggression towards our other dogs. We got hiNeutered 3 weeks ago and he has not shown any problems since, but I just put him in a 2 week board and train program and he shows some aggression towards dogs he doesn't know my concern is hims being away for 2 weeks. Will he remember the dogs here or will we have to re-introduce them and have him possibly attack them? They all just got used to each other. He is in training because he has some confidence issues and cowers in uncomfortable situations. I don't know if they training will. Help his aggression issues towards other dogs. I don't want him to stay there if he won't remember his pack at home. Thank you.

We adopted our dog as a puppy. He is housebroken but continues to chew some things. However, our bigger issue is that he barks a lot and does not listen to the command "come". It is impossible to catch him so we have a very difficult time getting him inside if he is barking too much. He doesn't care about food. Any suggestions?

hi, my mothers dog Luci is starting to be very aggressive to my sisters dog pepper and to some other dogs , do you know why she could be acting this way? Her and Pepper have been fine and friendly all the time , one night I brought Pepper over to our house and she attacked her . I thought it was because I was a bit excited and she fed off of it and that she was being dominant , but then she did it again today at the dog park ( a very neutral area) and it made no sense. Luci has always been dominant but lately its been getting worse, more aggressive . We took her to the dog park yesterday and everything was fine (over 10 dogs there) , no signs of aggression or dominance . can you help us and explain why she has been doing this please and thank you
