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

I adopted Marty about 4 months ago from a shelter. So far he has loved everyone, except one of my neighbors. He was fine with her, then one day we were in the back yard and she tried to lead him by his collar somewhere and he snapped at her. Ever since then if she tries to pet him he snarls and snaps at her. I've never seen him get aggressive toward anyone, he's usually very snuggly and friendly. I'm not sure what to do about it besides just not let her pet him, but we see her regularly and I don't want that to have to be the case. Any advice?

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc

My puppy has been a great puppy so far but lately he has started this habit of when I tell him no or stop (chewing, biting) he will start barking back and growling. This continues for a minute and my husband will tell him to stop and he does. I know he is still a puppy but it concerns me for when he gets bigger if this is an issue because soon he will be a lot bigger than he is now. I just am not sure what to do with him or how to change his behavior.

Hello,rnMy husband gets up before I do In the mornings and when he does he lets her out to use the restroom, but she will only pee. She waits for me to get up and let her out for her to go poop. She has been doing this for the last few months. It is only like that the morning. Any other time during the day she will pee or poop for him. I need advice on how to stop this habit.

Phoebe has gradually developed a habit of excessive barking. She seems to need to alert and/or protect us from pople walking/biking or sometimes driving past the house.
