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

My Husky has recently started displaying very agressive behavior towards a dog in our household, a 6 month old pit bull puppy. For 3-4 this behavior has escalated from mild to highly agressive and possibly dangerous for the puppy and my family during the attacks. Let me just say that our husky doesn't show agressive behavior towards ANY other dog except this pit bull puppy (we also have a German Shepard 4mths in our household) and our Husky has been introduced to other dogs various times. No aggression. As soon as the puppy approaches him(he's a very high strung, rowdy dog, jumps on our husky- and pretty much annoys him- the pit is not ours, and this behavior is causing a BIG conflict in our household) there is a full out attack from our husky onto the pit bull( pinning him down from the back of the throat, attacking his face, towering over him, charging, growling.) The pit submits to him, shows no interest in being dominant over our husky, he just continues to jump and annoy our husky. Our husky also bit my husband during one of the attacks, I'm afraid it's going to get much worse and result in the death of the pit bull or harming myself or my husband trying to break up the attack. I don't know what to do to control the behavior anymore.

This question is about: Puppy Management Toileting

My puppy is toileting in her crate on a regular basis, despite taking her out to potty frequently. Sometimes she will toilet outside, then when I bring her inside, less than 5 minutes later, she has pooped in the crate. I have tried puppy pads, but she won't use them, and I have tried the umbilical cord method with great success...except when she regresses to soiling the crate again. I am at the end of my rope with waking up to the smell of stinky nastiness, incessant bathing, and seemingly pointless 30-minute trips outside. Also, I have tried training basic commands, but she has no interest in training whatsoever and either ignores or forgets everything within 30 seconds. I am a pack leader, but this dog is beyond anything I have yet experienced. Please help!!!!!!!!!!

This question is about: Pulling on the Lead

My Baby can pull a car I think, As soon As I put his leash on him he pulls- including me out the door down the steps and any where. I have watched many Training videos- I was wondering about the Prong collar. Could this be used just til he learns not to pull or do I always have to use- I do not want my baby mistreated in any way. He is very good at come-sit - stay he just gets so excited and pulls - Thanks so much for any help
