My girlfriend has two dogs both golden retrievers. Lucy is a very submissive dog that gets along with any animal I've seen so far. Lucy just moved in with these two Goldens and gets along with them fine for the most part. However whenever Bailey (one of the golden retrievers) get close to my girlfriend lucy gets very protective or jealous and get very aggressive with Bailey. To the point where they get into really big fights. Is there a way to correct this behavior? Simply separating them with not work.

Rocky has started to attack my daughters two yorkies for no reason. We currently have four dogs in the house including Rocky. Two belong to my daughter and two belong to us. These attacks have nothing to do with feeding time.

I have a dog that is almost a year old now. He still cowers and pees when I get near him. Not my wife or kids. I have read a lot of information on it and am doing my best to follow all the steps, but the biggest problem I have is taking him outside to relieve himself. I'm not supposed to put my hand over him or stand over him so how am I supposed to get his leash on? Every time it turns into a pee or poop accident. I cant just let him out on his own he is really timid and runs at load noises. Any advice would help. The Vet here at petsmart said maybe a shock color, but he's like 3lbs and my lil baby so that's not an option. Thank you for your time.

Hi, I've had my dog since he was a month old when I adopted him from a pound in TX. He has since accompanied my husband and I on 2 military moves and also a move to my parents' house in MN when my husband was deployed. Since he was over a year he would snarl if he felt like he was going to be punished. We used to give him a little spank on the butt when he was bad and I think that it may have started the snarling or at least didn't help it. While in MN my dog had to deal with a dog that I would consider aggressive (especially around food) and he got in a tussle with her on two different occasions. Since my husband came back from his deployment we had a baby and moved to WI. Now Franklin is very anxious, "cobbing" on anything, showing a general dislike of nearly everyone that is not my husband, me, or my parents. He also seems scared of my husband, leery of the baby, and terrified of my father-in-law. He has never hurt our baby, he just grumbles when she tries to pet him. He prefers to try to give her kisses. Recently, my husband tried to get my dog's bed away from him and Franklin bit him. I don't know what to do. My husband keeps talking about how he's going to get rid of Franklin but I still think there's hope for him.
