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 Pulling on the Lead Other

We adopted Duke when he was 12 weeks old . He came from a home with a lot of dogs and even had a scratch on his snout when we brought h home. Which tells me the others were aggressive with him. He was fine with other dogs at first but had always been unsure around them. Now he barks aggressively everytime we see other dogs , whether it be out waking or just through our home fence. Socialization has been a struggle with him but what do you suggest . I don't want to give up. He is great with humans and loves to be around people

This question is about: Pulling on the Lead Other

Jake is easygoing, and generally well behaved at home. He weighs 97lbs, and pulls while walking. I weigh 110lbs. Now I'm using a front lead leash works fairly well. The biggest problem is; if other people ESPECIALLY if they have a dog. He bolts, dragging me with him, & he gets away leash & all. Doesn't hurt anyone, except I have fallen & been hurt a few times. I NEED HELP ASAP. I called you yesterday, so far no response, please call soon as you can, so I can set something up, also need to cost so I can set that up. Thankyou also Jake is 5yrs old I've had him since he was 8wks old.

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

Luna came from a home rescue where she had been since she was 8 weeks old. I got her at two. The woman had upwards of 10-12 dogs and they were crated when she worked and had social time outside and in the house. Luna was not house broken. She lived with all big dogs...boxers, labs and bullys. My roommates have two yellow labs, a brother and sister about the same age. The male is alpha but very chill. The female is smart and sets the agenda. rnLuna's entrance was seamless and she submitted nand loved being with them. The labs adjusted well too. Luna played on local beaches with other dogs and played with the dog next door with no problem.rnAbout a year into her time here the female lab led a charge on the golden retriever pup who was quite submissive. Luna got pretty aggressive but did not hurt him. The female lab backs off and runs home. Since that time Luna has been all about running after any dog that goes by the house. She's is more aggressive if the female lab leads the charge. I now have Luna fenced and leashed all the time as we live rurally and I don't want her to hurt anyone's dog. I work with her outside the pack and she's much better but too excited about other dogs....whines and pulls to see them. I honestly am apprehensive with her now which I know is not a good read for her. She is a great loving dog in her pack and with all of us.rnShe is also afraid of men but likes their hand, barks and wags her tail. No biting, snarling or shackles. If they ignore her then she adapts quickly.rnOk, that's my saga. Thanks for entertaining my questions

This question is about: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household Other

I have had her since she was a puppy. And she has always slept at the foot of my bed. A few weeks ago I came back from a trip and she no longer made even hints of wanting to jump up. She has instead taken to sleeping beside it with my other older rescue dog (which I have had for 4 years, though has started humping her which also seem to come from no where) at first I thought she might be getting a little old and it might hurt to jump up but she seems fine with jumping onto other things. I have some medical issues that have been helped by her sleeping on my feet so this is a bit more than just preference for me. Any insight would be great.
