So, I crate trained my dog when she was a baby puppy and I had to work she would have to be in her crate for 5 hours and would soil but now she is big enough and is house trained she will let u know when she needs to potty she can be in her crate for 8 hours and be fine she is never in her crate longer and is barely in there regardless, she likes to pee out of spite if I have to shower and I just let her out and I'm not paying attention to her she will go pee in the house somewhere and chew up everything or if I put her in her crate and she doesn't want to be in there she will pee even if I just let her out and she will howl continuously rnrnShe gets a lot of exercise i take her to the dog park all the time and I'm always letting her out rnWhat do I do ??

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 Hyperactivity Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

I have a 1 year old shiba inu that has resource guarding issues. It is generally only when he has something that he is not supposed to have. He growls and will potentially attack whoever is trying to retrieve the item. It's gotten even worse. We also just recently got a new little female shiba inu who is about 10 weeks old now. And I can see that this isnt going to work with her being around his food and toys. So for the time being I have separated them. He will hurt her. He's 26 lbs and she's pushing 6 lbs. I am not sure he is trainable with this issue. He isn't a horrible dog but this is a huge deciding factor with us on rehoming him. I love him but I have started to really dislike him for his actions. I have 2 teenage boys at home and I dont want to risk anyone in the house being hurt. I cannot afford to spend $1000's on training. rnrnThank you,rnJennifer

Do (NORMAL) adult Dogs, Wolves, Coyotes, K-9s forget or lose the ability to suck? I'd tell you why but I don't think you'd believe me or maybe you will.

This question is about: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Separation Anxiety

Hello, ozzy has separation anxiety even when left with my parents whom I live with. He seems to trust and like then so I guess he just crus and lays by the door when I am gone. But that's not the really a huge problem. The problem is that he hates being in his crate. He is my first dog and I've made some mistakes like not properly kennel training him. Before he usually had someone to be with when I was gone and most of the time I could take him with me to places I go. Bit a change of schedule is coming and I need to kennel train him. The only problem is in the part when I have left him in the kennel he has broken out and the front of the kennel had drool all over and after breaking out he clawed up the carpet trying to get out of the room his kennel was I tried putting him I'm the kennel right in front of me so he could see me while I was watching tv. But he started panting really fast, drooling uncontrollably, and gets a glazed look on his eyes. On a side note, if he sees someone running he runs along side them and jumps up and puts his outs on there hands. He doesn't bite down but I've been telling him no and pushing him off when he does but I'm worried he will do it to a child one day and at least scare them and probably knock them down. He is getting better but still does it sometimes, any tips. Thank you.
