This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

We rescued this dog we found on the street. He was malnourished and is unfixed but very friendly. At home we also have a female chihuahua who is unfixed and a Lhasa apso that is a fixed female. The chihuahua and Marley get along well. They play together all the time. Marley isn't so nice to my Lhasa apso. He constantly picks on her, he watches her all the time, he takes everything she tries to play with, he runs at her and rolls her hard and he bites at her often times hurting her though not badly. I'm concerned this will get worse as nothing we have done has made him stop. Now my Lhasa apso won't try to play, she pretty much will not leave my side. Will obedience help or will he always be like this to her?

This question is about: Toileting

I have owned dogs all my life and never run into this problem. Harley will not alert at all that he needs to go potty. He is crate trained. He never goes at night in his kennel. We take him out every 2-3 hours. He will go, make a beeline for the door to come in, then 5 min later eliminate on the floor. We tried bell training him but he just thought they were toys. We tried paper training him but same thing, he would just drag them all over the house. He's very smart and has been too obedience classes and done well. We just can't seem to get him potty trained.

This question is about: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

I feel like im doing nothing right with my dog. We got him from the shelter last year and its been one behavior problem after the other. He recently just started jumping up on people when they come up to pet him. I have him sit before anyone pets him but he still jumps, and im worried he is gonna hurt someone because he like to mouth when he jumps too. He has separation anxiety too, we had to leave him at the vet and he flipped out and the vet dianogsed him with separation anxiety. he pulls on the leash so much and he is a very strong boy. My last question is recall when have yet to get it down since he was 1 and half when he was brought to the shelter. his name wasn't duke before he came to the shelter so recall is really hard and he was ran away a couple of times.

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

I got my new puppy and the instant I brought him home he was growling when hands/my other dog went near his food. That stopped within two days with me putting my hands in giving more food showing him hands mean more food etc. My parents watch him twice a week and just got a german shepherd puppy (they also have 3 other dogs) and now he is VERY food aggressive but only to the german shepherd. We do not know what to 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

My fiancé and I have noticed that our dog is only aggressive towards other dogs when we are around. She has no aggression towards other dogs during her boarding at the vet where she goes out to the dog run with several other dogs. When we are there, however, she so very aggressive and must be muzzled. What would be the best way to go about preventing this?
