Brooke asks...This question is about:
Everytime I try to walk my pup the first thing she does when she gets out the door is jump and throw herself around trying to break free and it's a huge problem because as a great dane she is bigger than me and I live on a military installation which means if she does break free and doesn't come back immediately I could potentially lose her for good. She is fantastic on the actual walk and stays right next to me with only a few corrections as she's still learning but if she gets excited she starts acting up and I can't control her at all. I dont know how to correct her behavior and could use some advice on what to do.
Kaitlyn asks...This question is about:
My family rescued an English bulldog a couple months ago and he has been doing very well. He is friendly towards everybody. However, today I brought in a new puppy that we decided to add to our family. It is 8 weeks old, a miniature Australian shepherd, and male. When we tried to get the dogs to meet each other, immediate aggression was shown. Both dogs growled at each other and now we are afraid to even let the puppy around the English bulldog. How do you think I can successfully integrate this puppy into my family without the other dog being aggressive or quite possibly killing it?

My dog will go for walks with my dad and I but she won't go with only me or only my dad. She always needs 2 people. What would you suggest I do to train my dog to walk with just me or just my dad? Thank you so much I really appreciate your help!!!!

Hi, I just adopted a dog the issue is he binge eats. Let me clarify he doesn't do this as soon as the food goes down. We put his daily allowance of food down every morning. He eats a little then walks away. He eats a little around 1 and again walks away. Then he has to clear everything every night. I already have a 3 year old poodle - shit-zue mix who is used to just having food out. We don't have to monitor Henry's eating. If we put food down for both of them Rex will eat anything Henry hasn't earlier in the day at night. We have started putting only Rex allowed food in a bowl and Henry's in a ball since he likes to eat out of the ball occasionally anyway. However we put a little extra in the bowl because Henry will occasionally eat out of it during the day. I am not sure how to help Rex realize the food will always be there. We add the little extra typically an hour or two after Rex binges or earlier if Henry let's us know he's hungry. Still Rex will usually clear that out if Henry doesn't. How do I help Rex so we can free feed Henry again? Rex isn't food agressive. He let's us take the bowls away.
Lauren asks...This question is about:
My dog has always been fine when it comes to walking on a leash up until we got a second dog about 7 months ago. She is now very aggressive when we see other dogs in our neighborhood, she lunges, growls and barks. We try to correct this problem by sternly telling her no. We take her to the dog park and she is fine around other dogs, bigger dogs she tends to be more scared of while the small dogs she wants to play with. I'm not sure how to correct her on a leash and I don't know that I want to use a pinch collar just because she has been fine up until 7 months ago. rnPlease help! We live in a small neighborhood and a majority of the other people living there have dogs, people are becoming frightened of Dee. Our smaller dog will also join in sometimes, when Dee is not around though the smaller dog does nothing
