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

Gator lives with my wife and I we have had him since he was a puppy. I have never had any issues with him being aggressive until I deployed for a year. Since I have come home when I have to take something from him whether it is something he knows he shouldn't have, a stuffed toy he has ripped open, or a dog bone. He runs and hides under a night stand he growls loudly at me and shows his teeth. After I am able to take what ever it is he has away he will very aggressively nip at my hands as I am pulling them away from him. How do I correct this behavior? I have a kennel I put him in after he does this but I'm not sure it's helping the situation.

My 11th month Blue Heeler when dogs approach him he freaks out and nips at them and screams when they sniff him

Jessa asks...

This question is about: Separation Anxiety

I've not been able to work for about 10 months now, so I've been home everyday with my 1.5 yr old male beagle. Well I'm finally able to get a job and now my dog can't be left alone. He can't even put put in a separate room when Im home without going crazy. He scratches the carpet, jumps at the door and chews at the door frame in attempt to get out. I've also tried to put him in a cage but he hates that even more and has bent and broken the metal bars. (I'm honestly scared to leave him alone because he could really end up hurting himself.) I'm going to miss a lot of job opportunities if I can't get him trained to be alone soon. I'm not sure what to do to make it easy as possible for both of us. I've set up a camera to watch him to make sure he's not hurting himself or breaking anything. Please help

This question is about: Toileting

I have had Missy since she was a puppy and she is trained to go outside to potty. We have a dog door, so she is never confined to the house. On a few occasions (when we have someone working in the backyard) we have had to shut the dog door. Within 15 minutes of closing the dog door, she has peed on the carpet - in front of us. How can I train her to "hold it"? I am concerned that she will never be able to be confined in the house without having an accident. I appreciate any guidance you can provide.

This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Toileting

My dog has been house trained with no accidents for over a year, we recently moved and she has started pottying in the house. the other dog doesnt have any problems but she seems to do it whether or not im home. she'll ring the bells to go out to play, but sneak upstairs or into a bedroom to go #1 or #2. i take them on a 30 min walk in the morning every day and play in the yard with them every night after work. i dont know what to do but it's ruining my new carpet and my roommate is NOT pleased. she is also frantically barking about 3-5 am every day for no apparent reason.
