I am having a tough time training my dog to potty in one place. He is an inside dog and I have a training pad on the floor for him but he just doesn't want to use it and leaves his waste all over the house. What can I do to train him ?

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

This is about my granddaughters dog. She recently took in an 8 year old dog needing to find a new home. Previous owners said she was aggressive, especially around her food and sometimes with other dogs. rnZoey has bitten several people, including my granddaughter (drew blood) and has attacked the two other dogs in the home. When not aggressive she cuddles and loves petting.rnI'm afraid this dog is too aggressive to train but wanted to ask an expert if there was hope of stopping the aggression through training. Also, if it is possible, how long would the training take and what would cost be? Thank you for your answer.

My dog, won't stop nipping when you go to pet him, he will pee and poop outside and then within a hour he's peeded or popped again in the house. He doesn't listen to any commands I have tried everything and I don't know what else I can do. Everytime he comes out the crate first thing he does is pee. He pees and poops in his crate. He's even pooped in his own food bowl.

This question is about: Toileting

Hello- Merlin is 15. He has been house trained since he was a puppy. Over the past year we have begun to have problems with Merlin peeing on our couch. I am home all day with Merlin. I walk him multiple times a day and let him outback multiple times a day. He spends most of the day sleeping so often I wake him to walk or go outside. However, if we walk him, and then leave as a family to go somewhere, he immediately goes over to our couch and pee's on it. For example we walked him yesterday, and then we left for lunch. we were gone for 30 minutes. When we returned he had peed on the couch. We have installed a doggie door (which he knows how to use), use a dog walker if we are gone for longer periods of time... yet the behavior continues. He is destroying my furniture, and I'm at my wits end on what is causing this and how to correct it. Thank you for your help.
