My dog is super calm and sweet when wearing a sweater, but as soon as we take it off he becomes a little hellion. We tried waiting it out but he goes for hours on end so we eventually give in and put the sweater back on and he becomes loving and calm again. Any ways to break this or reasons why he does this?

Bentley has broke out of 5 different cages. We only put him in the cage when we sleep and when we leave the apartment. We have a black lab that's 6 months and they are in separate cages. We took them for a walk and let them play in the dog park yesterday. Today we left to get food and he broke out of his cage and destroyed our room. I was thinking he might have separation anxiety..please help!

I just got a 4 y/o rescue and I'm having trouble getting him to go outside to poop. I have a doggie door and a fenced yard and I've already taught him to use the door to go out but then he comes in and poops. He was crate trained but neglected and left in a crate to long so he poops in his crate also. my goal was to train him to go outside so I wouldn't have to crate him. I have another dog that is free in the house. I want them both to be free.

I recently got a German Shepard puppy named Athena who is 8 months old. My older dog Mocha was fine with her when they first met and they even ran around playing in the yard. Over the next couple days Mocha slowly started becomming mean to Athena. She’ll show her teeth whenever the puppy walks by and even snaps at her every once in awhile. But other times they’ll lay down on the ground cuddled up with each other. It’s the weirdest thing. I was wondering how to correct the growling and snapping at the puppy. Thank you for your time!
