Oliver shows some food aggression and also jumps and nips at people. I got him from the pound and I don't know how to get him to stop biting, barking too much and jumping on people. It's become a problem for my roommates and I and I don't wanna get rid of him.
Madison asks...This question is about:
I adopted my dog almost a month ago from a shelter. She was already basically potty trained when I got her, but I keep her on a schedule. She sometimes pees and poops in the house when I am gone. I have noticed that she also howls when I am going to. I tell her no and show her the pee or poop, but she continues to do it maybe 2 times a week. She also freaks out when I get home and whines and howls and jumps all over me. She is 2 and I wanted to know if it will stop soon or I need to call in extra help?
Bald asks...This question is about:
My wife's dog just moved in with us. He has been living outdoors and needs to be potty-trained. We bring him to the balcony to pee where he's voluntarily peed before. However, he doesn't seem to pee there now. After waiting for a while, I decided to urinate a little on that spot just to see what he would do. Immediately after seeing me urinate, he would go there and urinate as well. Afterwards, he would have this guilty look on his face and be reluctant or refuse to eat treats. I've tried this method one other time, with the same results. I guess he's afraid of sharing territories with me? This morning, we decided to feed him treats when he gets to the balcony so he can at least get in the routine of going there every morning. He takes the treat and buries it under his towels. When my wife took it out, he hid it in a corner. I guess that means he likes the treats a lot? We're not sure what to do now.

I’ve use attractants, placing her poop on it, placing dirt from outside on it, spraying the attractant in the yard where she goes etc please please help !
Christina asks...This question is about:
My dog, Tj is 11 years old. He's a Pomeranian-Popillan Mix, and he tries to bite people, and barks at anyone he sees. He's bit all of us, and I can not stand to get rid of him. He mostly bites at my dad. He was a Hurricane Harvey rescue, and we have no idea about his past. He also bites our cats. Do you have any tips. also, if he is not in the same room as someone, he freaks out. Please help. Another thing is he pees in the house, a lot.
