Hi, rnI have an 8 week old Rhodesian Ridgeback. I have taken him to meet other dogs at my house. And he has starting growling and snapping at them. I just got him today could he be acting like this cause he has had a long day? He has flown from Texas to North Carolina. And he also seems extremely attached to me in the short time I’ve had him. I want to stop this behaviour in an effect way.

I have just gotten him from a neighbor whom Benny kept escaping from his chain and coming to our house which he must prefer because he stays here without being chained or caged at this time. The question is, how do I keep him from removing my pillows from my patio furniture? I know they are energetic dogs and he has toys and I try to play with him some every day. He is very smart and I plan on going through behavioral training with him.

He just tried to bite me and anyone else who gets near him. We have tried multiple things to try to stop the biting and nothing is working. He has chew toys but Everytime I try to get him he tries to bite. He will not calm down.

Gigi potty trained young. she barks at anyone who enters my home. She has so much energy. She has started to nip while putting her harness on and starting biting the leash again. She does well when put in doggy play, however the barking at dogs and people near my home is non stop. She also jumps up and pulls on clothes to play. She is lovable and is with babies since we got her. She is great with them. I want her to listen when given a command. Any suggestions?

I have a 1 yr old male husky, when he was a puppy he always wanted to nip and bite. He puts his whole mouth around your hand, legs, etc. I bought bones and toys for him to play with to redirect it to that but that did not work and he still continues this behavior. rnrnWe have him crate trained so he knows thats where he sleeps but every morning he howls for hours until we take him out even when he already peed and pooped. He complains every time he is in there even during the day until someone lets him out. rnrnNow my husky jumps on everyone living in the house and body slams the patio door if he wants to go inside (which he is not allowed to). He still puts his mouth around our hands if we want to pet him. We have a big backyard where he runs around and releases his energy. We also take him for walks. rnrnIts shedding season for huskies and I was brushing him and he started to bite me. He bite me multiple times really hard, there's bumps on my skin. He also growled when I want to brush him. I knew I wasn't hurting him because his hair would just fall out like nothing. I'm very stressed about his behavior. How can I stop him from biting again in the future? I do not want this to be a bigger problem.
