This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks

Hatch is becoming more aggressive under certain circumstances. He has it in for the mail lady who comes to our office. I try and keep him completely confined in my office with the door closed but if he hears her truck, he gets agitated and if he is out for some reason when she is here, he will charge her. She is scared of dogs which makes it worse as he picks up on this. rnrnI can't have him doing this in the office, obviously. Is there a training technique that I can use that would involve me and Hatch waiting for the mail lady and then when she comes in, I do something with Hatch to teach him not to charge her or anyone else?

This question is about: Toileting

I got a dog from a rescue in October. I have been unable to house break him. I cannot get him to hold his urine for more that 3 hours. The vet has confirmed there is nothing wrong with him medically. I have tried crate training him but he pees in his crate. I have spent $600 on dog trainers and am desperate. He will not go when I keep him on a leash by my side which is what I do when I am home but I am at a loss as to what to do at night or when I need to leave the house for work. rnrnFor a month i tried leaving him in the bathroom with a plastic doggie lawn (he shreds and destroys puppy pads after peeing on them) along with mid day dog walks. After I got sick of waking up to a horrid urine smell every morning and after work I got an expensive dog traine who had me trying crate training. I can't get him to stop peeing in te crate. Please help me.

This question is about: Toileting

We have three dogs, all rescue dogs. The most recent addition is Ellie. She was our neighbors dog and when they had a baby she started wanting to play at our house with our dogs and two kids. For about 6 months she had her own access to our house and yard. Soon she just never went home. Our neighbors moved and left her with us . She is great except that recently she has started "marking" in our boys room. She is kenneled at night and we have a doggie door to the yard. We are finding that even when she gets out of the kennel and then goes out to pee she comes back in and goes to my kids room and pees. We are trying to keep their door closed but not perfect about that. Peeing in our house is not acceptable and my husband is ready to get rid of her. I am not. We always clean the pee up immediately with naturals miracle urine formula. At a loss, can you help ??
