I have a two year old Rhodesian Ridgeback that I've had since he was 6 weeks old. He's the 3rd dog of this breed I've had the pleasure of spending my life with.They have spent their entire life span with me the last one (Jake) living to the ripe old age of 13 yrs. The one I have now is 2 yrs old and he has developed a fear of people especially men. I've socialized him since he was a pup. He goes to the park and the vet etc... in the last 6 months he has developed a fear of men and won't get in the car unless he is coxed for awhile and even then sometimes he won't. I feel I'm calm assertive with him and he trusts me and responds to me.We have 5 other dogs ranging from a chihuahua to 2 pitbulls who live together with me my husband and my daughter they are all calm and get along great. Please if you can give me some info as to how I need to help my dog Danny I would be so grateful. I'm stumped with this one. Any info would be so helpful. I want him to be able to enjoy travel and outings with the rest of our pack. I'm a 52 yr old woman from Texas. Thanks for reading my post.

I have a new puppy and she likes to bite a lot. Her bites are dangerous though. I have children living in my home. She is about 13 weeks old. What really disturbs me is that I believe she may be a pitbull puppy. Can someone help me please.

How about some tips on integrating a new puppy to a household with an adult dog. My Aussie mix isn't taking to the puppy at all like I thought she would.

Our family has an 11 week old German Shepherd puppy. She is very agressive with our two children (ages 4 & 6yrs old). We brought her home when she was 7 1/2 weeks old from a local breeder. She also has fear agression (barking and growling) with strangers who come to our house but never when we take her to the neighbors house. She also has submissive urination with my husband only. He has been following your online advice about how to deal with it. Our vet actually recommended I take her to a behaviorist. I had a male GSD before that I raised as a puppy and trained but I didnt have children at the time and he never showed an ounce of agression! He was truly a "Gentle Giant." The kids can't be kids b/c she's constantly charging them and biting them even when they are playing amongst themselves. My son does like to play with her like she's a playmate and we have been removing him or her and teaching him what's inapropriate play. She will run after him and latch on to his jeans and growl at him and not let go! I'm worried I have a very agressive dog on my hands and I don't know how to correct some of these behaviors. My husband is against getting a trainer due to the cost. Is this something we can work on and fix as a family by reading and watching videos or do I truely need professional help!? I am a stay at home mom so i am with her all day and she does listen well for being so young. Please...we have actually talked about giving it another few weeks and if it doesn't improve, giving her up. It would break my heart b/c we truly want her to be part of our pack!! But i won't jeopardize the safety of my children. I know that sounds silly being that she is only 11 weeks old but I have never seen a puppy growl and bite people that young!! Please off some help!!!

Is it true that feeding a dog banana helps to stop them from eating feces?

Your right. The puppy finds security when she knows you are the leader not her. She does need to earn the treats, love and affection to enjoy them and to know what she has done to deserve them.

My son has a 9-week old chocolate lab. He is in the miltary and this past week since he was unsure whether he'd be able to get back to his apartment to let her out of her crate, he put her crate and a surround pen in the kitchen area with a couple of potty pads at the opposite end from the crate entry. He also hooked up a camera so he could observe her. She remained calm throughout the time, but after awakening, she promptly pees on the pad. Then she brings all her toys to the pad and lays down on the soiled pad. So upon returning home she smells like puppy pee and he has to give her a bath. Any idea why she is doing this?

I have a 9 wk old shitzu that suddenly is growling uncontrollably when my kids pick him up or when I try to take something out his mouth or clean his eyes. How can I get him to stop this?

I just got a new puppy Yorkshire Terrier she is wonderful and it appears she is being excepted into the pack by all animals and humans. One problem she is nipping and biting at both humans and dogs, the dogs just walk away. I think that is my fault as they are bigger dogs and I did not want them to hurt her so when they got rough I corrected them now she goes at them and they do nothing, so she has started on us. We do correct and redirect the behavior but she get going and has trouble stopping until a different member of the family comes and then she turns it right off. We need some tips. We have tried the back of the neck nip and loud noise. We walk her with the pack eat etc and she is doing great except for the nipping.
