    12 week old playing tug of war with son's shorts and leash

    Thanks. I have been paying more attention to the times in which she is doing it. It seems to be right after she eats in the AM and in the afternoon. Right after she gets fiesty, she goes to sleep. I am wondering if it is her way of saying she is tired :)

    12 week old playing tug of war with son's shorts and leash

    I have a 12 week old that is jumping up on my 26 yo son and biting and growling on his shorts--almost like tug of war. She does the same exact thing with when I leash train. I started yesterday with placing a treat on her nose and giving the command "release" and if she doesn't release I say...

    Barking in crate

    I have a 9 week old EB I got last Saturday. My son and I have been crating her periodically throughout the day (split an hour or two in and an hour or two out etc). She doesn't give me much of a fight at night but during the day is a living Hell. She will bark and bark and bark for 30 minutes...
