    Brisket does not like leashes!

    Brisket is only 8 weeks old, and though we have a fenced in backyard, I thought it would be a good idea to start trying to leash train him. I have experience doing this with other breeds, but Brisket was not having it. He got so aggressive towards the leash and began biting it and trying to rip...

    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).

    half his age...

    We found this photo from when Castor was 3.5 - soon he will turn 7. He might look a bit older these days but he still hops up on to the fountain ledge each morning to get a better view of the park. Since this photo was taken he has also managed to train me to give him a treat for hopping up there.

    I have recently adopted a five year old male Bulldog who is delightful. However, he will not allow me to touch his face and, in particular, clean his folds. If I approach him with a cloth, his jowl quivers. As soon as I touch his face slightly, he tries to bite me. He was surrendered by a person...

    Joey's upcoming training sessions-INPUT PLEASE

    Hello friends! A quick recap, Joey and I have been staying at one of my sister's homes since Monday.

    General Question Crate size

    I know that they say to make sure the crate isnt too big. I'm looking for one with the divider so that it can grow with her. What size should I get? Shes currently sleeping in a baby play yard type thing but we want to crate train her. I'm sure the play yard wont hold her as she gets bigger.
