Puppy Behavior Basics
Puppies are usually weaned at six to seven weeks, but are still learning important skills. 

Basic Dog Training Tips
Does your dog get on the furniture and refuse to get off? Refuse to come when called? Defend his food bowl or toys from you? 

House Training
Contrary to popular belief, housetraining a puppy requires far more than a few stacks of old newspapers. 

Crate Training
Using a crate to properly train your dog will be time well spent. 

Barking Problems
Excessive barking can result in neighborhood disputes and violations of animal control ordinances. 

Escaping Dogs
If your dog is running loose, he’s in danger of being hit by a car, injured in a fight, or hurt in any number of other ways. 

Positive Reinforcement
Positive reinforcement is one of your most powerful tools for shaping or changing your pet’s behavior. 

Puppy Chewing
Chewing is normal puppy behavior, but it can still create problems for you. 

Separation Anxiety
Dogs with separation anxiety exhibit behavior problems when they’re left alone. 

Stop Your Dog From Digging
Your dog may dig to seek entertainment, attention, comfort, escape, prey, or protection. 

Urine Marking
Urine-marking is not a house soiling problem. Instead, it is considered territorial behavior. 

Aggressive Behavior
Dog aggression includes any behavior meant to intimidate or harm a person or another animal. 

Fear of Noise
When your dog becomes frightened, she tries to reduce her fear through destruction and escaping.
