I need help! rnrnMy puppy is at risk of being given away. rnMy 1 year old staffy just keeps getting worse! She got really good at about 12 months but in the past 3 months she won’t stop barking and just not listening. She’ll do something wrong so I tell her off and the just goes back and does it. She doesn’t listen at all. She cries and cries. She bites when she’s excited which she did when she was a puppy and now it’s started again. She jumps she is just not a nice dog to be around. She doesn’t do as she’s told she just ignores everything that is said to her even tho a few months ago she was listening really well coming when she was called and not biting but now it’s all turned around and gotten worse than it’s ever been! Someone please help my dad is on his last straw. rnI have to have her on a lead while at other people houses because she just runs a muck chews up everything. She had at least 30 toys and two other dogs there that she plays with so I know it’s not Bordem. She was so good and now she’s turned. She goes into almost like a trans where she just does not listen. I don’t know what’s gotten into her. rnI got her when she was 10 months old and the previous owner had done 0 training. I’ve trained her to do basic things like sit and lay down and to come to her name and she still sits and lays down but doesn’t come to her name.

Alicia asks...

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

Charlie has had some aggression issues with other dogs down at the park so I have stopped taking him down and have been introducing him to dogs 1 on 1 which seemed to be improving slightly, however yesterday I got him and his sister (same litter) a bone each which I didn't think would be an issue as they generally chew on the same pigs ear, treats ect with no problem but when I went around the corner he ran up to her growling and pinned her down and she cried as soon as I yelled at him to stop he stopped, I tried again today with me around the whole time and he did the same thing. Is this likely to progress into aggression at other times with bones not around? And is there much I can do to stop this behaviour?

This question is about: Other

I'm at a complete loss with my one year old sprocker. He has developed an obsession with lights and shadows and now does it every second he is awake. He never settles and ignores us when we try to snap him out of it. He wags his tail so clearly enjoys his light chasing but we feel like we've lost him.
