    Hi, I’m a new member here and I have a serious problem and I need urgent advice. I have a 7 year old non-spayed female German Shepherd who I’ve raised since she was 7 weeks old and has killed 2 small dogs.

    Hi all! I have a question about hackles being raised during perceived play. Here's the situation: I have a rescue and she enjoys playing with other dogs. She will have her hackles raised when meeting a new dog but generally that will go down pretty fast. Today, I was having a doggy play date...
  5. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    He is now 17 months old. About once a week he goes to doggy day care. There have been no problems until recently. He is very high energy but not aggressive. However, this last time he was causing issues. The lady who runs the facility told me it might be because there was a female in heat...

    Hello! My wife and I own a 7 year old GSD, named Kona. She has always been a wonderful dog and has given us zero problems throughout her lifetime (other than the crazy puppy days). She loves to sit outside all day and run around in the yard and chase birds. She never leaves the property, and...
  9. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    I walk my neighbor’s 20-month old male, Capo. To put it bluntly, my neighbors are not responsible dog owners. Capo spends all day, every day in their concrete yard unless I am walking him; he was not socialized at all when he was younger, is mostly untrained and unneutered. I have been trying to...

    Our 5 month old German shepherd won’t stop barking at and chasing our smallest cat. We have two cats, one is very big and bossy, but very calm. Our little one is teeny and jitterish. Annie (our GSD) will not stop tormenting her! She isn’t TOO bothered about the older cat (will bark a little and...

  15. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    So, my dog is a non-neutered male, 10 months old. I've had him since he was 6 months, as a rescue. He's a really sweet dog and no aggression so far. I mean, he was mouthy as a puppy and I needed to firmly tell him "no!" a lot when he was younger, but he hasn't been mouthing me for over a month...

  17. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    My two year old is my first working line shepherd and the first to show aggression. She has nipped two people and tried to bite a third. The first I excused because a man unknown to her (but known to me) entered the house when I was in the other room. She tore his pants and bruised him but...

  19. General Behavior
    Hello, BACKGROUND: I posted about cat socialization while back when I first got my GSD mix, Albie, who is now going on 8 months old. So far, the process has gone well. Generally, he one-sidedly likes/admires the cats and they get annoyed at him. He mostly ignores them, is sometimes curious and...
