well ruger is 10 weeks now. When my other dogs bark it seems to scare the heck out of him. He usually runs to me looking scared. He interacts well with the other dogs now. He got the message not to pester them when spike snapped at him last week. The running from the barking has always been there even before the spike incident. I am really having a hard time with potty training....somedays he has it and then its like he just decideds to pee.

Are you crate training properly? Sometimes I need to read up to makes sure I'm not rushing any steps.

Understanding Puppy

You need to be there to support and be his leader if he's not sure of himself (when the dogs bark). Just go see why they are barking to show him it's ok. Though with a young puppy, unless he's crated, he should always be in the room with a human to help with house rules and housebreaking.
