Do you think marker training can be used to rehabilitate fearful feral dogs?
We rescued a 5 year old dog and for the first couple of weeks he was great. He is now growling at my youngest child and it's getting worse.

We adopted a 2 year old poodle a couple weeks ago. She’s been growling and has bitten our 6 year old daughter. Can this be dealt with through training?
We have a rescue dog that becomes very anxious & fearful when we are going to put her in a crate, do you have any suggestions?

My rescue dog won't go down the stairs to my basement and I want to take him down there where it's cool so we can play. I don't want to force him, can you help me?
What DVDs would you suggest for the husky that we just brought into our home?
Do you have a video on training for the invisible fence? Or best video I should use to help train my dog to stay in the yard?
We were recently contacted about a pair of 8 week old wolf pups. Now after getting the pups home they are so horrified that they won't come out of the corner. Any suggestions?
I adopted a white GSD mix. Comments from others have made us suspect that he may be a low content hybrid. Should I be overly cautious?
