Q&A on Puppy Training
Our 11 month old embarrasses me by humping me or even family members. How do we deal with this?
My 11 month old dog gets what we call the zoomies. He tucks his butt and runs around like he's nuts. Why does he do this and what should I do about it?
My pup eats everything... toys, socks, underwear. We try to keep things picked up but he still finds them. What can we do?
Our 8 week old puppy is a voracious eater and is growling and guarding his food. Should we correct him for this?
My fiance and I just adopted a 3 month old pup. We live in a small condo and he's barking non stop and peeing in the apartment, soiling his crate. Can we leave him outside all day? My fiance wants to return him, what should we do?
My 4 month old puppy submissively urinates whenever he gets excited. I thought with training & confidence this would go away, should I give him treats every time he doesn’t pee?
I’m getting a new puppy and I have a question about teaching the puppy that I own his food. Should I be able to take away food at anytime?
My 8 month old GSD has suddenly become destructive! Is this normal?
I have a couple of questions in reference to using a clicker and having a set schedule and outline for training my pup.
I already own the video Raising Your Puppy with Michael Ellis and I’m interested in the 5 day Puppy Development workshop. Can I audit this course before buying to make sure I am not paying for content I already have?

I took my puppy to a group class and I had a hard time getting her attention. At what point should I practice obedience in a group setting?
My 15 week old puppy has developed a chewy grip on the jute puppy sleeve. At 10 weeks old he would grip very well. How can I resolve this?
I’m getting a Malinois puppy soon, what do you recommend for socialization with other dogs?
I watched a video of your puppy getting his nails done, my puppy won’t sit still. How do I start?
Should I let my dog interact more with the neighbors because of the contact they will have, especially the person who may look after him from time to time if something happens or he needs to be looked after for a night if I am traveling?
Any suggestions to curb/minimize barking behavior other than ignoring the behavior?
I am a graveyard electrician and I do most of the training and exercising with our puppy. The pup wakes at 2-3am when I get home and is instantly in full "drive" and the results of training her at this time have been phenomenal. But I do not know how healthy this is for her physically and mentally. Any suggestions?
Is it a bad idea to give my puppy beef bones with baby teeth?
My dog barks obsessively in his crate when I take my other dog out. Any suggestions on what I can do?
