Crate Training for Your Dog or Puppy

Teaching your dog to happily spend time in a crate can get you some long-term benefits. A crate can be a part of house-training, chew-training, safe traveling, and medical recovery, to mention just a few. If you invest time in crate training at the beginning, your dog can end up with a safe, quiet, comfortable place to spend time when they need to be confined, or when they just want somewhere secure to hang out.

How to Get Your Dog to Behave

Many times, the key to getting your dog to do what you want -- or stop doing what you don't want -- comes down to using the right technique. A basic knowledge of how behavior modification works can take you a long way in dealing with your dog.

Play Biting in Puppies - Is my Puppy Aggressive?

Almost all normal puppies play bite. They do it to other puppies, to adult dogs who'll let them and to their owners. It's important to distinguish this constant biting from bona fide aggression, where a dog threatens and/or bites when being possessive of toys or food, or when uncomfortable about someone touching them or coming too close. Aggression is less common in young puppies than in adult dogs but is not unheard of. If you think your puppy is showing signs of aggression, get yourself into competent professional hands. Many kinds of aggression can be resolved.
