    My puppy is 11 weeks old now and she is really mouthy. This is my first dog and I have done a lot of research, but it's always different when you actually have one! I don't think she is teething, and I know that they are naturally mouthy sometimes, but I'm getting really nervous for when she...

    We have a 10 month old doberman puppy. He's really very well behaved most of the time.. but for some reason, when it comes to his biting we're having a really hard time. He doesn't chew anything he isn't supposed to. He doesn't bite any other people other than me and my boyfriend. He's even...

    I was walking Marco along the sidewalk here in Manhattan this afternoon coming back from a couple hours of exercising in the park; he was in a close heel position with me holding his leash loose but short, as I always do when there are people we are about to pass. We walked behind a group of...

We have had her since she was 9 weeks old, and while she has been a joy, she also has some behavior issues that we have yet to get a hold of. The number one issue we have with her is the play biting. We...

    Please help. We adopted a BEAUTIFUL Blue Dobe a little over a week ago. She is 9 weeks old as of yesterday. When we first brought her home she was sooooo sweet and docile and slept a lot. I have heard that they get "depressed" when they leave their litter so maybe that was the case cause she has...

    Hi I recently just got my first Doberman and she will be 3 months in a week. I have had many puppies in my life but I have never had one that play bites so much. I don't know if it's a Doberman thing or just her being a little wild. Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop this. I've tried...

    We just adopted a 5 month old Dobie. We have had him for 4 days. He is great with us, listens, especially when we lay down rules. We don't know much about his last home, so we're starting relatively with no info. While we're trying to introduce him to our smaller dog, they play well until he...

    I saved a Doberman from a no kill shelter a few years ago. I was going to choose a different dog, but the lady who worked there said she saved him from being put down at the Humane Society and begged me to take him. She said he had been a bait dog, then a fight dog....poor guys was covered in...

    My wife and I are encountering aggressive puppy-biting from our 12 week, 24 lb pup Loxy. When she is tired she is a sweet heart, but when she is awake, she is turning into a demon, especially when she is overtired, and especially when she is alone with my wife....who has had it. We do the...

    Howdy: 4 month old Ava is doing very well in general with her training. She's still pretty nippy, but the bite force has diminished. Sit, down, off, come,etc, is coming along nicely. However, she has developed a recent habit of charging me and biting my pant legs ( sometimes right through the...
