Can’t break dog of lazy elimination habit

Here`s another great article:

Doggo:

Rescued pup 5 years ago at age 1

was abused by previous owner

She is Husky/German Shepard

bad habit started randomly/no major event

well trained, had a trainer try to understand, wound up giving up after 3 months of 2x weekly sessions.

Problem:

Kyra my wonderful pup about a year ago developed a lazy habit. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to fix it. She stays inside with us for roughly 15-18hrs of the day. Wife and I are both retired so they get daily walks, come home, food and nap time.

A year ago she started to eliminate on the porch. Both urine and feces. At first we treated it as something was wrong where she has been going for the last 4 years. We reinforced her good habits of eliminating out in the yard. Which she does. If we tell her “go potty” she will go to the yard and eliminate.

The problem comes from her being lazy. We setup a camera to watch and see why she’s deciding to eliminate on the porch. It turns out, laziness. We cannot for the life of us solve it. She will lounge around, wake up stretch, look at the windows to see if we are watching then walk 4 feet, eliminate and then go back to sleep.

If we are home and happen to be watching she will indeed wake up, stretch look to see if we are home and can make eye contact with us. If she sees us, she turns to look, waits a second and then quickly goes off the porch to eliminate them back to sleep.

At first the trainer we had said it may be separation anxiety. We tried a few things: one was having the curtains open so she could always see us while she is in the back yard. She will still do it if she sees us but we don’t acknowledge her. The only time she will get up and walk to the grass (literally 6 feet away: her trained elimination spot is over 20 yds away) is if we make eye contact and she knows we are watching her.

What boggled our trainers mind and our mind is the mannerism behind it. If we let her out from the house, she will go the elimination area 20+yds from the deck. If she comes home from a walk, same place. After dinner, mid morning if we let them out, any other time than if she was laying down outside. The only time she deficates on the porch is when she wakes up looks to see if we are watching her and she makes the decision. Also to make sure we are all on the same page: she has free roam in and out of house with structure time frames for meals, walks and play. She has s routine nap time. She chooses to nap outside on her hammock. While we are home she has the ability to come in and out of the house as she pleases.

She does this daily, any time we are home or aren’t home. The video of her sleeping-> checking the window and then pooping knowing she’s not going to get caught red handed blows my mind. It’s like watching someone contemplating doing something bad. What blows my mind even more is the laziness of it. She thinks about it for at least a minute. During that minute of thinking; walking 10 feet she would be in grass, sand or gravel which ever she chooses to eliminate on. Instead she just stops, looks around, thinks about it, checks the window. Coast is clear? Right here on the deck.

Suggestions? Thank you, OpSmash

Attached puppy

/ by

sourced from: https://www.reddit.com/r/puppy101/comments/8rxvom/attached_puppy/

Here`s another great article:

I just got my 4 month old puppy last week, and the main issue that stands out is his attachment to me. I live with my boyfriend, and his sister (who is visiting for a month) and the dog seems to only follow/seek attention from me. This behavior goes as far as him growling at them or refusing to walk on the leash with them. If I go into the next room he will sit at the door and whine, then eventually wander off but still sulk until I come out… then he's a happy puppy again. Obviously I'm happy my puppy loves me, but I would like him to be more open to new people. This has been an issue outside of the apartment while on walks his initial reaction to people is ALERT and growl until they approach him then he is calm (no attempts to bite anyone).

It's gotten somewhat better in the last couple days, but I was wondering if anyone else had any tips on how to formally handle this?

Dog hates being alone in apartment, but is fine alone in the car (help please!)

Here`s another great article:

Sarah is my 7 year old greyhound who I adopted 6 months ago.

When I adopted her, I was still studying and only had to go to uni 1 and a half days a week, so I able to be with Sarah most of the time. I started full time work about a month ago and found out from neighbors that Sarah has been barking and whining all day every day. I always give her food in a food dispensing toy when I leave and we have a dog walker who comes every day and gives her a bone to occupy her for the rest of the day. There is area on the balcony which is set up for her to toilet herself if needed.

We do not think her barking/whining is time dependent because even when I leave her for a short amount a time, she starts to bark/whine whenever she hears other apartment doors open and close. We have recorded her throughout the day and found out that she doesn't settle because of this.

We were convinced she has separation anxiety but became very confused when we discovered that she is completely fine when we leave her in the car. We have left her in the car for up to 4-5 hours (with water and windows down) while we were close by and noticed that she was very happy to just sleep and chill out in the car.

Can anyone offer a an explanation or solution for this?

How can I train my dog to have a lower impact on the couple living with us? He starts yelping when anyone comes home and doesn’t stop until someone lets him out, and they are usually home before us. Need help on specific situations

/ by

sourced from: https://www.reddit.com/r/Dogtraining/comments/8rxdp2/how_can_i_train_my_dog_to_have_a_lower_impact_on/

Here`s another great article:

Here’s the situation in a nutshell. My brother and his wife live with my husband and I and we adopted Bandit, a 5 year old Russell terrier mix about a month ago. My husband works from home so the only time the dog is alone is when we go out for dinner or have plans. (Also have bible meetings every Wednesday night and Saturday afternoon that we all go to)

Some details about Bandit:

Bandit is house trained, house broken, and has even had obedience training. The only issue is being left alone. We walk him twice a day, minimum 20 min walks Bandit howls and barks when in a kennel He does NOT like the thunder shirt Does not like chew toys except the kong Usually just leave him in our room, isn’t destructive with furniture and only whines while in the room our room has a patio, 2nd floor, he can’t jump over, sometime we leave that open just in case he decides to go out there

The problem: – other couple typically gets home before us, especially with our Bible meetings twice a week so it happens a lot – they can’t sleep or do anything cause as soon as Bandit hears people, he starts yelping really loud SO they let him out – this has become a little bit of a burden on them and they seem a little resentful – Tonight we had plans with some friends, they left first, opened our door, let him into their room and he pooped on their rug

Bandit has NEVER pooped or peed in the house His typical food hadn’t come in the mail so we used other organic food from Petco so I figure that was the issue So now they are upset our dog pooped on their rug in their room, and the wife is saying I need to get potty pads so he will have a place to go (… Now correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t you supposed to train your dog to use potty pads?)

The whole thing was to make Bandit as low impact on them as possible. How can I get my dog to stay calm even after they or we come home? And should I consider potty pads when he is mainly in our room? Or should the patio suffice? Any help or tips would mean the world

Rough housing/playing with new puppy

Here`s another great article:

I’ve had my 12 week old schnoodle for a bit under a week now, and as she’s getting comfortable in the house she’s wanting to play. Our two goldendoodles(3 and 12 years) rough house with each other often and she seems to want in, but due to either her age or her being new they ignore her. I want to rough house with her myself, but when I yelp at a hard bite she doesn’t let go. Should I stop? Or is there some specific way I should do it? Thanks!

Training a puppy with adult dogs. Tips?

/ by

sourced from: https://www.reddit.com/r/Dogtraining/comments/8rwcre/training_a_puppy_with_adult_dogs_tips/

Here`s another great article:

Hello!

I have aquired a ~3 month old puppy from a friend of mine who underestimated the responsibility of a puppy.

He is a husky/boxer/pit mix and is picking up on things quite quickly. I have had him for three days and he knows sit, lay and comes when called. I also have two older dogs. They are 13 and 7. I know everyone says this but they are the best dogs. They are fantastically behaved and have great personalities and are taking to the puppy very well.

I have never had a puppy before as all my dogs have come to me as adults. Ideally I would like my older dogs help with training the puppy to behave as they do. Is this possible? Also, are there any tips that I should know about raising a puppy alongside other dogs?

My dog has killed 3 vacuums

/ by

sourced from: https://www.reddit.com/r/Dogtraining/comments/8rv1d5/my_dog_has_killed_3_vacuums/

Here`s another great article:

My dog (4 y/o Border Terrier) absolutely HATES the vacuum. My mom and I are on our fourth vacuum since he has “killed” our last 3 by biting holes in the tubing. When the vacuum is out and no one is using it, he’s seemingly on edge. When you touch and begin to move it, he will run up to it, stand at attention, and press his nose into it. When you turn it on, he barks uncontrollably and attacks the vacuum. And there’s no stopping him without physically forcing him away. I have tried to work with him on this. I’ll give him a treat when he’s by the vacuum. Try and make him sit and stay while I move the vacuum and reward with treats. But the only time he doesn’t attack the vacuum while I’m using it is after he has literally exhausted himself trying to do so. We have resorted to giving him a chew bone outside while we vacuum, but once we get to our back room where he can see/hear it (it has glass sliding doors to our back yard), he goes nuts. Naturally, this only seems to happen when my mom or I are present. If my mom has our housekeeper come over and we aren’t there, we will get a video of her using the brush hose attachment to vacuum HIM, and he’s calm as can be (I’ve tried this, it has not worked for me). So, we’ve tried acting as if we don’t know what’s going to happen when we vacuum. Doesn’t work. I don’t even know why he doesn’t like the vacuum this much. Other than him attacking it, nothing bad has happened between him and the vacuum. He’s been like this since we got him at 10 weeks. Yes, we could keep tossing him outside with a bone so we can vacuum, but it’s a pain if we just want to vacuum something small. Plus, we are getting a puppy in July and don’t really want her to pick up on this behavior. So, does anyone know how I can get my dog to accept that the vacuum is not going to kill him and to calm down?
