Hey there...I haven't been here for a while. I have a puppy named Misfit. We thought she was a Border Collie and Lab mix (Thats what the people who we got her from said she was) but now we don't think she is part lab. We are pretty sure she is border collie and pit bull.
She seems to be having some behavoir problems. Well lets see...she is smart but it's taking her awhile to get the potty training down. She pees when she goes outside but it's as if she can't hold it in yet. She is good with other dogs MOST of the time. We her to the dog park sometimes and we have two other dogs. But for some reason she dislikes my friend's dog, tobey, who happens to be a pamerinine mix. She wouldn't stop trying to fight with her for no apparent reason. Maybe a jealousy thing? She also likes to try to start fights with our other female dog named Nikkie. Nikkie is a Germen Shepard. Whenever Misfit starts something with Nikkie, Nikkie just trys to pin her down and stands over her. Misfit usually lays and turns over showing her belly (a sign of give up right?). Misfit usually starts if I give Nikkie a treat or soemthing. Missy (Misfit) is fine with my other dog, comet, who is a border collie. How can I teach her not to be that way? What is the correct way to punish a dog (show ur the boss) without causing them to become afraid of you or more aggrassive?
