Behavior & Training > My dog is irritating my neighbors by barking when left alone!

You have some good ideas, exercise is a big help, if you can provide enough to tire him out.
Keep working on independence training.

How is basic training going? Mental activity can be as helpful as physical activity.

Have you tried food dispensing toys? Hiding his food around the house rather than putting it all in his bowl?

How about company? Some dogs respond well to another living thing as long as it is easy going. A human sitter, or a neighbors relaxed dog, or even going so far as getting another animal ( cats sometimes work wonders )
What other things does your dog enjoy that might engage him?

Behavior & Training > Old owner wants my brother in law to give dog back

Unfortunate, but you are right.
If they had gone through the local pound/animal control they would have a record of the owner not want ing the dog. And paperwork would have been done to seal the deal.

The first time he runs off again, they may return him. If that happens, advise them to get it in writing.

So sad for the dog.

He is striking! I don't see this marking, well, ever, even though it is listed. Usually I see the two color, Dobermann markings.
Congrats.snoopy

When you already have a dog, you have to figure it may, or may not like the dog you pick.
I recommend visiting a shelter with your Lab, or putting an application in with a good local rescue. This will allow you to find the best match for you entire family.
From your request, you are on the right track. Adding a dog with equal or lower energy level than your current dog tends to work well.

My Chocolate Lab, Candy was as easy going as can be. When searching for a companion, she suddenly showed her picky side.
I must have looked at 2 dozen puppies and dogs before she and I agreed on Snickers.
Good luck. Let us know how it works out.

Choosing the Right Dog > Therapy dog/ Apartments opinion?

Jazz,
A person may not appear to have a disability, but may indeed have one.

The ADA certifies SDs for many disabilities, not all involving mobility. Seizure disorders, diabetes, balance problems are just a few medical problems that qualify a person for a SD, but would not be obvious looking at someone.
ESAs are often given the same rights and there is no physical disability but a mental or emotional disability.

Griffin is correct, sad but true.
If Pit bulls are expressly prohibited by your landlord, please assume any Bully Breed may also be excluded.
I know dogs that have no Pit, staffie blood in them, but they look like they do, which is all a landlord needs.

Talk to the landlord BEFORE you get a dog.

What were the circumstances that lead to the dog being rehomed?
Did they do any paperwork to transfer ownership?

I just read his biography.
Are his former owners seeing the results of any training done by your BIL and sister and thinking the dog is cured?
Have they taken the dog to the vet?

Any paperwork or documents would be good in establishing ownership. Otherwise it's his word against theirs.

Behavior & Training > Nipping at grand children and growling

I totally agree. Little kids and dogs can be a bad mix. Your grandma is a smart cookie.

I will bet the Murphy pays as much attention to Jazz as Jazz does to Murphy. Is it possible The kids can be taught to call Jazz and will get both dogs attention? It works this way with my hearing dogs, worth a try.
