Thanks! I have thought about that but the problem is I would need to carry one around with me, and that's not as easy. I will see if maybe I could get a travel size bottle...

I was told by our trainer that a good dog is a tired dog. If I exercise Sadie before class she is then great but omg if I do not tire her out????? She is really wacky. If we want a quiet evening I have to go out with her tennis ball and tire her out. It really works for all of us.

Hey guys, when I play with Van Gogh he growls alot and is really vocal, he's not growling to be mean he's doing it as if he was talking;

If you walk into the house and he has his toy in his mouth he's wagging his tail and growling as if he's trying to tell you something.


How can I curve him from growling or will he just stop doing it over time, he's 8 months old.

This is something that I never want to stop personally. It's one of my very favorite things to watch. When a dog is playing and 'growling' it reminds me of a small child playing with her toys and singing because she's so happy in the moment.

Ky was here for 8 months and then one day out of the blue she did that, I was so happy I cried like a baby!

You might also try one of those compressed air cans. They do help stop undesired behavior in its tracks. Not sure why the work but they do. or a noisemaker of some kind--plastic bottle with rocks, etc. hassle to carry around but hopefully won't be needed forever.

BTW, I know all dogs are different, but Tucker's humping pretty much ended after neutering. He still does it a bit but it's part of playing (the dogs take turns! ).

I second this suggestion! I used it on Bryley with great success.
It's called Pet Corrector
