Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I've had Zelda since she was 8 weeks old. We got through the teething and chewing phase (RIP to all my socks) and she was almost perfectly potty trained. Now all of a sudden she started nipping again! She is also using the bathroom indoors, not on the pee pads, when she hadn't done so in months. I've heard that this age is usually just an adolescent "teen" rebel phase though. Anyone else have any problems around this age?

My husky is not quite there yet, he's 3 months now ... But i did have the same happening with my golden retriever years ago. She was a really good girl till she was about 8 or 9 months old where she started to rip pillows apart, bite on furniture, be less obedient and some other mischief she didn't do before.

Ended up having to seperate her from the rest of the house when we were not at home and keep her on a shorter leash when we were home. This all lasted about 4 months that she was more rebelious and she calmed down to being her lovely self again. We didn't have any problems with her after that.

I heard similar stories from other people and they usually grow out of it after a while.

It was like day 1 all over again. The stubbornness, the acting out, the blatantly disobeying commands. Only lasted a couple of months though and now he is back on track. It was a real test though. Almost like he was trying to be the Alpha.
