    Our Murphy is a bit pushy and used to bark/growl at us for attention. Our trainer recommended either ignoring him or putting him in a "time out" (away from you in another room, or leashed up to a...

    I read somewhere that if your dog has an "accident," put a paper plate with some dog kibble on the spot that he peed, and let him eat it. Dogs won't want to eliminate where they've eaten.

    We have this problem with 2-year-old Murphy, too. He'll often jump up and nip at our hands or the sleeves of our shirt. Usually we say "no bite" and immediately walk away, ignoring him. He stops and...

    Should we call a behaviorist?

    I'm a little worried about Murphy, our 2-year-old shelter rescue. We think he's mostly basenji, and we adopted him five months ago.

    He's mischievous, but smart, and it's only recently that we've...

    Our 2-year-old dog Murphy "bites" hands and feet, too (not super-hard in aggression, but just in play). He also bites shirt sleeves (while you're wearing the shirt). Yelling OUCH doesn't work too...

    How many times does your dog go out?

    Hi all,

    Just wondering how many times a day you take your dog outside. Our Murphy (two-year-old basenji mix) goes out 4 times, sometimes 5 on the weekend: first thing in the morning, midday, after...

    Basenji anyone?

    Hi all,

    We've just discovered that our rescued-from-the-shelter dog Murphy is actually a basenji! Well, *mostly* basenji. He has almost all the basenji traits in both his looks and his behavior....

    Thanks lv4dogs!

    Murphy is neutered already. We'll definitely teach him "drop it." He's pretty smart and can learn new commands in one or two days.

    Maybe we should've taken him out this morning....

    Murphy only lifts his leg if he's standing against something (a hedge, tree, fence, even a parked bike!). He'll squat if he's in the middle of the grass.
