    We have this black lab named KC she is 8 months old and will not listen to save a life. She is really friendly with people and other dogs. But just doesn’t want to listen at all and will not move when she is put on a leash I would like to take her on walks but she makes it impossible . I know she is only 8 months but I am starting to lose patients with her. No matter how hard I try with her she doesn’t learn I try everyday to train her but she is stubborn. For example when u tell her to get off my lap and out of my face and push her away gently she comes right back and does it over and over again. I am almost at the point where I want to find her a new home. And she isn’t fixed yet which we r doing this month but will she act a little different once she is fix and all healed up.

  19. Christine Decaprio says:

    We just found a possibly 1 year old German Shepard dog that my husband and I adopted. I have had a 6 year old beagle/pug mix who I thought would be ok with her but I was very wrong. She is very nervous and while he was sniffing her she went after him, not out of
    Viciousness because she’s a big mush but out of fear. I was wondering if you provide in home training that could help us get these dogs to coexist. Thanks for your help.

  20. Ally says:

    I have seizures and I am wondering if you could train my golden retriever mix to become a service dog?

  21. LaTosha Boersma says:

    I adopted a big beautiful Lab Mix from Bell county Sheriffs animal shelter and she’s around 2 I think spayed and all. Shes house broke and a perfect dog inside sits and shakes BUT now I see why her last owners turned her over to them. As soon as she gets a split second she jets out your door and RUNS RUNS RUNS Forest Gump don’t have anything on the dog. And she will not stop when I call her name and you start walking up to her she takes off. Its took us 2 hours to corner her in a yard to catch her. She loves my kids and I don’t wanna get rid of her but as soon as she ran my kds were chasing her which pushed her more and put my kids and her in danger. I don’t want that to happen again. Of course my kids listened when I told them to stop running her lol but that dog hardly got tired. I hope there’s someway to break her cause I want to keep her. :(

  22. robinwheeler says:

    Hello and thank you for sharing about your situation. We have helped many people overcome similar challenges with bringing a new dog into the home. Please contact us as soon as you can so we can schedule a free meeting with you and your dogs. CentralTexas@SitMeansSit.com

  23. robinwheeler says:


    Thank you for asking if we train service dogs. We are not set up to certify service dogs. The best thing to do is start by getting your dog through the CGC test and then moving on to the more challenging Public Access Test. We can definitely help with getting your dog to pass these exams and see if there are ways to help you move forward in getting them certified. We would need to meet with you to discuss individual details. Thank you for your inquiry.

  24. robinwheeler says:

    Hi and yes we can definitely help with what is called Boundary training. Please contact us to set up a time to meet with you. 254-541-3343

  29. Kami says:

    I have a 1yr old beagle that we adopted from animal control in August. He’s a sweet loving dog but he’s a handful with behavior. My husband says he’s untrainable and after 6 weeks at petsmart training and very little progress I’m worried he’s right. I’m not ready to give up on him though. I was wondering if you provide any in home training or home like simulations? He’s just like my kids and a perfect angel when he was at training class and a terror the moment he got home! Somehow I need him to learn that he has to follow directions at home too. Can you help?

  30. Sally Davoust says:

    We have an 8 month old rescue Malamute/Shepherd mix. We’ve been able to get her to sit, but passed that…..everything is a chew toy. She has anxiety issues about staying in her crate….She chewed through the plastic crate and has now remodeled her new metal crate. She jumps on people, counters, table edges…..We’re staying with our son and wife until we find a house. We left a message on the phone listed. HELP! Did I mention that pour soon has two tapping dogs that hate mine?

  34. Tammie says:

    Hi- I recently got a Great Dane puppy. He is 15 weeks right now and I am thinking about putting him in a board and train program. He has already picked up sit and almost has lay down, but because he is going to be GIANT I would really like to have him professionally trained. Can you give me a quote and details on the board and train program you offer? Thanks!

  35. Dylon Sanborn says:

    I have a year old Anatolian shepherd mix . We have had him for about three weeks. He and my wife bonded the first moment they met. Up until a few days ago they’ve been inseparable. A few days ago he suddenly got very aggressive. He started out nibbling her and she told him to stop and he would stop. Then over a few days he’s gotten more and more aggressive. She is covered with bites and teeth marks and bruises and today he lunged at her and tried to bite her face. She’s rather small and he is very strong so she can’t get him off of her on her own. She’s afraid to be around him and is very afraid of him now. We have tried to Regain dominance over him and let him kno who’s in charge and it doesn’t work. He will rips her clothes off of them with his biting and pounce on her. Today he started doing the same thing with me. He is not neutered but we plan on doing that this week. She wants to keep him but is afraid of him. I would like to keep him too but if I can’t get this under control we are going to have to bring him back to the adoption center. We have kids in the house and I can’t risk him biting them.
    We don’t have a lot of money and I work full time but she is home all day with the dog. I don’t know what to do at this point I’m ready to bring him back to protect my family.

  36. VeronikA says:

    Pawla (female, 6 yrs old Ridgeback-lab) Jeannie (female, 3 yrs olde, ridgeback-patterdale terrier) Pawla joined our family as a little puppy and Jeannie also when she was about 3 month old. For the past few months there is a lot of insecurity and aggression. Pawla keeps attacking Jeannie. About things, people she thinks that are hers. Such as my daughter…bones etc. Pawla doesn’t limit this to Jeannie but also other dogs. Jeannie now is very insecure and does not act normal around other dogs anymore. she also growls and snaps at dogs who want to play with her or sniff her. I need help yesterday. We are moving privately to Germany in April. I cannot put my daughter at risk or other dogs. Please help me ( my dogs)!

  40. Kelly says:

    Our Boston Terrier (Diesel) just turned 2 yrs old. We have owned him for 9 months. He has a sweet and loving disposition with us but seems to have an aggression issue towards other dogs. Trips to Petsmart and even the park have stopped because of the constant barking and growling. He’s only 12 pounds but has gone after a dog 3X his size. Do you offer a program for this type of thing? We need help giving him a well rounded life :)

  41. Jessica Palacios says:

    Hi this is jessica I need help with my puppy to get train I try and train him but he just wont listen he never wants to stay in his little puppy carrier and he is very kind with people and especially little kids but just wont listen to us and we just need help to train him?

  42. Shamika says:

    I have raised two pitbulls together since puppies. All of a sudden they started fighting to kill each other. But when they are apart they lay at the door and cry. Once the door is open they fight again. I refuse to Getty rid of them. I have one that stops on demand and one that doesn’t listen at all. The one that stop has been testy with other dogs the one that doesn’t is just mean to his brother. It is becoming a heart ache but i know there is hope.
