Are you using burrows, by chance?

I am not using any burrows, and none are set up either.

pidjipi states 0006834 this is happening when training war animals as well.

I just saw this in my fort. I wasn't selecting a specific dwarf to be the trainer, I left trainer as "Any".

This happened in my fort just now as well, I can upload a save if necessary. I tried opening up another training zone, but that didn't alleviate the issue.

Happened to me too. I embarked with 2 dogs, one male and one female, the female got trained, but the male would always generate a "No creature available" warning

Embarked with 5 females and 2 males, and no permutation of training orders or zones gave me anything other than the Animal Not Found spam

I have had this issue in every fort I've tried to train war dogs in.

I have this issue too. Only the dogs which I embarked with can't be trained. And there is another fun. The dogs embarked with don't give birth. There wasn't any puppy birthing in my fortress during the first year, until a female dog came with the immigrant the second year.

I also get this same problem when trying to train Semi-Wild animals, like Rhesus Macaques

I am also getting this problem on 40.03.
I create an animal training zone, set a dog to hunting training (Any trainer) and once the trainer takes the do to the training zone it starts spamming the "no creature" message.

I uploaded my save to dffd: [^]

I just encountered this bug as well. Female dog cannot be trained, nor give birth.

I also have some sheep that may be affected. Though I can't train them, they do appear to be unable to breed. Two ewes and a ram haven't produced a single lamb in around 2 years. I bought two goats from a caravan and they had a kid in a few mere months.

Looks like lingering combat data that was checked in one place but not another (causing spam). Should be fixed for next time.
