Re: Help needed ASAP

Fire trainer. First do that for your friend. Then tell them to enjoy their pet. The bite sounds like a confused, possibly a bit spoiled pet, who freaked and snapped as a "warning" and was pushed to far by a over alpha-ed trainer w their own issues ( ex,all must bow to me now! !). Rolling a...

Re: Growling at us?!

My vet yeeeears ago told me the same to roll over the dog...man that just creates a conflict and a worse dog. Yah dont do that anymore. Tue worse to a dog is to get up, cross your arms and walk away, leaving the dog.. "see ya!". A pure shun..dog runs up just keep up the shun.! There is a g...

Re: Two Weeks! Give em a break! :0 )

I can attest to the importance of a 2 week shutdown. I am so glad we stuck it out with our pitbull.....their personality really doesn't come out until 2 weeks anyway. And during that time, it REALLY builds your bond and establishes you as the leader of the house. It's hard sometimes, but sets your ...

Re: Two Weeks! Give em a break! :0 )

Thanks. Yea, I keep the leash on her at all times esp. when around the smaller dogs. My wife wants for them to all get along and lay around together. I feel its too risky esp. right now and given her size, if she gets annoyed or startled, it could get ugly really really fast. I have her indoors, th...

Re: How to deal with extreme dog aggression

Living and dealing with REAL dog aggression is extremly hard, challenging, and isnt easy to correct. Compulsion type correcitve based training done not 110 % will probably get your dog to kill another dog or possibly bite the trainer/owners. Most average people who take in more than one dog really a...

Re: How to stop jumping & transition out of the 2 week shutd

Good advice from all. Remember jumping gets attention, the turning of your back to the dog, no touching AT ALL , no excited voice..nada... is all good. Yelling, pushing, the old throw a knee up can only excite. Here is a good excercise for new dogs, it also teaches the "four on the floor" ...

Re: Help... dogfight

One thing I have found over the years is there really isnt "just out of the blue". Things have built for awhile, one dog is being a bit pushy and one is being submissive, and we sometimes as humans dont see this , we see it as like the one nipping at the other during play as "oh its j...

Re: Two Weeks! Give em a break! :0 )

So its been six weeks since we brought Molly home. She's been adjusting rather well! She is a lot more relaxed, she doesn't walk around whining nearly as much as she used to, and she is learning new things very quickly. We taught her how to go and lay on her bed while we get her food ready. She lea...

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

Its definatly not to late to start a two week shut down, this dog has had to absorb alot in a short amount of time! Its a very common mistake made by the best hearted humans , so dont feel bad, just hit the reset button, read the two week shut down..or at least the first page. Alot too fast can set ...
