Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

I have never been so stressed and to the point of a mental breakdown in my life regarding an issue with one of my dogs. I never thought I'd be facing this situation..I was aware that Karma might be DA and was prepared to manage that but I never expected the HA nor was I even thinking of it when we w...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

If anyone wants to know why I have to withhold certain information and be careful of what I post then please PM me and I will explain. As far as her new owner, she is not a professional trainer or behaviorist, she is just a person who the vet gave a great referral to as someone who could manage a HA...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

Update We ended up finding a woman experienced with pit bulls and boxers with aggression issues so we will be meeting her and handing Karma over this evening. A vet wanted to give her a try and the lady said she could take her so we are going that route. I am going to make sure I get it in writing t...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

I appreciate everyone's input and we have thought about all of the variables involved with our situation and lifestyle and we are trying to be realistic rather than let our emotions take over. We want to do what would absolutely be best and safest for us, our friends/family/strangers, and for her as...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

I feel deeply ashamed and like I will get really bashed for this, perhaps I deserve it, but I said that we cannot afford a behaviorist. I recently lost my job and BF is supporting me, the 3 dogs, and paying for rent and all the bills, on top of his bills. We are both just 23. His mind is pretty much...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

Muttkip thats what I am reading from all the PB websites and rescues, a zero tolerance policy for HA. I was extremely shocked when she charged at the child totally unprovoked. It was like she did a 180. BF and I honestly do not feel comfortable with her anymore. I really don't want to keep her on a ...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

Would keeping her right beside me in public be sort of a tense situation though? She knows leave it and watch me and will obey them beautifully, but when she decides to be random and target someone it's like nothing will stop her. I have been trying everything I know. I've tried removing her from th...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

I'm just wondering how I could actually get a behavioral assessment on her if she does this at random, and I certainly don't want to be filming her going crazy when I should be paying attention to her. I should also add that we live in an apartment and God knows I don't need anyone reporting us. Sh...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

Did you perform a two week shut down with her? How many "privileges" does she have? Such as , where does she sleep, do you crate ever, etc.? You should look through these items and see if you're overlooking any of them. http://www.shirleychong.com/keepers/mindgames.html" onclick="window.o...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

I am sorry you are going through this. Sounds fear based which can lead to HA but and this is a big but, it is impossible to advise based on descriptions, someone experienced needs to see the dog in action. If it were me, I would be first making sure there were no medical issues, then finding someo...

Re: Human Aggression, we have a big problem with our dog.

I always try and think about that and not tense up in certain situations because I know some dogs will pick up on that. As far as I know I nor boyfriend has tensed up but at times we might be doing it subconsciously? We can be out walking her just fine, normal, talking/laughing/silent whatever and B...
