Re: Protection Behavior

Obedience training can help with mental and physical exercise which will wear Tank out and probably make things go more smoothly at home (ie, Tank is tired), but it's not going to do anything to address the fighting at all. Some dogs, of any breed, just have "it" in them and it isn't somet...

Re: How should I handle this?

Maybe take a video of how it affects Ruby next time so you can show her. Surely she cares for Ruby or Ruby wouldn't like her, right? Maybe seeing exactly how it affects Ruby will open her eyes to how bad that kind of stuff really is, for everyone involved.

Re: 2 Dogs and a Baby - advice needed

Teaching her to "leave it" when it comes to anything doesn't have to be bad association. Get some super yummy treats and when you tell her to leave it and she backs away, tell her yes or good and treat. Sit and stay is another good one - tell her what you want her to do instead of just tel...

Re: Bottle Fed puppies and Aggression ?s

The video isn't really long enough to tell for sure, but some dogs are just vocal. My Chloé has the nickname Chupacabra (hence the Chupa in my name) because she made such a growling screaming ruckus from day one at 7 weeks old. She has absolutely no aggression toward dogs, cats, or people, but when ...

I have a spray from my vet that helps super fast, it's called gentocin, and mine get loratadine daily.

Re: Car Anxiety?

I'm going through this now with my Thor except he was screaming like a monkey and flying around the truck like it's an agility course. We've been working on calming down in the car before we actually go anywhere and also calming down once we get there. I don't even start the car until he's calm and ...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

:goodpost: Broken!! You can also try covering the crate with a sheet while he is in it at night, just so there is no eye contact. Mine are like BA's...they can be together, but ALWAYS supervised with my and my husbands full attention and never with anything of high value out. We go to bed with Chloé...

Re: My training plan for my new puppy

Per my Vet, no walking out of your house/yard until all puppy vaccines are done - usually 3-1/2 months or so. You can take them in the car, but only to places with no other dogs or keep them in the car. You don't want a puppy that isn't fully vaccinated touching the ground where unknown dogs have be...

Re: help w jumping

Yes, totally! You'll add the command once they start offering and then you'll reward for doing it on command. The most important thing is to give them something you want them to do instead of just saying "no"...thanks to PBF for that, I learned that here :thumbsup: It makes such a differen...

Re: help w jumping

Try telling her to do something other than jumping, like sit or down, and treat like crazy when she does. Sometimes no doesn't mean anything to the dog - you say no and she keeps jumping - no is no fun and jumping is. Sitting or doing a down and stay or go to mat or whatever you pick is still fun an...
