Aqua therapy helped quite a lot. Also, older dogs can become more snippy due to vision/hearing loss.

Comment on The Dominant Dog – Dealing with Dominance in Dogs by Rainie https://shibashake.com/dog/the-dominant-dog-dealing-with-dominance-in-dogs/comment-page-3#comment-846449 Fri, 11 Jan 2019 19:30:48 +0000 http://www.shibashake.com/dog/the-dominant-dog-dealing-with-dominance-in-dogs#comment-846449 Hi, thank you very much for the useful information! I have an Akita boy about 7months old! He’s a lovely boy. But, occasionally he jumps on me, growl and bite during the training section or after a long walk like he’s just frustrated with the command that’s given and started to be the boss as in like hey that is enough I’m done doing this!!!

He sometimes also like to jump on me out of a sudden and started to hump and I would just say no and ignore him!

Is there any more advice you can provide in case my Akita mouth on me during training section? He is a very dominant dog! Though he doesn’t growl at me when I try to take away his food bowl.

Appreciate your help:)

Comment on Off-Leash Neighborhood Dogs by Charles https://shibashake.com/dog/off-leash-neighborhood-dogs/comment-page-2#comment-845994 Tue, 08 Jan 2019 18:02:25 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=5608#comment-845994 Leaving your dog off leash is not only a bad idea, it’s illegal in most communities! I was chased, attacked, bitten and frightened by numerous dogs in the days I had a paper route. Complaining to the local police didn’t do much most of the time – they said it was difficult for them to enforce the law and they had to catch a dog’s owner in the act to issue them a citation. Fast forward many decades later, it seems to be less of an issue but I still know it’s possible I’ll be out walking with my four year old boy and a loose dog comes running at us through the street. Then I have to watch out for the both of us.

I have nothing against dogs in general – I know they make great pets for many people and many of them are completely harmless but I am SO SICK of people saying, “my dog’s very friendly”, “she won’t hurt you” and other BS. None of that matters when one of them is running towards me (and my child) at 40+ mph, jaw wide open and saliva dripping. Sorry, I’m finicky like that.

Dogs of course don’t like being on leashes, I get that. Sometimes dogs gotta go out and run free, I get that. Well, you as the dog owner made the choice to own a dog, so it’s YOUR responsibility to find some large empty field with nobody around so the dog can do what it wants and not pose a threat to anybody. There are also dog parks in many cities with fenced in areas for your dog to run around to its heart’s content (just watch out for other dogs). Too far to drive to? Not convenient? Well then I guess you are keeping the leash on – obey the law!

Don’t even get me started on all the times I’ve seen dog poop laying on the sidewalk by some entitled A–HOLE who felt it was alright to leave it there.

I see this blog post is around five years old – sorry I had to vent.

Comment on Shiba Inu Personality –Good, Bad, & Quirky by Coral https://shibashake.com/dog/shiba-inu-personality-good-bad-traits/comment-page-8#comment-845766 Mon, 07 Jan 2019 03:36:28 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?page_id=431#comment-845766 I guess I am lucky! My Shiba – Dallas – is the best! I had heard that they can be stubborn and need to know you are the head of the pack so we took him to obedience classes. He can do many tricks and is so entertaining. He is very quiet – unless he sees something and just like Sephy he barks a little until I acknowledge it then he is quiet. He can not be off leash – he will bolt. He didn’t use to get along with other dogs much – until we moved into an apartment where he got to meet a lot of other dogs. It still takes a few introductions for him to feel comfortable with some dogs but I don’t worry about him like I used to. He is so sweet and smart! He is the best! He is very cat-like – if someone wants attention from him – he is a bit aloof – if they aren’t paying attention to him he wants to greet them! He can be very affectionate – and will even hug me by putting his head on my shoulder when he sits next to me. Sometimes he just wants me to talk to him. If I talk to him he just stares at me. If I look away he makes tiny woo noises until I look at him and start talking again.
So I would suggest – you don’t just feed a Shiba – they require training and exposure to other dogs and people. And lots of love!!!!

Comment on Resource Guarding – “Mine!”, Says the Shiba Inu by Laurie https://shibashake.com/dog/resource-guarding-shiba-inu#comment-845272 Fri, 04 Jan 2019 11:51:55 +0000 http://shibashake.wordpress.com/?p=104#comment-845272 I’ve read through all of the posts on resource guarding. But I’m dumbfounded on dealing with my shiba Suki. Ever since Suki was a puppy she has unexpectedly gone after my feet. I used to give treats like smoked bones, pizzle sticks, dental chews. Long periods of time would pass with no incidents. Out of the blue she would attack my feet. I’ve taken her to trainers and an animal behaviorist but I could never replicate the situation. She does not food guard her dish or toys. The professionals have insisted she isn’t resource guarding because there is no warning growl, etc. I’ve taken away all chew treats and has only the nylabone and toys to chew. I haven’t had any incidents for over 6 months until Christmas. She went after my 95 year old mother in law and another guest. The only thing I can figure is there was a sealed Christmas stocking with rawhide chews for another dog. HELP!

Comment on Shiba Inu Training Secrets by Sakura Sano https://shibashake.com/dog/shiba-inu-training-secrets/comment-page-6#comment-844496 Sun, 30 Dec 2018 19:35:31 +0000 http://shibashake.com/shibainublog/shiba-inu-training-secrets/#comment-844496 I love your training tips here! My shiba girl is almost 5 months, Nilla. She is actually quite a dream child, so far. Dont get me wrong, she has her moments. But the biggest help in her training is my older Tosa Inu, Miyu. Miyu is 2 years old and almost great Dane size. She has the patience of a saint. The first time I took Nilla to the dog park with us, she screamed everytime another dog tried to play with her. It took about 3 more visits for her to start to get excited about going there. But after many rewards and meeting new friends, she has come to love it as much as her sister. Miyu also has helped me stop Nillas biting issue. A giant paw/arm on top of the biting puppy, and stopping playtime taught her that if she bit, then Miyu won’t play with her. We also fed them right next to each other right from day one to discourage food agression. Even training her on the leash was easier, she learned by watching Ms Miyu. Positive rewarding has really helped us. She loves praise and happy noises, so when she is bad, we ignore her or use a voice she knows is one that is disapproving and then stop play. Hearing some of my friends horror stories about their Shibas had me wondering if we should even get one, but I am very happy we did. She is a joy, a very independent, intelligent, and beautiful girl. Not to mention that she out hunts most of my cats! Oh yeah, and she LOVES her kitties. We have 4. They clean each other, play together, and even hunt together. Sometimes I feel she is more cat than dog. She loves their toys and how they group clean. The only thing we haven’t gotten her used to is our chickens, ducks, and geese. She is scared of them so far, which is probably a good fear for now. I think we will work on that in the Summertime more since we live in Alaska…

Comment on A New Puppy – First 10 Days of Hell by Anonymous https://shibashake.com/dog/a-new-puppy-first-10-days-of-hell#comment-844435 Sun, 30 Dec 2018 10:06:56 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=5803#comment-844435 Could be impa (immune mediated poly arthritis). My puppy got this plus a host of other immune diseases from 8mos to 1.5 yo. In her case it proved to be fatal. I don’t want to scare you, but if it persists, you may want to ask your vet. I sought out a neurologist and it developed into meningitis. I believe the root cause tho was from her puppy vaccines cuz she was healthy when i got her. My neurologist is so busy seeing patients with these problems that he books out months. I feel its reached epidemic proportions. I hope your doggy can surpass this, or its just something else more simpler. Im still reeling over this and our powerful pharmaceutical industry which is waay bigger than i’ve ever imagined.
Good luck…….
