It’s a very superficial sneeze. Although cute, i don’t reward her until she barks.

I brought my dog out alone and fed alone .it was a stressful time . We had to leave eventually . Make sure you keep seperated when your are not home and save your money so you get a place .
I had gates seperating every room ! Ugh I feel bad for you but it takes so much work but you can do it

I’m wondering which dog you feed first? I’ve heard the alpha is supposed to eat first, but he’s so jumpy that I set his bowl down before hers. I guess my bigger question is, they get in fights because they both think they are alpha. She was with me first, so she thinks she is the boss, but he is much bigger and younger and faster. They have a history together, are friends, lovers, and enemies on the same day. Who should be alpha? I know (me), but between the two?
Thanks for your help, I love your website!

Comment on Dog Shock Collar – The Good and The Bad by Bill https://shibashake.com/dog/dog-shock-collar-good-bad/comment-page-4#comment-876409 Fri, 11 Oct 2019 23:25:21 +0000 http://shibashake.com/shibainublog/dog-shock-collar-the-good-and-the-bad/#comment-876409 We have used shock/tone collars with great effect to keep our dogs home. If you hit the tone before you hit the shock it takes very few repetitions before the dog associates the tone with a shock if its action doesn’t change. Eventually just having the collar on is enough to keep our girls from chasing deer and or coyotes for long distances. I understand the emotionalism this sort of device generates and nothing is appropriate in all situations. The devices are easy to abuse and I suspect that is where they much of the bad reputation they have among certain groups. All I can say is we have used them on 5 dogs over the past 20 years on our farm. We have packs of coyotes that will do everything they can to lure our livestock guardian dogs to come to them. and kill them. When the dog takes off and doesn’t respond to our recall all we have to do is press the tone button and the dog stops, turns around, returns, and of course is given a reward for coming home. We are asking them to go against instinctive behaviors and the fact that a tone and a follow up short shock, if necessary, is enough to stop them from doing what feels completely natural but could get them maimed or killed is a great relief to us.

Comment on Dog Discipline – Should We Beat or Hit a Dog as Punishment? by Ellen https://shibashake.com/dog/dog-discipline-punishment-beat-hit-dog/comment-page-4#comment-873233 Mon, 23 Sep 2019 17:37:15 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/dog-discipline-hitting-spanking-slapping-beating-a-dog#comment-873233 I have a yellow lab mix about 40lbs. I am at my son and daughters house to live. They have two bigger dogs. My dog is ver anxious and is on meds to calm him. The other dogs are females. We tried intro in a neutral place. As soon as my dog saw the other dog he growled and lunged. My dog really likes my son.
I am thinking that since my dog has been with me constantly, it might be a good idea if I hold my sons dog and he holds mine to intro them again. I think my dog is possessive of me as well as being anxious. What is your opinion?

Except the stubbornness. She doent bark, bite or pay attention to anything on walks. She concentrates on staying one ft over to my left. The biggest, meanest dog could be barking away and she does not even turn her head. She wont eat in front of people, lick anyone, put anything in her mouth but food. I only see her teeth when I brush her. She will not tak a treat from you hand. You have to show it to her and set it down and walk away..then she will eat it. Her safe spot is the left pillow on my bed. She will not lay down anywhere else in the house but there. She is by far the slyest dog I ever worked with. I have trained many dogs , including rescue dogs and wolves. This dog does not care if you have a treat All she really wants to do is lay on the pillow..she will stay there all day. When I call her to go out, she runs to bedroom door and stops. She waits till I am far enough away from the door that she can get back to her pillow before I can close the door. I have never delt with a dog as stubborn than her..there is nothing you can entice her with to train. As long as she comes when I call and stops when I stay, there is nothing she does I have to correct. If people come to the house, she runs up to my room and will wait for me till I go to bed. She ignores my sons German Shepard and my Daughters 2 Huskies. She want no part of them.

My shiba inu Koko is three. She is the typical shiba, loving but stubborn. I’m trying to get her to go to the bathroom in our fenced in yard. I have even had neighbor dogs use our yard and still no luck. I have to take her on a big walk daily. Please let me know any help.

Thank you
Kristy
