I have a 3 year old male husky, and just recently adopted a 5 month old female Husky/shepherd mix. My male usually gets along very well with female dogs, but he has already bit the new pup twice. The most recent bite drew quite a bit of blood on her snout. Im worried that my male is intimidated by her size, and that he just won’t accept her. She is very friendly and wants to play with him, but her previous owners kept her tied up constantly, so I dont think she quite knows the process of how to react around other dogs.

Thanks,
Jordan

Comment on Dog to Dog Aggression – Why and How to Stop It by Sara https://shibashake.com/dog/dog-to-dog-aggression/comment-page-7#comment-924643 Fri, 12 Feb 2021 11:48:43 +0000 http://www.shibashake.com/dog/dog-to-dog-aggression#comment-924643 I adopted a male dog four months ago, he is three years old. We neutered him two months ago because he doesn’t like male dogs, and took him to obedience school. The situation is much better, but he still doesn’t like to be close to male dogs. Any sugestion? Neutered dogs and female dogs ste ok, but intact males other story. He barks sometimes, less then before, and after obedience school I can control him better. If he sees male dog it’s ok, when I move behined the car he doesn’t react, but if the male dog soudenly appear then Jerry starts to growl and sometimes bark. What should I do?

Comment on Shiba Inu Personality –Good, Bad, & Quirky by Kam https://shibashake.com/dog/shiba-inu-personality-good-bad-traits/comment-page-8#comment-924636 Thu, 11 Feb 2021 18:28:58 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?page_id=431#comment-924636 I have been reading a lot about Shiba Inu’s and I really wish I had this information before I got one. I love my Shiba (3yrs, male), but I really feel as though they should stop marketing this breed of dog, as a domesticated animal. First of all, they haven’t been domesticated that long and their idea of proper behavior, as many other dogs adapt to home life, is so different. Shiba’s are not really meant for structured lifestyles because they do what they want, when they want. Their aggressive behavior is not manageable. And even though a lot of experts say that they need aggression training, I find that to be a lie. Shiba’s are like substance abusers. You can tell the person to stop using drugs, but unless they really want to, then they won’t stop. You can train a Shiba in aggression all you want, but if they want to be aggressive, they will be aggressive. This goes with any behavior of a shiba inu, mainly because they are sooooooooo STUBBORN!!! I got my shiba neutered thinking that it will stop his aggression, or even minimize it, which I find to be one of the main issues with shiba’s, but it did not help that much. It’s very unfortunate that a lot of information is not given to people in regards to the real characteristics of dogs. A lot of time when you research a dog/animal, it seems as though you only get the good information about them or their mildly destructive behaviors. You never get the real info about who they are, and that can be very detrimental. I suggest that if there is anyone out there that really knows the good and bad of dogs, to put that information in a book, website or some form of resource, so others can obtain that information when thinking of getting a dog. I truly don’t know what I am going to do with my Shiba at this point because I am attached to him and I don’t want to let him go, but unfortunately they may have to be an option, because I’m currently not a believer that training will work. To have to pay all that money during a time like this for training that may not be effective, doesn’t seem to be appealing. If anyone has any other options that have really worked for you in regards to aggression with shiba’s, please let me know. Thanks.

Comment on Do Our Dogs Love Us Unconditionally? by K WATKINS https://shibashake.com/dog/do-our-dogs-love-us-unconditionally#comment-924595 Tue, 09 Feb 2021 00:46:58 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=12465#comment-924595 All I kow is that I lost my rescue 12 year old black lab on September 10, 2019. He had advanced hemangiocarcinoma. We went in for shots and tags, and came out with terminal cancer. We got him when he was 6. So we only had a short time with him. He was a terribly misbehaved and confused pup. He drooled eveywhere. Stood and stared at the wall for hours on end. He was so weird sometimes. I think he was abused before he came to us. Stole food. Ran for the hills when he slipped out the gate. Had no interest or ability to understand playing ball or whatever. He chewed through door trim when left alone too long. He shed mountains of hair. But . . . the more people hated on him, the more I loved him. He crawled all over me when it rained or thundered. But I got sick for about a year, and was in and out of the hospital. When I fnally came home for good, he led me everywhere. He never left my side again. Couldn’t even go to the bathroom without that greying snout poking through the door. We had two last terribly hard weeks together. Then, late one night he began to pant and crawl on me, and I knew it was time to go. He refused to go inside the vet’s office and I fell and broke two ribs trying to push him in. The vet looked at x-rays and the cancer was pressing into his lung. I had to decide to take him home and have one more day, or let him go. I’ll never take a few precious hours away from another dog again. I regret my decision every day. I killed my dog before he was ready to go. Every second counts. And yes, it is unconditional love. I hope and pray every day I will see him again. Love them with all your heart and soul. They are one of God’s greatest gifts. And we really don’t deserve them. Yet there they are.

My husband just turned 65 and his present – a husky pup! This will be his 8th Husky through his life and yes, I think we are crazy at our age ;). But, she’s a love and while she will be a lot of work, we know this – hoping she’ll keep us young 🙂

I have first purchased a 5 months old puppy. She is very affectionate and I want to continue to encourage this. However her other antics can be stressful. Your tips, especially on energy and how to interact with them is very useful. Big thank you.
