He has attacked both. I recommend that Shibas be the only breed in the house or at the very least of opposite sex. He went from so sweet to extremely aggressive without warning.

I solid smack on the nose with a flip flop and then a time out let him know I am the alpha male in the house. He still is learning but has improved a lot in the last two weeks. (Dog is not a puppy, year and a half old.) Showing anger gets and dominance at his bad behavior is working well.

Comment on How to Calm a Fearful or Reactive Dog with Desensitization by John https://shibashake.com/dog/how-to-calm-a-fearful-reactive-dog/comment-page-2#comment-862652 Sun, 07 Jul 2019 16:15:50 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=10691#comment-862652 My dag is scared to bits of bicycles. This fear has come out of nowhere. I am trying to alter his reaction to bikes at the moment and gathering as much info as possible.
Clicker training with rewards seems to be helping but a long way to go yet.

I trained my male to “no bite”. As you know, they are very smart dogs. You have to show them you are alpha NOT them. Once I put my foot down hard verbally (not hitting ever), he fell into place. I still have to work with him, but he always gets better. Sometimes the females are actually more tough than the males.

Comment on Off-Leash Neighborhood Dogs by Frustrated neighbor https://shibashake.com/dog/off-leash-neighborhood-dogs#comment-862187 Tue, 02 Jul 2019 15:34:23 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=5608#comment-862187 I am dealing with this now with my neighbors, who think (for the last 10 yrs) they ever have to leash any dogs they own. Unfortunately they just ran out and attacked a sheep dog puppy just walking down the street – on leash, with its owner. Suffer puncture marks. I have been knocked down by their past dog (large choc lab) and now their 2 overly excitable hunting type dogs come charging at me and my small dog from their back yard. I’m done! My husband says we should say nothing and try and keep the peace but I am at wits end. I’m actually looking up dog deterrents for my yard today to come up with a more subtle idea until we can move away! So frustrated – I feel your pain, all of you! No reason for it, we DO have a leash law in MA. ugh 🙁

There is only one sidewalk in and out of my apartment and their is a guy with a growly, barky dog that thinks its okay to have his dog on the porch and is only holding his collar with a few fingers. Now my neighbor that is right next door is doing the same thing. I walked by and the dog growled and started coming towards me and she doesn’t have it on leash and is only holding it’s collar saying, ” relax, relax”. I reported it to the office, animal control, and non- emergency police number and they basically told me that until it attacks me there is nothing that can do.

She is the best dog. I had a fit when my son brought her home. I knew he was looking for a dog and i was ok with that. My only request was please make sure the dog has poodle in their mix.. I can’t stand dog hair. When he brought Molly home I have never heard of this breed nor did he. Can you believe someone would buy a $1,200 puppy without knowing a thing about the breed. Even if the dog was free I wouldn’t bring the dog home until I did some research. I quickly learned about the shibas and I was scared. I signed her up for classes fast she was only 9weeks old. I fell in love with this dog. She was tough for the first year.But going to daycare a few times a week and classes really helped. She loves people and she is great with kids all tho I watch her closely when around kids.My best friend has a baby doll cat that my dog loves. The cat loves her to .IT is a male cat almost as tall as Molly. When they see one another they rub noses and lick each other. I love everything about this dog except the shedding they shed all year long but twice a year they blow there whole under coat and watch out..That is why I wanted poodle mix in because of the shedding.Even though I hate the shedding I would not trade her for anything. She is the best.I would love to see a shib a nd poodle mix . Did you ever hear of that mix?

Comment on Siberian Husky Facts by Carol https://shibashake.com/dog/siberian-husky-facts#comment-861975 Sat, 29 Jun 2019 19:09:32 +0000 http://www.shibashake.com/dog/siberian-husky-before-buying-a-siberian-husky-puppy#comment-861975 Brittany, it’s been 5 years since your comment but I just had to reply. I’ve owned huskys for many years and currently have 2 that were both rescued. As the article clearly stated, huskys should not be off-leash, which hunting requires. Since they also have a high prey drive, which the article stated, whatever is being hunted probably wouldn’t be in the best of shape after being killed. I hope you found a dog that’s appropriate for what you have in mind and if not, search at your local shelters or rescues. Please, adopt don’t shop. Many, many huskys are killed every day at shelters because people didn’t educated themselves about the breed or did, but then hought they could change the things that makes them huskys. Backyard breeders and pet stores (puppy mill dogs) only want to make money and don’t care about the dog’s current or future lives. Spay, neuter, adopt, don’t shop.
