Comment on The Dominant Dog – Dealing with Dominance in Dogs by Julie https://shibashake.com/dog/the-dominant-dog-dealing-with-dominance-in-dogs/comment-page-3#comment-925548 Mon, 29 Mar 2021 19:14:30 +0000 http://www.shibashake.com/dog/the-dominant-dog-dealing-with-dominance-in-dogs#comment-925548 Feeling frustrated and disappointed! I have a 11 year old spayed female beagle mix Dixie, wouldn’t hurt a fly and a 10 month old queensland heeler Sierra who is still intact, has had her first heat and will be spaying soon. Dixie has hated Sierra since we brought her home at 7 weeks old. Now that Sierra is bigger she is having dominance aggression towards dixie and it’s unpredictable and she just attacks out of no where. I’m thinking she is jealous and seems to happen with me and not my husband. I’m Sierras person more than my husband. Sierras a good dog except for this one thing. I have to keep them separated and the moment I let my guard down she attacks Dixie. I cannot have her continuously attacking Dixie she’s 11 years old , she’s older and she is a very innocent dog and not fair for her to be attack out of nowhere. Sierra does get favored and we give her a lot of attention due to the fact of her being a puppy she spoiled. I’ve done all Sierra’s training myself your basic sit stay leave it etc. a trainer around my area is quite expensive looking for ways to be able to handle this myself so Dixie does not get hurt and I can nip this in the butt and hoping that spaying will help Sierra is getting exercise we go to the beach every weekend. The only interaction with other dogs is at the beach if you have any suggestions that would be wonderful! Thank you

Comment on Nothing in Life Is Free (NILIF) Dog Training by louise https://shibashake.com/dog/nothing-in-life-is-free-dog-training#comment-925511 Sat, 27 Mar 2021 07:16:31 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=8822#comment-925511 Hi,

Thank you for this article it is very informative. Was wondering if you have any further advice for us. We have a 13 week old golden retriever puppy called Cora. She is a good girl most of the time, however sometimes she wrinkles her nose up at us when we tell her off the couch. I have started to teach her the off command and when I show her a treat she comes off for it. However if I try to mive her off or pull her collar then she makes this face and shows her teeth a bit. I am worried this is aggressive and want to resolve this before she gets bigger. At the moment she is ot allowed on the couch at all and wears a lead. If she won’t come off on command for a treat i will use the lead to get her to come down. Do you have any tips? Any advice would be appreciated

Many thanks

Louise

Comment on Are Off-Leash Dogs Happier Than On-Leash Dogs? by Geegee https://shibashake.com/dog/are-off-leash-dogs-happier-than-on-leash-dogs#comment-924978 Thu, 04 Mar 2021 14:14:12 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=6868#comment-924978 Hi great that you trained your dog (not being sarcastic!) I have a nervous dog with high prey drive who needs to stay on the lead. She is very reactive if an off-lead dog invades her space, which is stressful for both of us, and puts both dogs at risk of a fight. Sometimes afterwards she just freezes on the spot and doesn’t want to walk any more. Therefore I would like to ask please don’t let your off-lead dog approach any dog on a lead. My dog’s problems cannot be fixed by training (due to her breed and history) but can be greatly helped if other dogs/owners respect her space. Thanks

Their ingredients come from China. Possibility of going out of biz. This is comment one that i have found recently, there are many more comments about this Brand. We just discovered that WellPet (makers of Wellness brand foods and treats) have started sourcing some preservative ingredients (green tea extract and mixed tocopherols) in China. Because of this, we have decided to discontinue those products. … Wellness canned food will remain.”

Comment on Second Dog – Adding a New Dog into Your Home by Jordan Hutzler https://shibashake.com/dog/second-dog-introducing-a-second-dog/comment-page-3#comment-924752 Wed, 17 Feb 2021 19:37:35 +0000 http://www.shibashake.com/dog/?p=3702#comment-924752 Hi there,
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?
