When we go on walks she likes to growl and bark at other people when walked by her or towards, so I try to avoid walking in others directions. With all her bad behavior she often has switches in her attitude, in the house she knows what not to do, and she knows some commands I teach her, No-Sit-Stay, shes still learning. So although shes a good girl, I don’t know what to do to teach her how to not be so aggressive. Any advice?

Comment on Dog to Dog Aggression – Why and How to Stop It by Emily contreras Fri, 10 Aug 2018 18:30:55 +0000 Hello. I have a doberman lab mix, she is very big and we got her from the pound. She was listed as “not suitable for kids/dogs” but we decided get her anyways, i have 2 other siblings in the house. She is wonderful, she playful and all! but we encounted a problem while having her. She has major dog aggression. And for some reason she just randomly starts barking a a person for no reason, i mean in a doberman/ guard dog thats a good quality to hhave i guess but. we want her to be a family dog. She is so nice to family and freinds and everyone who we let in our house. But seriously, the sight of a dog will get her AGGROVATED asf. We found out that she is slightley better with puppies. When we first got her, she always wanted to run out of the door. And one day she did. She even attacked a cocker spaniel when she got out, we cant afford training, and we want to keep her. Ive looked everywhere but her aggression just cant stop. We dont have 2 dogs so we cant practice. All i want for her is to be able to let her off leash and play outside without the possibility of her attacking a random dog.. Please helP!

Comment on How to Stop Dog Escapes by Steve Monchunski Wed, 08 Aug 2018 03:35:02 +0000 My “last 2 dogs from day 1 walk them around outside next to me
They get the feeling of the yard
And to be close

Next when dog is let out I blow the dog whistle, as soon as he comes he gets a treat, I do it when he is in the house just random so he know come to The whilste
Honestly not much can stop him when I blow that thing
He is full speed

When I start the walk
Do the same walk so he knows his way around
Than I let him lead so he knows where the house is when I get home I say the word home
Than I use the word take me home and let him direct me home

And lastly I long leash, it’s 25 foot rope made my Remington
I don’t hold it and we walk around the block, if I need to I step on the leash
And now he feels more comfortable wearing that long leash.
I stilll use the whistle once a day
And he comes a running

Ever. If the dog runs away and you call him or her back never punish, this way when they do they won’t think I’m in trouble tell them good boy/ girl every time they come to you when called

Even at dog park he stays about 50 feet from me, he will look back to make sure I’m there
I can even take Floyd into woods
And walk him if he gets out of sight I blow the whistle

Never punish always reward and you can walk freely with your dog, and they won’t run away
Plus play with the dog as much as possible
This was they want to stay with you and in the house

Comment on The Dominant Dog – Dealing with Dominance in Dogs by Anonymous Wed, 01 Aug 2018 06:43:32 +0000 My 5 year old boxer bull mastiff Ruby-ALWAYS GOES FOR THE OTHER DOG! Regardless of what the other dog is doing, or shows aggression towards absolutely anybody unless you have met her a few times. Makes it difficult to take her to dog parks- even if she has a muzzle she will still bulldoze any other dog and pin them down as if any other dog is a threat and there is nothing that can be done. She is a 50kg dog made of all muscle- we rescued her as she was passed from house to house and we think someone tried to use her as a fighting dog. She’s okay with one of our mates dogs but that’s it. Even a trainer couldn’t get near her to help us- she was dead set on getting him!

Comment on The Dominant Dog – Dealing with Dominance in Dogs by Meag Mon, 30 Jul 2018 18:25:38 +0000 hi!

I have a year and a half year old pit bull boxer mix. She is a great dog, very smart, huge cuddler, loves humans, dogs, and cats. She is dominant though. She will tackle another dog, and then lay or sit on them. She never bites but does get loud. Because of her breed people get scared of her with their dogs. I want to be able to take her to the dog park without worrying about other dog parents commenting. She’s not aggressive whatsoever but this is just cause for concern. Any suggestions?

Comment on What Does Your Dog Smell Like? by Sandra Simmons Mon, 30 Jul 2018 09:28:18 +0000 My yorkie has no smell, no odor or fragrance. He just smells like air without any traces of fragrance or odors. Is this normal for a dog?

Comment on Dog Anxiety Problems – How to Deal with an Anxious Dog by Tasha Fri, 27 Jul 2018 03:27:31 +0000 I have a 2 year old Jack Russel mix I rescued at 3 Weeks old from a dumping off a county road. He started chasing his tail aggressively when touched or when something loud happens or when another dog gets close. I have read and read about how to help him and excerise and playing aren’t helping any. I want to take him to vet to talk about medications to help, but he is so young to be put on a long term option like that so I am still searching for help.
I also have problems with grooming, baths, nail clipping, or if I have to doctor anything. He goes crazy. I am his person it seems so he isn’t so bad with me and we power threw it but it’s so exhausting … any advice???
