Jessica asks...This question is about:
Monty is a beautiful Golden Retriever/Lab? mix, and is about 6 or 7 years old. 2 years ago, he was given to us by our old neighbors who were moving away. They asked us if we could find him a good home. We knew that our neighbors always had kept him chained up because he was aggressive. They were very careful to keep him out of the way of visitors, and only let him off in a fenced yard when no one was around, quickly chaining him up when visitors showed up. They also told several people who frequently visited them to throw rocks at him if he acted too aggressive. rnrnAfter our neighbors gave Monty to us, we moved him onto our 40 acre farm out in the country, and tied him up for a few days, but in that time he never showed signs of aggression. We let him off the chain, and he proved himself to be a loyal, loving dog, who won the hearts of our whole family. Since then, he has welcomed many visitors to our farm with barking and tail wagging, but no aggression. He is the sweetest of dogs to everyone—with one exception.rnrnMy brother-in-law lived in a little house behind our neighbor who used to own Monty, and he threw rocks at Monty at that time. He dislikes dogs, and he and his young family fear and distrust Monty. And they are our next door neighbors. Though my brother-in-law never would throw rocks at him again, Monty will not forgive him, and at times acts aggressive towards him and his whole family, and everyone who comes here from my brother-in-law’s property. Monty has gotten much better, and does not always act aggressive as he used to, but he still frightens them at times. My brother-in-law has no desire to do his part to mend his relationship with Monty. He thinks it is entirely Monty’s problem, and that we should change Monty’s behavior or get rid of him. He does not want to go out of his way to do anything to help us accomplish this. Is there anything we can do?
Cassandra asks...This question is about:
I cannot get my "baar, baar" any lower, but it is apparently not low enough. Lulu does not respond/submit and stop agressively barking unless I shake a metal bowl filled with the chains near her ear. This is a very exhausting practice that must happen several times a day. And repeated at frequent intervals unless she is isolated in a back room of the house, away from the windows overlooking the street.
Brittany asks...This question is about:
my dog has seperation anxiety, and he screams all night long sometimes destroys metal crates. we have tried shock collars and the noise collars but it doesnt do anything. If we cant find a solution soon we will have to get rid of him. thats the last thing i want.
Julie asks...This question is about:
We are having problems with Angel and Daisy. Angel is 11 years old and Daisy is 9 month old. They are fighting more and more. When we first got Daisy we thought that maybe because Angel is my dog and then we bring Daisy into the house which also became my dog they were jealous of each other. But it has been since May and they are still fighting with each other. We are afraid that somebody is going to get hurt. There has been no blood shed yet but close. We have been separating them after we break up the fighting but it has not helped. Is there anything else we can do????They are both females and neutered.
