Hello,rnWe've used your services in the past and I was wondering if you could tell me the best way to stop fence fighting. We have a new dog that has moved in and all 3 dogs are participating. They all walk away with smiles on their faces and they do fine when we've had play dates. Any suggestions would be great.rnThanks,rnMaria
Tim asks...This question is about:
Sully is a very energetic puppy. Sometimes too much. More recently, he has started nipping at my girlfriends kids. He is very protective of my daughter. He ALWAYS jumps up in my girlfriend leaving scratch marks. He is very hyper. If I leave him out of his kennel while I'm gone, I'm sure to find a mess in the house. Whether is be chewing on something or marking his territory. He is very vocal with me. How do I correct these issues as I am thinking of giving him away if I can't correct them.
Aja asks...This question is about:
My dog is the most loving dog a girl could ask for. She lives with my boyfriend and I. She loves us both dearly but she is slightly more attached to me because she lived with me before my boyfriend and I moved in together. I don't have a great deal of experience training dogs but she listens to me reasonably well...definitely more than she listens to my boyfriend. He kind of babies her and lets her get away with more than I do. That's the first thing that frustrates me. We aren't always on the same page and I know that affects her behavior. When we are in the house she's normally very well behaved. She is also pretty good on a leash...that's until she sees another person/dog or smells a smell she likes. She has always been great with other dogs and kids, she just refuses to listen when she sees one. She goes crazy and gets excited and it's impossible to distract her. If she sees a squirrel or smells something (or sees another dog from a distance) she will lay down on the ground and refuse to move. I haven't noticed a problem with unfamiliar women, but men she doesn't know really set her off. She is clearly fearful, and often aggressive. This makes it very difficult to take her out for the exercise and stimulation she needs and deserves. I really want to work with her, but again it's hard because my boyfriend and I aren't on the same page. I know that I'm not supposed to tense up and show that I'm nervous, but I also don't want her to pull the leash out of my hands and attack someone. What is the best way for both of us to approach this? Also, she jumps up and goes crazy when she sees people and dogs she knows and hasn't seen for awhile...the turn around and ignore her approach works for me, but doesn't seem to work as well for others, especially an 81 year old grandma with Alzheimer's.
