Dear Bark Busters,rnrnI have a 9 year old American Bulldog named Nina and two months ago she was viscously attacked by 2 pit bull mixes at a dog park. By the grace of God and an amazing vet Nina survived. She has always been socialized, and is a very loving dog. Since the attack I am very leery about letting her around other dogs. What should I do? I don't want to keep her isolated, but I am traumatized and fear for her safety.rnAny advise would be great.
Carol asks...This question is about:
Our dog is friendly towards most dogs and people however will not let anyone except children, including family in our house. I realize this is a protection issue but bothersome to guests especially family. She is a rescue dog. What can we do? Is there a solution?
Tory asks...This question is about:
The older our dog gets, he keeps developing "phobias" or things that make him nervous or aggressive. Ever since he was a puppy it was gloves that he didn't like. Now it's long sleeves that cover part of your hand, hoods on jackets, and now he doesn't like if you stand in the front door way of the house (half-in/half-out). Some people he is fine with and others seem to make him really nervous. When people first come in the house he gets really excited, tail wagging, smiles, tries to jump until scolded, but then at the drop of a dime, he turns aggressive towards some people.
Stephanie asks...This question is about:
I have a maltipoo that needs some dog training. She is going to be 2 in August. She has problems with barking, not listening, going to the bathroom where she pleases and she is really bad with other dogs. I also have a male dog at home that is 4 and has never had these problems. Could you tell me what training program you would suggest and how much it would cost? Thank you
