Aggressive Boston

by Kathy
(Hercules California)

My 1 1/2 year old Boston has bitten several children. Its always unprovoked. She just turns into a wild aggressive sounding and acting dog. She does play with other children. But I'm worried this is genetic. This is extremely upsetting to me. I'm really feeling like the only solution is to put her to sleep. I never see it coming she just turns into this crazy dog.

Stop a dog from biting
by: Adam G. Katz

Here's what I advise:

1. Get a muzzle.

2. Teach the dog obedience exercises, so that she learns she must hold a sit-stay and down-stay, regardless of distractions.

3. Make her hold these commands (gradually) around more stimulating environments. If she shows aggression, correct her back into the sit-position. All while you're working with her or in public, she should be wearing the muzzle until you get her so that she's no longer showing the aggression.

4. Work boundary training exercises, which will quickly teach her what "No" means.

5 Use the "No" command if she shows any aggression.

Right now, she either doesn't understand what "No!" means; Or she doesn't trust that you'll keep her safe.
