(Reading Pa)

I took in Pebbles from a family giving her away. Got her shots, neutered, & chiped. She is verry sweet cuddly etc.. EXCEPT when playi g fetch or when we have food. She gets possessive & attacks our other dog we seperate them when they eat but it still happens when we habe food.

Correct the instigator
by: Adam G. Katz

First, they need to be crated separately.

Second, you need to start with the Nothing In Life Is Free program. (see below), I also include this in my "Secrets of a Professional Dog Trainer!" -- which you can find at

You will also need to learn how to correct the instigator-- and how to make your corrections meaningful. (Adam's book is excellent for this, too).

In a nutshell, it comes down to respect. If your dogs respect you-- you can tell them, "No!" and your correction will have meaning. If they don't respect you, then it doesn't matter what you say or do. You gain their respect through obedience training, learning how to administer a motivational correction and by adopting a "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach in your household.

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.

All the best,
