Aggressive 6yr old boxer/beagle mix

by Judy
(Brooklyn, NY)

My husband and I rescued a beautiful 4 yr old boxer/beagle over 2 years ago from NYACC. She is sweet and loving most of the time, and when we are home she listens to commands, but when I walk her she pulls me everywhere and is very aggressive towards other dogs we meet. She can not go to dog parks because of all the fights she starts.

I got some training for her over a year ago and for a while it was working. But then we moved and she has slipped back into her bad behavior. I can not afford any more training, which runs over $150 an hour. I'm at my wits end. I love her so much and hate to see her like this, it is coming to the point where walking her is giving me anxiety (which I'm sure is part of the problem). Any help or advise or tip or anything would be appreciated.

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

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.
