Aggressive Akita

by Roy

We have a 4 year old male Akita. We have taken him to training but each year he is showing more aggression. This past year when I had friends over my Akita was playing with us and acting normal. When my friends and i started to leave he wanted to come with us. When I tried to close the door he bit at my hand and cut my finger pretty good. He never showed this again until this summer when my brother and his kids visited. When the kids wanted to go outside in the yard with me I tried to close the back door since we don't have a fence yet (new house). My Akita bit me when he realized he could not go out with us. He followed the bite with an attack on my arm. Contemplating putting him down we waited to see if he showed any more signs of aggression. He did not and has never even growled at my wife, mom or father in law. Finally, last week my brother came to visit for 2 days. On the last day as my brother was leaving without any warning my Akita turned on me and attacked me. We are putting him down next week. Is there anything we can do or is this the best thing for all concerned? Thanks

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.
