Trainer

Yes we will but might take a while, we took him to the vet today and she said it would take a long time. Basically he is so scared of everything that it will take him a while to calm down and relax and not be so scared of everything. Since he was abused before we got him.

who knows
by: Anonymous

Who knows if he knows its unwanted behavior? He starts to try to dominate her and if I walk up and tell him no sometimes he will do it anyways. Its only during the day when he get exicted at night there is no fights and he is relax and sleepy. He also get very dominate and territorial, with all the cars and noises outside and he seems to take his frustation out on her if she is by him. Don't know if the leash and collar will really work because he is getting better on walks and only has problems with aggression about once a month, most of it is in the house. But we hired a at home dog trainer to come to our house and show us what we need to do.

Ask Yourself Two Questions
by: Adam G. Katz

Hi, Jill:

You'll need to start by asking yourself two questions:

1. Does the dog understand that the dog aggression is unwanted behavior?

and

2. If the dog understands that it shouldn't be aggressive, then the dog is choosing to ignore me. In which case, you have a respect issue.

Get a prong collar and a six foot leather leash and learn how to correct your dog in a safe and humane manner. I can guarantee that you'll see an almost immediate, dramatic improvement. Check out DogProblems.com to learn more. (You can click on the banner, at right).

And finally: 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,
Adam

Corrections
by: Anonymous

He is getting corrected when he does something wrong like barking, trying to fight, etc. But those kind of corrections when he is "in the fighting mood." However, doesn't phase him he continues like nothing has happen or he get worse and lashes out. I know it will happen again it happens like 3+ times a day when there is a fight and we have to break it up, the problem is that he is getting worse and not better so I think we are doing something wrong. I do try to let him know that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. He has been in obedience classes and did great other than the bite when he was playing with the teacher, he does any kind of trick you want him to do, however his behavior still continues to get worse.

The male boxer for right now will not bite the family members just the female dog. However, yesterday my mom pointed her finger at him and told him no and he nipped her finger, so that might change and get worse.

Motivational Leash Correction
by: Adam G. Katz

Hi, Jill:

Your problem is that your dog isn't getting a motivational correction for exhibiting the aggressive behavior. Hence in the video Leash and Collar.

It will happen, again. Plan on it. Be prepared, and have a way to administer a motivational correction, when it happens-- so that your dog knows in no uncertain terms: This behavior will not be tolerated. I go into more detail on how to do this, in my book.

In addition: Start teaching him obedience training exercises, and make him do behaviors he doesn't want to do. (Ex. Down-stays around distractions and making him stay down). That builds dominance/leadership and makes your corrections more meaningful.
