Aggressive Bull Mastiff Akita Mix

by Maureen

We have a large Bull/Mastiff/Akita(11 months) and a Staffy/Jack Russell(13months). Both are girls and are sterilised. They have been together since 12 weeks old and play well together. Their owners gave them up last month and we aquired them. We do love them both but the BMA has a very aggressive trait that is quite scarey. She has turned on the SJR and we ended up at the vets 5 days of getting them. Phoned the previous owners but they said nothing like this had ever happened before. The vet thought new house ,new dominance.

My daughter brought her Kelpie Cross male (20 months) over to say hello and there was a very torrid time. I chained my BMA up after the fight but she was so determined to get to the dog she broke her collar and started again. I had to hit her with a stick several times to break them free. No one was injured.We kept trying to get them friendly but after several attempts seperated them. Today our other daughter brought her Rotti (female 6mths) over and again she attacked even after several attempts we gave up.

We would like them to be able to bring their dogs over so how do we make that possible?

Pinch Collar For Aggression
by: Adam G. Katz

What you're going to want to do is: Buy and learn how to properly use the pinch collar. This will allow you to correct your dog in a manner that is meaningful. The choke chain collar is very difficult to give a motivational correction with. And it requires more "muscle" than I like.

The pinch (prong) collar is more like power steering.

Let the dog where a short leash attached to the collar, when you're in the house with him.
