Aggressive German Shepherd Mix

by Lynn

I recently took in an abused and i believe severely unsocialized German shepherd mix puppy. She is 10 months old. She is NOT getting along with my other dogs, i have a chihuahua and a rott mix. It has escalated to her attacking my rott and trying to attack my chihuahua. I keep them separated for right now but cannot live like this much longer as it is not fair to either of the dogs. She will also try to attack other dogs if we go on walks. Please.. I need help. Thank you.

I have had her fixed

German Shepherd Aggression
by: Adam G. Katz

Your problem is that your dog didn't get a motivational correction for exhibiting the aggressive behavior.

You need to:

1. Establish yourself as the pack leader.

2. Put all dogs on a "Nothing In Life Is Free" program.

3. Do not leave the dogs together unsupervised.

4. Get all dogs fixed/neutered/spayed.

5. Keep a leash and collar on all dogs, when you're with them-- so that you can start correcting the aggression.

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.
