Deaf Aggressive American Bulldog

We adopted an American Bulldog last December, and found out a few weeks later that she is deaf. We hired a private trainer and we all learned hand signals. Our problem is that since she has reached maturity...she is 16 months old...she has become aggressive and it's very unpredictible. She has attacked our other dog, and has even tried to attack me and my husband.

She has had obedience training, and we established early on that we are the leaders in the home. She just keeps challenging us, and we are lost on how to handle.

Pinch Collar
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 her.
