Psycho-Dog aka My Little Dorkie

by Maria R.
(Aiken, S.C., United States)

One day, my daughter, brought a sickly little dorkie puppy home. Since, she had school the next day; guess who got stuck taking care of this sickly pup. Yes - myself, mom. Now, two and half years later - we have an overly aggresive, not to mention spoiled rotten, Goober Dog. But, recently, this dog of ours, literally has lost his doggie mind. He not only bites strangers, and neighbors, but his household members, also. Please, help me to understand why this little dog has turned into Cujo. Yes, he is like my third child; therefore, spoiled rotten. He has always been protective of me. But, now he literally bites me to get to others. When trying to exercise Goober without a leash - he chases everything that isn't rooted into the ground. Which terrifies me to death. What if he actually catches that rabied squirrel or those horses that got loose? When walking him with a leash - he bites and fights the leash the whole time. And, you must remember people he sees everyday, even my daughter, he attacks; especially if they go to leave our home. This is when he latches onto their ankles, their pants, their shoes. And, then it is a struggle to unlatch his lttle teeth. And, 90% of the time he succeeds in leaving his mark. I've actually had to pry his mouth open to remove a friends toe. Now, please, help me save my sanity; since my dog has lost his.

Does The Dog Understand?
by: Adam G. Katz

Hi, Maria:

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

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


2. If he understands that he shouldn't be aggressive, then he's 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 to learn more.

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.
