Ruger is a ticking time bomb

by Taylor
(Fitzgerald, GA usa)

Okay, first off Ruger, the German Sheppard, is my mom's dog. And he has just snapped at her. He is becoming ridiculously unruly. He is just over 7 months old, and he is fixed. He jumps on the counter, steals food, then goes and hides behind a chair. When we go and try to get it back from him he gets aggressive, he snaps, growls, and barks. So then of course we get the broom to try and steal it from him without getting bitten. And today, July 13, 2014, he was snooping on our min-pin chihuahua mix cage, the little dog was not in the pin. And my mom said "no get out of there" in a stern voice. And Ruger turned jumped and snapped at her. We are getting fed up with him. And we dont know what else to do other than put him in the back yard all day to run around terrorizing squirrels and chickens that brave our backyard. Will someone please tell me what to do to help her and ruger before my dad decides to deal with it himself.

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

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.
