Very Aggressive Great Dane

by Jaimie
(Winnipeg,MB)

I have a 2 year old great dane, and she is very protective and aggressive especially to other dogs. She runs out of the house if the door isn't shut all the way and she will run straight to a dog that is outside. She will bite at it for no reason and attack it and has punctured a dogs in there chest.

She does show lots of love to me and the kids and loves to snuggle and play with us. but outside she tries to attack any dog that is out even when we are out walking. I don't want to take her out for walks or anything. We have her mom a 6 year old dane and she isn't as aggressive but has started to become aggressive as the puppy is getting more so. I really need to know how to control her. We love her and don't want put her down because of this aggression .. please help..


Thanks
Jaimie

Stop Dog Aggression
by: Adam G. Katz

Hi, Jaimie:

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

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

and

2. If she understands that she shouldn't be aggressive, then she'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 DogProblems.com to learn more. (You can click on the banner, at right).

And finally: 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.



All the best,
Adam
