Wheaten Terrier Mix agresson

by Jennifer K.
(Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)

We adopted our Wheaten Terrier mix about 18 months ago from Animal Services. She was approximately 2 years old then. From the beginning, she has shown aggression towards other dogs when we are on walks. Even from across the street, she will bark and pull constantly. I took her to classes, twice, to try to address this. I was talught Dr. LIn's method of distraction and treats whenever we encountered another dog. I have been using these methods now for a year and a half. Unless I stop every time (we live in a neighbourhood that is full of dog walkers at all times of the day!) and fill her full of treats, she goes crazy when she sees another dog. I am at the end of my rope, so to speak. We even had her put on anti stress meds to try to help. Although this helped a little, I don't feel like I have made any progress. She is a wonderful companion, and really sweet around the house (she even loves our cat!). Walking the dog, however, has become a very unpleasant task, and I want to be able to turn that around. Is there any hope?

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

Nothing In Life Is Free

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.
