I need some advice about an aggressive dog
#51
All I am going to add is this.

You do not "train" a dog.

If a dog is acting out, it is because that dog does not feel he or she has a place in the overall order.

The dog is NOT well adjusted.

A well adjusted dog takes no orders because he / she knows already what is expected of them.

A well adjusted dog will do ANYTHING to please.. it is your job to give them the tasks

If this dog is acting out, it is because she does not feel she is a part of the unit.

You have to work on getting the dog adjusted properly and in a secure place, a secure dog does not act out.. period.

The largest problem is that people try and treat them like kids, they are not.. they are dogs and have their own language. You have not learned it yet.

Aussies are by far the best dogs on the planet. they are smart, loyal and will learn their place and be wholly content very fast.

The dog has not failed you, you have failed the dog. understand that and correct the issue, even if you have to pay a trainer.. do not give that pup drugs, this is the same recipe that makes school shooters.. give em a pill.

take responsibility and be the human your dog needs you to be.

Easy to hold on to. Your dog needs to be trained. Some dogs need that. Talk to a trainer where you live and if you can afford it, get some lessons. Even if it's just a few lessons so you can get some tips on how to train the dog. But that habit can be broken if you train the dog. I found some links I liked, looked through 3 pages of them but they didn't quite seem like what you wanted. There are some youtubes on how to train dogs you might want to look at. These were the articles I thought you might be interested in. Good luck!!! Have the kids help ya if they are old enough. They can get some of their friends to be the walker-bys.  popnana   All hope is not lost but it will have to be a family effort. Have a family meeting and explain it to them and I bet they will all help you out. Even if your kids are in elementary school. They understand at that age. Hammer the point home as they can see what you have to do to the dog these days. So make it the family task for the next 6 months to acclimate your dog to strangers. If he is used to a crate, put him in the crate at the new home and take him out on a lease only for the first month or so. Acclimate him slowly to the place. You have enough helpers that you can have the dog play in the room and back yard with them for exercise? I hope this helps. I am not a dog expert but I do know that you can train an aggressive dog to adapt to people. An older dog will take more time but it can be done. They are not grown really until they are 3 years old so....  Dancebrian

Thank you for the links!

We have been playing the doorbell game for about  20 minutes and I’m already seeing some positive responses.

I just don’t know how much pepperoni I have on hand. :)

All you are showing her is that YOU can ring the doorbell and give her food..

That is not "training" her. That is confusing her.

I've seen no dog raised by a man that was aggressive.

Best not to generalize 100% of the population based on your own ignorance.

I can tell which forum you came from.

You should go back.

I don't give a fuck what the dog thinks, or you either for that matter. I gave the suggestion to @Jypsie based on my experience with the worse basket case of a dog I've ever met in my life that happened to work.

If you have any input besides bashing other's methods, I am sure the OP would appreciate your input. If not, then there's no reason for you to be posting in this thread.

I'd troll you until you were banned. You'd be here about 5 minutes.

One thing you can try that I don't think I've seen yet on the thread is Rescue Remedy.

Health food store supplement. 5 drops in the water bowl every time you refill it and a couple of drops directly into the dog's mouth if you are expecting company. It takes enough of the 'edge' off so that your dog is amenable to training and helps them maintain their zen states.

It's good for people too.

They do have a pump action spray bottle available. That does make it easier to administer to animals.
