I disagree with this.

There are plenty of men and women who should not raise dogs.
I've seen plenty of men and women who can and have raised dogs.

Probably best to not generalize 50% of the entire population due to your own ignorance.

I've seen lots of women who have raised dogs that became aggressive because the woman never popped her titty out the dogs mouth.

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

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. :)

Lmao

That's awesome!

Also, I know it may sound a bit redundant being that you're out in the country, but take her on a walk around the yard on a leash (with treats of course). She'll realize she doesn't have free reign any longer, but that's a small price to pay for a slice of pepperoni ;)

We do walk often. We mostly play ball in the yard though. The heat is a little too much so we have to do short fetch sessions multiple times a day.

I do have a muzzle for her and tried to associate it with good things when walking- but she parked her 70 lb rear end and wouldn’t move.
She’s a bit stubborn some times.

When she squats and won't move, slide your foot up under her butt. She'll move. I don't recommend your good shoes for this trick Chuckle

The Dog Whisperer technique works.





That's not Cesar Milan^^^ but it's what worked with my rottweiler mix that came with the house.

Anytime he was aggressive, I'd say "no", then I rolled him over on his back and held him down.

Wait for it to lick it's nose, that's the sign of submission.

And use verbal "no" commands first, and if it doesn't stop, roll it on its back.

You'll have to spend some time on it.


She is 100% obedient until there is a trigger, which is any outside noise or movement or person.  So I’m am wondering if meds will chill her out enough so that when a trigger happens, I can’t get her attention to redirect her.

I only know of dogs on Xanax for things like fireworks or car trips.  The medication won’t stop negative behavior, but it might relax her enough to be able to focus and learn a new behavior.  She is very eager to please- she just can’t handle outside stimuli.

She sounds a lot like my dog though Loki never went through that much trauma. His issue is other male dogs so I just keep him away from them and any grown man that comes into my house is pre warned not to be jumpy or loud until Loki gets to know him. That alpha roll works well but has to be repeated.

Do you have a good fence around the back yard? If you need a place for her, I would look rural. Find a rancher, we are great with dogs. That pitbull deal was awful, and no doubt tramatized her. V6sRZf4

She's showing signs of protecting you.  If you spend time with the new neighbors (children). She may be willing to accept them. But, don't be surprised if she doesn't.  If you do give her Prozac. If will take about a month to see effects.  I see no reason to put her down. She's only doing what she knows.

I have never thought of a fence within a fence!

I also never will leave her outside unattended even if there is a fence.  It’s impossible to catch her alarm barking if I’m not right there to redirect.


Euthanizing her never crossed my mind until that rescue had said it.  She’s never bitten anyone, so it seemed extreme.
I think it is. She is not a lost cause Heartflowers

OK - have we not been clear enough that Guest Trolling is not tolerated here?

No more of this - thanks in advance!
