Amen.. and has solved any dog issue I have ever had. Can't really say it enough... establish that dominance of what is ok and what is not. I'm just not a small dog person, but only because I have never been around one that has not been a pain!Simply establishing firm boundaries would probably go a long way.
Laughed at the pitbull testicle implant coment, not the incident. That's a crappy situation.11 years ago we bought a pup. Everything was very promising until we had her neutered at 6 months.
I think instead of neutering, the vet installed testicles out of pitbull.
The dog's demeanor changed completely. The dog bit my 5 year old hard, then turned on me and bit me.
She went for a ride with me, and she was put down. I was sad. Something had gone wrong with the simple procedure, I believe she was in pain, infected or something.
It's a tough spot. I don't envy you. Do what's right for the family.
@JLS is dropping some good knowledge in this thread. Resources I've reviewed and I'm gonna use to make some minor adjustments in our program at home.Many people believe obedience is the way to become pack leader. This brief article shows you how to establish yourself as pack leader by managing your dog.germanshepherdfamilydog.com
Without some human behavior changes, this might simply be an untenable situation.
Seeing it has only been this last month we have had problems I’m sure he cracked that tooth which led to all the distrustful chewing. Throw a new pup constantly harassing him I’m sure he is dealing with all he can. We can fix both those problems so I think we will get past this without any more incidents.
