Here`s another great article:
I apologize if this isn’t allowed here, please let me know if there’s a better sub for this and I’ll gladly post it there.
TLDR: my mom’s aggressive dog needs a new home or he’ll be put down.
The long version: my mom’s 6-year-old Goldendoodle Tucker is sweet 99% of the time. Except for a few occasions where he’s been over-stimulated and snarled at/bitten my mom or stepdad. In every instance, we’re able in hindsight to pinpoint what triggered his aggression, but they’re vague enough that it’s not possible to avoid them completely, and my mom and stepdad don’t have the experience training dogs to handle this themselves.
They’ve had trainers come to the home to work with him, they’ve tried medication, they’ve taken him to a dog “boot camp,” nothing has worked. In the latter instance, the trainer sent him back after a few days because she felt that keeping him at their camp was causing Tucker more stress than the potential benefit? I guess because it’s difficult to train out a behavior that only happens on occasion, right?
My mom and stepdad have unfortunately come to the conclusion that it is best to have Tucker put down before he bites someone outside the family, or a child, etc. I’m posting here as a Hail Mary in case anyone with experience in dog training is able to adopt a dog with some baggage before it’s too late, or is able to point me in the direction of an agency that can.
Once again, please let me know if there’s a better place for this post! Tucker and I thank you all in advance for your help.
