Overly protective behavior

/ by

sourced from: https://www.reddit.com/r/Dogtraining/comments/beu6hm/overly_protective_behavior/

Here`s another great article:

I have a 6 month old GSD, Navi. Shes a sweet dog and very smart. She has most of the basic commands down (sit, lie down, stay, leave it, drop it). She is also bell trained to ring a bell when she needs to go outside to go potty. And has learned some phrases like "it's time to say goodnight". She'll go to each kids room and hop on their bed and say good night. Also knows "it's time for bed" and will go into her kennel at bedtime. On walks she wont pull and stays near.

I've been trying to socialize her as much as I can. She tends to be nervous and stressed in public. Normally it's just her and I out and about. She stays by my side, gets lots of treats, all that fun stuff. I will also have strangers give her treats to help with the process. For the most part shes been great and gets it quickly.

About two weeks ago I took my kids with Navi to the pet store. She was perfect until I went to pay. I handed the leash to my stepson, turned my back, and a couple with a large dog walked fairly close to where Navi and the kids were. Navi lost her mind. Lunged forward at the dog, was doing her "I'm gonna eat your face off" bark. I quickly got it under control, but not the experience I wanted.

From there its seemed to amplify. Weve been traveling a lot more. Going hiking, to the beach. The weather is finally nice and we as a family are doing outdoors stuff.

Navi is a giant stress ball the entire time. At the beach she just did circles around the entire group and lost her mind if anyone came within 50 feet of us. On hiking trails she loses it if anyone passes. Some of it I do recognize as herding behavior. She keeps a close eye on the kids and the circling behavior definitely was her checking the perimeter of her "herd".

I know socializing is key. Any suggestions to getting her more relaxed with being in public?

Normally I keep her close. If she starts getting stessed/excited/agitated I'll have her sit by my side. I'll talk calmly to her. Praise her and give her treats for calm behavior.

I know I need to get this under control. Shes 50lbs at 6 months. If shes still have this behavior full grown, it's going to be a nightmare. Any creative advice would be greatly appreciated. I've never had a GSD before. Have had border collies, and recognize the herding behavior. I'm more concerned by the crazy protective behavior. I want her to be protective, it's why we chose this breed. But having her be this protective in public is not safe. Plus she is so stressed and just looks miserable.

How to get a one year old unsocialized dog to learn dog cues?

Here`s another great article:

Are there any resources that can help me figure out how to adjust a one year old, unsocialized dog into my own pack. She was bought at around 1.5 months old and not socialized with dogs so has no idea how to read other dogs, and she gets so excited when meeting people and dogs she will jump all over and lick and grab. With interactions with myself and other humans I am able to calm her down with a bit of effort. But my own dogs are not so patient when she jumps all over them, so I haven't been able to integrate them.

Can protective behavior cause a dog to nip at feet/ankles?

/ by

sourced from: https://www.reddit.com/r/Dogtraining/comments/beunni/can_protective_behavior_cause_a_dog_to_nip_at/

Here`s another great article:

Hi all, I have a 4 y/o ACD. I have been taking care of him for almost 6 months while his owner (my bf) finds better living arrangements. My bf has used rather harsh training methods in the past with this dog, resulting in the dog being insecure, fearful/aggressive and not confident in general. I am happy to say that through much positive reinforcement and lots of bonding, we have made really great progress!

My question is- this dog will nip my feet and ankles if I make any type of loud noise on purpose. For example, there was a bug in my kitchen and I swatted it against the wall with a kitchen towel. The dog ran in and nipped my feet. He backs off immediately and this behavior is coupled with head down, ears back and maybe a bark or whine. This happens on numerous occasions but only if I make some sort of loud noise on purpose. FYI- we go on daily 1-2 mile bike rides and he has plenty of training time and mentally challenging toys. I do not believe this to be an energy level/boredom issue.

It is possible that he does not like the loud noise- as I said before he is insecure and fearful. My question is, could he be trying to herd me away from what he believes is a dangerous situation? Or does he just not like the noise and is getting a little aggressive? How do I stop this behavior? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is it possible to socialise a 1 yo dog to behave better with other dogs?

/ by

sourced from: https://www.reddit.com/r/Dogtraining/comments/beuuss/is_it_possible_to_socialise_a_1_yo_dog_to_behave/

Here`s another great article:

Hi I’m hoping I can get some advice on helping socialise (with other dogs) a 1yo dog that has recently come into my care.

Background: Dog is 3/4 Boston terrier 1/4 chihuahua, desexed. He was my dad’s dog until recently when my dad came to live with us and now I have taken over caring for him so he has effectively become my dog. My dad got him at 12 weeks old but unfortunately never took him out around other dogs (despite being told to).

Problem: When I take him out for walks and he sees another dog he gets extremely excited and goes a little crazy to the point of leaping in the air and letting out high pitches whines to try and get to the other dog. He’s not nasty or aggressive just super crazy and excited and trying to leap all over the other dog. Naturally other owners are a bit put out and it’s embarrassing.

My question is can I do something to help socialise him better and reduce this behaviour? I know it’s much better to do this when they are pups but unfortunately that was missed. I don’t know where to start with trying to rectify this.

Otherwise he is a great dog and I’ve taught him recall and sit so he is trainable.

Backed out on puppy regrets

Here`s another great article:

Apologies if this doesn’t belong here. I’ve been using this sub for a few months now as I prepared to bring home my baby goldendoodle. I found out last week that my roommates dog has worms. It is being treated and the vet said I could bring home my puppy as long as they stayed separated. That said, the dog isn’t the best behaved and keeps getting into my room and my stuff which makes me feel like keeping my puppy away would be hard (we work full time). It’s also been having accidents in the house which I feel is unhygienic and could spread diseases to my puppy. Also, I don’t want my puppy to be influenced by this not ideally behaved dog. So after all of this, I decided it’s best to not bring a puppy home and told my breeder about the worms and she agreed it was best.

Needless to say I’m SO upset and sad right now. I’ve wanted this dog forever and my “puppy hunting” got my though some real hard times the last few months. I’ve been watching it grow the last 7 weeks and was only a week away from getting it. Unfortunately this month was the only time for a long time that I would have been able to take vacation time to stay home with a puppy. So I don’t know that I’ll have the opportunity down the road.

Here I am sad and wishing I hadn’t told my breeder. Did i overreact or am I doing the right thing by not getting my little guy?

Parents, please train your human kids too.

/ by

sourced from: https://www.reddit.com/r/puppy101/comments/beu68j/parents_please_train_your_human_kids_too/

Here`s another great article:

Please bear with me as I rant. I was at a puppy social today with my 6 LB Boston terrier, Nori. In a group of maybe 10 dogs, she was the smallest one. The point of puppy social for me is so that my pup knows how to react to other pups. The added interactions with humans is nice but she’s great with adults and kids so that’s not my goal.

Now in this one hour span of time, a 7 year old kid screamed my puppy’s name probably every 5 seconds, chased her around, pulled her from under the chairs and kept grabbing at her. I asked him to give her some room, let her play with the other dogs but he just wouldn’t back off. I went to sit away from the social with Nori and because the kid couldn’t see her, he just walked around the room screaming her name. When he spotted her, he ran over and started grabbing her. This whole time the parents did absolutely nothing.

I feel like parents should explain to kids to back off and not harass someone’s puppy. Yes, it was a little chaotic but you need to control not just your dog, but your kids too.

Am I wrong here? Should I be more patient? Does that situation allow a parent to be more lax and inattentive? I just don’t understand how that’s an ok thing for a kid to do. There were other kids too and they were great with Nori and other puppies.

New schedule has made life so much better!

Here`s another great article:

I’ll admit, for the last couple of weeks I was sick so was lacking on the walking and training my dog Ares has needed. So when I finally took him on a walk again after a while of lighter exercise it was a nightmare, to say the least. I decided on trying a new schedule and now my whole life with Ares is getting so so much better. Granted, not perfect.

I’ve been taking some of the advice I’ve seen here to tire Ares out a little before walking. I integrated training sessions (he’s now a drop it pro!) into his tug-of-war and fetch play time, and he starts getting tired in as little as 15 minutes! Took him on a walk after a drink of water and boom! Leash pulling has been nearly resolved! Not only that, but he listens better and keeps to my side when he gets spooked (mostly).

I’m so happy on walks now and so is he. I even set a record today according to my watch. Life is good! Puppy tax!
