    Default electric indoor fences

    Does anyone use these? Our boy sometimes gets riled up when people are over. He starts jumping and mouthing and just won't listen. Other times he's a mush. We tried bitter apple and while it works it isn't the solution. I had lessons from a dog trainer but after 3 weeks of heel, no, sit he really isn't better. The choker collar the trainer gave me makes it easier to walk him. I looked into the electric fences and am thinking about it.

    I would leave him on a leash or crate him till people are in and he is calm.

    We had this issue with one of ours and the leash worked well.. we would tether her to the stair way and people could greet her put she was not able to jump or bowl them over... few weeks of it and she was trained not to jump

    Ohhh you don’t want that in a house. A house is the “safety blanket/secured” place for the family dog. No easy fix, keep on him with training. These are Bulldogs which are a bit more pig heads. Duke is the same when visitors comes by. I use to put both in the kennel till they settle down which is like a good 10 minutes. Now with Nyala, I just have to say “Nyala back” n she greets the visitor with a toy. But Duke... that’s my lonnie bin...Hey it’s Duke... I leave him in the kennel, wait till hes calm down and just lays there. Open the door and he’s greets the visitor n walks away. I do tell the visitors not to play with neither or it will get them going. After a good 30 minutes they pet both n no issues. Duke is much better as if I open the front door to get the mail, he starts getting “the ants in the pants” and I tell him “NO, stay” and he does. He stretches his neck like a giraffe to see if someone is coming in but realizes no one is there and doesn’t bother. It’s a start in the right direction. You can do that too. Open the door and take it from there. Takes time n patients.

    I don't think I could have an electric collar on me especially if I leave the seat up on the toilet. "Honey, you did it again. Holy hell dear that hurts."

    To me, this sounds totally out of proportion. I live in a country where electricity is illegal in dog training, and I see no reason to shock a dog into obedience. If your dog is threatening and very aggressive, you will need to identify what it is that gets him started and then train him not to be afraid of/react to that. A trainer may very well be needed if the dog is posing a threat to you and your visitors, but you say you have been given a choker collar by your trainer. I'm not sure what kind of choker collar that might be, but I wonder if not a sturdy harness would be a better way to control a bulldog than to put pressure on his neck? Bulldogs are not very sensitive to pain, but their necks are sensitive.

    Sorry for sounding negative here but to me the solution for bad behaviour would not be electricity or strangulation but training based on positive reinforcement.

    How old is Dakster? I used training parties, with the friends that always come over. Works
    like a charm, takes time, repetition, and patience. Pain free training, and it sticks! Joey is now desensitized to people coming over, gets the No Paws command as people come in and is ALWAYS a part of every social gathering. She’s almost 4 years old now and we started the training parties when she was around 1 year old and had run of the house.

    I sure hope this helps
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!
