    Stewart's- BIG dogs, tall, heavy boned, stocky beauties...our stud was a wonderful and beautiful black Chow...
    Big Mack. One day, he had done something, can't even remember what and I'd come home from work, tired and
    bitchy and started in on him and wasn't realizing I'd backed him up in a corner. Ragging on him, I suddenly 'caught'
    a certain look in his eye...a warning...and instantly knew I'd gone too far! Shamefaced, I dropped my scolding
    finger, lowered my voice, backed out of his personal space and offered my contrite apologies to him. Great & noble
    dog he was, he graciously accepted and we went on from there-a lesson I've never forgotten and taught well by him.

    As another wonderful post here stated, humans & animals alike, we are always individuals, therefore unique & different!
    I would like to hope that anyone reading the various methods offered up to questions asking for help, would understand
    that LOVE, KINDNESS, COMPASSION & RESPECT are inherently and obviously used in any method of training and even
    more so when reprimanding.

    I did suggest using the ALPHA submission hold to one of the post and thinking about it later, regretted that answer. For
    all the reasons that Jennifer brought up in her brave and excellent post, it can be hurtful, harmful, dangerous & deadly if
    it goes badly. It bothered me and I did not repost with my reconsidered answer and I'd like to 'Thank You, Jennifer' for
    your excellent advice and for starting a wonderful conversation & excellent advice and wisdom from all here. Texas Carol
    Thanks @Texas Carol. I see you did the same thing I did. A lessoned learned for both of us that had a good outcome that could have been very bad. Makes you wonder when you see these stories on TV about how the dog attacked the owner what really happened.

    This thread REALLY helped me a lot, thank you Dozersmom for posting - I havent been on here for awhile but just last night Otis was biting and being agressive toward me so I resulted to pin him to calm and immediately I felt "this could go bad" and stopped. I will NEVER try that method again and have made an appointment for tomorrow to see our trainer to learn better techniques to curb his biting.
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees

    Well as long as we are sharing stories I have one you all have to hear. When I managed the daycare my bf would occasionally Come in and hang out . When we first met he was terrified of dogs, HE was attacked by a dog at age 5. I convinced him to start slow and just meet a few of the dogs we had there. He really started to enjoy it I think. He even agreed to let me get a puppy , that's when I brought Dozer home. He would often come in watch the group play through the windows and ask me ?? He noticed that some of my bossy male dogs often attempted to mount each other. I explained all the reasons dogs mount, play, excitement, dominance, ect ect and didn't think much of it. He seemed content with my answer as He didn't really ask anything else about it. Fast forward a couple of weeks. I was at home in the shower, and I hear this god aweful puppy screaming noise. My heart jump in my throat and I start to panic.Thinking my Dozer was in serious trouble, I jump out of the shower with a head full of shampoo suds , grab a towel and fling open the door. What do I see when I open it? My 6ft 200 lb boyfriend on all fours on the floor thrusting his pelvis in an awkward back and fourth motion. Underneath him is my tiny 12 week old puppy with the most confused and horrified look on his face I have ever seen on any dog. I yell "what the hell are you doing" Trying to hold my towel up keep soap out of my eyes and not pee my non existant pants from laughter. The bf explained that Dozer tried humping him and he figured he would stop it by showing him who it the boss like the other dogs at my work do
    If tears could build a staircase and happy memories a lane, I could walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again!

    @dozersmama.......True story, When Vegas was between the age of 1 and 2 he was a baaaaad humper (still has his moments with company) Joe was on the floor playing with Vegas and Vegas started humping Joe from behind. Joe did the same thing!!! He spun around and grabbed Vegas and started humping him and saying "How do YOU like it!!" I was shocked as I was watching then I rolled laughing. Vegas just got more excited minus the humping, he thought it was great play.
