    Default Lola and other dogs

    Yesterday I took Lola to her vets office for a picture with Santa, to say the least it was a big bust! The whole waiting room was full of people and their dogs. Lola has never been around a big group of people Or any other dog besides my aunts dog. A lady had a young boxer under a year but not a baby and she bend over to pet Lola and her boxer went crazy and went for Lola and bit her! Lola in turn attacked back, she was fine once they were in total different area's of the room. Then the breeder I got Lola from called and said she had Santa coming to her house to take pictures with her dogs and if I wanted pictures of Lola then bring her over. I took Lola over there thinking things would be different and they weren't! She only got along with her male dog. Her female who is Lola's sister didnt like her at all and they would attack eat other so we put them both on a leash and let them just close enough to smell. They would do fine that far apart and Lola's sister would act like she wanted to play and we would let them a little closer and Lola would get mad and start to bark then bite. My girls were petting the Lola's sister and Lola got very upset and tried running towards the kids put the leash caught her and she just barked and barked, she did the same when I tried petting her too. What the heck is going on besides Lola being a PITA!

    sounds like she needs more socialization, maybe signing up for a training class where she can interact with other dogs in a controlled situation so she can gain the confidence to be around other dogs.

    Puppy class is a good start. If you've never attended one yourself, then I highly recommend you do. Is Lola your first doggy? I know when my bf and I started classes with Stiggy when we first got him, we learned tremendously on what to look for, how to act, and how not to act.

    Look at it from Lola's point of view. She met a strange dog and it bit her. Then going to the breeders home, although she grew up there she is living in the 'now'. I do think she probably has a fear to overcome now. I agree that training classes would be very good, not just for her but for both of you. She will understand and learn you are her leader -- and protector.

    Lola isn't a PITA. She's a normal pup. Her humans THRUST her into a strange situation which, no doubt, overwhelmed her and she reacted. She simply REACTED. My own pups would barely manage through the carnage described here. It takes a very well balanced dog with LOTS of training and or exposure to stress and or exposure to different and strange situations -- along with very strong human leadership ---- to manage effortlessly through all of this.

    I love Lisa's suggestion; think through the situation through your pup's eyes. When Bea gets over-stimulated, she will react to other dogs by being snippy. When Bo gets over stimulated he likes to hump the humans who are giving him all the attention that's popping his brain cells. "No Touch. No Talk. No Eye Contact." would have saved the day here....difficult in that situation I'm sure though..

    ...and think about all the nervous energy in the room! All those dogs who probably RARELY get that kind of exposure and their anxious owners, waiting for a chance with Santa. Jesus.

    Ya I think it was a lot to deal with for her! She has never been around other dogs besides my aunts lab Bella and she is very submissive so Lola and her get along great but I think females have a hard time together sometimes. Im going to take her to the puppy socialization on saturday and see how that goes but Im nervous whats going to happen now. I dont know if taking her is going to scare her worse or if its the right thing to do? I grew up with pugs but they are different than bullies! I am still in shock because she is so good with my girls and NEVER is rough with them or me so I thought she would just go with the flow and handle it alright. She was really excited though and jumping all over barking trying to play with the other dogs when we first got there and they had a hard time getting her picture because she was so wound up. SO what you guys think should I take her to socialization classes or wait for the training to start?

    I would take her to training first, it's a controlled environment with a trainer to help you during the process. We did this with Bacon one he was a puppy and it's paid off 10 fold now that he is older.

    I agree with the others.... socialization in a controlled environment and since you mention being 'scared' to take her to class -- you need it as much as she does. She will reacted to your nervousness making it appear that she is being aggressive to the other dog because she is acting off of your nerves. make sense?
