    Default Any good tips for dog aggression?

    I have been training my EBD to cope with other dogs during our walks so far, superb! Each step is a milestone and an accomplishment. Overall, Porkie's a sweetheart. Just like anyone , she will fall short and needs to pick herself up again. She doesn't like dogs in her face, especially at dog parks. She will get aggressive . Is there any helpful tips or videos to help overcome this behavior?

    We had 2 week training , no sleeping w me and giving her less attention . I practiced commands with her and we apply them daily. To show her whose boss!

    We still need improvements in dog socialize.

    Thank you

    Default Any good tips for dog aggression?

    Sounds like you are progressing wonderfully! Socializing aggressive behavior I would say baby steps in a very controlled envoirnmemt. The strange thing is your own confidence plays a huge role too. If you think she will be aggressive, she will feel that tension and react. Start small with a friends dog (hopefully one who is very submissive) on neutral territory if possible.

    Oh and check out the post here called nothing in life is free . Excellent tips in there!

    Thank you so much for the tip. I will see if a friend will be willing to do this with me.

    I look at each day as a new day to work with her.

    She's improved so much! She understands " good behavior" and will look at me like , " my treat" with a huge smile on her face.

    She understands " ignore " when we see other dogs get riled up.

    She only let's mommy touch her. She snapped aggressively at the sales girl trying to put the harness on her to make sure it fit. I made it known to Pork Chop, it was wrong and mommy was mad at her. She sat quiet with her ears back during the car ride .

    I love this girl , she's a rescue that came from a shelter , to a foster dad and now, in her forever home

    We have a rescue too. Boris was abused so he has triggers. We are working with a trainer and he's making improvements even though they are slow and incremental. Congratulations for rescuing and best of luck to you and your special bully

    Update: Pork Chop still lounges at other dogs . I got practice with another dog mom . Consistency meeting the dog and his mom on our walks. She will be good than suddenly recognize the dog, lounges and barks. I tell her wrong and ask her to sit. She obeys and the dog mom is great! She says, it's ok Pork Chop .

    We will be checking out Canine Good Citizen Class. I am excited to learn and get Porkie calmer and socialize with other dogs.

    Thank you Congratulations on your rescue .

    Everyone here has been great ! I enjoy reading stories similar to mine and learn from them.

    We have challenges and obstacles but we never give up! Practice and loads of patience . These milestones don't happen over night, we work hard to arrive to these accomplishments.

    One thing in common we have no matter what we LOVE our bulldogs.
