Here’s my last attempt to get Gunny-SGT around other dogs! If this doesn’t work, then we will have to accept him for who he is (lol). It just sucks when we have family outings and Gunny has to be separated and be placed alone from my other Grand-dogs (9 all together). So we just got this contraption and I am a little worried. My wife‘s hairstylist turned this on to us. Supposedly, she has an aggressive English Bulldog that has to wear it at times when she is with the other dogs in her family. She says it works great! As for his training, I will admit, he has calm down a lot towards the cat. He no longer wants to tear down the door when he hears his meow (yay), but I still don’t trust him around other dogs. If this doesn’t work, at least he can be the next “Jason” in the next Friday 13th movie OR maybe he can try out to be the next goalie for our Seattle Krakens.

I have somewhat the same issue with my German Shepherd. She’s 2.5yrs old. Listens to my commands but when she sees other big dog especially her own kind 🤷🏼‍♀️, stranger with a hoodie or vehicles coming up on the land or parked on our side road acreage, she’ll go after all. I raise my voice n she backs off. I find an electric collars helps enormously to train. Now bare in mind the owner also needs to be trained how to use it. The one I have is made especially for hunting dogs retreating ducks in one piece.

I too had a GS! I loved that dog dearly! He was before Gunny. He was great with other dogs and that is what I miss. Gunny is totally the opposite, but I do have the patients to work with him or just like I said before - I will accept him for who he is! As for the collar, I am new to the device. I would hate to put something on him to where it hurts him, and you are correct, I would need more information and training if I should go that route. Thank you for the advice!
 
Our girl Banks was a no other dog girl. She did well for many years due to training but could never be trusted without her color on. She was our 9 years training session ♥️♥️. Lambeau was the same way but we opted to accept him as is and didn’t bring him around other animals
 
If you do go the collar route, I have the Dogtra. You pay more but made for training hunting dogs. It has a much long distance ratio. So if a dog is 75ft or more further than you, you still have control. It has a “nick” button which you control the power of the nick. Its like flicking your finger on someone. It’s a good little flick n brings the dog back to reality. And yes up to you if you want to go that route.

You do what you have to when dogs are around others. My son came over last week to set up a big run he had on our acreage cause in a couple months we are having a 60th bday for someone n family will be bringing their RV’s n pets. Cause of Sadie she’ll be going in the run n we’ll switch dogs around to stretch.

We used that mask for both our dogs during training. They were not very pleased, but it kept them from hurting each other. And they actually cuddled together with them on. Almost as if saying "We're in this together!"

That is very good to know -- thank you!
 
We just saw these in Amazon last night, lol, It's like silence of the lambs for dogs. lmao. In all seriousness though, we were looking for something for Reesie for one, the nipping is insane and she does not like my sons Goldie right now, (still a WIP), but all she does is bark and nip at her and not in a playful way. With other dogs she's great with, but the my sons Goldie, her "devil" side comes out.

Basically she’s protecting your son n anyone that belongs to her environment. When one of my son comes over with his German Shepherd Mick n Pitbull Sable, both are walking around my son especially my daughter in law, Jake n Nyala will barge into the Mick if he’s too close to them. Neither touch the Sable as she’s is older n couldn’t care less. Now when the kids come over with all their dogs, Sadie goes in her run n Jake n Nyala goes on their little deck. Jake n Nyala are getting too old for fights. In your case, yours is a pup n that can be fix. You would need to babysit Goldie more often like for a weekend without your son around n work with both. Don’t forget, EB as you know are pig heads, they will do something if they feel like it. Jake is one of them n why he goes on the deck.
