Aggression When Another Dog Invades Her Space

Aggression When Another Dog Invades Her Space

Expensive Adam,

Hello, I’ve a 3 year-old Australian Cattle Canine. She is a splendidly obedient canine, canine good citizen licensed and all the pieces. She may be very obedient and good natured to individuals, nonetheless she may be very dominant on the subject of different canine. Lately I’ve been having issues together with her snapping at different canine if they arrive as much as her whereas she is on a leash. This isn’t an issue if I inform her to take a seat and the opposite canine stays a standard distance away. She would not like canine invading her area and standing over her (she is barely 35 kilos, so most canine tower over her). I name it her “Napoleon Complicated”. I attempted to work on the issue by placing a muzzle on her and establishing conditions so I can appropriate her, however she realizes that she is in no place to indicate the opposite canine who’s boss whereas muzzled and refrains. Now we have lately began remedy canine coaching courses, which she is doing very effectively in.

Like I mentioned she is an ideal angel round individuals. In a remedy scenario she is unlikely to encourage different canine on or off leash who shall be allowed to be ready shut sufficient to upset her, nonetheless, if some occasion did happen, I might really feel uncomfortable together with her snapping at one other dog. In most situations, I can forestall a scenario the place she can be tempted to snap from occurring, nonetheless, there are some situations that may’t be averted. Do you could have any strategies? I am debating whether or not I ought to discontinue her remedy canine courses.

Thank You,
Katie

Expensive Katie,

That is actually extra of a handler sigue. It is your accountability to NOT LET different canine invade her area. Now, you’ll be able to appropriate her for the aggression – however on the identical time, it’s essential to present her that she will belief you, and that you’ll not let unusual canine from one other pack surprise up and get in her face. That is the job of the pack chief – to guard the pack. And you are not doing all of your job by letting strangers off the road stroll up and get too shut. I might advocate a strolling stick or a stun gun.

As for the remedy canine coaching – I might advocate that you just proceed, however with out seeing the canine in particular person, it will finally be a judgement name which it’s essential to make for your self and your canine.

That is all for now, people!
Adam
