Behavior issues

2 posts in this topic

A buddy of mine has two labs, a black and a brown. The black one has always been very weary of other dogs and has gotten agressive to the point of biting my dog, and recently bit the brown one that it lives with (unprovoked). She's never show agression towards people, but I wouldn't trust her for a second around children. In an attempt to help my buddy out, are there people out there that work with dogs of this nature? It's seem well beyond a training issue, but more of a behavior/social problem.

Thanks much

anchorman - ouch, not good. The one thing I'd be interested in knowing is why this dog turns into a biter when it does. There's usually 2 reasons that I've encountered:

1) fear biter - dog bites/gets aggressive when feeling threatened. These dogs typically need a low stress, quiet environment to live, ie AWAY FROM PEOPLE out on the farm.

2) dominance biter - dog shows aggression cuz he thinks he's all that. This dog needs to know where he falls in the pecking order (master and kids first), and for lack of better terms, needs his butt kicked to put him in his place. These dogs can be worked with to come to that understanding and will *usually* be OK, but some of them will just keep waiting for the opportunity to take the top dog spot again and show dominance over dogs, kids, wife, etc.

Either way, it's not a good situation and your buddy needs to intervene with this dog NOW before something terrible happens. Keep us posted.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
