We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast.

Dog becoming aggresive towards stangers

Recommended Posts

SDbowhunter

I have a 13 month old black lab. So far he's been a great dog, fetching machine. But lately he's been aggresive towards stangers in public places. He will bark and growl at my neighbors, after a quick stern NO and it usually subsides and he goes and greets them friendly wagging his tail. He gets tons of socialization with other people and dogs. But the last time i took him fishing he charged 2 people who pulled their boat next to mine and backed them into the corner of the dock. I chased him down and booted him in the side off the dock. I felt horrible kicking him but that was my first reaction. I dont beat my dog and realize beating a dog will get you no where. He stood sheepishly in the water for a couple minutes before i could get him to move. From what ive read and been told agression doesnt cure an aggresive dog. I have also heard using a shock collar is not the proper solution. Even though the lessons learned using the shock collar has proven to be stick whether he has it on or not. Anybody have experience with a situation like this?

Believe it or not I think your dog is probably reacting out of fear or nervousness-he sees strangers as threats, to you or to him.It might be wise to keep him under better control when around other people-on a leash or restrained. Walk around with him on leash and walk up to people, or have them walk up to you while you stroke his head and calm him. When he sees that the people are not threatening perhaps that will help. Most Labs are TOTALLY the opposite of course and try to lick the faces off people!

And then it could be you are the unfortunate owner of a bad dog. But lets try the first ideas-keep him under control, don't let him run around loose at the dock etc. He then becomes a TOTAL pain-in-the-asstrophyics to others. Result is they find the dog annoying....but its YOU they don't like! frown.gif

I have never had this problem with any dog I have ever owned but I have seen a few episodes of "The Dog Whisperer" and everytime he deals with an aggressive dog as soon as they start to become aggressive he will put them in a submissive position (laying them on their side and back). It seems to work for him.

P.S. I also stayed at a Holiday Inn Express

Thanks for the the tips. I was also told by a co-worker that if he continues to do this try to put him in a time out in a kennel for 5 or 10 minutes. I dont want to beleive he is a bad dog, This issue has just recently started to worry me. So far I've had him hunting with at least 10 different dogs, He went to dog training classes, and he's been around small children ages 10 month to 10 years with no issues except he likes to shake to much which could scratch kids(I should have never taught him that). Maybe he was trying to protect my boat? I will definately put him on lead in situations like that again. I just didnt think about it since it was a tiny lake in the middle of nowhere with only 2 other boats on it.

Time out? I guess I don't see what that will do to hinder him from continuing to be aggressive.

I agree, he needs to understand he is not a dominant animal. He should always be leashed when in public. I love dogs, but I hate dogs that are allowed to roam at will and end up jumping on me or getting in my way. I've had dogs jump in my boat before while their owners go about their business. It is a real pet peave of mine.

Whenever I have a young dog show ANY signs of aggression, they immediatley end up on their back in a submissive posture, with me on top, hand wrapped around their muzzle pushing it towards their necks and getting in their face saying 'no'in a deep and menacing tone. When I release them, they should stand up with their tail between their legs and I immediatley command 'heel' and then calm them down. I pet them as long as they remain quiet and tell them 'good dog'. One or two of those sessions usually cures any aggression they have. I do this during feeding time also. They are not allowed to growl or snap when I put my hand in their dish or they gety the same treatment.

I also agree with Ufatz, he needs MUCH more socialization on the leash. Do not allow him to show any signs of aggression. Do not kick or hit him. You may cause him to react with a bite. You need to bite this in the butt asap or you will have big time problems in the near future.

Good Luck!

Ken

      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
