13. Re: Out of the Blue Apr 7, 2010, 20:46 Rigs
 
I've had a few big dogs over the years and they knew who the boss was. If they were attacked, they'd take care of business in short-order, but otherwise if they even dreamed of starting some shit they knew they'd have to wake up and apologize.

I'd hate to be your kid, Cutter.

... it's amazing to see - with the right training - how these "out of control" dogs can easily be brought into line.

Indeed. The only problem we have with our dogs is not aggression, but stupidity. We have a 4yr German Shepard, a 6yr old Pomeranian, and an all brown 13yr old Poodle/Lapso mix named Snickers. They're all a royal pain in their own ways. The Pom thinks he's god's gift and spoiled to the max (must be an inferior complex), the German Shepard is just plain naive (I'm sorry, she's a beautiful dog, but she doesn't move for cars and doesn't listen to the screaming to get the hell out of the way even though you can tell she hears you just fine) and the oldest is getting very senile and will bark at everything and anything. That's my biggest complaint about all of them though, is th incessant barking! Day and night, constant. A car goes up the road - bark bark bark. Someone across the street goes to get their mail or has a visitor - bark bark bark. One thinks they hear something outside, they bark once and then the other two start in immediately - bark bark bark. The worst is when someone visits. Holy Crap! It sounds like a freakin' kennel. I've been staying with my parents for a few years to help them out and after my father passed away in October, it's looking like I'll be here for a while longer helping my mother. But I swear I'll go insane before my departure if we don't find something to stop them from barking all the time! It's really gotten ridiculous to the extreme...

As for your problem, Blue, I think those racing muzzles look like your answer...We tried that with ours but we'd have to keep them on them all the time and really, they're not aggressive in a negative sense, just over-reactive and hyper and mouthy...
