A 3rd way to control this kind of aggression is with the long down

A 3rd way to control this kind of aggression is with the Long Down. We cannot emphasise enough the significance of this exercise.

It is a benign exercise and creates quite obviously who’s in control in a nonpunitive way. For dogs that express any sort of assertive behavior, return to this exercise and do a 30-minute Down, last thing at night, 2 or 3 times every week. It bolsters in your dog’s mind that you are in control.

The Long Down and the tug-of-war game are straightforward solutions for the good dog that gets too forceful.

Employ a muzzle : If your present position has reached the point at which you are fearful of your dog, he makes an attempt to bite you, or you cannot get him into the Down position, employ a muzzle. You can also require professional help.

When you are scared or concerned about what your dog may do if he encounters another dog or person, your feelings go straight down the leash, which may cause your dog to react in an assertive demeanour.

In a way, your troubles become a self-fulfilling prediction. You can disentangle this quandary with the utilization of a muzzle. A muzzle permits you to go out in public with your dog with no need to stress about him. A unusual thing happens to a dog while wearing a muzzle.

After you have taken away his option to bite, he does not even try. It is nearly as if he is relieved the call has been taken away from him. Even better, it lets you relax.

On the other hand, though your dog acts differently, so will folk you run into. A muzzle should be a final resort and isn’t a replacement for looking for pro help.

Employing a muzzle is a straightforward solution to a complicated problem. It takes the choice about whether to bite away from your dog and gives you confidence.

Training to a muzzle should be done slowly and softly because, initially, many dogs panic from having something around their faces. But with diligence, common-sense, and some compassion for the dog, you can teach him quite simply to accept it.

Here’s what you want to do :

one. Put the muzzle on your dog for a couple of minutes, and then take it off again.

Two. Give him a treat, and let him know what a good boy he is.

Repeat Steps one and two over the course of a few days, steadily enlarging the period of time your dog wears the muzzle. Four. When he is cosy wearing the muzzle at home, you may use it when you take him out in public.

In some Western european towns, ordinances have been passed that need certain breeds to wear muzzles in public. We have seen many of those dogs happily accompanying their owners on walks. They were well behaved and looked to be quite ok with their muzzles.

Many owners are disinclined to employ a muzzle due to the understood discredit attached to it. You’ve got to make a choice – stigma or assurance. Something else to consider : Suspect that your dog essentially bites somebody.

When you have such a straightforward solution, why take the chance?
