i talked to my dog trainer yesterday....he's telling me that getting another dog would be a good idea to help Anabell's behavior...he said it would give her a job to do...he then said it would be even better if i got her a puppy...this way she could be a mom not just a senior pack member...anyways....what do you guys think...my wife and i are still debating

11/14

Anabell had another good training session. Not great but good. She was a little rammy at first, but using the tech. that our trainer showed us, she was easily redirected!! The rest of the class was given a B+ but Anabell was given an A!!!!!! Please continue to wish us luck!!!

Have you tried to run her tired before training starts? Get some energy out of her? Makes 'em much more receptive.

We go for our normal walk before the session however I think I'm going to walk her around the neighborhood of the store aswell...if that doesn't work I guess I'll have to run

well...back to the bad news i'm afraid...saturday's class took a turn for the worse. Anabell wouldn't stop acting crazy! She kept biting her leash, and wouldn't let go. Our trainer told us to do the unthinkable...a muzzle had to be used. As soon as we put it on her, her whole attitude changed. She went from super aggressive, to super submissive...I don't like either one but at least submissive is easier to deal with. Bill told us to use it for one week whenever we go out in public...we'll see how she does next week...i'll let you know.

Hmm, and you are sure that this trainer knows what he is doing? He seems to treat the symptoms, not the cause, which is useless, only confuses the dog. Besides that, a muzzle with "that breed", you know people, they are going to react even more fearful and your dog is going to pick up on that energy..those would be my concerns.

To me, a muzzle is the beginning of the end. But that's just me and I'm not a professional...thought I put my 2 cents in .

Good luck with everything though, I hope it works!!!
