Re: [lizball] Help! My dog is going crazy!

Hi ...

Try checking this thread ... a outline of the method for reconditioning and training a dog is described ... modify it to suit your situation re: food possessive dog ...

www.puppy.com.my/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?do=post_view_flat;post=80966;page=2;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;mh=25;

The method outline basically teaches the owner now to use treats and praise to help dogs overcome their fears and to accept new situations, dogs and people ...

I would not smack the dog ... please remember that an 8month old shepherd is almost full grown & any kind of a bite will be painful, to say the least ... People get away with smacking puppies, but I certainly wouldn't try it with a anxious and tense adult dog.

A dog that is food possessive, is already anxious and tense, and if you hit the dog, that may be all it takes to make your dog snap back ...

I would suggest that you first get your dog used to (a) your being close when feeding, and then slowly to your (b) handling his food when feeding ... This has to be done gradually ... without otherwise increasing anxiety & tension in the dog.

And you will also need to sort out your dog's reaction to your fiancee, if you wish for a happy household.

Suggest you try these threads:

Since you already have access to a trainer, you might like to approach your trainer for advice as soon as possible.

A good trainer will be able to provide you with immediate, hands-on advice that will be much more effective than what we can achieve over an internet forum. Also consider getting a good dog training manual.

Cheers Smile
