Yes. And?



A lot of maybes, but nothing concrete. Maybes don't cut it when the dog is in attack mode or is agitated.

To quote the great Yoda "Size matters not". I've had Shepherds, Rottweilers, Great Danes and Dobermans and they're all the same. Aggression has to be nipped in the bud. Police dogs are trained to...

You are confusing punishment with discipline. You are attempting to turn your dog into a human. Dogs are not human and don't think like we do. They are immensely pragmatic and our language means...

The trouble with the "it's cruel" premise is that in order for the dog to not be afraid, you'd have to completely eliminate that noise. This is not possible. Dogs, similar to humans, overcome their...

Rolling her on her side, if done correctly, makes her submissive to you, not the other dogs.

Never punish a dog. Never hit a dog nor otherwise try to hurt it. You will not accomplish your goal. If a dog doesn't sit when told, you have to go make it sit. If it doesn't lie down, make it...

Thank you for loving her/him for saying that! People with little dogs have to get past this "it's my baby" line of thought. At least fixing them is easier than a Rottweiler with the same problem.
