My dog is fine at the dog run, unless another dog gets near his ball and then he tries to attack them.Is there anything that can be done about this? Or do I simply need to keep him away. Any advice would be helpful.
If you love animals this quite honestly is a cause you have to support. Animal populations are controlled more by spay and neutering than by euthanasia and this is "a proven fact". You should support groups who offer low cost spay and neutering and if you know an animal in the building or on the street, who isn't fixed, try and help them get it done.
I've always heard that you should never play tug of war with aggressive dogs. But recently I've heard of some people who have taken the opposite approach. They play tug of war with an aggressive dog before they leave the apartment and this, they say, has calmed or tired that biting instinct in their dog. This coupled with lots of excersise and training seems to be a good route for some people. Any comments?
