Hi Dave, it may be time to teach your dog control training of obedience and to not correct the aggression but give alternative command/behaviour for your dog to do. Instead correct your dog for not doing the command/behaviour and not for showing the aggression. A dog cannot do both behaviour be aggressive and do alternative behaviour/command. With…[Read more]

Excellent and so true… thank you for showing how the training should be like.
Hi Sabrina, Dogs that suffer with separation anxiety can show many different signs of destructive behaviour such as what you have mention the pacing and destroying things. Your dog spot of destruction must be the door but it also seem to be a habit problem too. Locking him in your room may be a good way to manage the problem as it prevents the beh…[Read more]
Wow, that was unreal watching the vid on Tex doing the agility course… I’ve never seen a dog weave like that through those poles. The dog just love it and so did the owner… great to see them both enjoying a fun activity together.
Hi Charlotte. I’ve had a read of the links and I can relate to what they are saying. Especially the behaviour and instincts links – same issues as my brother had with his Australian Stumpy tail cattle dog. I see you have found the prefect way to tap into your Border collie herding/chasing instinct with game of frisbee… I’ve heard this br…[Read more]
Oh, I’m not sure what happen there to my post… done a copy and hopefully this time it will go through ok.

Unfortunately this dog had no training and his prey drive was extreme. I often thought this dog would have been great on a cattle station if train in herding and was not the right type of dog for unexperienced dog owner as my brother was. Your dog charging at the Bichon may not necessarily have been prey drive though her first reaction was o…[Read more]
My brother use to own an Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle dog and it had extreme prey drive. He chase anything that move… dogs, animals, kids, riding bicycles, cars, etc. As soon as he spotted movement he was gone at 100 miles per hr and it was impossible to catch him in a surprise situation. You could never let him off the leash on walks or out…[Read more]
Hi Dave, Do you mean by “cat like” your dog as hostile relationship with other dogs and chases them? Reading about your breed of dog I understand it is a herding breed and it may have react on instinct if she wasn’t startle by the Bishon Frise dog. Also a Bishon dog could be difficult for other dogs to realise it’s a dog or to read it’s body…[Read more]
