OT: Dog woes

Thu, 12-03-2009 - 4:51pm

Girls, I am a mess. My puppy bit the dog sitter who comes by everyday to let him out during the day while DH and I are at work. As in bit her hard, she went to the dr's to get it checked out. Thank God she is a total sweetheart, she is more worried about getting Boris in trouble than anything else. She also has a dog that exhibits aggressive behavior so she is understanding.

We don't know what to do! Boris bit my husband once before too, pretty hard. We've had a trainer come to the house and help us, he says he has "Resource Guarding" issues. Meaning he is protective over objects like bones or toys. The weird thing is I can stick my hand in his food bowl when he eats and he could care less. Anyway, my biggest fear is we can't correct it and we'd have to put him down. I've been crying all day thinking about it, I will be devastated if it comes to this. But we obviously couldn't feel comfortable bringing a child into the house (not that that is happening any time soon anyway).

Sorry so long, I am just so sad over this.

Kitties are SO much easier, I love my little girl kitty and realize how easy she is now that we have the dog.

Shadow started to act aggresive to other animals and people when he was about 8 months old.

Hi Kathy,

We decided to do a boarding/training program with Boris. He will stay for 2 weeks with the trainer and she will be able to try various techniques on him and work with him multiple hours a day. If all else fails the trainers feel like prozac or something like that may help. I hate having to get to any of this but I just can't give up on him.
