Dog Training on STX
About 12 years ago Eric Ericson helped me train a pup that I adopted from the Shelter who had a real wild, mean streak in her. She has grown to be a fantastic dog but very territorial and protective. My dog has not been around many dogs in her life and was attacked by 2 dogs when she was younger so she is very aggressive when she sees any dogs. My friend is going to be staying at my home and bringing her dog with her from the States and I'm hoping I can train my dog to accept this new dog in our home. Does anyone know of someone who could help me teach my dog how to get along with other dogs? Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
Your vet or vet offices, your local shelters could probably provide you with the names of dog trainers. Call them.
I know we have some good ones here in STT but that doesn't do you any good. Good Luck.
You may want to feed the 2 dogs in different locations separated by a sliding door, etc. to begin with so the chance of food aggression is minimalized. Introduce in neutral territory not in your dogs home.
