    Are you serious? Was that advice based on that single incident? Because if it was, I would change vets pronto!

    WHAT IF you read through my post history and realise I am a responsible dog owner? This is not even my dog yet and I am trying to train her for when she will become mine. WHAT IF you read my OP and realise rather than ignore the situation, I am asking for advice and help?
    Do you not think the 'what ifs' have been driving me crazy the last few days? The dog cannot escape. To escape the house she has to jump a 6ft fence or get inside through 3 doors, when she is inside everyone makes sure the doors are closed. The chances of escape are minimal and she never leaves the house without being leashed.
    Thanks for your input.

    She did not bite, she lunged at the vets face and fell short as I grabbed the lead. If I had been holding it at the end she would have. After I muzzled her she was still trying to get at the Vet.

    The vet was quite short with me after the incident. I muzzled Roxy and I then held her against the wall so the vet could check her ears & vaccinate her.
    I asked if getting her desexed would help and the vet said no. She then cleared the waiting room and ll the staff out so I could walk back to the car.

    When I came back to pay she said she has no problem euthanising a dog that can snap like that.

    Ultimately Roxy has aggression issues. I will get my partner to call K9 Pro. I am not in denial about it. She does need help.
    She is uncontrollable around other dogs and shows aggression to strangers Unless we can get them fixed I don't know what we are going to do. I worry that if the Vet realises we are going to keep her she will report her...
    I would never put anyone else at risk because of her. Hence why even if she isn't declared a dangerous dog I would still treat her like one which is why I wanted to know about the dog enclosures. If I was not home I'd want to know she would not escape.
    We are looking at buying a house so we would try and find something to suit her needs.

    (@ Realist) You have 3 posts on this forum & not one is constructive and you have not even mentioned a single thing about you or your dogs or experiences, so your opinion to me is irrelevant compared to members of this forum I have come to know and trust, Please leave this thread alone.

    I did not ignore their advice. If I ignored it I would not have posted a thread asking what the best options would be. I want to make the right answer not just kill a dog because I cannot be bothered to make sure it is not something we can work on.
    I know I can ask for help here when a massive decision needs to be made that I might overlook because I love this dog.

    No you CAN get more professional then a vet when it comes to dogs like this. And that is a dog behaviorist which a vet is NOT. Your vet cannot report you, christ I have worked as a vet nurse before and we got some absolutely crazy animals. It is a vet clinic and their responsibility is to provide medical care to an animal WHATEVER THE BEHAVIOR. It is THEIR responsibility to handle it properly and make sure it is muzzled, if they do not want to deal with it send it to someone who will or find a way to do it like give the owner ACE tablets before medical treatment etc. The dog has done nothing wrong and the vet should have asked staff to come in and help handle the muzzled animal and offer advice about a professional who could help the owner with the dogs behavior. Find a new vet.

    One of my dogs hates my vet with a passion despite the fact he is so kind and gentle. Absolutely will not let him touch her without causing a fuss and showing teeth. Muzzle and firm leash, he doesnt play to her tantrums and it gets done. He has never told me to euthanise her or get rid of her. Ironically the same dog adores the vet nurse at the counter and does a little dance for treats *sigh*

    Get the idea of Dangerous Dog out of your head. THere is no need to declare her that way unless she has actually caused physical harm and is declared. If you worry your dog will bite, muzzle it and see a behaviorist to help you work out how to manage her safely. That has nothing to do with a DD statement which just gets you into hot water legally and is a totally different thing to just managing a potentially aggressive dog. And as for internet advice - no one has seen your dog or her behavior. It could be something easily managed with the right knowledge and skills.

    As for desexing, it may or may not work but hormones fluctuations can never be a good thing. Before desexing I would advocate trying an injection called Covinan which prevents the bitch cycling and evens out the hormones, at least if it doesnt help the temperament or makes it worst you just wait for it to wear off.

    WTF?! That makes me so angry. Even if I heard a vet say that about someone else's dog I would never set foot in there again.

    I have friends who had aggressive dogs. Once they realised the problem, they went through great lengths to manage the problem. It is never the dog's fault. I realise that if there is no one who can care for the dog in a way that will certainly keep them out of trouble, there may not be any other option than to PTS. But if there is someone willing to make the effort to manage a dog like that, I don't see a problem at all.

    Really, that vet, grrr!

    Sorry, but a lot of vets have no idea about dog behaviour...you need to find specialist vets for that or behaviourist Trainers. And the owner is trying to get on top of this and get help

    Also Sharoo, this is one of many sites that provide secure runs.

    DogMaster Dog Runs - Heavy Duty Large Rectangular Dog Enclosures [731DD] | Dogmaster Trainers

    The only real difference I can see with a standard run and a DD run is that the DD run must be affixed to a concrete slab and it has to have a metal roof.

    Heaps of other sites that cater to the extra secureness (I guess oyud call it) of a DD

    FYI: I dont know anything about the above site and its not the one I was looking at the other day...its just the first one I found with info about DD
