    Why does everybody say socialize from a young age? I know plenty of pups - especially bully breeds who have been socialized at the recommended age and still come out aggressive.

    Please seek professional help for your dog. Not being able to walk it will be causing further problems, the poor thing will be suffering from little mental and physical stimulation. Perhaps try putting it in the car and looking for an off-lead fenced area that is empty so at least it can have some sort of excercise.

    There is socializing and socializing..A lot of people throw dogs together and just let things happen, that is not good socializing with some breeds and some dogs. you can do that with the gundog group and a few other groups. many people forget that you need to take the breed of dog into context too when training/socializing..So many people allow their puppies to get frights and or allow them to bully from a young age. this is where the handler /trainer should also teach what is expected....socializing should be done under control and with a knowledgeable person around for some puppies.

    I have to agree with everyone to seek help at this late a stage........I have personal experience with Craig Murray and he really helped me a lot with a Dog/people aggressive dog about five years ago......taught me lots of coping/managing techniques, which i still use with many dogs.

    My 2 yr old BC Terra is the same.....Sam was actually less socialised than her and he loves strangers and I let him off leash at the park - he loves other dogs. Meanwhile Terra just hates people/dogs (other than animals in the family) . If someone comes into the house and im nice she'll get use to them but on walks she actually bites at other dogs.

    She nipped a joggers butt as he ran past us (luckily he just "Oh!" and kept running ..... she had a go at a girl and last time nipped a puppy on the nose. Trust me I have learnt and we havnt been back till i get a muzzle.

    I reckon the muzzle is the way to go for you to - then at least they cant do any damage.

    I like these muzzles - though they'd probably still hurt a bit if the dog whacked you with it. And I do recommend training the dog to love wearing it. Not very hard. Just involves food and yes's or clicks.
