    Default Mums Pain in the A$$ Dog GRrr

    Ok I have to winge about my mums little turd of a dog Missy!!

    She is a ****tzu x maltese and although she is mighty cute, she is might feral!!

    My mum and her other half baby this dog like its a child. She bites and growls at my kids constantly. We cant leave them in the room together alone!! She has on numerous occasions drawn blood on myself and my kids!

    She attacks ruby everytime I take her over there too!

    I know it sounds funny a Bulldog and a maltese but she has punctured ruby's lip before and over the weekend she bit her ear and made it bleed.

    Mum and her BF, specially the Bf baby her and have any excuse why she bites!!

    Oh you kids are too rough, Ruby is too over the top, oh she is tired!!

    Friggen pains in the A$$ the lot of them!!!

    Grrrr That dog does my head in!!!

    That really sucks.

    My best advice don't take Ruby there you don't want her to develop an issue with little dogs because of this.

    Sounds like a dog best avoided anyways by yourself, kids and your dog.

    I would be clearly explaining to my mother that unless the dog is put away somewhere while my children were there, I would not be visiting. A bite to the face can have serious repercussions to a child.

    Tell her she is free to see the grandchildren at your place, without her dog of course, but you will not risk your child.

    Leave Ruby at home. As stated above, you don't want her to develop problems.

    It just sucks because that was the only real place i could take Ruby, I love taking her everywhere!

    I would hate Ruby to start hating little dogs, that wouldnt be good at all!!

    I don't want to be offensive, but for anyone to put a dog before my child's safety is completely NOT OK. I totally understand the way you feel, and I would be thinking twice about taking my children, or my dog, there again. People always believe that big dogs are a problem, but I have seen lots of little dogs far more aggressive.

    You really need to put your foot down and let your mother know that what is happening is not acceptable. Stay away for a while and they might start to understand that you are seriously angry about this.

    I think people are scared by big aggressive dogs because they have more media attention and can do more damage with a bite than a smaller dog.

    In saying that nobody has an excuse for having an aggressive dog regardless of size.

    Ok these are evil suggestions but that dog needs some really basic training.

    1. I would get your kids to coat their hands (or whatever bits get nipped) in rid or vicks vapour rub. Then when the dog bites it gets a gob full of taste yuck.

    2. Train your kids to push their hand further into dog's mouth and hold until about 1 second after the dog starts trying to spit the hand out. I was dealing with a "mouthy" puppy this morning - ripping your hand away gets you bitten. Leaving it there - just gets a feel (using mouth) not a bite. Pushing, gets you spat out ie discourages the mouthing.

    3. If you must take ruby, get a crate for her to protect her from the evil sh1t zoo x.

    4. Try to train the dog what you do want it to do. Ie sit without biting. Reward any kind of desirable behaviour and avoid any reward (yelling, attention) for bad behaviour. You may need to arm your kids with rid soaked socks or something to use as shields between them and the sh1t. But if the sh1t can connect yummy treats with good behaviour and your kids that would help too.

    TBH- this is a people problem.
    I would be sorting out your boundries with you mother and the BF. Its about respect for you and the children.

    Agree. If your children are very young, all the amount of training under the sun will not help. It is your mother who needs to understand there are boundaries and that boundaries should apply to her dog. Your mother also needs to seek professional help before her dog's aggression becomes an even bigger issue (not that it isn't anyway).

    Human aggression in dogs, regardless of size is not acceptable. It is worse when no attempt is made to manage the aggression!
