    Putting Dora out before aggressive issues arise is managing the dog.

    Don't wait for her to show aggression. Keep everyone safe and remove her before the aggression surfaces..

    I have a client whose little dog does not like her 7yo niece. They wanted them to get on, but in reality it was better to put a management system in place. Oscar is now removed to the laundry when niece visits and is given a bone.

    Once a dog learns a behaviour it can become part of it's repertoire. So I could never guarantee that Oscar would not nip their niece when she got a bit excited (the child that is, this dog never gets excited). We of course did lots of training but he already displayed the behaviour and could well do it again.

    Will talk t them about it in a moment. I hope they are open to something like this, for once. Thanks again for your offer, I will be very upset if parents refuse!

    Does she like food or toys best?
    Food, definitely. I havent found any toys so far that she likes apart from a treat ball, but only when it has a tiny bit of bacon in it

    Masha, if you would like to email me - amanda.booth@sharpeirescue.com.au I will send you a training program that is all about the way you feed her. If you follow this to the t. you WILL have success, I know this from experience. However, it must be follwed EXACTLY as it is stated by ALL who feed her.

    This is something I give to all our adoptive parents as we have huge success with this program given we are rehoming dominant brred dogs who have generally had less than savery lives before coming into our care.

    I can 99.9% guarantee this will work as long as Dora is food motivated.

    Watch out Mr & Mrs Masha, the A-team are about to visit!
    You are a very good girl GAG, you too MAC!!!

    Dora isnt the most food motivated dog - not like a Pug (or so I hear)! She IS food motivated, but not as much as I'd like her to be.

    I'm excited now.
    Will this also encourage her to eat her dry food once in a while? Without me soaking it in stock or mashing it in with her can food so much that you cant tell which is which?

    It will make her race to the food bowl believing whatever is in it is the best, most delicious tasting thing she's ever eaten.

    It is exciting, it takes hard work, but it's more than worth it. 1-2 years of hard work on your part will equal 10-20 years of happiness (still training or practicing of course)!
