He's stressed and not understanding what's going on so he's defaulting to bordeaux behavior. I would be keeping him more controlled, on leash with you a lot more and in a crate too so he's mechanically shown what to do. It's not uncommon in a lot of dogs that have just had a major upheaval and are not that confident but to let a dog like that free roam will get you bitten. Contain and control, he's a large guarding breed that needs firm boundaries and routine.We have a definate behaviour pattern that im watching.
He does not recognise me, or my daughter yet, if we change our hair from up to down. He barks his intruder alarm single bark. The Im here.
Then he'll give full eye contact, and growl at me. I talk to him and he realises its me and we get silly brian again. Vision?
The evenings this gets worse. Fading light, he's tired?
Again, he should not be loose in the house to crash about, you're creating a bad habit in a very powerful animal.Cardboard has just been applied, its late, ive just got in from work, and he's crashing around the place looking for door exits.
Many Bordeaux's will not, mine learned it over time from the Malinois. They do copy a lot so give him time, he's still trying to deal with a move.He doesnt know what a toy is and is not interested in the copious amounts of them my dogs wont play with.
He wont play tug of war. That seems odd to me. And i hope a settling in thing.
Step in and control everyone. He's still fresh and a pup, n a few months a male bordeaux will not tolerate being swatted, growled at and frightened.He's not keen really on Sherlock. Because Sherlock is a little sod, for everyone cept nan/me. Who cant put up with it.
Sherlock can be seen, giving his greasy looks, mounting him, full on face to face in alignment, in his space, wants to play but asking really badly. But he's out of control and it could easily get Sherlock trying brian on for size.
Well, he got punched. Brian, punches dogs? Ive never seen this before. He lifted his front leg up, and side swiped him off his feet with a punch across the chops.
Sherlock hid under the table for 10 seconds. Then went back for more, this time, tail wagging. He got a warning snarl. And backed off then.
But it's coming. And something i will watch for.
Chiropractor is the best, there is Potter Chiropractic in Hoppers Crossing, he is a human one but he does dogs on weekends, lovely man helped me a lot with my boy. Same thing, lameness, no swelling turned out to be his back and throwing the weight.He's a bit lame today after his walk. Nowt major, could of tripped in a ditch? Not painful to touch him. Has full mobility of joints. No swelling.
