Ok - let's pretend the OP didn't throw a George Foreman punch that knocked out his dog. Let's pretend that the OP is having a hard time explaining what happened due to his broken English.

Could your dog sense that under the influeance of alchol you are no longer considered the leader of the pack? Do you find that your dog no longer behaves in his normal 'friendly' way only when you are drunk? Could there be a chance that YOU precieve your dog being aggressive incorrectly when you are drunk? Perhaps your dog thought that when you pointed to his bowl, you were beginning a game of wrestle mania and he responded in the like? How bad was the bite?

My advice? Give the dog to a reputable rescue group as soon as possible, then go to AA. Coming home drunk (and seemingly proud of it), yelling at the dog, punching the dog in the face, and not ashamed to admit any of it? You are one of the reasons that animal cruelty divisions exist.

There are two kinds of dogs: Dogs who are German Shepherds, and dogs who WISH they were German Shepherds....

It seems your story has changed from your first post. I agree with Jax08.... rehome your dog. That way you can be drunk and pass out... and not have to be aggressive to an animal who probably is not understanding your drunken behavior. Dogs need stability they should not be waiting for someone to come home and throw some food his way hours after it usually eats.

I'd say make a choice. Either 1. Sober up and stop getting drunk or 2. continue being a drunk and find the dog a new home!

Ok, I'm going to concentrate on the actual problem here.

Your dog IS food protective.

Think of it this way. I hand you $1 and then try to take it away from you. How much of a fight are you going to put up for a buck?

But what if I hand you $1000 and then try to take it away? I'm guessing you are going to be more reactive when I try to take it away.

Your dog is reacting to the VALUE of the food item they have. Kibble = $1. Meat = $1000.

What you need to do is teach him that when he has meat he doesn't need to worry about protecting it from you.

Here's what you do. Put a couple pieces of meat in a bowl for the dog and keep a couple pieces in your hand. Place the bowl on the floor, walk away and let the dog start eating. Calmly approach the bowl (don't get close enough to cause a reaction in the dog) and toss one of the pieces of meat you are holding into the bowl. Repeat this several times.

This is teaching the dog that when you approach the bowl while he's eating his meat GOOD things happen (he gets MORE meat).

what the? are you guys saying this rehoming and bunch of other B.S seriously ? you're making me regret coming here for advice.
doesn't a human has the right to go home drunk and own a german shepherd at the same time ? i don't know whats the big deal. the dog has been mine for about 5months , i got drunk all the weekend in those 5months and friends came to my home and got drunk with me, the dog always played with us and had fun, he never bitten anybody.
now because i come one day home drunk like that other days and my dog bites me because i point at his **** food bowl im an alcoholic wich should rehome his dog? either you guys are idiots or you guys live somewere were people are pussies and are scared of someone who drinks a bottle of vodka and owns a german shepherd. its of guys like me that animal cruelty exists? because i hitted my dog with a light punch for being aggressive and bitting me for nothing once in the 6months i own him and im coming for advice not to do it again because i didnt like the expirience? **** you should visit my coutnry then most of the people here teach there dogs to obey with hits and shotus and they never get bitten and the dogs are scared and obey by the one look from their owner.

i came here to know from the supose experts/expirienced guys to know how why one of a sudden my dog bites me, just because i pointed at his food bowl with my finger and told him to go eat. i don't want to hear to rehome my dog and stupid stuff like that.
now if you have an explanation/ can help me with this do it. if not tell me and i will leave no problem i'll try to find help somewere else. ****.

Well from that, I think you should go elsewhere to get what you want to here, but in this country, we dont hit our dogs, sober or drunk
