So the only difference is that one is a puppy? It's only a puppy mentally but a 6 month Shepherd is as big or bigger than roughly 50 of dog breeds.

So if a dog bites a stranger you can punch it but if it bites the owner you just click and treat? What if that pup realizes it can do whatever it wants and biting it's owner gets the dog it's way and suddenly he tries the same thing on a kid. Do you still click and treat the "puppy"?

When my mom's pit bull and lab got into a fight, her pit had a hold of the lab by the throat. I was punching her in the head and face as hard as I could. I made her nose bleed. She didn't budge.
Having broken up a few pit fights I have found the hose works best. They do not like water.

I use to like projects.
Armchair quarterbacking is what you do if you comment on a situation you have never dealt with.

I got a comment on break sticks deleted for some reason I think it's a dirty word on the forum.

If I had a prong on that dog I'd have used it to prong him off his feet and slam him off the side of a tree or parked car or the ground or possibly all three.

How abusive , its owners like you that create dogs like that. Being all mean and scary. The dog was probably afraid and bit the child so he could relieve his stress. I hope you feel like a big man with your prong collars, break sticks and SHOCK collars!

Ugh.. scrambling at first but they did succeed. Immobilizing the dog was a good idea. You want to prevent shaking and pulling that ends in tearing but it looked like the dog had a hold of the clothing only. The strike to the face it seems is why it released. Although I don't think punching/striking the face of a dog is a very effective corrective technique, I'm glad it worked out in this case. It doesn't always.

This is why I carry a break stick on walks :/ call me abusive but when I get a dog to let go with it I bet some would change their mind about them.

That was awful! If that was my dog, I'd have given the term "alpha roll" a whole new meaning. Seriously, that's unbelievable!!! Crap, when I said I had a GSD that didn't like kids, I sure hope nobody thought that's the kind of dog I was walking around in public with!

Ugh. When you see a small child being drug around helpless like that by a predator animal, very visceral reaction and no sympathy for the dog or it's owners.

Looks like a beauceron........

Someone did hit the dog, eventually....

Bailiff there have been discussions about breaking up pitt fights here in the past where break sticks were mentioned without issues

Question for our trainers on board here, assuming the dog has not been mistreated by children in the past, what are the reasons behind some dogs reacting aggressively to children?
