Just a little more background on Koal
I *verbally* corrected Koal the first week I had him as he was jumping on jager's back and biting the nape of his neck, while jäger showed his teeth without correcting him. Koal was going too far so I stood up and walked over and told him no! He looked, hackled, and growled at ME. I jumped between the dogs and pushed Koal back to make some space between him and jäger and I so he understood that the path he was going on was him against our pack. He then lunges and snapped at ME missing only because I'm quite used to dodging dog bites from helper work. My response was an immediate roll on his back, not so much for the roll aspect but for him to understand any sort of behavior like that at me will get a much stronger response from me, and he needs to understand this is an inappropriate and ineffective way to deal with the human feeding and handling you, and finally at this point he made it clear he was gonna make a go of it and I had to restrain him before Katya came over and ended his life (Katya ironically, acts as jager's enforcer lol). So, this ended in me "dead fishing" Koal... Laying on top pinning his head down to keep clear of the gnashing teeth, while keeping my three at bay who were standing by, and letting Koal wear himself out. He snapped at me once since then... When I was asking for a sit, with no correction. He snapped, then dropped, rolled and submitted faster than I had any time to react. To me this was an artifact of his old behavior that leaked out that he realized was wrong and immediately apologized for. Now he has trust that I will reward good and punish bad in equal measure to the gravity of what he did. He is now growing to trust jäger in that way.
