glowingtoadfly At a year and two months old, he is still very much a puppy. Hopefully we can get some answers.

Yep there aren't. I know someone that had a biter and I looked for trainers for her and they all say the same thing. No guarantees.

Actually they can't guarantee it for many reasons. First of all, it's an animal. Never guarantees about anything there. And second, they can't make sure that the owners will follow everything to the letter. A dog will bite in one home and won't in another (this isn't about you, just a general)

glowingtoadfly I know that the vet behaviorist will probably tell us to stop using a prong with Grim. I don't know what I will do. If she tells me to, he will probably go back to a no pull harness. Vet behaviorists are trained very well at what they do.

I had to sign a form releasing the vet behaviorist from any indemnity should the training for aggression not work.
I know I'm pretty cynical, but does that inspire confidence in you?

Steve Strom I don't know Emily, but that doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in me. I'm an "Expert". "But don't blame me."

Also, I have always been open to training so I don't see where the idea came out that I turned down training that was offered? I'd be glad to take you up on that offer of help. PM me if you are in town!
I'm in the process of planning a trip or two to the area in the next month or two. I'll let you know when I'm going to be there.

You don't like my tone?

Gee, I'm sorry. I don't like dogs being put in awful circumstances where they face euthanasia due to improper management or training, especially when training in your area has been offered and you've declined in the past.

I just hope you're learning from this. I'm in the Milwaukee area occasionally. Let me know if you'd like to get together to work on his behavior. I'd be happy to help if it meant keeping him alive.
