What ever happened to tomboys, do they still exist? I digress....

(also, your new service dog pack is very nice, practical, clearly marked and efficient piece of equipment!)

I really don't think they come in anything but high pitched these days! And thank you I'm really loving it.

ILGHAUS All is good. I have no idea why the thread is here, but we are getting viewpoints from all sides on our dogs.

I just went back to opening post and this was there, "The other day at the park I allowed two little children to pet my SD..." So one of the Mods moved it here. Maybe someone who was planning on trying to rehab an aggressive dog to train as their SD will see that such a dog is not suitable.

While a dog is still in the Candidate Level (as soon as the vet OKs them to be around others to about age 12-14 months average) we recommend that they are socialized to all ages, all races, both male and female. They are socialized around a multitude of types of animals most of all dogs.

Any dog that shows any type of people or animal aggression must not be placed up to Service Dog In Training Level.

Aggressive dogs must be kept as pets managed through training and safe containment.

wolfy dog If they have bitten a child I advice to rehome them to protect the dogs and the kids. The average pet owner is not able to safely handle the two in one home.

SuperG

My last dog park ended in my dog being attacked, me screaming **** you, get your **** dog.... Owners doing absolutely nothing.... That's when I realized dog parks around here are not suitable for a dog who stays near her family, but rather for dogs looking to pick a fight. You are not alone in leaving the high road...

David Taggart Virtually, all dogs agressive to children you can put into two categories:
1. Those, who are afraid to be hurt, and agressive in order to protect thenselves and you;
2. Those, who choose children to be their prey object.
First category you can devide further into two categories:
a) dogs, who never had any close contact with kids and afraid of the unknown;
b) dogs, who had bad experience with kids.
Both types in the first category are curable. The object of fear should be associated with pleasure, children and dogs could be reconciled through a ball game first without making close contact, just kicking and throwing the ball. Try to identify the type of children your dog reacts on particularly negatively. Only after some success with different sexes and age groups you can allow kids to approach and pet prior to playing. I do not use treats, other persons shouldn't feed your dog.
The dogs who prey on children are more difficult. You cannot explain them that the girl's dress is not a decoy's sleeve. It starts as a play, and becomes serious with age. The training is the same as in Schutzhund - your recall must be reliable. Reliable recall should be your priority, through training recall you train your dog to ignore unnecessary prey object, that is children.
Sometimes the dog reaction is a mixure of two, and fear, and his wish to catch. In order to recognise true reason for reaction it would be better to muzzle the dog. Put on some muzzle which wouldn't scare the kids Pink Spiked Leather Dog Muzzle for Pitbull Boxer More Breeds M Size | eBay
