Maybe it's just me, but I don't see this as being risky at all. It's telling the dogs, in no uncertain terms, what's expected of them. How much better does it get, lol? Black and white, how simple!...

Hey Emily, I'm sorry to hear about Grim's latest adventure. I definitely wouldn't be muzzling him 24/7 just because of this, but I'd be all over whatever door access he has right now, and probably...

Removing him is good, but I'd do it a little differently. I'd start teaching him not to harass the cats at all. Waiting until he's already focusing on them, and barking, is too late IMO. I used to...

I have the opposite feelings, lol. I like using a sturdy leather leash, because in a pinch it can double as a strap - I know I wouldn't feel as confident swinging my light nylon leash, and it...

Maybe the micro prong is too lightweight? I have a large, heavy prong collar - and my thick leather leash with the brass clip doesn't move it at all.

I don't like this video, although I can see why some other people would. My biggest issue is that before the training, at the beginning of the video, it looks like the dog is on a prong/extendaleash,...

I had a shih tzu experience myself this week, at a family bbq. Same exact experience! The tiny dog was on an extendaleash, while my GSD and another GR were free. The big dogs were ignoring the tiny...

When I put the prong on my dog, there is some pressure - otherwise I'd have it way loose and it would be sized to the widest part of his neck. So since it's placed higher than that, then there will...

Wow, I thought the first video was stupid...crap, as long as the dog is small, I guess anything goes, right? Please Dani, don't find another one featuring a GSD with a baby, or my mind will explode!

When I introduced my bigger puppy to my neighbor's baby puppy, mine was always leashed. I wouldn't expect him not to overwhelm or accidentally injure such a young puppy, so leashing him prevented...

I don't think it's out of line to call them - I called the police to ask why they were on my property, while I was at work, after my neighbor told me about it. Why not?

I know it's impossible, but it would be nice to have a network of trainers that people could be referred to. I hate the thought of someone who's over their head with their GSD going to some clueless...

I think it's weird that more people don't use the "ignore" function. If someone is a pain IRL, you'd avoid them - so why not avoid who you don't like on the board as well? I don't get it, although I...

On the other hand, maybe OP's pup won't be dog aggressive because in both cases OP shoved the attacking dog off? JMO, but our dogs know when we have their backs.

I have 2 leather muzzles. One is an open-faced agitation muzzle, so the dog is still able to bite. The other is a full basket, so no biting with that one on. Good muzzles are expensive! I got the 1st...
