okay same problem PLEASE HELP
So I think the last time i posted on here about this issue was almost a year ago....yeah well he still has what i think is leash aggression or anxiety. He's a year an a half old now and I still don't understand what his problem is. My best friend and I both have dogs that we love to take everywhere. But i'm not able to take Koen (my dog) on walks or anything involving a leash with dogs HE KNOWS. He is completely fine when we are at the dog park off leash with his buddies. It's pretty much a fixation on the dog he knows and will do anything not to lose focus on them. He will whine and bark and bark and bark if he is not able to get to the dog. But if he does end up getting to the dog he will bite them ( i don't think he wants to hurt them) seems like he always tries to go for the neck (dominance thing?) Anyways, its such a struggle when he pulls and causes a ruckus. I've tried redirecting the behavior by distracting him with a ball, that definitely does not work. I will turn around and walk away from the dog so it's out of site, one time i waited for him to calm down for 45 min before and once he saw his buddy he started back up again. No matter what i cant snap him out of what seems like a trance. Also, me, koen and my best friend who owns his dog friend went to the arts market. My friend didn't bring her dog so it was just the three of us. Well Koen started acting towards my friend how he does with her dog. Barking, whining, jumping on her constantly. When I would walk him a little bit in front of her he would constantly look back to make sure she was there. Once she would catch up he would jump on her. So i really need help with this, if anyone has any advice ill take it! we are about to be roommates in an area thats very dog friendly where we can pretty much walk everywhere. i would love to take my dog with her dog on walks. PLEASE HELP! thanks everyone!
