I'm just curious on this point which you bring up. I myself have never owned or worked with a person reactive dog and so when I am asked for advice on how to work with them I bow out.Quote:Being a novice,perhaps I will change my mind,
Through the years I've dealt with many dogs and some had issues with other animals but never people. I've been involved somewhat with rescue (very limited fostering) for about 6-7 years and so in some areas of rescue I am quite the novice.
So to get to my first statement, I am curious. You say your rescue gave you a dog they consider aggressive and you say you are a novice. Do you mean a novice such as to reactive dogs, a novice like you have only fostered one or two dogs, or a novice as in new to rescue? Also I have no idea of your previous experience with working with dogs so as far as I know you may have had many years of this type of thing. Why would the rescue you are with turn such a dog over to a "novice" if they really believed it to be aggressive and a possible threat. Again, I'm just very curious.
Oh another point I have a question about
How would someone go about doing this?Quote: are ways such as incorporating your efforts on behalf of the dogs, to avoid personal responsibility.
