Default Bad Mannered Dog

Hi All What a walk we had this afternoon we met a Lancashire Blue Heeler ( who we have seen before) Boy it needs some training!! It's 1 yr old and tries to dominate other dogs that have just been spayed ( well Nipper has been spayed well over 2 years ago!) Nipper kept sitting down to show the other dog not interested any way it got very rough And I have never seen Nipper so agitated ears right back and growl loads of times which is good that she is warning the other ill mannered dog to back off which it didn't So I stepped in and gave the dog in no uncertain terms with a loud 'Enough' that stopped him the owner was over 50 yards away then he started again on Nipper and the woman said oh he's not trying to mount Nipper (Yeah right) he is only domianting and playing ( her words and not mine) I said to her you really need to get some help for your dog and invited her to join this forum And it was off leash too. It was casterated before it's first birthday. Was this too early to have him done? And it sounds like this has made him worst. I hope see she sense before her little dog gets bit and bitten badly. Nipper was a star for warning this bad mannered dog but I could just stand there and do nothing! So what has caused this dog to act like this other than lack of proper training. Silly woman. ATB

I see this a lot at my dog park from a certain few and from more dominant dogs (Male and female alike). Now I cannot say for certainty since most of the time I do not see these dogs as pups, or if I do see them as pups I don't see them as adults. (Usually)

But I tend to see the dogs who behave like this didn't get told no as a puppy (or young adult) And need to learn proper dog social skills. It can be helped by getting the dog in with older dogs, like Nipper there. To really lay down the law as to what's appropriate. On the other hand, the handler always has to firm in what he or she allows. When I bring my dog into work with me, He can do anything and everything he wants. Basically beause when I bring him, it's to get my young pups exposed to a dog who does not want to play. They need to learn, (Or keep) Their distance making cue education. Basically teaching them awareness of themselves when they're playing around my Dog, and how they play with each other. I've seen whole puppy wrestle piles come to a stop because they get too close to Dyno. But at the same time I know if Dyno is extra grumpy old man I'll look at him and tell him to let the pups play and he'll lay down and just supervise. He's what I like to call a policing dog. He never lets anyone get picked on, or get out of hand.

We get this too at times with certain dogs, I get quite stressed by it as Oscar doesn't tolerate it any more and will sort the dog out if I can't get it away. I've had too many walks trying to haul Oscar away by his collar cos he's about to kick off, he's growling and trying to lunge, with a rude dog STILL trying to climb on him/lick his bits etc and the owner totally oblivious even though i'm begging them to remove their dog.

If Oscar ever does see them off himself, their faces are usually pretty priceless - every other dog is a problem but not their little darling, eh?

One woman accused Oscar of being 'aggressive' after he pinned her beagle that had followed us around, STOLEN Oscar's toy then snapped at him when he approached it. I got the toy back, we walked off, it followed us and then tried to hump Oscar, so he went mad (but didn't actually hurt it). I was furious with her, but the beagle now avoids us at least!

This is why I step Mel I thought enough is enough I never want Nipper to even nip another dog growl yes! Bite no I haven't raised her that way Iam hoping that the woman now sees sense she did say I want him to stop this If we met again Nipper will be on leash She seemed unaware and just lets her dog run up to any dog it sees with out even trying to call him back Iam going to get some small bits off paper with Df.net on the and hand them out to people that seem to be clueless on getting their dogs socialised. Oh she really annoyed me when she said
he only wants to play i thought if that's play I would hate to see what isn't regarded as play. Iam really proud of Nipper for not biting this bad mannered dog! She such a sweet girl ATB

It's sad, but one day her dog is going to do that to another dog who won't take it kindly.
Then of course, the other dog will be blamed for biting the instigator. Ugh, I wish people would just train their dogs before bringing them out in public off leash!

It is but sometimes it takes drastic outcomes to 'see' sense! I hope it doesn't come to this But I will be giving a wide berth when I see that dog again, Nipper isn't going to go through that again! ATB
