Dog friendly

Post by Pig2013 on Sun Sep 27 2015, 05:45

Our staffy gets really aggressive when she see's another dog and trys to attack. She's perfect with our maltese shitzu and our family dog. Is there any tips we can train her to either play or ignore passing dogs ??

How old is your dog? If it's a pup, it's highly unlikely to be true aggression (which is in fact rare even in older dogs, it's more commonl fear aggression). Give us a bit of background and it'll be easier to give you advice.

Nothing really. Well apart from constantly jumping up what she didn't do before

Yeh she has been trying to. We think that's what she is doing with the other dogs, but other owners don't seam to impressed with her

Hmm with both dogs it could be a teenage thing. My Flo is friendly with dogs she knows but defensive against those she doesn't. If we walk in a highly dog populated area we ensure that we have a distraction so that she isn't worried about the other dogs.

I would advise socialising as much as possible whilst on the lead especially whilst young so that they gain enough confidence around other dogs that they don't feel the need to be defensive.

The other thing I would look out for is, is it dominance/aggressive or come play with me. Both can appear similar but are obviously entirely different and this is where you should watch the dogs body language.

Remember, Staffies do play rough but if your at all unsure always lead the dog and control the encounter.
