Red Zone case needs assistance. I have a mth Great Dane Male. That we bought from the Sheriff Dept. They rejected him as a search dog because he would attack the other Great Danes. When I picked him up, he was with a Rot, pug, and poodle. No problems, he was great. When I brought him home he pulled me to my beagle and started fighting with him! We got them separated and just thought, both males, both dominant. okay keep them apart. Well over a two month time, we have had another great dane pup and found that our mth. is food dominant! He will shred the other dog. Okayfine, feed separate. Well a friend brought over his FEMALE great dane. ours went from look to !! Didnt even hit sniff mode! Okay, now he is making me mad! What is out there that we can get him to stop attacking other dogs?? Assistance is needed (even Ceasar Milan).
so you got a dog that you knew was. and now youre upset that you have an dog?
No, we didnt know he was all the. No, the sheriff said only to great danes, not all animals. he was fine when we picked him up. He was even playing with the pug!
OK, so you know hes w/ other. danes, yet you still introduce other danes to him and wonder why hes ?? It sounds like he just needs to be kept separate from other dogs and a behaviorist needs to come evaluate him to give you further suggions on whether or not this can be managed.
Your right. I didnt think he would be to the pup. And as far as the female, didnt know she was coming over til they were at the door. Opened the door and he had her cornered in like 2 seconds. We got him off her and chained him up. She had never had that experience herself. Needless to say, our pup went with the beautiful that day.
Well, since he is dog. I would not get anymore dogs, and keep him away from other dogs.
Have you had him evaluated by a professional? If not, that should be your next step. Has he had any formal obedience training? Is he neutered?
Not neutered. No, they didnt fix him. And I dont even know where to look for a professional in my area. even if there was one. We dont even have a station, lol. I live in land.
I would find a vet. ASAP and get him neutered then, even if you have to travel to get to one.
Would that help? Do you think getting him fixed would calm him down some? I have had many great danes in the past and not one is like him! Even a friend who has had them all his life said he never saw a case like this. normally great danes are submissive, but this one just goes from look to. He didnt show any sign like this before we got him!
I think it would help BUT. youll still need to do some training afterwards.
It definitely wont hurt And he needs to be neutered to be 0% sure a dog like this never reproduces.
What do you mean he didnt show any signs before you got him??
They rejected him as a search dog because he would attack the other Great Danes.
It was great danes, none others. He only showed the signs to the adult great danes, no other dogs or animals. They even had rabbits and nothing! He was fine with the animals he was with and friendly, playful. nothing violent at all. The minute I got him home, he pulled me down the hill and started fighting.
So you got another great dane?
I had Doberman brothers,they fought. like crazy until I got them fixed.
Where you do live? Im in the Columbus area I can give you some.
No mans land. I actually live in Glenford, which is about an hour east of Columbus.
I love how every time someone has a. problematic dog, they say they need.
well it IS a good salad dressing but. I think it only works with retraining vegetarian dogs.
I prefer jalopeno rach myself, its sssssspicy!
An dane must be a scary thing :(. All the ones Ive encountered were big, sweet, goof balls!
It is, but when he is not with other dogs he is. a coward. You can play fetch, drinks out of the bathroom sink (funny to watch), sit, shake, laydown. but when it comes to another dog. watch out. I called the Sherrif back when the behavior started and they said he only acted like that to the danes, none other! I even saw it!! He was playing with the pug and rot.
so you have. an month old great dane you bought knowing he was dog , which he proved when you got him home by attacking your beagle.
and you got another great dane puppy that your DA dane shows food aggression to (why surprised?).
me thinks you probably didnt introduce him to your beagle correctly. and i also think you shouldnt have brought in yet anotother dog to the mix.
have you done any kind of obedience training or anything with him?
She needs advice not reprimand. She knows she made a few mistakes (were human) but is now asking for help. Whats so wrong w/ that?
I didnt reprimand her. i was clarifying her situation and asking some quions.
whats wrong with that?
She didnt ask for that Shes asking for help. Not judgement.
Its impossible to give advice or help. without some clarification and knowing if the dog has ever had any kind of training.
When you adopt a dog. sometimes you never kow if its had training or not. The dog obviously needs training, yes.
It probably has something to Lakeville do w/ her personality too since the dog was fine until she brought him home and he dominated her immediately.
Thanks, friendli post I have recieved.
I already had the puphe was inside the house. and the mth didnt show any aggression to him until it came to feeding time. That is when that was noticed. He is fine with the pup, indoors and outsideit was only when feeding time was happening. And as far as my Risco beagle. he is years old, my doggie and we just keep them separated.
ok. some advice. separate the pup and the dane when feeding.
get the dane in some serious one on one training. even if you have to drive to do it.
make sure that the dane is not left alone with either of your other dogs when you are not there.
make sure he gets neutered.
Heres a link for you to find some help In your area.
do you really want to keep a dog that would. try to another of your dogs? Could you accept that unnecessary death?
You should either get rid of your act of donation form louisiana other dogs, for their own safety, or find a one-dog experienced home for this vicious dog. Hes attacking without provocation and is a catastrophe in the making.
The other choice is to euthanize him and rescue another dog in his place: one which wont need constant supervision to keep from mauling and/or other dogs. He obviously doesnt respect the pack mentality or doesnt accept you as the leader.
There are just too many other dogs out there who will fit perfectly into your home who need that home. Frankly, the SO should never have let this dog go with his issues. Unless you are highly sed/trained in dealing with known dogs, you should not have exposed yourself or your dogs to this one.
The fact that he is irrational in his attacks is the scari part to me. Do you have ? If so, do NOT let them have friends over while this dog is able to get to them. The liability is huge since his aggression is well documented.
my experience. sorry, kinda long. I have a pit mix who was extremely DA when I got her. (rescue said she was good with dogs).
First thing I did was teach her to walk on a leash right next to me. I use a slip lead, I have also had success with head collars/gentle leaders. We walk at least 5-2 hours every day dog is not allowed to walk in front of me, sniff the ground, or focus on anything other than walking with me. I also make her a backpack, it is not so much the weight of it, but the focus it gives her.
After she was leash trained I started working with her with other dogs. I always introduced her to another dog on a walk. I had already worked on her focus on the walk, so she knew that she wasnt allowed to look at the dog, sniff the dog, or do anything other than walk with me. That way we could get the dogs closer and closer together without issue. At the end of the walk, I would allow the other dog to sniff mine if she was submissive to the other dog, she was allowed to sniff back, if she was not submissive, I would walk her some more.
In the house, I made her lay down on her side with her head on the floor while the other dogs did the same. We started with just a few minutes at a time, but moved on to longer periods of time. When she stopped reacting to the other dogs, I allowed them to get up and walk around the room while my dog was still on the floor. We did that EVERY DAY for probably a month (I moved in with other dogs, so I was forced to work it out) Any time I wasnt home, my dog was locked in the basement (open basement, where my bedroom is).
She is no longer DA, loves to play with other dogs especially little ones, and also learned very quickly that I the alpha female.
God forbid. you might consider learning to train a dog before wanting some quick fix from a television commercial pseudo-trainer! hahaha This is a dog that was removed from its litter before it was 9 weeks old it never learned to interact appropriately with its own species and the aggression you see is all fear-based because he isnt aware if the others dogs are friend or foe and he falls back to defensiveness to preclude the possibility that he feels is very real that they are foe and will attack him. He cannot hear them as he doesnt understand a dogs primary language, body.
You need to find a good motivational training class and learn to read and interact with the dog and teach him to listen to you even while he is around other dogs he will never be perfect but he can be trained to trust your judgment and that you will prevent the other dogs from confronting him.
You were told he was this way and you got him without having a clue how to handle it and then allowed him to attack other dogs. You need to be responsible for the dog you now own. It isnt a red zone anything what an asinine description but what does one expect from some commercially motivated television idiot he is a poorly bred, poorly socialized and poorly trained dog your responsibility is to learn to deal with it appropriately and not put it off on some silly tv personality.
