Help Chief Out!

Was hoping everyone could take a second and vote for Chief in this contest. He has a chance to win 2 years worth of Merrick dog food. Voting only takes a second and you can vote every 24 hours. Feel free to share to if you want. Thank You all :) http://bit.ly/1tsUmls

Re: Chief bit me!!

I just bought a gentle leader yesterday. I have had a sensation harness for Chief since I got him and its helped a lot but he still pulls. I want to walk him more so I thought we will try it. I don't really like the look because it looks like a muzzle and might make people think he's aggressive when...

Re: Chief bit me!!

NILF I would not call abusive but it can certainly be unfair and unjust to your dog. A lot of time we have the wrong expectations and understand of what our dogs truly understand. For instance we often assume since our dog sits on command in our home that they will sit on command at the dog park. T...

Re: Chief bit me!!

You might find this interesting http://www.dogstardaily.com/blogs/nilif-nasty An interesting read, but personally I think its ridiculous to say that nilf is abusive. Someone somewhere can try can find something negative towards everything out there. Whether its food we eat, drink, even talking on c...

Re: Chief bit me!!

You won't be told to apply NILIF here (except by the odd troll) - it's abusive. There is no harm in a dog having 'manners' but that is something different. Also your dog is not testing who is the boss - what was going on in his mind is what you have already been told here. :) He was upset and confu...

Re: Chief bit me!!

Well met with a trainer yesterday at my local 150 acre dog park today with Chief. She said she was very surprised on his demeanor and his confidence. She said based on what I told her happened and his past that he is a great dog and meets other dogs very well. She said she believe Chief is just tryi...

Re: Chief bit me!!

Yes... What is it in us humans that brings out this "how dare you dog growl at me?! I'll show you :twisted: " reaction? Is it some kind of innate fear? Anyway - I agree with what's been said. Not sure what you expect from the expert.... If you expect him to do some magic and teach Chief to never gr...

Positive training at work!!

Video taken today of Chief and I doing some obedience. If you don't know his story here is just a little of it. I got him from an abusive home and I could literally do no training... none. He would completely shut down, shake, and pee on himself. There was not specific trigger of when it would happe...
