This means you have a dominant dog and he is going to try to leave his mark on the other dog and you do not know how bad this could be.
Even though the coming dog is on a leash ,you are worried about the trouble if they come to close and you are looking how to avoid this…..
Before you know what to do your dog is pulling like crazy and his back hair are starting to rise.
Whatever you tried before to stop this ,now you are in the same situation again .You tagged the leash,tried a nother collar nothing worked.You struggle to keep them separated.
You think there is no way to stop this behavior of a dominant dog ?
Why is this that your dog behaves that bad?
Many dog owners and trainer’s seem not to understand ,that they have given the wrong message to the dog at home and in this situation ,with another dog coming along the street, it is too late to change this.
In fact, it is very simple ………….
We have to understand that Dogs are not like us humans interested in things like TV’s, fast car’s or the next holiday’s.
Dogs are about survival,protecting their pack and the property ,this is the way dogs are and especially when they are outside ,this is what they instinctiv want to do.
Think about this. Dog’s accept leader’s or follower’s ,because they are pack animals.
The leader decides what has to be done to protect his pack when in danger.
Think about this.What will happen if your dog thinks he is the leader and he see’s down the street a strange dog coming your way?
Yes, your dog will go in the other dog’s way with his head and tail up and try to make the other dog go away.
And this is where it gets dangerous.
How does this come ? Your dog was allowed to be the pack leader at your home and he thinks he has to protect his pack ,which in this case is you.
Is this not interesting ,it seems ,we have to be trained ,not our dog 🙂
This is where Doggie Dan’s training method is very useful .because he can show you how to make you the pack leader for your dog.
He does this very effective in a very kind way with his 5 Golden Rules.
Doggie Dan’s pack is taking it easy if they are with other dogs, because they know he is the pack leader.
Naturally some dogs are more dominant than others and all dogs are different ,but it does not even matter what kind of dog it is.
Here is the secret:
Its YOU who has to be the pack leader. All training tricks will work with your dog when he knows YOU are the Leader. It needs only a gentle pull on the leash and a little sign of warning .
The training methods you are using right now may be good ,but without a good basic training method, they will not bring you results.
Your dog is not listening to you ,when he see’s the other dog,because he thinks he has to protect his follower and his pack,which is YOU,
YOU need to become the pack leader ,to make it work.
Here are a few training tricks Doggie Dan gave me ,I will share with you .to get a calmer dog than before ,when another dog is coming your way. But remember, YOU have to be the pack leader first.
Food distraction: This can work really good .Use as a distraction. Give cheese or chicken not the usual tread.
Take it easy: Build trust slowly,it will not happen over night .Unless you he accepts you as pack leader.Don’t push it too fast.
Be a Master of the walk: Have control over your dog ,when another dog comes down the street ,you may need to use another collar.
Show what you want and be focused: You have to show your dog how you want him to behave and not follow what he wants.
Step in if needed: Guide you dog away and gently correct or tug ,afterwards relax immediately.
The method work with your dogs natural instinct ,this is what I like most.
One dog is usually above the other ,this is the natural instinct and can’t be taken away .
If you are the top dog for your dog ,he will not be overprotective and dominant or tense.
Here is a great video of two dogs playing dominant.
