Re: 3.5 year old Chow, aggressive to strangers.

Thanks for everyones help, I'll definitely keep in mind. I'll try to see if I can find a trainer can specifically work with him so that he knows that other people are not scary. Until then I'll try to work more on the basic commands and with new people, I'll tell them to play rock (don't look don't ...

Re: 3.5 year old Chow, aggressive to strangers.

I was using positive reinforcement training with the trainer I was using before , he was very good. My reluctance and uncertainty is with introducing him to people, even with leash is that he sometimes just snaps suddenly un provoked, even when introducing him to my friend with treats, he still ende...

Re: 3.5 year old Chow, aggressive to strangers.

What would you suggest for corrective behaviour? I thought pinning would be asserting the alpha role on him. Sometimes when its too late to prevent the action of my dog what would you do to correct the behaviour? My trainer suggested having a penny can that makes a lot of noise, but sometimes those ...

3.5 year old Chow, aggressive to strangers.

Hi everyone I have a 3.5 year old black/blue chow that I rescued a while back. My main issue with him is getting him socialized with people, he has bitten a few people with no serious injury thank god. Any aggressive behaviour I immediately act on it and pin him until he stops resisting. I was doing...

Re: Beware of what Anesthetic your Vet gives your dog.

UPDATE: We spoke with the shelter and we are adopting this boy, once we pass home inspection. The pups are being spayed / neutered right now, unfortunately I don't believe they should this early but what can you do. Hopefully feeding a good raw diet and regular exercise will overlook the possible co...

Re: Beware of what Anesthetic your Vet gives your dog.

I don't think any animal should be nutered before they are at least a year old, and if you have not female animals in your yard and the yard is propley fenced off from your neighbours then he should be allright. Have you ever owned a chow before, or is this a x chow you are getting, more important ...

Re: Beware of what Anesthetic your Vet gives your dog.

We are adopting a Chow Pup from a rescue, and they said they would neuter him before adoption but we read that neutering or spaying a dog too early before they have reached full growth can result in various health concerns. We may try to negotiate to neuter him once he is full grown and of course pr...
