Re: defiant stage

I have to leave for work in a minute, but what i would do is train him to love being brushed. The idea is never to let them get to the point where they have to growl, if you punish him for growling you're going to stop his "warning system" and he'll stop growling but next time he may skip ...

Oh Carolyn, I'm so sorry to hear your news. Hang in there, you'll be in our thoughts. I cannot imagine how difficult it must have been to rehome Millie and Mabel, is there anyway that you could have someone temporarily hold on to your gang and then you could get them back when you relocate?

Did you get to read my first post in this thread? We may have cross-posted and you might not have seen my suggestions about the behaviorist (it's right after Fillyok's post). That's why I cautioned against alpha rolling, it's not a form of discipline that is accdepted among todays prominent trainers...

Re: Help. I think I need to get rid of my Chow.

Oh yeah, and biting is context specific, you do not have to worry that since she bit you after you rolled her, she will now hurt any other members of your family or other people randomly. They don't think like that, they only defend when they have too. Again, it's too costly otherwise.

If you feel you do need a new home for your chow please follow Jonathan's advice and post in the chows needing a home section, the members will make sure you find a safe home for Zoe. In the meantime, please, pleasee, please stop "alpha rolling" her. It is an outdated, dangerous technique....
