Choosing the Right Dog > Bullmastiff protection question
Kali

I'll answer this by stating a short story. Kali has become well socialized esp. if she thinks you have food. One day, while my husband and I were at work, my daughter decided to bring a new boyfriend ( a total loser) over to meet our dogs while we weren't home. (totally against our rules). Well, he was standing outside and she brought Kali outside to meet him. She became a vicious attack dog the instant she set eyes on him. My daughter could barely control her enough to get her back in the house. I told her, if Kali doesn't like him, then she needs to dump him, because Kali likes everyone. So, my answer would be, in general, dogs are very intuitive. They know when someone is up to no good. Mastiffs have an ingrained natural urge to protect. So, I would think that if someone came by that "was up to no good", then they would naturally deter them from coming in your yard. Good Luck!

Behavior & Training > Help training a dog that was rescued.

You could try the books
Don't Shoot the Dog
The Other end of the Leash
Any of Stanley Coren's Books
Those are a good start.
Also, it sounds like this dog is bored.
Someone needs to give her exercise, meaning walks and play games with her, teach her obedience.
Good Luck!

Behavior & Training > New dog woes

Marcus was used to being the only dog, so with that said it's an adjustment. If he isn't used to playing constantly, then he probably doesn't want to. You might try taking Chase out for a walk or play ball with him to take the starch out of his butt if you think he's getting on Marcus's nerves. It would also be a good idea to give Marcus an escape ( a quiet room without Chase) so he can have some quiet time if he wants it. Marcus clearly bonded with you, so he will be a little possessive of you. It will be up to you to correct him if he displays any inappropriate behavior around Chase. You might want to give Marcus some special time with you. You've only had Chase a few days, so he's probably still settling in to your routine. Jax was the same way with Koby when we first got him. Lucky for me I had Kali to be his "FUN PLAYMATE". You really can't make a dog play with another. Although, you might try playing some games, like "fine the treat, if they're not food aggressive. Hide treats in the house and have them find them. They have to interact with each other to find them. My dogs LOVE that game. Good Luck and good for you for rescuing another pup. way to go

I think I can speak for most everyone on this forum. We all second guess ourselves when we have lost a dog to illness, esp. when it comes on suddenly. Unfortunately, some dogs can be very secretive when they are sick, at least in the beginning of an illness. So, they can be sick for a while and you may not know it, because they hide the symptoms. With that said, you took her to the vet and did everything you could. So don't beat yourself up. Sometimes these things are out of our control. Sorry you lost your dog. It's never easy to lose a good friend. hughughug

Jax had one between her toes once, which I had removed, because it bothered her. She was 11 at the time and she did fine. Do you have an update?
