I hope everything turns out alright as we know how you feel. My old sheltie Audie was shot 7 times in the side when he wandered away when visiting relatives. I noticed some purple spots on his side when we found him but no one thought it was anything important. A few months later we took him in for his annual vet check and the vet asked us when he was shot. Turns out some punks must have shot him 7 times in the side and the bullets were still in there. The vet set they didn't need to be removed and it was always sad feeling along his side and seeing the bullets. It's just awful what people will do to a sweet little, sheltie that wouldn't hurt a soul. cry

Behavior & Training > Is my puppy too aggressive or is this fairly "normal."

It's weird she gets very upset over blankets. If I sit down next to her with a blanket she just wants to get away from me. If SHE has a blanket she won't give it up and gets very aggressive over it. What could be causing this and how do I deal with it?

My first sheltie was named Audie Murphy after the famous actor (I have know idea why though! My parents never even watched his movies...) then when we bought another sheltie we just had to name him Audie Junior. My new corgi pup was first named Gidget (by the breeder) but it sounded too much like a poodle. Winnie just sounded cute but too be truthful she has a new name every week. laugh out loud This week it's "Put Put"

My puppy has a tendency to show acts of aggression and I was wondering if she was very aggressive or what you would normally expect in a dog that has aggressive tendencies. She growls ferociously over a bone or objects that she wants to guard and I have tried NIFL and have read "Mine!" but neither of these have seen marked improvement and its getting to the point that I'm almost afraid to come near her when she has a bone. I now just never give her a bone but my mom is a pushover and thinks I being cruel because I won't give a dog a bone. She gives Winnie one when I'm not looking and if you go near her she gets crazy. She'll also snap at you if you lean over to pet her or pet her butt. I've tried making this a positive experience for her but so far no results. Just a few minutes ago I was petting her for a command (flipping over on her back) when she started to show me her teeth. I looked away and got up to leave the room when she lunged at me repeatedly while snapping in the air and growling. I've seen her act aggressive but never to such an extent. We're getting her fixed next week but I don't know how much that would help, if any. What can I do to fix this behavior and how should I act in these situations? I've worked with some behaviorists but not in the home so they don't get to witness her real behavior. Actually I did have one come to the home but she just told me to let myself be bitten to show I wasn't afraid and shove Winnie around. Not going to happen! Any help would be much appreciated as I'm at my wits end! cry

Thanks this is so helpful! I just wish us humans would learn to take care about ourselves with our food choices like we do our dogs. Do you think all those chemicals in our food is good for us if it is bad for our dogs? Anyway I sure hope I can find the right food for my pups! Had some tummy problems lately... confused

Over the past 3 weeks and both of them have been. If I decide to switch to a different food what would you recommend?
