Choosing the Right Dog > Bullmastiff protection question

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!

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!

What kind of food are you feeding besides the boiled chicken/"white" rice? Is it skinless breast? She may have an intolerance to something she's eating. You said you changed her food. From what to what? Did the vet put her on any probiotics? Kali went through a similar thing that took years to figure out. It turned out she has mal-absorbtion/intolerance issues. It can be very frustrating to figure out, because they appear to be healthy in every other way, yet they slowly loose weight, because of the vomiting and/or diarrhea. Try changing her food to something she's never had with less/no grain and less ingredients, like lamb base or fish, if you haven't already, slowly switching her over. More frequent smaller meals is a good idea. Even now, with Kali, if she eats a large meal, she will get sick. she will throw up all her undigested food hours later. I have her on Prozyme enzymes to help with her digestion. You might ask your vet about it. I get it from Amazon, which is "a lot" cheaper than the vet. You could also ask your vet if you could try some Pepcid. Sometimes they get acid reflux. Good Luck and please keep us posted.

Dog Health > How Do I Protect My Dog If Something Happens To Me?

I worry about the same things. Esp., since Koby is still in training for his fear aggression (making leaps and bounds). I made arrangements with family to take my dogs if something happens to me. As for if there's an emergency, I would clearly post a note somewhere, including in my wallet, who to contact if something happens. We post the fire stickers on our doors if there's a fire that there are pets in the house. So, post a note by the phone with contact info for your pets if something happens. I don't live alone, so it's a bit easier for me.
