Behavior & Training > How Do I Deal With My "Scary" Leashed Dog?

Hey leave my- family ALONE!

The gentle leader head collar does work really well. I use it on volunteer days at the shelter when I go and walk dogs and for training the more hard headed ones. I am really consistent when using it on Casper my favorite dog there. He is 73 pounds of pure hardheaded muscle. We think that he is half white GSD and half Belgian Malinois but we arent sure. The director wanted me to walk him on a slip lead that if he had half a mind to he could snap it in a second and be gone. I showed her the gentle leader and walked him with it on once around her and she could not believe how much he changed just walking quietly beside me instead of lunging and pulling like a mad thing.

Food & Nutrition > free feeding

My dogs are all free fed and none of them are over weight. I just had them in at the vet last month for their shots and they are doing great. Three of the pack have gained a little weight which the vet said is fine. Blaize weighs 17.1 pounds Tundra is 54 pounds and Drizzit is up to 44 pounds. Tundra was 42 pounds last year and Drizzit was 32 pounds. Hailie, Tank and Bella look like they are being starved if they are not free fed but fed out of a bowl. The dog that I bring home every other weekend from the shelter where I volunteer is used to getting only one very small bowl of food per day and he is 73 pounds. How I dont know but he is a very powerful dog.

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > I know he is part White German Shepherd but what else is he?

Not real sure what he is but I know that I love this big guy. I have him here at home right now because I brought him home for the weekend and with the sudden snow that we got yesterday I called the shelter this morning and they told me just to stay home and keep him warm and happy till the roads are safer to travel. He is a real sweetheart and I love having him around just have to dig out my bigger crate from the back of the garage. He accepts the crate beautifully and is getting better on the leash. We are doing a lot of training when out for potty walks.

For a few months now I have been volunteering at one of our local no kill shelters working with one big beautiful dog in particular. He is a five year nine month old neutered White German Shepherd mix. We think he might have some Belgian Malinois in him but we arent sure. The shelter got him in over a year ago and no one wants to adopt him at all. He is a big snuggle bug but can be a bit hard headed. His name is Casper and the shelter lets me bring him home with me every other weekend just to give him a few days away from the shelter. He does pretty well with my own dogs but some of the shelter dogs seem to make him real nervous. You can see a picture of him on Hailie's page as I havent figured out how to post pictures anywhere else.

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Stray Dog in the yard. Dont wanna call AC cause it will be put down how do I help it?

Saw Phantom today. He looks better a little heavier but still really shy. I could only get half way across the yard before I saw what he was doing. The neighbors behind us have chickens IN TOWN. one of the chickens escaped the yard and was scratching and pecking the ground outside the fenced in yard. The neighbors with the chickens have a 5 foot high unroofed chain link fence around their yard. Its not secure enough for coyotes or foxes or any other animal to not be able to get in to get the chickens or to keep the chickens in and safe. Anyway I watched Phantom the stray catch and kill this chicken then trot off across several yards with the chicken in his jaws. He is definitely GSD but he looks like a badly bred American GSD. I have a feeling that Hailie will get blamed for the chicken getting killed and carried off because she is one of the few GSDs in our area. I have proof that she wasnt the one who killed the chicken though because she was in her kennel and was eating out of her feeder at the time. I know because I had just filled her feeder up two minutes before.

Havent seen Phantom since the break in a few nights ago. I think he got pretty spooked by the person who broke in. I cant say I blame him I am pretty shook up too. My thought has been since it happened "what if we had been home?" As for the temps its in the 30's here in southern Indiana with temps expected to hit -10 over the weekend. I only hope that Phantom is ok.

He looks pure shepherd to me, and we live too far in town for Phantom to be a coyote. I doubt he will be back today though after our house was broken into while my husband and I were out having a rare date night. I did leave a very tasty treat out for him though. I cooked up some meat that had been in the fridge for a couple weeks. I mixed it with a small leftover slice of pizza and some kibble so he might come back. I saw him this morning right outside the kennel run where Tank and Bella go when we let them out during the day. He looked like he had just come out from getting a drink in the garage. I just hope he knows I am trying to help.

I am gonna leave something really yummy for him tonight before I go to bed. The only place he could go to get warm is in the fenced in run we have up for Tank and Bella and its attached to the side of the garage where the door is open. We leave the gate open when we bring the dogs in at night. We are calling him or her Phantom for now.

I want to ad that I want to make sure this pup gets fattened up before we try to find a new home for it. Hailie was lucky if she was 20 pounds when she showed up in the yard. Last time she got weighed she was 65 pounds and that was when she was spayed. I want to fatten this guy up like we did Hailie. I just dont feel comfortable sending him to a rescue till he is healthy.

There has been a stray dog roaming around our yard since it started getting cold. My hubby saw it this morning and said its either a young GSD or Belgain Mal. He said now he knows where the spilled dog food has been going at night after we feed the dogs. He tried to get close to it today but it ran from him. I would like to try and help it because I would hate to see it get hit or shot. There has been some one shooting off a gun at night somewhere in the area. I also know that the shelter in our town is a kill shelter and would put this poor dog down. The hubby said its really skinny like Hailie was when we got her. A friend suggested getting a live trap and baiting it with a bowl of wet food. I thought about keeping food down for it and just slowly moving the food bowl closer to the door. Maybe I can make friends with the poor thing. First thing after that would be to get it to my vet for a check up and shots. First though is gaining its trust. How do I help this poor dog?
