Default Re: Alfie bit another dog today

Thanks Margaret - its been a terrible week with Skye and her antics last week and now this with Alfie!

Carol - your like a cheerleader over the water for Alfie and I!!!
I do an obedience class with my friends dog Roxy the boxer, this is a long story but I will try to shorten it a bit. I do agility with Skye but some days she is not interested in doing it so rather than force her to do it I decided it was worth taking Roxy, my friends dog as I had paid for the classes and was only doing about half of them. Its turned out that Roxy LOVES agility and is actually totally amazing at it and I plan on competing with her in agility. I felt that as she wasn't my dog we needed to spend more time together and also work on her general obedience a touch so we started a class last week which is run by 2 people one is the dog warden.
I called him the day after all that happened with Alfie as I will be seeing him for training tomorrow night anyway but he said to go along about an hour early and we can talk through what happened and where I stand with it all. He is also going to see if he can help out with Alfie's dog issues.
He is a great dog trainer - used to train the military dogs. Its all about positive training and happy owners = happy dogs. I couldn't wish for a better class to have joined!

Hi Allison....I've never posted to you before (that I can remember) and just have a little time right now.
I don't know the laws where you live but am an expert in this subject after owning a dog aggressive Aussie Terrier for 13 years.

THAT woman was TOTALLY in the wrong, and you and Alfie were extremely patient to tolerate the other dog's behavior for as long as you did. I think you said that the other dog was a lab....will read that over later.

Muzzling Alfie on walks when there are such useless dog owners out there will be very dangerous for him.....he needs to be able to protect himself. Thank goodness the other dog backed down when he got bit.

Sometime I want to read through all of Alfie's story....he is such a little doll but then I am very partial to terriers.
Thanks for listening to my rant....hugs for Alfie.
Jo-Ann & my Dollydog angel

Hi Jo-Ann,

Thanks for taking the time to rant - I love a good rant so feel free whenever you want!
I am very partial to a terrier as well - Since I was little its all I have ever owned and I dont think I would have anything else now. Love the terrier nature and temperament and I love the look of a terrier! Yeah so I get the feeling I love terriers!!!

Alfie is a very sweet boy who actually would let me do anything to him but with other dogs its a whole other story. I call him my house angel, street devil!

His dog aggression is something I manage as best I can but know that realistically he is never going be best friends with every dog he meets. I am taking him to see a dog trainer next week tho as since the lab thing happened his behaviour is much worse than it ever has been and walks are nothing but stressful for him and he used to love his walks but he is on hyper alert at all times we are out now. He still enjoys a good tummy rub in the house tho so its not all bad

Arrow Re: Alfie bit another dog today

It will take Alfie time to recover from this particular set-back; but I believe he WILL, in time, feel better. Mostly because you are so attentive and sensitive to his very real needs.

Love and hugs, licks and wags, from Kwali and Kumbi at the Bridge, and Camellia and me here on Earth!
