HELP! Dog barks at other dogs and children!!

Hi Everyone,

I am in desperate need of any help/advice regarding my dog. He is 5 years old mixed breed (pomeranian cross cavalier king charles). I've had success in putting him on a training for 2 weeks when he was 2 years but I had to leave him with my friend for a year before I brought him here in Canada.

He now developed aggression problems towards others dogs while we are walking him on leash. There were instances too that he goes crazy when he see kids playing. I am not so sure why he is displaying this kind of behaviour towards other dogs.

I could not bring him out to dog parks with the fear of having him go crazy again. I do want to address this issue right away so any advice is much appreciated.

If anyone of you had the same issue, please do recommend some trainer around midtown Toronto, I would love that as well.

Thank you in advance for the help!

There's no quick fix for that type of behavior. There's a facebook group dedicated to working with fear reactive dogs. If you are on Facebook look up they have a link to help members find trainers in the file section along with a lot of information on how to work with reactive dogs.

I rescued a 10 month old female giant schnauzer "Bailey" that was going to be euthanized for the same behavior you mentioned above. She was kicked out of puppy class and the vet labeled her aggressive and recommended the euthanasia after she had prescribed prozac. ugh I noticed when I took her places she barked at adults like she wanted to play but was not sure. With children it was more stay away bark and she would snap her teeth together. She was raised with a 8-10 year old boy.

I began with teaching her leave it...on my web site, on the articles page, you can download my post on "leave it" in doc format. or you can read it in the notes section on my facebook page.

I would make a flirt pole to play with him with to help build his confidence, work off pent up energy and work his brain. Praise him for everything he does that you like. Make it a positive big deal. Teach him he does not have to be defensive over anything, that you are their to protect him.

Something happened during that year and he learned this behavior was the only way to react to it. All you have to do is teach him he no longer has to behave that way. It did not take Bailey long to learn not all children will hurt her and she now barks aware she is playing and when asked to stop she does.

A dog can sense your energy so if you are afraid of a behavior at a specific time they will feed of that energy. You don't have to worry just be prepared to tell him leave it and turn around.
