  1. I wish you would break it down to the nuts and bolts. I lost the point you were trying to make.

  3. I totally get the owner thing. I have some serious issues with my mom. She's the person that believes little dogs don't need training because they aren't "real" dogs. As a result, the 2 small dogs have big reactivity problems. They won't fight each other, they are very bonded to each other. They will however, go after the big dog's out of insecurities. Loud noise? Rush across the room to attack the malinois. New person? Go after the mal. Something going on? Go after the mal. They won't go after the German Shepherd because he doesn't react to them at all and they gave up. You can see how dangerous that is. The mal has never hurt them, but she has held them down with her paws or grabbed their scruff. She doesn't want to take their shit. But that might change one day. One of the little dogs would have been a great sports dog in her younger years if she would have received the proper training. She's got the drive, she's got the intelligence, she's got the energy. But my mom refuses to do anything. She sent the big dogs to training after our previous gsd went after another gsd and my mom needed stitches. She flat out said "I forgot this is the type of training you have to keep up on"… All training is.

    I have big plans this summer – the problem with the little dogs is going to change. When I move out (I'm away at college), I'm either taking the little dogs or my mal. I'm afraid my mom won't keep up on the training with the little dogs and they'll go back to how they were. But I also don't think she can handle my mal. She also wants her to use as her service dog. The mal was mine, but she washed in large due to the part to her problem with the little dogs and she wasn't enjoying being out in public all day. She is not service dog quality and I don't want to leave her to end up doing something she doesn't like and shouldn't be out doing at all. Either way, one of the dogs is going to get the short end of the stick and it breaks my heart because my mom will never change. The dogs will never get what they truly need with her because she doesn't want to change

  6. Larry, do you have any podcasts? I would absolutely love to listen to you while I work training dogs, it's relaxing listening to somebody who knows their shit. I'm sure many people would like to tune in for a bit.

  8. LOVE this! So many good points. Love how you talk about how you can't fix the dog if you can't fix the owner. So true! And love how you talk about how the problem is never fixed; that it can be eliminated with diligence but that it never completely goes away. And I got goosebumps on your story about your walk with your son. Wow! Thank the Lord I've never had this experience, but there are times when I thought I was going to. I wish more people understood how important it is to protect our dogs from other dogs and other people. Larry, thank you! Thank you for what you do and for sharing it. I have learned so much from you.

  10. I just had an issue today with a pit bull I have had for 7 years issue free and a cane Corso I have had for about a year both are both males and the Corso isn't neutered. I was sitting in my family room with the both of them the pit bull was sitting right near me, bugging for attention and the Cane Corso was right behind him to the side waiting for my attention also. The pit bull turned around and by the time the Cane Corso new what was going on and I realized the pit bull was biting him in the face. When I stopped it there was atleast 7 punctures in the Cane Corsos face. I am so confused at this point cause the pit bull has lived with me and as many as 5 adult dogs (that now RIP) at once, with no incidents. I just started looking for another dog about a week ago and now this happened. I try to never add more dogs until I have had a dog for a year sometimes sooner but a year is ideal in my mind. How long should I wait with no incidents before I get another dog?

  11. My daughter's service dog in training is amazing in most areas but he has an obsession with cats. I'm not sure what to do? He doesn't want to hurt them he wants to be near them and just fixate on them. He chases our cat if I don't catch him in time to get his attention and tell him no. I'm scared when he's attached to my daughter he's gonna pull her down to chase a cat??? The trainer we are working with that got us the dog told us to use the ecollar but it's not fixing the problem!

  12. This video is a treasure for every person who ever even witnessed a dog fight.  I have lived this with a male adult 'game type' APBT from Virginia (where the Vick compound was located), and the county is known as a backward and rough area of central VA.  What you explain in some detail, I have never heard detailed before and I have looked. My pro rehabber understands what is happening and why and knows what to do. But any person whose dog is showing aggression towards another animal or human (biting, lunging, etc.) should memorize this video and find a true pro rehabber. It takes a skilled dog person to do it and not good intentions or 'love'.

    I have dealt with this between my male 'game type' APBT and my male boxer. I have had 8 sessions with a local trainer and rehabber  (he does both) and my male APBT has done everything we ask of him. He was obedience trained well when we started because I follow several top rehabbers online and took 3 dogs through CGC and handled dozens of untrained rescue dogs over the years. So I am not a regular dog owner. I have handled shelter dogs for years to get them evaluated and adopted. It is not a job to rehab a dog-aggressive dog as a 'DIY project'. I believe even experienced amateur trainers need professional help to understand what to do and how and why. It is not intuitive for most folks.
      Separating a male APBT in-shape and a male Boxer inside a house alone could have ended with a dead dog. I managed to separate them with a 'pocket door' , paid a doctor 500-700 dollars for the Boxer's injuries, and determined to find professional help and to keep the dogs separate at all times. And now I am on a path to eventual success. It is not a game and it is a problem that can hurt a person badly (I had a dislocated finger joint in 1 of my APBTs 3 fights). The 2 fights at a park were from 2 different male loose dogs running up in my APBTs face…. the very thing a true pitbull will not back down from. Both dogs were substantially hurt. And I ALWAYS carry dog formula pepper foam at all times (for animals or dangerous people) after the second fight in a year at the park. It's not bluster nor a joke. Once you see and break up 1 dog fight, your view of dog aggression changes. A dog fight with medium sized dogs in a frenzy is dangerous to people and potentially deadly for a dog or person (a femoral artery puncture or heart attack will kill an adult inside 5 minutes). It's true danger.

  13. Larry, You are the man, See thats why so many people love you cause you explain how to fix the problem with the dog. You don't say you need to send your dog out to a trainer. But as you know, There are so many people that call them selfs trainers. But to me your the real dog trainer cause you tell people or you show them how to fix the problem as in your videos. I have never heard of a dog trainer that is willing to tell you or show you how to fix a dog problem & not charge for it. All dog trainers I call up & explain my situation & they say you'll have to bring the dog in & leave it here for a week or so just to get the money, But they don't tell you there having you bring the dog in so they can try to fix the problem, But in the long run the dog would come back worse than when it left the home. They don't sit you down & explain how to fix the problem & see if you can do it yourself.. But see that is the reason I just keep watching your videos & trust yin what your saying on how to fix the problem & I really thank you for that & I know alot more people than you for the same reason. Only reason I am stuck watching your videos & not sending my dogs out is cause I'm on disability on a very limited income. My dogs have bit my arm & ripped the skin off my arm almost to the bone but I will never put my dogs down for something I let them do. Thats why I am watching your videos.
