**UPDATE 6/eight/12**
As the variety of video clip sights continues to maximize we have started out to observe a number of uneducated responses. Please browse the adhering to and if you however have a dilemma be sure to really feel free of charge to ask.
This is a Client of Carolina Canine Teaching, LLP. This puppies DOB is 11/13/2010. By the time she was 10 weeks previous she experienced PUNCTURED her operator on three separate events about food items. Just one of individuals bites bundled this 10 7 days previous pup launching about a food items bin and puncturing her house owners arm.
We ended up known as in due to the fact it experienced been advisable to euthanize. At that place we did a full temperament evaluation which allows a specialist (stranger) to exam a puppies reactivity to lots of various situations. What you see below is JUST the food items portion of the evaluation. I am purposely pushing this pup to see how a great deal she will tolerate me all-around food items in advance of she will chunk. I believe this video clip evidently demonstrates her threshold and intention.
Simply because I was dealing with a 10 7 days previous pup I did make a person error – I enable my guard down and was not properly defensively dealing with myself which allowed her to rip my trousers and chunk my leg. From that place ahead, I was working with defensive dealing with methods to a person, defend myself and two, preserve this 10 7 days previous pup from successfully biting again. I DID NOT cling, choke out, or strangle this pup period. If you view meticulously, you will see that I only utilised the leash in a tight manner when she was coming AT ME with intent to hurt.
The second fifty percent of the video clip fast forwards four weeks (of which she was expressing with us for education). We are working with a confirmed method of systematic counterconditioning (her notion of an individual approaching her food items bowl as a threat) and desensitization (to her triggers of people today currently being all-around her food items bowl). At this place she is fourteen weeks previous and experienced ZERO punishment.
We program to do an up-to-date video clip of this dog so people today can see the extended time period effects.
Delight in the video clip – many thanks for seeing!

  2. Need to balance out the ignorance in the comment section. What many are failing to realize is the emotion of the puppy has changed: When he seems someone approach his food he is happy and relaxed. He doesn't feel the need to keep people away from his food, now he expects good things to come from people. The treats can be weaned, but the puppy will continue to be relaxed because they've learned people aren't a threat.
    If a dog growls at you when you mess with their food, and then you hit them YOU'VE TAUGHT THE DOG YOU ARE A THREAT!!! They will be even more protective of the food. The dog may be shut down and not physically react, but the dog will not be happy to see people anywhere near their food. It's not wise to train a dog based on force because the dog is more likely to be physically aggressive and may target those too weak to defend themselves.

  3. Very nice progress.  You can really see the shift in the puppy's body language – from defense to anticipation.  It's unfortunate that so many commenters are rushing to judgment without an understanding that true behavior change is a process, that this is going to require consistent repetition to get the puppy to the point that he willingly gives up food because it is worthwhile to do so and, once that shift has occurred, there is no need to use the clicker.

    Nice work!

  4. I don't normally comment on these type of videos .. but… 
    I agree that the dog in question has really came out of the whole 'feeding ritual' thing. I would like to see, however, a video of you approaching the food bowl without a clicker or treats and see how the dog reacts.

  5. Carolina: what did you even accomplish here? I would like to see a follow up video where he gives away his food/toys to you, freely, without treats involved.

  6. So many people who comment here have infinite emo-twaddling, yet, zero goddamn expertise in handling dogs.

    No wonder so many dog trainers that publish on YouTube have to disable the comment section. Too many cretins whine and bitch instead of asking and discussing the case at hand.

  9. Excellent demo of acute food aggression! She sure turned into a little cujo around the feeding bowl. Gotta love the wonders of counterconditioning!!! 🙂

  10. I didn't find a follow up video to this and I'm curious. After seeing this pup I have hope for mine because he's not as aggressive. He'll back off and sit down when I say to, but he's far from relaxed. It's a frustrating process!

  20. WTF are you doing to the dog?! Ofcourse it's guarding the food when you have that kind of relationship to the dog (that you can hang the dog like that). Must say you're a horrible human beeing. Please LEARN about the animal you take in to your home, if you'd understand the dog – this would never happend.

  21. what if the dog passed out while hanging,will he regain consciousnesses?

  22. Absolutely, if you don't mind being bitten.

  23. what i think i saw is you hanging the dog with a dominant collar that doesn't hurt the dog but keeps the air out, do you think i should use it for an adult aggressive dog?

  26. @gettinggeeky Thanks for watching our videos! It's very hard to give advice without showing you hands on but you can make great progress by tossing a higher value food to Callie when she is eating. Give her plenty of space and don't get too close to her. You don't need a clicker. It took time for us to be able to walk right by and feed her so please be patient and stay at a distance when tossing food. You want Callie to view someone close by as providing something, not taking away!
