How to handle aggression in dogs: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 134

A barking or biting Fido is definately a no-no and can seriously give you a headache if you don’t know what to do. Aggression is the most common and most serious behavior problem in dogs. It’s also the number-one reason why pet parents seek professional help from behaviorists, trainers and veterinarians.

So rather your dog is showing their teeth, snarling, snapping or lunging  - knowing how to curb this behavior is key.

First you must understand why your dog is being aggressive. Aggression can be defined many ways and be caused by many things.

Typically dogs display the following types of aggression.

  • Dominant Aggression
  • Territorial Aggression
  • Fear Aggression
  • Prey or Predatorial Aggression

It is important to identify the type of aggression your dog is showing and handle it quickly and smoothly as well as reassure your dog to set them at ease.

Two tips to help you handle aggressive dogs are to socialize them and have them attend a basic obedience class. (We recommend obedience first and then after training has taken hold slowly introduce your dog to other dogs slowly and one at a time before introducing to groups of dogs.)

Utilizing an obedience technique you should have your dog sit and wait when people or pets approach that way a soft welcome can be achieved.

If you don’t trust your dog around adults, children or other dogs spend some more one on one time and continue practicing obedience until you feel confident in your dog. The last thing you need is you pup taking a bite out of your neighbor.

*Know that some breeds can be more aggressive than others so please consider this and do your research. You need to be realistic about your lifestyle and how much time you can invest in your pup….because if you ignore your pet….well they may become aggressive to you. So be sure to invest a lot of time, love and treats of course.

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: We Celebrate the Irish Setter

We always love getting emails from our customers & readers asking us to feature their dog or favorite breed for our Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed blog series every Thursday. As always we are honored to oblige.  Thanks all! We are excited to spotlight the Irish Setter!

Height: 25 to 27 inches tall at the shoulder.

Weight: 60 to 70 pounds

Coat: Short and fine on head and forelegs. On all other parts of moderate length and flat. Feathering long and silky on ears; on back of forelegs and thighs long and fine, with a pleasing fringe of hair on belly and brisket extending onto the chest. Fringe on tail moderately long and tapering. All coat and feathering as straight and free as possible from curl or wave. The Irish Setter is trimmed for the show ring to emphasize the lean head and clean neck. The top third of the ears and the throat nearly to the breastbone are trimmed. Excess feathering is removed to show the natural outline of the foot. All trimming is done to preserve the natural appearance of the dog.

Color: Mahogany or rich chestnut red with no black. A small amount of white on chest, throat or toes, or a narrow centered streak on skull is not to be penalized.

Appearance: The Irish Setter is an active, aristocratic bird dog, rich red in color, substantial yet elegant in build. Standing over two feet tall at the shoulder, the dog has a straight, fine, glossy coat, longer on ears, chest, tail and back of legs. Afield, the Irish Setter is a swift-moving hunter; at home, a sweet natured, trainable companion.

At their best, the lines of the Irish Setter so satisfy in overall balance that artists have termed it the most beautiful of all dogs. The correct specimen always exhibits balance, whether standing or in motion. Each part of the dog flows and fits smoothly into its neighboring parts without calling attention to itself.

Temperament: The Irish Setter has a rollicking personality. Shyness, hostility or timidity are uncharacteristic of the breed. An outgoing, stable temperament is the essence of the Irish Setter.

Health: Irish Setters can live as long as 15 years. Common health issues can include hip dysplasia, skin allergies, eye problems and epilepsy. Also, observe portion control when it comes to feeding: Irish Setters are prone to bloat. Feeding them smaller meals throughout the day is a good practice.

Is your dog barking for time in the spotlight?

Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity: We Salute The DALLAS | FORT WORTH LABRADOR RETRIEVER RESCUE

We are dedicated to spreading awareness about pet related causes such as pet adoption. So we are excited to announce our new Tuesday blog series “Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity”, to pay tribute and honor animal rescue, shelters and charities. These are our unsung heroes across America dedicated to enriching, saving and nurturing the lives of animals in need.  We hope you will champion our cause by barking the word about the importance of pet adoption, You can also donate your time and finances to help your local animal shelter, rescue or charity. Be a voice, email us if you know of a deserving animal rescue, non profit or charity that should be spotlighted and recognized. With that said, we are proud to spotlight The DALLAS | FORT WORTH  LABRADOR RETRIEVER RESCUE. Thanks for rescuing and rehabilitating homeless Labradors!

About DFW LRRC

The Dallas Fort Worth Labrador Retriever Rescue Club, Inc. (DFWLRRC) is dedicated to alleviating the needless death and suffering of homeless or misplaced (lost and stray) purebred Labrador Retrievers in the Dallas Fort Worth area.

They provide education about responsible dog ownership, including, but not limited to, counseling on behavior and obedience training, sterilization (spaying and neutering) and veterinary care. They seek out loving homes for these Labradors and provide quality interim care and rehabilitation through volunteer foster homes and veterinary intervention.

By rescuing and rehabilitating homeless Labradors in their community, vigorously promoting responsible dog ownership through active participation in pet-related events, and through their own education program, they strive for a better life for each of our animals.

Where do the Labs come from that are in their program?

Dogs in their program come through a variety of avenues. Some dogs come from an area shelter, humane society, picked up by a concerned citizen, or surrendered by its owner. Often, they get in surrender applications from people who can no longer care for their dogs due to health issues, military relocations or moving where dogs are not allowed. Each dog is evaluated by a DFWLRRC volunteer before it can enter into our program.

How Can You Help?

Volunteer and be a lifeline for each and every lab that comes through DFWLRRC. Look into the eyes of any of the rescues and you will see their eternal gratitude for that second chance at life…the second chance volunteers gave to them. They are so thankful a volunteer listened to that inner voice that nudged them into signing up to do that home study, showing up to that meet n greet to talk with potential adopters or opening up their home to foster that Lab in need. Yes, each and every one of their volunteers makes a difference — no matter what the contribution. Without their volunteers they would not have been able to help nearly 500* Labs since 2004.

Donate: Help make a difference by supporting this special cause.

Want to see some seriously cute dog – take a look at their available labs for adoption. If you can’t adopt you can always consider fostering.

Be sure to check them out on facebook and bark your support. https://www.facebook.com/DFWLabradorRescue

More Halloween Safety Tips for Dogs: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 133

Well it’s the time of the year again. For fido with those nonstop doorbell rings we call it…Bark-o-ween. As much as we may enjoy this holiday, Halloween can be confusing and scary for our four legged friends. Here are some more safety tips and things to consider to ensure a successful Halloween with your dog:

1. Ding Dong – CANDY PLEASE! If your dog is nervous and reacts to the sound of a door bell, this can be a good time to practice and train fido if you have someone helping you. Have one person pass out the candy and you can practice obedience with your dog. If you are just starting out, you can keep your dog on a leash for this training exercise. Every time the door bell rings and your dog acts appropriately (perhaps a bark and then quickly calms down), he gets his own doggy approved treat. Start out several feet away from the door. By the end of the night, he might not even care who is ringing your door bell because he is already ready for that treat! This is an excellent desensitization exercise if done properly. If you know this simply won’t work perhaps consider boarding or leaving your pup with a loved one.

2. Boo-Hiss-Woo! Scary sights and sounds. The door training may be too much for your dog and he may feel more comfortable in his own safe space. It is perfectly ok if your dog would rather be in another area happily chewing on a treat/bone instead. Please observe your dog’s comfort level here and crate, or move him if necessary.

Children who are loud and excited in costume may scare your dog. Gauge how your dog responds and act accordingly. If your dog is showing signs of stress, remove him from that situation. If your dog is already nervous around children, this would NOT be a good time to try and socialize him around kids. The last thing you need is your dog scaring your unfriendly neighbor’s child. On the other hand this might be a great time to make new friends and even potential play pals for your pup.

3. Hot Dog! Costumes for Dogs. If you are dressing up your dog for Halloween, please make sure your dog can still properly see, hear and move comfortably. Other dogs may react poorly when they see dogs in costume. This isn’t out of the norm, so just be aware and observant. And please dress creatively or ironically.

4. Not a treat! Chocolate and other goodies. After the kids bring home their stash, it is very common for dogs to find their way into the candy. Encourage your kids to keep all candy away and properly stored, so your dog cannot access it. Here are some treats that your pup can have.

Have a safe Halloween from your friends at Best Bully Sticks! Woof Woof!

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: We Celebrate the Otterhound

otterhoundWe always love getting emails from our customers & readers asking us to feature their dog or favorite breed for our Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed blog series every Thursday. As always we are honored to oblige.  Thanks all! We are excited to spotlight the Otterhound!

Height: Male 27 inches tall, Female 24 inches tall

Weight: Male 115 lbs, Female 80 lbs

Coat: “Shabby chic” is a good way to describe the coat of the Otterhound. The weather-resistant double coat is made up of a rough, thick top coat that is anywhere from two to six inches in length, and a wooly, oily undercoat. The coat is designed to protect the dog from cold water.

Color: The most common coat colors are black and tan and grizzle.

Appearance: The Otterhound is a shaggy, rough-coated hound who sports a shaggy beard and bushy eyebrows. The head is similar in shape to a Bloodhound, measuring 11 to 12 inches from the end of the nose to the occiput for a 26 inch tall dog, and similarly proportioned for other sized dogs. The muzzle is square, the jaw powerful and the flews deep. The nose should be large and is black or liver in color, depending on the color of the coat. The eyes are deep set and range in color from black to hazel, always complimenting the coat coloring. The ears are set low and should reach the tip of the nose when pulled forward. The tail is high set, long, and tapered, reaching at least to the hock. Webbed feet assist in swimming. The most common colors are black and tan and grizzle.

Temperament: Otterhounds are big, shaggy dogs who love to run and swim, but don’t like being told what to do. They are friendly and easy going, happy to greet newcomers with a wag of a their tail. Otterhounds are independent animals, however, who don’t like being told what to do or when to do it. Their easy-going nature makes this trait easy to overlook, as it’s not likely you’ll ask him to do too many things he doesn’t want to, other than say, come in from playing outside. Otterhound are best served by experienced dog owners who love the outdoors.

The Otterhound is a great family pet who is enthusiastic, gentle and fun loving. It may not realize its size at times and can be clumsy, so despite the dog’s great love for children, it should be supervised while playing with them. Although affectionate and intelligent, they can be hard to train, so a firm, loving and patient hand is essential. The Otterhound is exceptionally friendly toward other dogs as well as people, making it a constant people pleaser but a lousy guard dog. The breed enjoys baying occasionally but does not bark excessively, and most people would describe the dog as a generally laid back and amiable companion.

Health: The average life span of the Otterhound is 11 to 13 years. Otterhounds are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they’re prone to certain health conditions. Not all Otterhounds will get any or all of these diseases, but it’s important to be aware of them if you’re considering this breed. Prone to Gastric dilatation-volvulus (aka bloat), Hip Dysplasia, Canine Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia (CIT) an immune systems disorder.

BestBullySticks.com Rescue Shelter $1000 Giveaway WinnersDrum-roll please! We have 2 winners in our favorite Best Bully Sticks Rescue Shelter $1000 Giveaway!

Congrats winners! Both of your rescues will be mailed a $500 check each. Here is a little information about our bark-worthy & inspiring rescue winners. Please support their cause!

1. Born Again Pit Bull Rescue (BAPBR) was founded in 2007 by Angela Adams. They have since grown from a small independent private rescue to a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization in 2011.  They are located in Portland, Oregon and they work with the public in finding homes for Pit Bulls that have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or fallen victim to other situations in their lives. BAPBR strives to educate the public about this breeds true nature and encourages responsible ownership by offering training resource and health care advice in hopes to decrease the number of Pit Bulls that are given up each year.

BAPBR’s mission is to rescue pit bulls from local area shelters, rehabilitate, rehome(find qualified homes for these great dogs), and repair the reputation of the American Pit Bull Terrier, along with promoting responsible pit bull ownership.  BAPBR is also passionate about setting pit bulls and their owners up for success through education, awareness and advocacy.  They also combat pet overpopulation and fight unfair legislation’s.

2. Great Dog Rescue New England (GDRNE) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit, shelterless, all-breed rescue group headquartered in Massachusetts. Their group is comprised of volunteers all over New England who love dogs and want to help those that end up homeless through no fault of their own. Loyal and loving dogs turn up every day in New England and Southern shelters, as owners turn them in or they’re found roaming the streets after being dumped. To the best of our abilities, they evaluate all of our Great Dogs’ temperament and suitability for living with other dogs, cats, and children. A dog’s health is checked, and they make sure they are up-to-date on all shots and are spayed or neutered. Then, they place them in loving foster homes until they find their very own family. Their goal is to meet the needs of each dog as an individual and to assure proper placement in a loving forever home.

Great Dog is dedicated to animal rescue. In addition to their primary goal of helping homeless and abandoned dogs find loving forever homes, they:

  • donate money to spay and neuter clinics in the south to help solve the problem of pet overpopulation;
  • engage in community outreach activities with local schools to help educate children and young adult
    about animal rescue, responsible pet ownership, proper pet care, etc.
  • adopt dogs to agencies that train dogs to assist physically disabled and hearing impaired people
    (many dogs that were abandoned are now helping people lead independent lives!).

Thank you to all the other wonderful rescues for entering and the many fans and dog lovers that voted. Here at Best Bully Sticks we are proud of the work that all of these amazing rescues and shelters do for animals in their local communities and beyond across America.
