    I think the addition of the puppy was the cause for conflict to manifest itself into discipline. The older male dog leads and has first right to affection, food, resting places etc. No conflict. And they probably didn’t see his attempts at controlling things prior, lots of people mistake splitting for “jealousy” etc. and don’t see interactions for what they are. She mentioned food aggression or resource guarding which can be synonymous with perceived conflict in the home, and can be exacerbated by how its handled.

    Now there is a puppy and his world is changing, the puppy now is getting affection and is sharing resting places etc. Its like everything in the pitties environment says he is the leader but the family is not acting on it. Imagine being in charge of a household where everything is out of control.

    The big boy was disciplining whoever it was that told the puppy to get off the couch, not because he owned the puppy, because he controls resting places and interactions between family members. Then directed his attention on her for intervening in a dispute that from his pov was none of her business. The voracity of the attack was probably genetic.

    First I would make sure the handler is a leash ninja, has an understanding of EO. and that the puppy has the right gear, can wear it for play etc, and is comfy following the owner around for cookies. I like having them do as much off leash phase 1 bonding and leadership and management as possible.

    I love using the “bed”command to teach dogs who are brand new to leash handling about leash pumps, but that is just what I find is easiest for people and the dogs, due to the visual aid the bed provides. Before this they need to learn phase 1 bed and fade off the prompts. If there is a rush for leash use, I use phase 1 “this way” to start the communication and then move into p2.

    That is an interesting point, I was so focused on coverage for bite work and aggression that I didn’t think about that. I am waiting to hear back from them re: virtual training.

    I have an adult male Huskey who is in a leadership transition and every single calorie comes out of the bait pouch. She is using sport dog “dock” formula (nice and stinky) and vital essential nibs. Granted this is a dominant dog and dominance conflict case, but never the less, I have done this with other dogs that are not necessarily prepared to make an exchange for food.

    I would avoid products with citronella as it is a deterrent to dogs and in large amounts can cause neurological deficits in humans and animals.
