Dog aggressive to me


Recommended Posts

So my 4 year old male lurcher has recently ripped a claw off out running the other week, so I gave him a some lamb ribs just now and thought while he having a crunch I will have a look at his paw and give it a spray, well he snapped at me lip turned snarling back hunched so I shouted give him a slap across the nose took bone away and done what I needed to do to his paw. He soon backed down now I got doubts with him around my kids he in the house at the moment but I think might be best outside in kennel

Any dog show aggression round me or young there’s only uno option 

How would you like someone dicking about with your manky foot when you're trying to get the nosebag on ?

We talking about a dog mate not person

Get where your coming from though I have always distracted him with grub in the past while treating bumps and scratches and never had a problem 

First time he has ever behaved that way since owning  tbo just shocked me

Doesn't sound like it's fear based aggression from the injury. Sounds like food based aggression. Something remedied by excessively controlling the dogs feeding. Give, remove, give, remove, cover over with your hand, tell the dog to leave part way through, just reinforcing your control in the dogs head and ending it's possessiveness.

I don't like the trait at all.

I don't like fear based aggression either but it's more understandable and acceptable (to a degree) imo. If a dog's in pain and panicking (when being given first aid) lashing out is understandable and expected. There's a point at which it's not though.

The dog is in pain and is basically telling you that. He didnt make contact with you when he could have easily done. Also it’s the first time he’s done it, for me give him the benefit of the doubt but keep an eye on him.

I had a patterdale X staff I looked after for a few months do it to me once. Was gonna slap the little fucka. But me grandad who was a breeder and trainer told me better to pin the f**k down by his scuff till he submitted them let go but still stare him down and don't let him move. Then let him get up and carry on. Don't make a thing out of it. Just like pack leader would. The dog never did it again. I could take what I wanted off him even if he had a bone for half hour. As for kids. Id say you need to get them doing stuff so he knows his lower in pack than them and make sure no challenges will be accepted! Course I'm not saying that it will always work. Just my experience hope you get it sort atb Criss

Benefit of the doubt yes, but if kids are involved I wouldn’t give it a chance. I’d keep a dog like that outdoors, especially if you had any doubts.

Well my kids 10 and 13 and have been told the situation they understand but might be better all round if I kennelled him for a couple of weeks.

Any ideas how long before it grows back ?

If he rips  a claw again mate sort out his paw, and then give him some ribs 👍.. if it was me I'd see it as my mistake and carry on as normal but with food training like been said above... why kennel him for a couple of weeks it just f*ck the routine up for you both... All the best

You are possibly right, Chaff was there and he knows what happened and knows his dogs and kids. If he wants to kennel his dog then its entirely up to him. I was really reacting to a post about there being only one option.

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks

      Hello to all.
      I would like some help with our lurchers coat. Luna is 3 this year, her Mum was a Border Collie x Whippet (merle) her Dad a Whippet x Greyhound (Non-Merle). I think she has the harlequin merle modifier gene, I don't think she is double merle, her Dad was not cryptic as far as we can tell. She has no helth issues eyesight excellent and her hearing is as selective as any lurcher. 
      She is a stunning wee dog, very unique markings, great temperament.
      Any help appreciated.

      Help Required as to ancestry /history of my saluki /Greyhound. 
      I have just lost my dog of a lifetime to cancer, she was 11/12 yrs old.I am truly heartbroken. 
      I'm not a hunter,but have always loved sight hounds in particular salukis.
      My dog Fern was a very distinguishable sighthound ,her colouring alone a mutated dilute. Was quite a show stopper. I'd have people literally stopping cars to ask what she was as she held herself well and looked awesome. 
      She was Steel and tan with a white butterfly on chest. White tips on feet. 
      Fur like velvet and shone.
      A glamourous looking dog.
      She passed through I believe 5 lurcher men before coming to me age around 4 yrs. 
      I had her 8 yrs. 
      I have  sketchy details of her young life and know she was initially used as a racing dog and then a lampers dog. Until she hurt her spine and broke a toe.  
      Fern was born around 2009,lived in North East England (Northumberland).
      I believe she had two litters of puppies (do you have one?)
      Lived Winlaton, Mickley,Prudhoe , Ryton, Greenside, Horsley.
      I believe her father (sire) may of being khan jihad. 
      I believe her mother (dam) was a steel greyhound and was a Irish coursing champion.  
      Does anyone know who that might be?
      Who bred Fern?
      Does her heritage fit time scale wise?
      I would dearly love to know as I said, totally in bits at her loss. 
      I just want to try and recreate her or seek out someone who might be able too from same lineage. 
      Whilst I'm not a hunter, I turned Fern from huntress to helper in that I used her skills and abilities to bring deer out to me to photograph, as I'm a professional photographer. We were quite a team. 
      I just loved everything about that girl.
      Thanks for any help received.
