  1. How to deal with an agressive dog:
    1) learn it from somebody else.
    2) watch somebody else doing it
    3) handle it to someone else…


  2. Soooo… it doesn't actually teach you any techniques of aggression conditioning at all.. it just says to have someone else deal with it. not too helpful if you ask me :/

  3. hahahahahaha! priceless! Dogs cannot learn the meaning of human languague unless they understand what it is a word stands for. Utter ignorance!

  4. My sis has a playfull puddle mix lil dog and got attacked by a Pitbull and weeks later when my dog was oka i was training him to bite by slapping it on the face things like that kus it don't bite ppl-_-

  5. That type of muzzle shouldn't be used anyway. It doesn't not allow the dog to pant its only way of cooling itself down. A cage muzzle is better it allows the dog to pant, drink water and you can reward it for good behaviour without putting yourself in danger. This video is pretty much preventative stuff not actually how to deal with an aggressive dog.

  6. you will never get completely rid of a dogs aggression just like you wont ever completely get rid of a humans .. its the boundaries you set that teach the dog what is and isnt acceptable .. look for warnings the dog gives you and dont cross the line

  7. there is no instant solution, its an animal not a tamagotchi you need lots of patience .. it could take a few days to a few months .. in the mean time protect your dog and protect others by using a muzzle and keep at the training … go to dog training where you will have a professional and a controlled environment, set your dog up to win and make it fun .. good luck

  8. hi
    Hope you are a trainer better train yourself then train dog.
    i know your trick to deal with the aggressive dog but my friend training is an trick to make dog perform by force but by love and revord.
    Better try next time and dont upload such scrap video on youtube
    Take care

  9. That dog was not acting aggressive, try watching an episode of Cesar Milan when dealing with a 'Red Zone' dog as he calls them. This video was a load of rubbish.

  10. They put a cup with sleeping gases and stuff that covers the dog's face and they keep it there for about 3 hours, the dog dies w/o pain like that.

  11. euthanize means they humanely kill the dog. pretty much killing the dog in a unharmful way. actually in mexico they electrocute dogs for euthanasia… look teh word up in a dictionary.

  12. GOD, another time with this old shit of dominance! Cesar Millan, this is YOUR STUFF! Hahahahahaha. We want something updated. BUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!

  13. Muzzles prevent biting. It's important to get them spayed and neuters. I've seen people tie ropes on their mouths,so they don't bark.

  17. if you want to put up a video on how to deal with an aggressive dog, fist make sure you have an aggressive dog. this is a modern GSD and in this video does not show neither aggression, nor prey or defensive drives. or, on a second thought, dont get an aggressive dog. you' could get seriously mauled. because you clearly dont know anything about canine behaviour. so please, do not make videos like this one. it could get people hurt.

  18. skaterlife – he may have rescued that dog ?? and he may well be helping it with it's problem – that would be a good thing , right ??.. that is a beautiful dog , by the way..

  19. Instead of telling you how Dominance and repercussion based training is superior I ask you, what would you do to train a dog that has bitten someone and continues to show aggressive behavior?

  20. Stop reciting Cesar, if you're gonna teach us something, try a method that won't stress a dog out, like what you're doing. Also, learn how to put a muzzle on properly before acting as a teacher.

  21. This is not even a thorough BASIC overview of dog aggression… it mentions fear aggression once, which in my observations of all the dogs I've come into contact over the years tends to be more prevalent than dominance aggression. Fear aggression needs to be treated completely differently than dominance aggression, and you can actually do more harm trying to 'dominate' a fearfully aggressive dog than good!

  22. are you kidding me, none of what you said applies to working with reactive dogs. I mean get with the program this is 2013 and learn about behavior….

  23. not really..that's wrong. Cesar millan have his own methods. They works but if you do anything wrong it can make everything even worse. That's why he always says "don't try this at home"or something like that… cause that's not normal methods that everyone shall try as fast they get an aggresive dog.

  24. What awful, misleading and outdated information! Check out Dr. Sophia Yin's excellent videos. Never use a groomers muzzle on and aggressive dog! You will increase it's stress level, driving it nuts and making it more aggressive. Gross.

  25. Last step: Seek advice from someone who REALLY knows a thing or two about a dog's behavior ! ! ! I hope to God nobody will take this stupid advice you're giving here ! ! ! UNBELIEVABLE !

  26. I like this video, and these tactics helped my aggressive dog pass her aggression test at my apartment complex. I also had one-on-one training with a Schutzhund professional. *I* was the one who needed training. *I* needed to understand that my dog had fear aggression. *I* needed to send her to daycare so she could run with the dogs and expend energy. *I* got her a basket muzzle for public wear so *I* wouldn't send her my own fear vibes. *I* had to be pack leader. She ended up a Very Happy Dog.

  27. "Pack leader" and dominence theory is outdated science based on captive wolf packs of unrelated anmals.

    1) dogs are not wolves
    2)wild wolf backs behave differently to those involved and are *family* groups

    Modern animal behavior *science*, and most good trainers who keep up to date with the research and literature, stopped with the dominance theory stuff 30 years ago.

  28. yeah. we must kill the bad fat and belly first to get the 6 pack. Between The surprising part is my friend who is not doing much excercises, maintaining his six pack with this secret food items. have a look here ==> bit.ly/1aiFwYo?=jmxei

  29. Science-based training vs. debunked alpha theory… It is not a debate when non-scientists are arguing against scientists.

    If you think alpha theory or dominance training is relavent to your domesticated dog, you have soooo much reading to do.

  30. Scientists build the nuclear power plant in Fukushima. Not all scientists know what they are doing. So are the so called dog behaviorists! And every dog is different. they are not all the same.

  31. My Mimi (a Doberman) had a Dr. Jekil and Mr. Hyde personality. She was a darling with family members and a fiend to outsiders. She was The best watch dog, protector and bodyguard I ever had. RIP Mimi

  32. But what if you found out that your cute li'l fluffy white puppy was really a polar bear which your friend stole from the zoo because you won't be their friend?

  33. The idea there are alpha wolfs in packs was debunked a few decades ago. They work together and share leadership. There have been several studies to prove it.

  34. Total rubbish, every single step is rubbish. As it comes only out of and into idiotic dominance theory. How on earth is possible to become a pack leader of species that never form pack ???!!! Then not surprisingly you are able to see dominance in every move, this called paranoia !!!:)

  35. What a dumb video! LOL! 1:06 timeout? WTF! Dogs aren't kids! They do not understand the concept of timeout you stupid fuck! and spying and neutering does not fix the aggression issues dumbass. A vet must of created this video.

  36. The only thing this video was right about is that you need patience. It's easy to punish a dog and be 'dominant', but properly raising a dog takes months and indeed a lot of patience.

  37. this beautiful German Shepherd looked unhappy and stressed from the beginning to the end  of video.
    Aggression comes usually from fear of being mistreated (again!) Step one: carefully, calmly and gently win the trust of the dog…step two: be loved by him and love him!

  38. So how do I deal with it when I flock of wild aggressive dogs is running after me? They do get their exercise then, but I do not see how that helps me.

  39. Step 1: Draw your legally licensed concealed pistol.

    Step 2: Discharge pistol into the head of aggressor.

    If the owner of the now dead dog attempts to threaten you, repeat Step 2.

  40. my friend has a dog who hates my guts. everytime he scents me or hears me he charges and tries to rip my sun dress or jeans. I can understand why. he was adopted from a shelter, and my friend guesses he was abused judging from the chain marks on his neck and his torn ear. I think he hates me because he was freshly adopted when I pet him a bit too hard on the head. do you know anything I can do?

  41. i find that a snub-nosed .38, wrapped in a towel, Godfather2 style, shut my neighbors dog up for good… Nice doggie!

  42. My trick is, if a dog approaches me and is growling or barking aggressively, I make cat imitations at the dog. Most times the dog settles down.  I find this helpful delivering parcels to a house with an aggressive dog–meowing calms them down.  My first experience was with our family's Corgi named Demi.  She'd growl and show her teeth to warn us to leave her alone; then I'd meow at her and she'd quit the growling and teeth-showing and begin wagging her tail and giving me kisses.  I called this behavior "mushing."  Only my folks tried it when Demi got crabby with them and my technique didn't work for them–I was the only one who could defuse her.

  43. I don't have an aggressive dog, I want to deal with my neighbour's dog. They scare the heck out of me. Whenever I leave outside my house, they be following me and I'll stay at the corner of my other neighbour's house.

  44. Exercise, rules and boundaries, and confining/muzzling the dog in risky situations are all excellent advice, however the role of "dominance" in dog training has been disproven as misinterpretation of an old and flawed study on newly mixed wolf packs in captivity. Treating aggression (which often stems from fear or insecurity) with force often makes the behavior much worse. Many modern trainers now use Systematic Desensitization Counter Conditioning, which gradually gets the animal used to whatever it aggresses at while changing their emotional perception of it from something "bad" to something "good" (check out Ian Dunbar, Pam Dennison, Pat Miller, Jean Donaldson, Emma Parsons, Grisha Stewart, etc). Spaying and neutering has more recently shown to increase the likelihood of aggression and anxiety, especially when performed at an early age, and I would add that vaccines are absolutely implicated in aggressive and fearful behaviors in dogs, so this should be considered as a potential factor in the behavior. (Also noticed that the muzzle was placed on the dog upside-down. Honest mistake I'm sure, but its very important to be aware of proper equipment use for safety reasons when working with aggressive dogs.)
