Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey guys,

I have a wonderfully sweet husky, who though, is very much a dog who prefers one and only one, person, she also could melt your heart. Loves belly rubs, and face kisses from anyone.

However, she has a problem. Shiri (Her name) doesn't like (An understatement) aggressive or overly curious dogs. She'll ignore or occasionally whine at the ones who ignore her, but turns into a savage (And an intimidating) beast that looks as if she's going to rip the other dog's face off when it comes to the nosy types. (Hope your following.   scratch ) This is obviously not a good thing; and I don't even want to know what would happen if her leash slipped through my hands...   It takes sometime but I can usually get her to calm down after a couple of jerks to get her attention and having her heel back and forth near the dog she was having issues with. (With the owners consent of course.)

Is there a different way I should be approaching this issue with?

- Thanks so much
Sister

How old is she? Has she ever played with dogs off leash? The reason i ask this, i dont know why but someties koda gets a lil mean or defensive when he and another dog is on leashes. But when they are just running around off leash he is fine with them. If someone can chime in and explain why koda might do that for me or if its common, id appreciate it.

Shiri is one year; so pretty young still. As when I let her off leash? Well, I'd never with only one or two dog's there, however, when I go to the dog beach, or park, and there are numberous dogs, I do. She'll want to play with them, but then run away scared when they chase her back.

My dog is leash reactive/aggressive. She will attack other dogs when she is on leash. We have been working on desensitizing her much like you are already doing. Lots of high value treats for listening to commands while in the presence of other dogs. When your dog is on leash she is losing the flight reflex of fight or flight. If she is nervous with other dogs when off leash and often runs away, by taking her ability to run away out of her options with the leash she automatically turns to her fight reflex.
