Tips on training feisty 7 yr frail Jack Russell?
Banger is now in his 3rd home via Blue Cross. He is loving and serene in the home. Outside he barks and lunges at other dogs, cars, bikes etc. He be attacked (on his lead) in the first couple of weeks by a Staffie who drew blood A few weeks later he was surrounded by 3 docile labroadors ... adjectives of them in a field off their lead including Banger;;after just a general sniff around he then leap on a very docile dog and had to be pulled off. Recently he attacked a childlike dog who took his ball (No effort by the other person to control their dog even tho I asked her to) Another time he run the full length of the field back to a Golden Retriever that he had be ok with earlier and then after a prompt sniff attacked him ... We go to training and use the treat/reward system for recall and obedience which works without fault if he is not distracted by other dogs and rabbits! Any bright ideas?
No dog is born next to good manners. Pooping on the carpet, leaping enthusiastically onto guests, pulling so concrete he practically yanks your arm out of the socket when on walks--that's all impeccably acceptable in the canine world. It's up to you to teach your dog to act the way we humans want him to. Not training your dog and expecting him to be pleasant to live with is like never sending your child to university and expecting him to ace the SATs.
here are some guidelines:
