i think the dog is having dominance issues and needs to see that you are the boss and not her.
it seems like a 6 month cycle of ok im good.....meh.....grrr....back off! now, i'd agree with spaying helping, but isn't a dog's cycle more often then 6 months?
is it possible your'e not as consistent with commands and training as you hope? maybe it goes well, then gets lenient, then the dog takes over thinking it can? then start over with obedience and repeat..........
Ok here we go.....
Yes, she is by all means having dominance issues with my oldest male dog - that we have already established and agreed on.
As far as the cycle theory goes... it was my VET that came up with that conclusions not me - he explained it all to me and it made since to me at the time and the two of us are still working together on the matter, hence why we finally decided to have her fixed.
P.S. - My VET says dogs can go into heat every 3-4 or every 6 months - it varies per dog, size & breed.
NOPE - it is NOT possible that I am NOT consistent with my discipline with the dogs.... for I have talked to trainers, my vet and I have and still am using the teachings of the Dog Whisperer - I follow every thing he says to the T.
.... all has helped except on this one issue - my VET thinks it might be deep rooted with in her.
My female dog is the perfect dog all other times, just not toward my oldest male dog (and) the trouble seemed to have start when she was in heat and then it just stuck in her head - now we are trying to get it to come un-lodged.
Any Ideals? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
