Hi Jane. We have had Chas for only two weeks. He is intelligent and understands commands,Sit and Come here. He will give paw on request.
We are trying to gently train him when he is out with us on walks, trying to focus him more on us than on his obsession with looking round for other dogs.When he sees another dog his hackles go up and there is no distracting him from lungeing and barking quite ferociously. He bites at his back end, it looks irritated and hair loss. The Animal Concern said he had been brought in with lots of fleas in that area and they had treated him, now he has no fleas. He also has fatty lump on left side of his neck
which has been checked out by vet who said it was harmless and is not bothering him or needs treatment...Hope you can help. Thankyou. Christine.
Hi again. Thanks for the reply...will try what you have advised.
If we do manage to become his "pack leader" and he is rehomed permanently will he go back to his old ways with new people ??
