hi and welcome to Just answer. I would buy a basket muzzle to use when the young children are around if you can't safely put the dog away in another room. If you can safely put the dog away then I wouold do that.
Your husband is working on obedience training, are you helping with that?
What else are you doing with the dog ? Have you picked up all dishes, toys, bones, etc?
I certainly support and follow the obedience training that my husband is doing. He is retired and has taken it on as his project; I work a full time job, so don't have as much time to work with Mollie as he does.
We have moved food dishes into separate rooms for feeding and pick them up when the dogs are finished. We don't have any bones, and they ignore the few toys we do have laying around.
thank you for that in formartion. I am going to type something up for you but it may take a bit longer than usual as I do have a rather large cut on my finger making it a bit difficult to type quickly and and without error:) So even though you may not see me in typing mode please know that I am typing it on a document to copy paste for fewer errors.
This is a scary situation because of the breed. But in order to get everyone under control you will have to work with all of the dogs in obedience because you want them all to respect you as the leader of the home and the only one who gets to dole out discipline. Definitely pick up all toys, bowls etc. because even though the dogs don’t bother with the toys, you want to have control over them. You are going to start them all on the nothing in life is free diet again so they start to look at you differently and you are putting them on the same playing field. No dog should be attacking any other if you are the leader and to establish yourself as leader you will now be taking control of every aspect of their lives. This will work in addition with the training. If you only train one dog, then it leaves a gap open for another to start with what you are now seeing in the fighter.
I am going to direct you to sites for this diet and it will explain how and why it works, but every one in the home must aide by it. Please remember that dogs do not see children as equal no matter what so there is still that situation to watch for and I would put all the dogs up when you have children around.
Nothing in life is free
NILF being the leader
As it pertains to poop eating, in some cases this is bad habit, in others there is a metabolic issue and I would have the thyroid checked as when this is out of whack , then aggressive behavior can start.
is it understandable to you?
