Thank you for the additional information. Has Meg been evaluated by a behaviorist and training options discussed in order to quell this behavior? Has she ever bitten anyone?

Dog Trainer: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 5 months ago

I don't think you would be wrong to consider euthanasia. It's going to be the fastest and most effective way to approach her aggression is going to be euthanasia. That being said, this solution is permanent and we typically only recommend it when all routes have been exhausted. Seldom do behaviorists give an "I don't know" answer to customers unless they've worked heavily with the owner and the pet, including boarded training where the dog is with the behaviorist full-time until the behaviors are addressed. If this has already happened, you may wish to consult with another behaviorist in the area before electing euthanasia. If you choose to go this route, I can help you find one. I'll need your location to be able to assist.

I hope this information has been helpful. I will be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further. Also, before signing off today, please take the time to use the star rating system at the top of the page to leave a rating for me (bottom of the page if using the app). A 5-star rating is appreciated as top notch answers are my focus. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply so that I may help until you’ve received the assistance you need. Until you issue a rating, the website will not compensate me for helping you. You will still be able to chat with me even after issuing a rating at no further charge on this thread.

I will also check in with you over the next few days to be sure you don’t need any additional assistance. If you would like to request me in the future for pet-related questions, you can do so by accessing this page: http://www.justanswer.com/pet/expert-pitrottmommy/?rpt=3800

Im at work she was not bad yesterday on our walk she only went for one dog walked passed few others ok she is so up and down never know what going to do day to day
Dog Trainer: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 5 months ago

I understand. If you'd like my help on finding a 2nd opinion from another behaviorist in your area, please let me know. I think that would be the best route to go before electing a permanent solution.

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
