OK I have another question how can we keep our GSD from Eating her dog house She has chew toys but is 10 months old and will chew everything she can get her mouth around needless to say she is not allowed to be in the house without someone watching her ever second. Will she grow out of this. I pray because I Love her but cannot afford to keep a roof over her head if she is just going to chew things up.

I have a 10 month old GSD that is well over 52 pounds maybe even 60 by now. She is taken to an outside kennel in the mornings by my husband to be feed around 5;00 a.m. after I wake up I go out to get her. I have to use a lead collar or she jerks me to the ground, if not on a leash she runs across the farm fields like she has never been out. When called she will not come. A wireless fence is in our near future she also jumps up on me and my husband when we go to get her to bring into the house whick has caused some injuries like a torn lip from her nails which are clipped. just her size how can I stop her from jumping I have tried putting my hand on her head and saying a firm NO, I have also tried putting up my knee but I'm 5 ft. tall so the knee doesn't even touch her. how can we get her to stop jumping. She is taken on daily walks for at least 45 minutes. I am now trying to train her to ring a bell to go outside. She will go ring the bell and we take her out but she will only pee we stay out for about 15 minutes then bring her in after being in for about 5 minutes we are cleaning up a pile of poo because for some reason she hasn't learned to do that outside unless she is left in her outside Kennel for a couple of hours. Are we doing this right. or should we just stay outside until she goes.

This was a very helpful article. I have two female pitbulls that are very aggressive toward one another. I can not have them in the same room. I feel from reading this article is that the youngest one(which came to me when my sister moved in and bought her son's dog, but when she left did not take the dog then threatened to have her destroyed)did not have the proper training while she was with my nephew and I had no part of this process so when she came to me she knew me but was not trained by me. Now my dog which is a couple months older is pretty calm but when she is approached by the other dog in an aggressive manner she responds in the same manner which results with me having to break up a fight. I have asked my sister or her son to get their dog but they keep threatening to take her to the pound and having her destroyed. I am going to take some of the advise in this article and try to become the leader of the pack. Hopefully this will start to allow me to spend quality time with both dogs at the same time. I love Queen the youngest but I can't keep allowing her to attack my dog Bluka. I have spent money after money having Bluka stitched and fixed due to the attacks from Queen. If anyone can contact me from the Cesar Milan camp with more helpful tips PLEEEEEEEAAAAASSSSSEEEEE do so I am desperate!!!!!

Okay? I understand about Rules, Boundaries, Limitations, Walking, Having calm assertive energy. etc. But, not all dogs bare their teeth and growl before they bite!What are the different non-verbal signals that dogs use that we should recognize?

I'd say observe your dog. Observe how they respond throughout the day. Tail wagging, does not necessarily mean he/she is happy. Look for other signals, ears pricked forward, eyes focused on you. When at the dog park or in public watch how the dog behaves with other dogs. Does the hackles go up, or does she/he enter a neutral ground relaxed and calm? When the dog is being walked is she/he walking you or does she walk by your side keeping her head low, and tail low, ears relaxed, and eyes forward. This stuff is in Ceaser's book. It was very useful.

I was disappointed with this article because I thought I was reading something that would give me solid signals I could use on my dog, like motioning. It didn't talk about nonverbal signals, just how you should treat your dog. Good advice, but not what I was looking for. Why is this article called "Nonverbal Signals Every Dog Owner Should learn?"

my husband teases our german shepherd chow mix sometimes he talk nice other times he calls him names he is aggressive toward him, our dog sees me as the pack leader and protects me , he will say things to our dog like "my mamma' "my Mamma" until he growls then yells. Or he will say look I can make him bark and growl without uttering a word. Then the dog will go crazy and then he yells! How can I make my husband understand this is not good behavior especially when we are trying to indroduce a new small breed puppy to the home. He blames the dogs breed for his behavior and suggests a shock collar, which I will never do! Please help me

This article is misleading. He didn't talk about any nonverbal signals, just about 'pack mentality.' I was looking for solid signals to give dogs, like body position, etc. I'm disappointed.

I thought this article was great. I LOVE Cesar Milan. We share our household with nine dogs of all ages, sizes and shapes and have learned so much since following Cesar's philosopy of dog psychology. LIVING WITH NINE DOGS on a daily basis, I KNOW he is dead on when it comes to dog behavior because I have tried it true. We are one big happy stable pack thanks to Cesar. No, I cant streetwalk all nine dogs at once (and forget about rollerblading), but we have an acre with a 500 foot walking trail on the perimeter where I "run with the pack" (or walk), usually many times a day. They love it and so do I. I always keep a calm assertive energy with them and truly believe in EXERCISE, DISCIPLINE THEN AFFECTION. Thanks Cesar and DogChannel for educating us and taking seriously how much we all love our dogs.
