We have a 2 year old Yellow Lab who rears up and barks at every dog we see, even a block away or across the lake. She likes them once we put their noses together and then is OK.What can we do to make her quit being aggressive whenever she notices other dogs?

I HAVE A LARGE FEMALE LAB,HER NAMAE IS ABBY. SHE IS NOT AGGRESSIVE TOWARDS PEOPLE. BUT WHEN I WALK HER, SHE CONSTANTLY PULLS TO WALK AHEAD OF ME I AM NOT IN CONTROL AND I WANT TO BE ,FOR HER BENEFIT AND MINE. SHE HAS BEEN TO A DOG TRAINER FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AND THERE WAS NO IMPROVEMENT IN HER ATTITUDE WHEN WALKED.

EVEN WHEN I PICKED HER UP, FROM THE TRAINER, SHE WAS STILL PULLING ON THE TRAINER AND ME. I WAS TOLD TO PUT AN AGGRESSIVE COLLAR ON HER, WHICH I DID, BUT THE ORIGINAL PROBLEM OF HER PULLING IS STILL APPARENT. I TRIED SOME OF THE METHODS I'VE SEEN ON THE DOG WHISPERER, BUT TO NO AVAIL. I WANT TO BE THE ALPHA ONE TO MY DOG AND HAVE A PLEASANT TIME WALKING ABBY. CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME TIPS TO TRY?

Good article. My dog needs to poop whenever we go walking & sometimes, more than once. Is there any way to avoid this & make her learn that she must do that only in her yard. I have a new e-mail address: ambrnme@embarqmail.com Pls. change my records. Thank you.

Great tips. Could you please write a column about retractable leashes. I think they are a major nuisance. It's hard to keep your own dog under control, when someone else's is running towards you unchecked on a retractable leash. We have a lot of problems with this in our neighborhood. My husband and I have three dogs, and each one has gone through obedience training 2-3 classes each. Thanks.
