"My dog ​​is too aggressive. I start dreaming about the day it will be over" The pressure

When a Brit bought a dog four years ago, she was overjoyed. The bitch was of the desired breed – a German shepherd – and she was just perfect. The first six months went very well: the four-legged friend took part in the training sessions, the socialization… everything according to the textbook.

Then things started to change.

The German shepherd became aggressive, first towards other dogs and later towards people. At this point, the lady’s life turned into a nightmare: it was impossible to walk the dog in the city during rush hour because the risk of attacking someone was too high. Impossible long walks on the beach, in the park, in nature… Impossible even to invite the grandchildren home, since the German shepherd hates both adults and children.

“Actually, we can no longer receive anyone at home, and in fact nobody comes to visit us anymore,” enthused the woman in an online forum. “I feel like a prisoner.”

The wife is fed up with carrying the dog around in the first place, but she cannot escape it as the four-legged friend is too energetic to stay at home. He tried consulting two behavioral scientists and four trainers, but nothing changed. They told her it all depended on how she dealt with the animal’s behavior. Accommodation is not an option as the dog is aggressive.

Halfway through her post, she admits, “It’s awful but I’m fantasizing about the moment when she’ll be gone. I feel terribly guilty because I adore her and she adores me, but I can’t imagine living like that. “Ten years to go. Because of him I miss a lot of opportunities to be with my grandchildren. I think of the places we can’t go, the days he ruined me, his constant barking and constant guard. . . I can not stand it anymore”.

The other forum users reacted surprisingly calmly to such a brutal confession. There are two dominant schools of thought: those that suggest changing vets, trainers, or behaviorists, and those that invite you to try managing the dog without deluding yourself that it can change.

On the other hand, few have come to the conclusion that the lady mentioned, namely that the best solution – for her and for the German Shepherd – is to suppress her four-legged partner.

The discussion in the forum is still active. In an update, the owner said she gave her dog CBD oil (with cannabis) which seems to be working: the animal slept on New Year’s Eve while there were fireworks outside. The lady clarified that she sees suppression as a last resort, which CBD oil may be averting right now.
