Leerburg's Online Basic Dog Obedience with Ed Frawley

Leerburg has a good course here. I have only been training dogs on my own now for 3 years, and this course [Basic Dog Obedience] is very informative. I hope Leerburg continues with this online course training. I take classes as my work schedule permits, and taking this in the evenings after work was perfect.

Question: My 14 month old German Shepherd is usually very playful. About 6 weeks ago we moved and his behavior has changed. He has become cranky and has even snapped at my son. I corrected him strongly and now he just goes in his crate and sleeps. I don’t think he’s sick. Did I break our bond?

Hello, Cindy. I have a 14 months old GSD. He is usually very playful. Loves training and engages fairly well at home. About 6 weeks ago we moved out from our house due to remodeling. His normal routine used to be spending all day next to me while I worked at my desk, play in the evening. Since we moved it changed. At first he was fine with our moving. In couple of weeks he started to get cranky and edgy, even snaped at my son. I corrected him very strongly. By slapping him on his muzzle and putting him in crate. I am trying to keep him with me more and have somewhat old routine back. After that he seemed to calm down. He is not as protective and not agressive anymore, but now he is opposite. He is very quiet, not very motivated to do any obedience, not too much interest in food. He just goes in his crate and sleeps. He plays some with ball, but not with his toys in house like he used to.I don't think he is sick.Why did he change, age?Too harsh of correction? Our bond is broken? Thanks.

Cindy's Response:

I'd get him in to a vet for a thorough check up. It sounds like he may have some hidden medical issue going on.

I hope this helps,
Cindy Rhodes

Response:

Hello, Cindy. I took your advise and went to see a vet the same day. I would like to thank you VERY MUCH!!! He did have a health issue! He was diagnosed with ehrlichia, a tick borne dissise. Vet thinks it is in its early stage and prognoses should be good. I was very shocked that he had it, because I am very precise on time with his preventative meds. Normally I would suspect something is wrong with his health; but since we just moved, everybody thought that the move changed him. I can't thank you enough for your advise!!! THANK YOU AGAIN!!!

On Leerburg's Dominant Dog Collar ™

   
  This collar makes it simple to take the dog out for a quick potty break and works as a good backup/training collar for our prong session. I've only had our prong collar fall off once, but with the DDC I don't have to worry about my dog getting off leash in the city. I've used this on a 'strong-willed' dog and with it on she is easily controlled with little corrections. Please READ and UNDERSTAND how this collar is to be used and worn.
