Question: My dog bit me & tore my lip and a couple months ago she bit my daughter in the lip. She isnít a biter so I thought maybe she smelled other dogs on our clothing. She seems sad after each event.

My ten year old Keeshonden bit me and tore my lip. This happened on the same day that I had been playing with another dog up close away from home. I was behind her head and she turned and bit my lip off. I believe it was because I had the smell of the other dog all over me and my dog wasn't looking. The only other time this had happened was a couple of months prior when my dog bit my daughter on the lip (not as hard) after she had been playing with a dog earlier that day at a friend's home. My daughter caught her off guard while the dog was sleeping. I put these two incidents together with the fact that she isn't a biter (other than when we try to take food or garbage) and thought it may have something to do with the other dogs' scents being in our clothing. Could our dog have smelled before seeing? She seemed very sad after each event.

Cindy's Response:

If your dog tries to bite when you take things from her and bites people in the face, she’s a biter.

This is a dog that needs to have rules, training and supervision. Smelling another dog is no excuse for biting people. She’s bitten two members of your family in the face in the last few months, I would be taking this very seriously.

If you would like suggestions on what to do wither her I’d be glad to make some recommendations for training materials. In the meantime, we have a number of eBooks, which include topics that may help you.

on Leerburg's Einstein ET300 Mini Ecollar

Super fast shipping, thanks so much! I never had to resort to using a product like this before, but I was at my wits end with our 10 m.o. cairn terrier pup. We have been using the same training techniques that we used for our last two dogs that resulted in very well behaved dogs, but after more than six months worth of working with our new little guy, he was still not listening anywhere near consistently. He knows the commands that we have taught him, he seems to just choose to ignore them most of the time.

I decided to purchase the ET300 and your DVD on Remote Collar Training. So far, I couldn't be happier. Funny thing is, I have found I actually only have to use the vibrate/tap feature rather than stim for most things. I have done training sessions using the ET300 for loose leash walking and come on recall, and have seen great improvement for both with just the vibration/tap for correction, followed by a treat for positive reinforcement when he does as asked.

I'm also using this for nuisance barking "enough" command. For this one, I have had to use just a very low setting of stim with the nick/momentary function if he's really going nuts and ignores the vibration, but most times just the tap and verbal command gets him to stop, at least temporarily. He then gets a positive reward (treat) as soon as he quiets. This isn't exactly the correct way, but it is working. There are already times when I have let him out and he sees a rabbit, squirrel, another dog, neighbor's horses or cows, that I can just call his name and then give the enough command, after just a couple times of using the Einstein collar. Just a week ago, there was no way he would listen when outside and he saw prey. My neighbors, I'm sure, are grateful.

Love the features of this training collar and results are fast. Highly recommend.
