Small Aggressive Dogs

Small, Aggressive Dogs

Many people do not establish the same rules and expectations for small dogs as they would for larger dogs. It is also harder to find good equipment for small dogs. Ed Frawley discusses some good equipment to use for your small dog.

Leerburg Q&A
Ask your training question

Question: Is the "Finishing Work" video used after training all behaviors, ie: basic obedience, heeling, retrieve, send away, etc. Or is it used after training each behavior?


Need a quick answer if possible. Is the "Finishing Work" video used after training all behaviors, ie: basic obedience, heeling, retrieve, send away, etc. Or is it used after training each behavior?


Cindy's Response:

I think the answer is “it depends.”

It depends on the dog (drive, sensitivity & temperament), the trainer, the experience the trainer has, the goals of the trainer, etc…

As with so many things in training, there is no timeline or absolute for every dog/trainer situation.

On Leerburg's DVDs

I have been buying your videos. I bought the video "Your Puppy 8 Weeks to 8 Months" and  "Establishing Pack Structure with your Puppy." After watching the videos and reading the Dog Bite Q&As, I decided not to bring a new puppy into our home. I have a 7 year old APBT and a little Doberman/Dachshund mix. They get along just fine together but the APBT was attacked by an older dog when she was a puppy so she could be dog aggressive to a new puppy. Rather than rock the boat I decided not to bring home a new puppy.

I love your website. I also have bought several other DVDs and plan to work my APBT in Rally Obedience and another dog we have at my son's house using Michael Ellis videos to train by. Plus some nosework, I bought that video also.

I'm retiring Nov. 29 and plant to spend my time training.

Thanks again. Love your website!!!!!!

The Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers

In the fall of 2012, Michael Ellis will be moving his school for dog trainers to Santa Rosa, CA. The new location is much larger than his current location and will allow Michael to add additional classes and courses to the curriculum. In early 2013, Michael is planning to add a course for military veterans. This course will be specifically tailored to veterans who are getting out of the military.
