    Wow. The whole "can't teach an old dog new tricks" is complete BS, because in just two days, she is a completely different dog.

    I've taken everyones advice, and now she is at the point, where instead of barking at people or going after them, she just slightly growls, in which I still correct her, via slightly pulling on the leash, so soon hopefully she won't be doing that.

    As far as the old drunk man. As much as it pained me, I decided to be the better person in the situation, and since the training was working, I forced myself to be friendly with him as he passed by, and the dog was fine, so I made small talk saying something along the lines of "She's not as agressive towards you anymore. I've been training her, thanks to the internet." and then he proceeded to give me some french bread to give to her. (I know it wasn't poisoned because he had just gotten home from the bakery, and the bread was fresh, and he let me choose one) so I thanked him, and he also let me take a few peaches that he had bought as well, which didn't poison me, so I guess kindness can go a long way, even though I don't like him and I don't like the fact that he was kicking my dog.

    But I suppose, giving him the benefit of the doubt, now that my dog won't be chasing him and trying to bite him while barking at him at an insane decibil level, he won't have any reason to kick her.

    I also have been taking her for walks around the neighborhood as well as jogs, and she has been doing great. I had to get a metal chain leash, because one time when I was talking to a friendly neighbor, she thought it was a toy and in the span of a few minutes, she ripped it in half. Now, she doesn't mind me putting the leash on her at all, she actually gets excited and happy. She will occasionally try to lead me to her food and/or water, for a quick break, and then we continue our walks and jogs.

    Since you all have helped me so much, and clearly there are some professionals in here, I'm wondering if you can give me any advice on how to teach her things such as "sit", and "stay"? The only "trick" she knows, is jumping up on me and standing on her hind legs. I simply pat my hip a few times and she jumps up and let's me hold her front paws while she looks at me happy, but I'd like to teach her more tricks such as "sit" and "stay".

    Thank you in advance.

    Peace & Love,

        Sit and stay are pretty easy to teach but it's tough to explain in writing. Since the dog is responding so well, seek out a private trainer in your area. A 4 to 6 week course will usually be about 100 bux. maybe 150. The knowledge you will gain in those few weeks will be with you and your dog(s) forever. It's well worth the effort and cost.

        We taught. Sit, Stay, Come when called. Down, down/stay, wait. And, if we had time and the class was right, we did bed stays and some long line training.

        Once you know how to do it, it's with you forever.

        Good luck and great that it's working out.

        P.S. I don't like chain leads. I like the plain nylon. If the dog puts it in his mouth or chews it, pull the lead INTO his mouth. Again, easy to show you, hard to explain. Think like a bridle in a horse. If you snap the lead INTO his mouth, generally, they spit it out. After a while, the game is no fun.

        P.S.S. Jumping up is bad. LOL

        Sorry, I can't resist. I loved dog training. When I first started training, I used to see people in the parks with their dogs pulling and tugging on them I would walk up and help out with a little instruction. About 80% just got pissed. Only a very few want to hear it. My mentor used to tell me, "Don't do it for free. It just pisses people off. Once they are paying you for the advice, they open up a lot more. Just like psychiatry.". LOL He was a fucking amazing trainer. He would walk into the training building with 8 or 10 dogs all barking and screaming and all of a sudden.... his presence was noticed. It was like one dog passed it to another. In just a few moments, the room is quiet and all the dogs are looking at him. Fucking spooky, in a way. They KNEW he was the alpha the moment he entered the room. And, it was like that every class, every time. Weird.

        Anyway, good luck.

          Yes sir....

          I remember seeing a dog training show where the trainer yanked hard on the leash when bad behaviour occurred, then once the behaviour started to subside a light tug had the same effect.

          What i like most is that the dog is loved enough to care so much....

            That is called a "leash correction". It is a very quick 'snap" of the leash. You don't pull or tug on the dog. It is supposed to simulate the nip on the back of the neck that Mother doggie would give him if he were misbehaving.

            A leash correction, followed by the command word (stop, hush, quiet, whatever). After a short while, you switch to the command word first, then the leash correction. Eventually, all you need is the command word.

            IME, all dog training prepares for "off leash". All training must be geared towards still being able to give corrections. even without a leash.

            And one very important thing to remember during your training sessions.... treats treats treats. Keep treats in your left hand pocket and always let your dog know treats come from your pocket, not a jar in the cupboard or wherever. Always from YOU and your pocket. I never allowed strangers to give treats to my dog.

            If you do 'formal' training sessions, don't go longer than a half hour at a time. Especially with puppies. The idea is to make it fun for them and they get bored after a short time.

            Wish I could spend a couple hours with you. As I have been told a zillion times, "It changed the relationship between me and my dog". Training is a life changer for you and your dog. Imagine being able to 'talk' to your dog and communicate almost like you can with a human.

            OK,enough for now. LOL

                Good on you, she knows more rules now. So glad to hear things are better with you -and- the neighbor. Relationships are like a stove... unless you put in fuel you won't get any heat.

                      Dogs should not eat bread the yeast gives them a stomach ache chocolate and coffee they can't digest it. It will kill their liver and they will die fast garlic and onion destroys their oxygen carrying red blood cells trident chewing gum is bad very bad instant death almost due to xylitol, avocado is poisonous no cheese or dairy products they are lactose intolerant



                      Be careful what you feed your dog grapes and raisins kill their kidneys salt makes the overly thirsty they can die from drinking too much water yea you can die if you hold your piss long enough or drink too much water at one time before your body can process it your lungs fill with water and you can't absorb oxygen
                      Careful with antifreeze dogs will lick the ground sometimes and you think o its nothing but it could be antifreeze alcohol will help humans digest antifreeze not sure about dogs, or else crystal build up in kidneys can kill them


                      Beer is bad very bad can't digest hops you need dog beer its not real beer
                      Lots of people slowly are harming even killing their pets without knowing

                        I always buy treats that have no corn, wheat, or soy. I had to buy my dog his own couch, he gets jealous if he can't do what I do.
