Dog Training Questions Answered by the Experts!
Whole Dog Journals training expert answers readers questions about problem dog behavior, curious behavior, and questionable products.
I love the Whole Dog Journal and have implemented many of your positive dog training techniques and suggestions with our dog, Izzy. I hope that you may be able to further help us with her issue. Izzy is a wonderful 31/2-year-old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie-mix. Shes super smart and well-trained, with lots of energy and a constant need for learning and exercise. In the last couple years, however, her canine aggression has gotten to be a problem (Im guessing its a protective instinct). She barks (like a yell) and confronts people in a number of situations.
