KILO THE EVIL ONE...DAY II


Maybe putting Kilo in the garage wasn't my brightest idea,now I can't get to my car! Kilo is in full attack mode,and aint nobody getting through the door! I've been workin' with him all morning,with only my blood loss as a result.That shepherd is just so worked up,he's turned into Cujo! I'm waiting till after three today and I'll have his old owner stop and try to calm him down. Till then I'm hoofin' it,he's holdin' my Buick hostage.It's either that or open the door and let him go,but I think he'd just take another chunk out of me in the process!

Getting the old owner over is a really good idea. Shepherds develop an incredible family bond and having them 'introduce 'you could work wonders. If he's never been away from his known family then he is suffering a lot of anxiety. Cooping him up in the garage, although it may be your only option fo now, only hightens that. They hate being confined. He's lashing out because he's scared and confused. Patience and soft words are the best way, but not always very quick. Shock collars and high frequency whistles aren't likely to be a good idea while he's in his current state. They may only increase his confusion. A mild dose of doggy tranks in his food isn't a bad idea to calm him short term, but when the drugs are wearing off he is likely to be very irritable. You're a brave and compassionate man and I hope you get through to him.

The gauntlets are probably a good idea for now, with an old leather jacket to protect your arms as well. Be careful about turning your back on him as Sheps are natural hamstringers and are often silent attackers from behind.

Stay careful, man

Cowboy, Thank You friend, I'll try that,right now he is highly distressed for sure,and I found out about the silent attack thing this morning,good thing for heavy levi's and knee high boots there!
We've got a new plan and it might just work I'll post on it later.
The good thing is,when the old owner was around today He was back to his old Kilo self and just muzzled and played with me all morning so it is the seperation thing~

    Quoting kitchenfun1234:
    Two words. Welding Gauntlets.
    I use big thick leather welding gauntlets when dealing with some distressed animals. They save your hands from minor bites.
    You can also get non-violent sound training devices to use when you train him. I saw one that emits a loud noise, (Loud to dogs that is), not so audiable to humans though.
    If used correctly he will soon learn to calm down or endure the noise.
I'm not quite sure what welding gauntlets are, but really thick gloves might work too! I haven't used sound training devices, but I have used other training collars that are remote controlled. It omits a slight shock to the dog. It's more "shock" then shock to the dog. Most hunting dog trainers use them all the time. In the meantime, put some pennies in an empty beer can (I know you have some of those..lol) and use it as a shaker. Also, a spray bottle of water could help as well. AND... remember what I said to you about that muzzle??? Maybe I wasn't just talking about protecting the cats..sounds like you need protecting too!!!

BE CAREFUL!!!! Talk to you soon.

Loveme

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.

Spunky, please be careful! I know that you have a huge heart when it comes to animals, but is this really worth it? Why put yourself in harms way?

You shouldn't've left him alone perhaps you think? its odd he doesn't
remember you though...you know I would love to have him.If I could think up a way, I would ask for him!! I love Alsatians. Their intelligence floors me.

You wrote this v well...enjoyed the tone of regret and wry humor.

spunky11961 replies on 9/1/2006 9:46 pm:
Hey You,Thank You! I know you would,I can remember how you've wrote about them and that special one, I think letting him have some space right now might help though.. I am still interacting with him,and letting him warm up to me He remembers me,but he is really loyal to his last keeper, this is his first full day plus away from him! I think alot of this is from seperation anxiety,His whole world has been turned upside down right now! I'll be patient with him and wait
Thanx Woofff for your kind words here

Dang Spunky, don't get yourself killed over a dog. I can't offer any advice since I've never owned a dog and my and my son's guinea pig never went into attack mode. Good luck, hun and be safe!
