Female dogs (bitches) are more protective than males. Males seem to want
the foreign dog to come on it so they can hump it. lol ... or try to...
Female dogs are protecting their dens ... there
territory, their puppies and so on. They are not friendly with other dogs, male
or female cause they do not want anything from them, unless!!!! They are
in heat. When in heat then it is "come on in guys and lets see which one of
you is not intimidated by me?
the male stud dog must be able to bark louder than
the bitch (so too speak). a male stud must be intimidating and mean it until he
gets what he wants. Fights might insue but only enough to put the females in
their place. Once the female is undercontrol and only then, can the male safely
negotiate the breeding. if the female is not thoroughly submissive to the male
this female may turn on the male while the male is "hooked up" and tear or harm
To teach a female who has been top dog in a kennel and on a farm to be nice
to other dogs may be difficult, but not impossible. Sooner/Odessa is only four
or five so you have plenty of time to teach her to behave.
usually a dog will not fight or is intimidated to
approach another dog (foreigner) on territory that is not
theirs. Trainers use that to our advantage and take the female
off her territory to a dog class. usually you will see that the aggressive
female is now uncertain and will not act so tuff.
When she finds out that it is OK (by the owner) to
bark or attack strange dogs then humans begin to think that the dog is
protecting them. Most humans enjoy this and encourage it or laugh about it.
the dog has an aggressive gene and is usually a
female but can be either sex if the owner has taught his dog to be aggressive by
allowing the dog to be that way (maybe unknowingly).
Since I know you and I know that you will not allow
her to be that way when you are there, she will not be that way in your
sooner/Odessa is very aware of her owners presence
and will not do anything wrong at all When you are around or if there is
a leash attached to her collar. Try me out ... she is very wise.
You will be able to go around all dogs ... but
watch her! A small dog is prey as we allowed our dogs to kill squirrels
and possums and such...
This is an instinct you cannot take out of the
canine. You may modify it but you cannot ever take it out of a canine.
I hope this has helped you.
