Things have been progressing nicely since my last post. His growling at me or the family has deminished considerably. He seems to be conforming to "the new rules." His agression, however, has been re-directed to other dogs--namely my father-in-laws. And a Vezsla bitch.
Tonight I took him to a buddies Chessie bitch(85 lbs worth) to see if he would posture the same. It didn't take but one swipe of her paw to put him in his place. He was a different dog after that. Maybe he just needed a good arse-kickin to check the ego.
Tonight I also ordered a DVD geared especially to Chessies by a guy with a reputation that proceeds him. Go to www.goldplatedgundogs.com
to check it out. Will post further comments about video and further training and "breaking in" processes. Later.
