How do I make my Dog Mean?

A friend recently got himself two growing Alsatians- male and female about 5-8mths old. He is determined to make them mean and ferocious so they are kept in strict isolation. Initially they were kept separate but he felt this might hurt them emotionally and in turn affect their overall growth hence, reversal.

He has not heard anything that even mimics a bark and they notoriously court affection always. Useful tips on how to turn these wimps into effective security dogs are welcome. My friend is not a pet-keeping kind so a role change for them is not an option.

^^ We have an Alsatian, feeding him once a day doesn't make him more aggressive. It's no use feeding a non-working dog more than once a day.

Locking up or isolating a dog doesn't help either, that same dog may turn on you and your family.

What does work is training and discipline. Alsatians are work dogs and easy to train; I trained our dog to sit in a matter of hours. I've also taught him not to run to strangers in a friendly way - while I know he's investigating and checking out the visitor, I'm teaching him to be aloof. At night he is far less friendly than during the day, especially if one of us isn't escorting the visitor.

I know you can make a dog more aggressive by

-feeding it once a day (dont know if this works with alsatians)

-keeping them away and isolated during the day, let them loose at night (I mean isolation, no human traffic near their cage)

If do not want the dog to be aggressive towards anybody in your household, have your household feed the dogs. They should also play with the dogs, pet and discipline them.

Touch hiss/her private parts five times daily, at intervals of three three hours, do that for three weeks, and also, make sure you rub his/her eyes with your sperm, do that for ten days and you will see the result.

I hear that makes the dropping watery and messy. It can only make the handler mean. Hardly the dog.

Sometimes I wonder if the practice of veterinary is regulated in Nigeria. Who do you report to (apart from the police that is) when you have been conned? Anyway proving vaccine fraud in Nigeria is next to impossible. For now let them keep on enjoying free money.

Since my friend does not have to worry about a child jumping over an 8 foot fence with military spec barb wire in the middle of the night, I figure you do not have any suggestion relevant to discourse? Or do you?

Even in your house Pennywise. If you raise a vicious dog and invite people over and the dog mauls a child, you could end up in jail. Your friend needs to pay someone to train his dogs to be guard dogs.

Hey Sim,

I agree with you 100% on this one. 

I think the dogs should be given proper training and not isolated.  There's absolutely no need to breed dogs with the sole aim of making them vicious and dangerous.  Over here, you could end up in jail if your dangerous dog bites someone.

Maybe a Staffordshire Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa or a Rottweiler is what they need if they really wanted a vicious dog.

Why not just let them grow up?  They'll protect your home when they're older.

The dog is suppossed be friendly with the his own and his family and protect the house against stranger.

If a robber want steal your house, and y have a dog in the door, he might choose another house to steal or he might give meat with poisonoss to kill the dog, that's why during the trainning y should teach him don't accept nothing from strangers.

Dog is like human being. Would you like to stay in a prision (isolate in some place and alone)? no, so why do you do it with the dog ?

A friend of mine had a dog that fear firelights , in his mind, for the dog lost his fear, thinking that he was helping the dog, he put the dog inside a small room and the oustide of the room and start/on/active a lot of firelights , whats happened ? the dog died of heart attack

I think you are doing wrong. Is not good leave the dog in strict isolation, he might became over agressive and crazy, then he might bit you and people around the house in a particular moment.

If you want a bodyguard dog, you must TRAIN YOUR DOG

Dog Training Tips

Be Positive -- It is necessary to use positive reinforcement when you train your dog or puppy by offering some dog treats and a lot of praise if he performs something correctly. During the initial training sessions you can offer both verbal praise as well as treats. Remember, this is fun!

Firm and Friendly -- When you give commands such as heel and come, you want to use a happy, friendly voice. On the other hand, you will want a lower, firmer voice for sit, down, and stay.

Start Young…but not too early - The ideal time to start training begins at six to eight weeks, maybe even earlier depending on the puppy. But remember, it’s never too late to teach a dog a new trick.

Don’t Rub His Nose in It - Though it may be tempting to rub your dog’s nose in his accident or swat him with a rolled up newspaper. Punishing your dog is not really a desired form of dog training. The only thing this will do in the end is teach your dog a serious problem--to become afraid of you. Do you think your dog should come over as you call if he thinks you are simply going to whack him or stick his nose into the carpet?

Be Patient - Patience is key when you work with your dog or puppy. If you feel like you’re at the end of your leash before you’ve even started, don’t attempt to train your dog. Your dog is incredibly smart and will pick up on your emotions. Remember, this is fun!

Keep it Short - Fifteen minutes or so is about the right time for learning simple commands, so focus on a single command a session and end it on a positive note. If your dog or pup has successfully done the command several times in a row remember to lavish him with praise. After the dog training session, spend some time playing. He will associate time with you as positive and anticipate his training.

No Distractions - Try to pick a quiet spot free of distractions when training your dog to do tricks or commands. A secluded back yard or an inside room works best. If there are other pets in the family, put them up so they won’t interfere with training.

And Remember, This is Fun! - Dog training, of course, ought to be a pleasant time for you and Fido. The time can be used to bond closely with your dog and learn each other’s personalities. When you do this, you will not only have a well-trained dog or puppy, but a longtime, loyal companion and friend.

But those must be pet dogs. I had a mixed breed alsatian-labrador. Very lovely beautiful pet I invested so much emotionally on. It had all the shots given by qualified reputable vets but died a short time latter. Very frustrating. Any particular kind you like?

Thanks mate. Barking is coming on and it looks like the isolation thing is working. My friend got a gash from the male when he came too close.And no he doesnt want a third dog because feeding these creatures can take its toll on your finances. Infact he is considering castration for the male even though I suspect the real reason may be retribution. By the way, they are back in separation.

. . . at that age what i will advise is that your friend should get a third dog that is already vicious as a playmate for those two he already has, even if it's a mongrel. They will gradually learn from the new dog
