I second the idea of a well bred Cocker.

Oh, and definitely go to dog shows, etc. You really don't know as much as you think about a breed from reading, you have to meet the dogs (and owners).

I agree with the suggestions for teaching the recall and no door bolting (they are different things -- bolting is impulse control), fencing or x-penning of the door for safety. I do think you have been remiss in not training your dogs so far. But that's neither here nor there. You are starting from zero and have no where to go but up from here. You MUST put in the time commitment.

I don't think there would be anything wrong with contacting Lou Castle. I haven't used an ecollar myself but have no bias against using them for recall or chasing. Remember that your breed of dogs may very well take up prey chasing when they run off, and this could cause very bad things to happen. I believe you can google him on the internet.

Also, probably such close to normal ALT is less worrisome.

Here's some useful reading from one of my favorite sites, which includes both conventional and somewhat alternative treatments: DogAware: Liver Disease in Dogs

I suggest that any biopsy should be guided by fluorsocopy to the target area(s). I also suggest that her ammonia levels and bile acids be checked. Find out the price of the internal med vet. Perhaps your vet could just consult with her for no fee over what labs should be run?

No response when he growls or snaps. Air snapping is better than biting. Growling is better than air snapping. Try to put yourself in a position where he cannot bite you. Can you give him a puzzle or tug a jug for him to work for some of his food. I would suggest that you also use a leash for on him in the house, just let him drag it around when you are home. Does he startle easily? Do you know how young he was when he was taken from his mother and siblings.

There are vet behaviorists who are quite knowledgeable about behavior. They study more than regular vets. They cost money. You might look for trainer experienced in human aggressive behavior. My trainer costs 75 dollars for the initial hour interview with extensive email and phone backup plus outlined plan, then 55 dollars an hour after that. Get referrals and find out where or how the trainer was taught.

If you would like us to suggest some reading on the subject, we will be happy too. You want to be a benevolent leader and teach your doggie manners, not a dictator.
