Re: Don't be lookin' @ ma hosses

A wolf anything is not made to be a human companion. If there is any bonding whatsoever, it is close to a fluke (other than the welcome awarded anyone who shows up regularly with food). Most wolf hybrid / human relations go south pretty fast, which is why all the wolf sanctuaries are full of them, or they are out doing damage like this one.

Re: Don't be lookin' @ ma hosses

It's kind of funny, the current conversation.

Back in the day, when homesteaders iived in soddys almost every family had a pet wolf puppy.

Wonder how those stories ended...

Re: Don't be lookin' @ ma hosses

My grandad had a pet coyote he raised from a pup as a kid. He could never break it from killing chickens, and it had to go.

At the time he was attatched to it, so he sold it to a buddy for half what the bounty was at the time.

He knew what was going to happen, but didn't want to do it himself. In those areas that had bounties I bet more than this one ended up property of the county.

It wouldn't surprise me to find a few litters got raised just for this purpose. Country folk will survive.

If ya wanna change the attitude of a seemingly aggressive male simply turn away from him, sit down and relax. I've been told that this is the strongest of dominant behaviors. It won't be long until the mutt eases up to you.

Note that I haven't personally tried this method. Would appreciate a report from someone who has besides the guy that I heard this from.
I never heard what your saying about turning away but I could see how it could work.

Not a wolf dog but I had a full beard Alaskan malamute male at his prime about 120lbs and built like a brick **** house. I got him as a pup and knew he was going to be around kids a lot so I'd constantly be pulling on his ears lightly and playing with him while he was eating. At first he wouldn't have it so I'd sack him across the snout. He was broke of this very quickly. I played very rough with him but he knew that it was only to be had with me. One day while he was eating I walked up and stuck my hand right in his food to test him and he snapped and growled at me. Boy did I beat the **** out of him. It only took the one beating and for the rest of his life he never once showed his teeth or showed aggression towards anyone! Just to clarify he didn't have any other dogs to protect his food from so no need to be aggressive.

I've always started with a dog showing him I'm boss and there isn't any exception! As others have said if you can't break them from being aggressive from the start you tuck a piece of lead behind their ear.
