Hagrid is a 4 yr old castrated male. lives with me, 2 children, a springer spaniel, a terrier, 2 cats, 2 horses, sheep and chickens. 2 years ago I suffered a brain injury which did 2 things, kept me in hospital for 2 months, left me with rubbish balance and reduced strength. I also got divorced just after the accident. he has become very protective of me. I struggle to walk him as can't trust him if we meet people with dogs. he is aggressive to other dogs and gets away from me very easily. walk in a muzzle now but he gets it off occasionally. the final straw was when he pulled me over and when I didn't let go....dragged me through the wood to get to the other dog! I am doing well training him to come back to the whistle for food but I need a way to then hang on to him. also need a secure muzzle to let him in field with sheep (do greyhound muzzles fit better?). He goes to doggy daycare once a week for socialisation, he runs around with 10+ other dogs of all breeds/age with no problems at all, they love him! However when they led a dog (that he knew) near us and both were on leads.....both dogs became v tense. so I assume it is a protection issue? any advice would be great. obviously it goes without saying that I totally adore Hagrid!

Hi Naomi.... sorry to hear of your troubles. I don't know if I am able to give you any advice, wish I could.....
All I can say is that in the days when I was a bit more mobile I walked all 4 of my hounds even when I crawled along with a bad back..... After I informed them not to pull they would be fine..... I just wondered if they knew I was in pain..... I used rolled leather choke colours so nothing special there either......
Hoping someone can help with your enquiry xxxxxx

Thank you. He is as good as gold on the lead. Never pulls, just walks to heal as long as no other dogs!
