You're here because you have concerns about either your dog being aggressive or someone you know is having problems with an aggressive dog. I'm here to tell you, I GET IT! I've lived it! YOU are not alone, I almost euthanized our Gunner due to aggression and changed my mind in the parking lot of the vets for the euthanasia appointment. I've gone as far as one can go... But we had a happy ending.
BEFORE I lived it, if I heard of someone having an aggressive dog, I judged THEM - not the dog. I immediately told them to get a trainer or I preached at them that they did not train enough. They weren't ALPHA enough. I'm here to tell you that AFTER living it - all my thoughts and reactions have changed. My immediate reaction is to test for Hypothyroidism.
I'm not going to promise you that this web page will be YOUR answer. But what I will say is that in two years since I published our true story "Heart Dog - Gunner's Story", I've helped well over 150 dogs (all different breeds and ages) with aggression and only THREE didn't have Hypothyroidism.
Time is of the essence! It's either been a growl that scared you, an unexpected dog fight, your dog snapping at you or maybe you or a family member now has a scar from your dog. Let's get this sorted out NOW!
GIVE ME YOUR TIME! Watch these related videos - OUR story MAY be your story! IF it sounds even REMOTELY close - watch all of these videos and PLEASE consider getting my books. Understand that HYPOTHYROIDISM is progressive and if NOT treated (properly) it will continue to get worse. Also know, and remember, you can NOT train away an illness and many medications will only mask it.

Amazon Review 5 STAR REVIEW: "A heartwarming story of a woman's dedication to her best friend... It isn't just a story of a Doberman, or a dog owner... It's a story of family, love, life, health, partnership, loss, and triumph. It's a story of determination, frustration, and joy. It's about never giving up, when you know that something is wrong."
