Well, when it comes to dealing with dog aggression--and having owned five Tosas I know a thing or two about it--I have a few simple rules:

Shun dog parks or other areas where my dog is likely to come in contact with off-leash dogs.

Always carry a breaking stick

Keep my dog away from any dog that is remotely likely to provoke an aggressive response in my dog.

I have always fed Jake twice a day but now that I've switched to raw food it would be easier just to feed him once. Are there any pros or cons to a single daily feeding I should be aware of?

Your life will be easier. As long as you can handle those puppy eyes pleading for food you're good. If it gets to you throw him a little kibble for the other meal.

 

Jan, you really carry a breaking stick? Wouldn't that be considered paraphernalia where you are?

Haha okay does it make a difference if I feed him morning, afternoon, or evening?

Don't think so, but do a little research and see what others do.

I am not aware of any local laws governing that matter. Seems pretty stupid to classify a device meant to stop dogfights as "dogfighting paraphernalia." Of course, so are treadmills--if a human exercises on one it's salutary, exercise your dog on one and you're up to no good! In any event, I see cops all the time when I'm out with the dog, and none have ever hassled me about it. Of course, I don't exactly fit the image of the street-punk dogfighter!

Curiously, this very morning I encountered a police car in the middle of a park where I commonly walk Cyrus. I asked the officer what brought the forces of the law to the middle of the park. He replied that a man had kicked his dog for being disobedient. Some passers-by took exception to this, and some sort of fracas ensued. While I am not altogether opposed to corporal punishment for dogs, kicking seems a poor way to do it.

By breaking stick do you mean a short thick peice that you insert in the back of the mouth and twist to lever the jaw open? Or is it something else?

I think those eyes are saying, "now that you're feeding me foie gras, can we talk about the bed situation?"

A bulldog is recovering at home in Oklahoma after a run-in with a porcupine left her with a face full of quills.

Three-year-old Bella Mae was rooting around a backyard pond with two other dogs last week when she spooked the spiky critter, her owners, Jerry and Allison Noles, told local News 9.

The porcupine impaled all three dogs, but Bella took the brunt of the attack.

Animal Emergency Center of Norma Bella Mae, a bulldog who tagnled with a porcupine and ended up in the emergency room.

She was rushed to the Animal Emergency Center of Norman, where it took a doctor and two nurses two hours to pluck more than 500 quills from her face, mouth and feet, the hospital said on its Facebook page.

Ouch!! The only 2 creatures I have a hard time understanding their existance is mosquitos and porkies. Most bird hunters I know shoot porkies on sight, me included. Only in locations where legal of course. Although most bird hunters with dogs that I know do so in all states with the SSS rule. Shoot, Shovel and Shutup. Personally I don't want another dog to dig one up even if dead and throw them high off the ground in the fork of a tree.

^^ Justified.

 

Dog snapped at the woman then ran at cop. Whether or not the situation was serious, the dog was unleashed on a crowded street and aggressively moving toward the perceived threat. The cop had a moment to react and made the right choice. The pepper spray may have been unnecessary. 

 

Why that drugged out guy has a dog is beyond me, but what are you going to do?
