Unhappy Worried :(

Well a few weeks ago my Cousin her mom and her husband came for a visit and they have a Belgian Sheppard and they were showing me how to get Kasper to stay but Kasper had his leash on and my cousin's husband handled him a little rough I mean he was pulling the leash and Kasper just had that look in his eyes like "what do you want from me" anyway I just hope it didn't scar Kasper and I certainly do not want other people to teach me how to train my dog, just because their dog bites and is aggressive doesn't mean my dog needs the same handling anyway Kasper doesn't really like that leash anymore I am wondering if I should get him another leash because every time I try to put it on he rebels because he thinks I will yank him just like how my cousins husband did anyway I love my pup so much don't know if I am exaggerating but gosh I even find it hard to cut my baby's nails because he complains bout it...

I just hate it when other people try to tell you how to raise your pup gosh they would not do it if it was a child....can you imagine sheesh

does anyone else feel the same way or am I just crazy

Perhaps, a new leash will allow a fresh start..... worth a try. However, my suggestion ( remembering that hindsight is 20/20), is to NEVER allow someone to mistreat your dog. I'm a real pushover when it comes to me, but boy, my hackles go up when they mess with my dogs....... we're their advocates, so it's up to us to make sure they are treated with the love and respect they deserve.

They can't speak for themselves. I think it is important to be their advocate too. I think a new leash would help give a fresh start and a few walks on leash with positive reinforcement.

Sorry Kasper went through this. I would suggest trying to make the leash a good thing again by just holding the leash and treating him if he doesn't react. Then move the leash a little closer and treating til you have the leash clipped on. Then just let him drag it around the house. Basically the same as you might do for a young pup.

Sorry thta Kasper had such a bad experience with that "training". I think getting a new collar or harness will be a fresh start and make it a fun experience when working with him and the new leash/collar. Also when you try to trim his nails, put some peanut butter on the floor and have him lick it to distract him. I am sure he will be fine with your support.

I agree with others.. make the leash a positive association again.. give him lots of treats and lovies when the leash is around or clipped on his collar... make him think the leash = attention, praise, treats, and love.

Thank you so much everyone I am already shopping for another leash
Thanks Miss Carol, the peanut butter is a great idea

Yes you guys are right it's just that it happend so fast I did tell my cousins husband that Kasper did not need that kind of training because he is not an agressive dog nor is he a Belgian sheppard and that I know how to take care of him myself also Kasper is such a sweetie everytime he sees people even my cousins husband he will go back and say hi so now I just keep him by my side because I don't want him to go trhough this ever again I don't understand why people think that when they see a rather large dog well eventho he is a pup that they get intimedated, because he is a sweetheart they just don't know it....

but again I have to be firm and let everyone know that Kasper does not need any training from anyone else and that he deserves to be treated with kindness and respect and if you can't do that then there is the door
