    VaMpeEh:

    Maybe your dog is trying to show she's the Alpha Dog in the "pack". Tapos you said pa that she's spoiled and she's the only one allowed inside the house. Try reading up on dog heirarchy.

    Ang alam ko nga minsan pinapa-kapon yung dog para mabawasan yung pagka aggressive... Kaso female naman yung miniature poodle mo.

    Is she aggressive only to the other dogs in the house? Or to humans or other dogs as well? There are different kinds of aggression kasi -- dominant, spatial (object guarding), territorial, protective, predatory, fear-induced, dog-to-dog, or psychotic aggression. Here's something I read about aggression:

    Aggression is a normal form of canine communication, similar to our anger. It is often seen in dogs who as puppies were dominant and bossy and not given enough structure from their owners. Consider the spoiled dog who is given too much attention. This dog thinks his owner depends on him for leadership; after all, he acts like a servant. When that owner tries to direct or discipline his dog, he is out of line and like a delinquent child, must be reprimanded. Because dogs can't send sassy owners to their room, they snap, growl, or bite. Same concept, different communication. This, however, is not the only type of aggression. It comes in many other forms.

    Aggression between dogs occurs when they perceive their territories as overlapping (this can happen anywhere because some dogs think their territory is very extensive) or there is a heirarchical struggle in a multi-dog household. It is often exaggerated by well-meaning owners who scream or pull back when their dog is showing aggression. This only adds to the tension.
    The problem kasi here (sa Philippines) is that wala naman yatang professionals (mga dog psych) to resolve these problems. Even mga puppy kindergarten class wala yata (this teaches them to socialize at a very young age). http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/IIworry.gif Try to ask for your vet's opinion. Maybe he can shed some light on dog behavior and aggression, and what you can do to help the situation. Or try finding a book that talks about it. Usually the ones on raising and training dogs. I have several kasi but even if I find something about it, it would probably be too long to post here. Unless I copy them and send them to you or something! http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/wacky.gif

    I read something on how to settle disputes ng dog-to-dog aggression but I don't know lang if it's true. I never really tried it kasi wala naman kaming problem sa house. We have 4 dogs (2 big ones). Sometimes may aggression, but not to the point of hurting the other dogs. Anyway the author of the book suggests paying more attention to the Top Dog. Why? He says "disputes arise when you undermine their organization by paying more attention to the underdog. The lead dog is frustrated and the underdog is confused. To calm things down, pay more attention to the Top Dog. Feed, greet, and play with him first and most. Spend time training him. The other dog will follow. If they fight, praise the Top Dog and ignore the other. I know it sounds cruel and it's hard (I had to do it), but trust me, it works. If you're having difficulty, bring in a professional."

    Like I said...I haven't tried it! http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/biglaugh.gif All I can say is, aggression is no joke. I just hope your dog doesn't learn to bite people eventually! http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/GRRRR.gif

    Good luck!

    eto i have a question for those who have more than one dog, we have three poodles, yung dalawa mag-ina (toy poodles) and the other one miniature poodle. the miniature poodle always 'attacks' the other two, minsan for no reason at all... they go near her and she attacks them.

    we suspect jealousy on the part of the minipoodle. is there a way to fix this pa? (btw all the dogs are 7+ human yrs already) kasi the other two get wounded eh.

    VaMpeEh: We have the same problem as urs we have 5 shih-tzus and they are all related except one. three sisters (Tsina,Tita and Tyra), one niece (Martina, daughter of tsina) and the other one not related at all (Bogart). Tita keeps on attacking Martina for no reason at all and when Tita attacks martina, her younger sister Tyra attacks martina also and to top it all off Martina has an enlarged Heart Problem. Everytime she gets attacked by Tita, she also has her heart attacks where she can't breathe at all.
    We are dumbfounded as to why Tita keeps on attacking Martina.. We suspect jealousy also but Tita should not get jealous of Martina since she is spoiled by my sister, she goes everywhere my sister goes even to the banks, restos, office, etc.. We have another theory as to why Tita keeps on attacking martina, we think that Tita is insecure of Martina because Martina is prettier than her and her father is an American and Phil Grand Champ. While Tita's father has no title. We dont think that it can be fixed anymore .. what we do is everytime that Martina and Tita are together we dont pay attention to anyone of them so as not to cause any conflict between them.

    KingTriton:

    Ralph (my Beagle) is not imported. His father was though. I actually didn't plan on showing in the beginning. I just wanted a Beagle. I looked in the ads tapos his breeder was the first one I visited. He was the first puppy they showed me and I just fell in love with him! http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/bolletje.gif I didn't go to other breeders anymore. http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/biglaugh.gif Nagkataon lang that he was nice and the breeder suggested showing him. But I didn't start until he was 8 months old na, so we started kinda late. But still, he managed to earn his points in record time! http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/wacky.gif

    About importing dogs naman, I asked about this na before sa PCCI. It's not that hard yata. You need to get some forms and stuff. Inquire ka sa PCCI para sure. I don't remember all the requirements kasi. I think if you're gonna bring home the puppy yourself, it's like paying for extra baggage lang. That's what my friend did. But if you have the puppy shipped here, hindi ko lang sure how much it would cost. http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/IIworry.gif Like I said, ask PCCi to be sure. Baka kasi nag iba na yung mga requirements. If you need their number I'll email it to you.

    nikolai: thanks for the info!

    come to think of it, we spoiled her a little too much (well kami ng brother ko), sometimes when we play with her, it's funny, she attacks my brother! kinakagat niya, pero para bang playful-type na attack. she doesn't attack me though. baka kasi mas spoiled siya sa brother ko.

    oh and by the way, yeah, she's the eldest in the 'pack'.

    as for the other two, yung isa (her name's honey) may heart problem din. she used to be spoiled din, kaya lang nung nagka heart attack siya and we almost lost her, parang naging distant ang mga tao sa household namin sa kanya. siguro dahil din sa trauma (sadness of losing a dog). so yun medyo naging hindi na sila masyado nilalaro ng mga ppl sa hse namin. kawawa naman noh?

    VaMpeEh: Sorry kung medyo napahaba yung last post ko, hehe! http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/wacky.gif Anyway I hope nakatulong siya kahit konti! Kawawa naman yung dog niyo...nagkasakit na nga, di pa pinapansin... Just kidding... My other German Shepherd died of heart failure (name niya Nikolai, hence the nick! ). Favorite namin siya so it was hard for all of us to lose him. http://www.pinoyexchange.com/crying.gif

    Hi! I am very confused which to buy-- a shi tzu or a mini pincher.. Can anyone help me?

    Hi mamaco! I guess it depends on your personality and lifestyle. Since both are small dogs, I guess the size of your place will not matter as much (of course bigger dogs need more space). Do you have a busy life? Coz obviously long-haired dogs will require more grooming, while a shorter-haired dog may require only a quick brushing a couple of times a week. Get the picture? http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/wacky.gif

    What about the other members of your household? Have you asked them which of your choices they prefer? Dogs thrive on love and attention and will quickly sense when a person dislikes them (plus they might resort to bad behavior http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net5/IIworry.gif ).

    Anyway, here are some links for the breed profiles of the Miniature Pinscher and the Shih Tzu. They might help you with your decision.

    Miniature Pinscher:

    Shih Tzu:

    If you need more information, search ka lang on the net (dog breed profiles). I'm sure you'll find everything you'll need to know. Good luck!

    ADA have you found your Shih Tzu yet? I know the originator or Shih Tzu in the Philippines Penny Friedlander. Find her you can't go wrong with the shih Tzu from her.

    If not I found a list of Shih Tzu Breeders in the site of PSTC Philippine Shih Tzu Club I think. http://www.dog-tracker.com

    Good luck

    BTW, how do I change my password

    Penny Cham-Friedlander is one of the best Shih-Tzu breeders in the Philippines, if not the best. She is also very nice. Her Kennel , Achilles has produced the most # of Shih Tzu Champions in the country. Her puppies are mostly show quality dogs so the prices for her dogs tend to be quite high, if u just intend to have your shih-tzu for a pet better go to other breeders but if u want the best then go to Penny Friedlander. I dont know if she is really the originator of Shi-Tzu's in the Phils, i read in the PSTC handbook that it was Benjamin Romualdez Jr. who owned the first Shih-Tzu in the country.

    I think we've discussed flea and tick problems here before. Anyway, Frontline Spray is a good product to use, but kinda expensive. You can also try giving your dogs a flea and tick bath. OR look for the damn things yourself, hehehe. But seriously, we had a bad tick problem before and it helped to look for them by hand and put them in a bottle containing rubbing alcohol. At least I got rid of most of them. Then I gave the dogs a flea and tick bath. Problem solved. Oh before I forget... You'll have to clean the living area of the dogs too.

    I got this from the first page of this thread, so you won't have a hard time looking for it:

    Originally posted by nikolai:
    akasha: I believe we have Malatayon sprayed once in a while around the garden. Nagka problem din kami before with ticks and fleas...I'm allergic to fleas pa naman!!! Have you tried giving your dogs a flea bath? I use Asuntol (Bay-o-Pet). I usually dissolve the packet (15 grams) in 5 liters of water (I can use this na on a few dogs). Then I get a big tub (or palanggana) and let the dog sit in it and pour the solution on him little by little, but be careful around the face area (eyes, ears...). As I do this I try to look for all the ticks I can find (at least while the dog is sitting there nabababad na rin siya). I don't rinse him off after. Although if it's a long-haired dog you can dry him off with a towel. Usually if we find any ticks or fleas we give the dogs a flea bath and repeat the treatment after a few days. In my case the flea bath usually helps. We also use a defogger inside the rooms (coz our dogs stay indoors). But we usually buy these in the US. I heard Frontline spray (or spot treatment) is also good daw. I have some but have never actually tried it yet. No need to pa naman kasi. Or ask your dog's vet what he recommends. If the damn things keep coming back maybe you should clean and spray more often, as a preventive measure. Don't wait for them to come back nalang. Good luck! I hate them too...
    Hope that helps! Good luck!

    domdom: Thanks so much for the info! I'll try to look for her. Regarding your password, you can change it here.

    KingTriton: Any idea how much their Shih Tzu's cost?

    Was anyone able to watch the Balitang K episode on unusual collections? They first couple they featured had around 40 shih tzu's and they're actually the kind I'm looking for. I didn't get the complete name of the couple but their first names are Jane and Arvie. Help!

    Can someone also supply the number of PCCI? Thanks.
