Our mission is to guard the welfare of all Weimaraners in South Carolina by providing science-based information to owners; assisting families rehoming their dog; obtaining custody of all Weimaraners held in shelters; and rehoming those dogs by applying modern assessment techniques to match dogs to families to optimize success and the well-being of all.
The following dog introduction information was provided by Sindar Kennel Boarding & Behavior www.sindarkennel.com
When introducing dogs:
Introductions are best done outdoors, not indoors. When dogs experience fear, the flight-flight response immediately kicks in. (SAM axis) http://dogzombie.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-rough-guide-to-fight-or-flight.html Being outdoors gives dogs more of a sense of being able to “fly away” then does being in an enclosed room. If a dog does not feel he/she can retreat when afraid, they will offensively aggress (fight).
If a fight were to unexpectedly break out after you remove the leads, a garden hose sprayed directly in the faces of the dogs stops a dog fight very effectively and keeps the humans safe. Also, you can grab the back two legs of the dogs and pull them apart and away, like a wheelbarrow. Never, ever, reach into a dog fight near the dog’s heads!Type your paragraph here.
