      HI OMG, My dog was so close to being put down because I thought he was an agressive dog. My friends and family all had their say on how my pooch should be trained and disciplined and some suggestions were not very appropriate. He would pee everywhere , jump up on people but worst of all become agressive to my kids. Short of calling in the dog whisperer himself I found this fantastic guide called the Dog Training Academy that has solved all MY probs and best of all given my beloved dog back to me and my family. Hope this helps and don’t give up on your precious pup, there is help out there. Believe me I know how close I came to losing him.

      Well Good Luck

      Please let me recommend a good dog training course. I have a good dog who was a foster and a holy terror. Several trainers gave up on him. I got this course, followed it to the tee, and now 6 months later he is a dream dog, and I love having him around. You might give it a shot.

      A Wolf-hybrid can be quite skittish and does not respond well to inanimate objects, fast motion, loud noises, or new people. They require much patience. Training is not for the weak and serious consideration should be given prior to obtaining a wolf-hybrid dog as they require firm, consistent training and ample space to roam. If there’s something you find foul and offensive you can bet a wolf dog will roll happily in it and coat themselves in the funk! It is not until a Wolf Hybrid is about 18 months of age, that it will start showing signs of the wolf. Wolfs younger than 18 months of age are adolescents, they are playful and adaptable. They take directions readily and can bond with other species. Young wolves act more like the common dog as they have not developed into maturity. As a wolf grows out of its adolescents, its hormonal system reaches maturity and it will begin to exhibit all of the typical behaviors of the wolf.

      No. I have dealt will true wolf hybrids as well as wolves for over 20 years. They are NOTHING LIKE DOGS..

    11. M D says:

      No.
      Wolf mix dogs are still agressive and territorial. They will need lots of space and training to maintain them. If you have any other pets (ie. cats) you can say goodbye to them now.

      If you leave them you need to provide a "den" room or kennel to make them feel at ease. Large enough to move and stretch, but no bigger then the average bedroom. Expect them to redecorate the place.

      If you are really serious about this you will need to provide training and socialization early and often, or the wolf will come out and you won’t be happy.

      NO ! ! ! ……………….. and while your at it, join a group that discourages the breeding of these dogs………………. PLEASE.

      No, I have some experience with wolf dogs (boarding them) and they very quickly will turn back to their natural instincts. You have to watch them and be careful. I don’t think with kids I would get a wolf they can still be dangerous. I personally don’t think training a wolf necessarily means they will be as obedient as a more domestic dog. So, I would pick out a more domestic dog.

    14. Ashley Say NO to breeding mutts! says:

      A wolf is not a dog and should never be kept as a pet!

      This is just a mauling and death waiting to happen.

    15. BMTHESPIAN says:

      No it isn’t. It isn’t the right dog for any family. A wolf-dog especially a high content is not a dog and isn’t going to behave like a dog. Having one around young children is highly irresponsible. No an in ground fence is not suitable for a wolf-dog or even a regular domestic dog with a high prey drive. Wolf hybrids require a high, buried and ideally topped fence. They will run right through an underground fence without flinching and keep on going.

      No

    17. Rayven ~ Here we Go Again says:

      Heck and no.

      In ground fence is NOT going to work. They need at least 10 ft high and 2-3 ft deep of fencing. High content wolfdogs are NOT like normal dogs.

    18. In the beginning God created evolution. says:

      Before considering a hybrid there are things about wolves you should know. While wolves possess many traits that make them able to be domesticated, they also possess traits that make them difficult to actually keep as pets. I want to make sure you understand this perfectly clearly because a high content hybrid can easily inherit and display many wolfish traits. Owning a wolf is like owning a perpetually small child. They are very needy, they go everywhere with you, and I mean EVERYWHERE. You can’t leave him home alone unless you want your house all pissed up and torn apart.

      Are you sure you want this responsibility? The resilience of the domestic dog is a selectively bred trait that is exceedingly rare in wolves and it is not likely to pass on to a high content hybrid. They don’t tolerate hitting or raised voices. They aren’t very trainable. They do not bond to a new pack so rehoming is not an option. Most wolf rescues will not take a hybrid, and most wolf and hybrid rescues are too full to take any at all. Once you have him you are stuck with an animal with the emotional needs of a 3 year old for 10+ years. If you don’t want a 3 year old child with potentially serious behavioral problems around for the next 10+ years you don’t want a wolf or a hybrid.

      Constant supervision, constant training that never subsides, you can’t give them an inch or they’ll walk all over you. Wolves and high content hybrids possess traits, genes and hormones that govern a hightened aggression, dominance, and prey drive that DO NOT EXIST in the domestic dog. Dogs have been described as wolves in an arrested state of development, because that is exactly what they are. At maturity the dog ceases to develop. Wolves develop genes and hormones that govern an increased aggression, submission, dominance, and prey drive. At maturity it is very common to see a very stark personality change. What was once a fun, playful friend may begin to develop an alpha temperament, and an alpha wolf is truly terrifying to live with. Arbitrary growling, submissive urination, irrational fear of strange people, noises, or objects, snarling, aggressively possessive behaviors (especially over food), and other normal, acceptable behaviors in a wolf are behaviors we would NEVER tolerate in a dog. There is no amount of socializing you can do to change that, and little training. What will you do when he’s around 2 years old and starts challenging your every command and your authority with petulant snarling and snatching sh*t right out of your hands? You can’t banish him outside alone, he’d be heart broken and he would not understand. He will not recover and cope like a dog can.

      Wolves have a much stronger pack structure than dogs, and unlike dogs they ENFORCE it. This includes children. The pecking order is strict. Nips, snarls, and growls are not uncommon should this wolf wish to exert his dominance. This is normal, acceptable behavior. If you want a wolf, you accept this behavior and everybody in the house knows how to handle it before the animal sets foot into your home. Treating him as a domestic dog with petting, hugging, touching of face, feet, ears, belly, or tail, can get your face bitten off. These signs of affection that the people-pleasing domestic dog tolerates and even enjoys are grievous invasions of personal space and may be treated as such by a wolf or high content hybrid. Don’t be offended when those lips curl up and teeth show because somebody wanted to hug him.

      And what about exercise? I’m talking a two hour or longer run every single day at minimum. Wolves routinely travel miles and miles and miles every single day, especially in search of prey. 20 miles a day. Can you provide that? Bikes help, so do moving vehicles with a long lead.

      A proper enclosure is at least an 8 foot fence with razor wire on top and buried 2 feet into the ground. These animals are very athletic and can escape a standard fenced yard with ease.
