I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. Before that, worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai from 1993-2007. Also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation.

This blog is for aboriginal breed enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah) and INDog-mix mongrels are featured here. The two are NOT the same, do please read the text on the right to understand the difference. Our aim: to create awareness about the primitive natural breed called the Indian Pariah Dog/INDog. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too.

Aggression




I've written a couple of posts earlier on aggression between dogs. Here's another one.

This is a nasty bite Deepa suffered while playing with a neighbour's pet dogs in Doerflingen, Switzerland.
The biter was a big German Shepherd, known for being jealous around other dogs.

The owner's second dog is Deepa's friend and regular playmate. The GSD is normally leashed during these play sessions, but unfortunately the owner left him off-leash that day.


Owners of aggressive dogs need to be extra-careful not to put other dogs or people at risk. And above all they should invest in some canine behaviour counselling and training!
