Introducing a new dog to a resident dog who might be aggressive?

I have a 21 month old Blue Heeler. I work long shifts, so I thought it would be nice if he had a friend to play with at home. My dog spends a lot of time with other dogs. I’ve seen him try to be bossy and territorial, especially if another animal is trying to get my attention. Mostly though he plays very well. He has a lot of energy to burn. I’ve read about how to introduce a new dog to a resident. I might even enlist a dog trainer to help since my dog is aggressive. What I want to know is whether anyone has an opinion about what kind of dog is likely to get along with my Heeler (who is 60 pounds). I was thinking a female dog who is a few pounds smaller. Then my friend suggested a larger dog with a very laid back personality. She doesn’t think my dog shouldn’t be the alpha, but I don’t think that’s a good idea. Any opinions?
This is a question about which dog would get along with my Heeler. I don’t want any opinions about whether my dog will harm another dog. We’ve babysat other dogs at my house, and he ‘s been fine with them. Besides, I said I was going to enlist the help of a professional. So please no opinions about my dog or my personal situation. Thanks.

Betty asks…

How long should I be walking my dogs each day?

I have a 5 month old Great Dane and a 2 year old shepherd mix. The dane is very low energy, but my mix has a lot of energy. Im not going to lie, I haven’t been that great with walking them so far, but we are turning over a new leaf in our home. The dogs do really well walking together, but I really don’t know how long I should be walking them for each day. I would like to walk them twice a day, in the morning and at night.

New Niche Finder answers:

As you have discovered, Great Danes do not require a lot of exercise and are quite happy to lie around the house all day.

The most important factor when exercising dogs is to keep the exercise REGULAR.

The dogs don’t mind if its an hour every day or five hours every day but it should be roughly the same EVERY day.

There is nothing worse than taking your dogs for a five minute walk around the nearest lamp-post five days a week followed by a ten mile hike on Saturday and Sunday.

Decide how long you are prepared to walk every day, be realistic and not too ambitious. Take your dogs for these walks, building up the time and distance slowly if it is different to their present routine. When they get used to their new walk, you will find that the Great Dane will stay close to you, conserving energy and the German Shepherd will run around like a maniac.

If you are walking your dogs twice a day, each walk should be for at least twenty minutes, half an hour or an hour would be better for you and the dogs but, like I said before, be realistic, especially as winter and the dark evenings are approaching.

Mary asks…

Can dogs be cursed and affect the people they live with?

Ive heard of people doing curses on areas, and that its not really logicial, but my sister brought home a dog, and the thought of it is eerie. Its somewhat scary.

Can dogs bring a curse upon the people of the household?

It sounds crazy, but i really wanna know, because ive heard of people who disturbed burial grounds and were cursed and possessed.

Any thoughts Yahoo?

Idk, i don’t believe that stuff but I never faced it. I think if I ever disturb a grave and get cursed, I bet I start to believe then wont I?

Laura asks…

How can i get my dog to stop peeing in the house? He is over 2 years old.?

Every time we come home the dog peed in the house

New Niche Finder answers:

Go to the vet and make sure its not a medical problem. If your dog was potty trained and suddenly stopped, he may not be able to help it. Also, never teach a puppy to pee anywhere inside. (on a newspaper, pad, anything) because its very hard to train that out of them when you decide you don’t want to clean up their gross pee stained whatever anymore and you’d really rather have them going outside.

But, assuming your dog was just never potty trained, you need to have someone be at home as often as possible to be there when your dog pees on the floor. Unless you catch him in the act of peeing and say no, and take him outside where he can finish there, it will be very hard to potty train him.

When a dog relieves itself in your yard, or whatever desired location, praise it with a few strokes on the head and back and a cheerful voice letting the animal know it did something good. It doesn’t hurt to even give it a treat on occasion after the desired behavior. The trick with both of these methods is repetition. Dogs are very smart animals at any age and will quickly learn behaviors such as this
