I require expert advice on some such myths?

Hello friends, while going for daily walks i use to interact with other dog owners and ask about their experience with their dogs. Many times i get confused by some of their believes. I require expert advice on some such myths(or say queries). 1. If u not allow your dog to mate, they turn aggressive. 2. Daily giving non-veg in dog's diet make them aggressive. 3. Many owners use to beat their dogs to discipline them. Any advice most welcome..................

Agressiveness depends on the individual dog and it has nothing to do with foods, my dog is pure non-vegetarian and he is friendly with cats and birds too. Its depends on how you raise your dog, beating dog will make your dog to fear on you but that is not a respect. Hope you can understand between fear and respect. If you have unneutered dog, and not allowed to mate, this may lead behavioral problems but it is very rarely happens.

They are partly true but packaged wrongly. Kindly read my personal opinion as per your points.

1. If your dog has mated before and then you do not allow him to mate and he can smell a female in heat nearby, he will get frustrated and will want to run away to the female which is normal behaviour. In that excitement of smelling the female in heat, the dog can seem aggressive to a person without much experience. Hence neutering any pet dog is highly advisable.

2. Food aggression can develop with some dog specially males and if it has not been correctly as a puppy then yes it can happen. This can be also seen with chew sticks or toys. I guess they are very fond of eat and hence generally seen with it. But again it is also due yo lack of proper obedience training which should be done with all pups.

3. Discipline is very important, but I do not agree with physical/ beating a dog. Unfortunately ppl think discipline is beating someone. A firm no or shaking from the neck shud be eneough. Again due to lack of knowledge people resort to this which is wrong. Pups and dogs are like children and one shud treat them as that when trying to teach them, with love and affection.

Hope the above is of help in clearing the misconceptions.

Mating is a natural requirement of any creature in the planet. Has any human being remain satisfied being unmated? No.Dogs during adolescence can be aggressive towards each other, which is very natural. You can live with a dog who has never mated in his life without any problems. People do complaint that their males has habbit of mounting on their legs. This is a natural behaviour and little assertiveness can help control this problem. Male dogs can also be territorial and they can be potentially wary and aggressive towards a stranger or animal. Male dogs can be aggressive if they feel their territory or pack members ( you and your family ) are in danger.
I and so many other pet owners have been feeding non-vegetarian diet to ur dogs but never have we noticed any sort of aggression in them. A good article shared by Anil Tiwari may be helpful in this: http://rawfed.com/myths/
Beating a dog often prove to be counter-productive. The principle of modern dog training is that the dog has different options but only good behaviour will yield positive results for them. Thus, if your dog exhibits good behaviour, you must reward him with his favourite treat. You'll soon notice your dog making those behaviours their habbits. I've personally experienced this and am not talking in air!
