bellatheaussie I was not going to say anything about it this, but it's been over a month and a lot are asking why, what happened. This is probably the worst idea for me to make but I can't keep it a secret for to long. All I ask is to keep the negative and rude comments on a Down low. Ok here goes nothing, What is dog aggression you ask? Well it can be very dangorus there is many different types and forms fear aggression, rage aggression, food aggression, territorial etc: a dog that has any of these is a challenge. Aggression is not something you should take lightly. Bella was classified as a "red zone" case by many of the trainers we went to. We worked are butts off to make sure this girl had a happy life, she was spoiled, loved by many, always smiling: but there was also times when she couldn't be trusted. Bella's aggression was all over the place and we couldn't figure it out. Finally came down to rage aggression after years of working with her. Rage aggression is when the dog acts out not knowing why it's doing it. One minute it'll be fine the next it'll be a whole different dog. It's the most dangorus because it can lead to the dog severely injuring someone or something. So you ask "how where you able to get her to pose for the camera?" Well that took a lot of work, trust and practice. Bella was really patient and she loved doing anything for food. She loved when I took out my camera she always ran to the purple wall and sat there waiting for something to do. she loved it. As the years went on her aggression was getting worse and not better. I am disclosing this because I feel like if I do then I'll be able to openly talk about it with anyone who is dealing with the same situation. not all dogs can be fixed, just like humans some are wired wrong. With all the work put into it not every dog can be saved. Ask any pro trainer or rescue place that's been around a long time and they will tell you. This is hard to talk about but I feel strong enough to do so. Again please leave the hate to a low thank you 60min

  •   taylerrulz I'm so sorry for your loss and dealing with this aggression is so scary! my coppers dad one day just "turned" as they said. And he was put down. I wish they had told me that before I had picked up my puppy. My copper is reactive and has fear aggression and it is humiliating and annoying when people don't understand. Don't let them get to you though! YOU KNOW YOUR DOG more than anyone. And that worried feeling and not being able to trust your dog sometimes is so scary. You know what's best for your situation after years of going through it. Keep your head up! 24min

beingdogly @Forbes puts Dogly on par with @budweiser's famous Super Bowl puppy commercials! Here's a sneak peak at the article..."Whether the subject is vets, pets, or kids, the Super Bowl will be the showcase for all sorts of ads. While we admire their creativity, keep an eye out for other companies out there that may not be as highly advertised, but still spearhead a big mission, making a difference in the world." Thanks Forbes for helping a small start up like Dogly make a big difference! #beingdogly 11h
