Aggressive Seven, Screen door-Fearing Macy, and a Territorial Lex
Season 7 | Episode 14 | Seven, Macy, and Lex
Jeff and Kelly Ong purchased their first dog, Kaylie, from a breeder. At first, Jeff and Kelly thought Kaylie’s neurotic behavior of barking, running in circles, etc. was cute, but soon realized it to be annoying. In order to try to trump this behavior, the couple got another dog, named Seven. Seven was aggressive from the beginning and did not balance Kaylie at all. In a third attempt to make the dogs behave better, Jeff and Kelly bought Bella, hoping that three dogs would balance out the dynamic. Bella was calm at first but quickly adapted the bad behaviors of Seven and Kaylie. With the three dogs, the couple faces a daily struggle, especially with Seven. Seven seems to rule the house, and Kelly. He will growl and bark at just about everything. Seven has bitten his owners and bared his teeth several times, so much so that Jeff and Kelly are fearful of what their dogs may do. Three’s a crowd, but Seven’s a nightmare. Can Cesar turn this terror around?
And Dana Collinson’s friend had a dog who had just given birth to a litter of standard poodle puppies. Initially, her husband Mark objected because they already had Blossom, a Shar-Pei. Their two daughters broke into tears thinking they were going to miss out on a puppy. Eventually the Collinson women overruled Mark and they brought Macy home. But, after Macy ran headlong into their screen door, she’s had an aversion to the back door and refuses to go through it. Macy goes out of her way to avoid walking by the door at all. And if someone opens the door, she will run to the bedroom closet and hide for hours. Cesar is called in to coax this poodle over her threshold of fear.
Also Adam Ah You and Jane An adopted Lex, a male Weimaraner, from Friends for Pets Foundation in 2009. Adam and Jane volunteer at the foundation and had walked Lex several times before he got adopted by a young couple. Unfortunately, Lex was returned 24 hours later because he bit the husband's leg. They felt sorry for Lex, and after fostering him for a period, they adopted him. However, his aggression and biting personality followed, often preventing the couple from putting dishes in their dishwasher. If there’s an object on the floor, they can't pick it up because Lex dives for the item and tries to bite their hands. Lex has claimed his territory and the couple is having trouble claiming it back. Cesar comes in to loosen Lex’s hold on Adam and Jane.
