Otis the Fear Biting Mal
Otis was a young Malinois that was fearful of many situations. He had jumped out of a moving car window and also landed a fairly severe bite on his owner when I first met him. He was extremely fearful of new people and situations. When backed into a corner with nowhere to run he would resort to fighting. After months of working with Otis and his owners we were able to teach him how to predict and navigate meeting new people and encountering new places. Here is a video of Otis on the first day I met him and another of him several months later. I wish I had documented more of the training process with him. We had a lot of frustration and bad days but in the end Otis turned into one of the best pet Malinois I've ever met. I absolutely love that dog.
