You need a behaviorist, not a trainer. This isn't a training issue, it's a behavioral one. There is so much that you've done wrong, I'm sure you realize that now, that the most fair thing for your dog is to spend the money to get a solid plan from a professional that will help the both of you navigate the world safely. He will be the one that pays for your mistakes. If he bites the wrong dog he could be injured or killed. If he bites the dog of someone who is protective of their dog they can call animal control. If they determine that your dog is aggressive it could be lights out. Your first responsibility is to protect your dog.

This could have started from being around aggressive dogs when he was in his fear period, from reaching physical and mental maturity, or feeling the need to defend himself since he was off leash and you weren't right there to defuse a situation. Maybe all of that.

Raising his hackles is not playing. While his dog communications might be good, the other dogs might not have he same skills. Just because you thought your dog was friendly it doesn't mean other dogs thought he was. It doesn't mean that other dogs he approach are friendly.

You've likely caused a wide wake with other dog owners in your area, especially if they have a fearful or reactive dog. You haven't made any mistake that most of us haven't made with our first dog. I made these and so many more. It's how we learn. I swear the gift of having a reactive dog is it's like having a crash course in training, behavior, and etiquette. I went back and apologized to neighbors. They were all understanding.

Don't let him off leash at all. The muzzle will only leave him defensiveness and more likely to get aggressive. Don't let your dog be around other dogs that might be aggressive or cause tense interactions. Until you meet with a behaviorist I wouldn't let him approach another dog.

Find other ways to tire him out. Using their brain is as good as exercise. Get puzzle toys, play fetch inside. Take a Nose Work class. Make him work for meals. Get a Kong and freeze treats in it. If you have a car, car rides where he can sniff out the window. A dog's brain is built to process smells, let him use his brain and nose to find treats hidden in the house. Find a fenced area that you can have to yourselves. My old neighborhood had a fenced tennis court. I used to go there at 1 am so they could run. I found a flood retention area like this where I could take my dogs to let them run safely. I blocked the steps so they couldn't escape. Mix it up. No set pattern of activities. Get creative.

I have Pointers. They were bred to run most of a day while out hunting. They are at the extreme end of high energy. It took years for them to not just stand all day waiting for me to move. They just didn't relax naturally. I used to play fetch up and down stairs. They'd run down and up the stairs to get the ball for hours before getting tired. I would take them to a remote park on a 30' check cord so they could run in circles. With a little practice I could get them running in circles like a circus horse and not get too dizzy myself. My sister gave me a weasel ball toy for them to hunt. I took them to a quality doggie daycare. I took Nose Work classes. We worked on training every night. They worked for everything. After years of living in a second floor condo with no yard I bought a house with a yard. They still need a lot of work to tire themselves out even though they are now 9+ years old. It can be done without letting your dog run loose.

Start saving for medical bills and check that your homeowners insurance covers you if he bites a person. Do not let your dog off leash.

Haha you are welcome! They say it's supposed to feel like kicks, rolls, and butterfly wings, but this is what I feel like is going on in there sometimes:

u/katy_Amourette · 13 pointsr/Delightfullychubby

I just bought my daughter one of these and my chubster started immediately chasing it! Maybe it would help with your chubs :)

u/Weloq · 7 pointsr/gifs

I honestly just googled black people reacting to magic and posted the fun stuff, I was looking for the second one because that never fails to crack me up.

Third one is a weasel toy freaking out the emu (?) and ostrich

just disclaimer some of these toys should only be played with under your supervision so use your best judgement. Check any rubber or stuffed/fabric toys daily for wear and if you see it starting to come apart throw it away as any loose pieces can be swallowed and cause a blockage. My ferrets aren’t chewers they just like to have toys to stash so I’m not as worried but everyone’s ferrets are different so be careful. Also you could make a dig box with rice (never instant) or dried pasta which is a lot of fun for them. They love tunnels, they love to dig, and they love to steal and stash small objects so the toys meet that criteria they’ll be happy lol

When my siamese were much young they had a TON of energy and went crazy over this thing: it would keep them entertained for hours! Maybe that's another toy to add to the pile? It's cheap too which is nice heh

Pull out the big guns. Go for some cat toys or maybe even electronic toys.

Da Bird is like a flirt pole, but it's got feathers that spin as it flies through the air. It's very birdlike. It's not a dog-strength toy and you'll likely have to replace the feathers after she catches it two or three times, but if she likes it, you can attach the feathers to your dog flirt pole maybe.

Something like this or this drives all the dogs absolutely nuts. The first one with the spinning mouse has survived hard beatings from 4 dogs, but mine is an older product bought when things were still good quality... The crazy circle is great unless the dog chews it excessively or pulls the ball out.

The cat toys that are just feathers on a stick drive my Corgi absolutely ballistic. Add a bell to it and it's an overwhelming amount of fun.

Since she seems to get riled up about chasing, you can try a $20 RC car that you can use indoors. You can also try a Weasel Ball.

Final disclaimer: All of these are the type of toys you pull out to play with for an hour and then put away. They require heavy supervision because they're not meant for dogs.

Edit: Holy shit wtf. That bot comment chain is out of control. I didn't even mention the game. ...

I found this one on Amazon

How large would be too large for the tongues? My immediate thought, going the prop route, would be to use these dog toys or these dog toys, covered in a cloth sheath and lit with a black light, with a lead line to pull them into the tree. I'm not familiar with the show, so I can't offer any advice on staging this, but this is my 2 cents.

u/NoodleBurp · 1 pointr/Guitar

Personally this goofy thing is my favorite in this vein. Go into a volume pedal, optional Fuzz Factory or other fuzz pedal, a tremolo maybe, and some crazy delay. Turn some knobs for a good time!

u/Browndogwoof · 1 pointr/tipofmytongue

It's called a weasel ball. Amazon sells them We had one for our dog, but it had a very short life.

u/JeshkaTheLoon · 1 pointr/crappyoffbrands

It's hard to explain. You know those gag toys, a weasel ball?

That's what I mean, minus the tail. Now add a cheap plastic construction that looks sort of like a wide brimmed hat that is open at the top. Put the "hat" on the ground so the "brim" lies flat - previously you attached some cheap-ass dusting cloth to the bottom using velcro or something. Turn the weasel ball on, and place it in the middle of the "hat". Watch it go about its jittery, not very effective cleaning duty.

Sadly, I can't find a picture any longer. They seem to have been replaced by these roomba looking ones.

Edit: looking around a bit, cleaning by use of a "motorised ball"/weasel ball has evolved into basically putting the ball into a colourful microfiber cozy. At least it doesn't look as cheap as that weird construction. You can always claim it is a dog toy.

u/soswinglifeaway · 1 pointr/puppy101

I got it at PetSmart and can't find the same toy on their website or amazon but it's the same concept as this although mine just has a tail thing that extends from the rest of the fabric. The weasel in that product looks like it's attached by a string and doesn't seem like it would last very long!

>any kind of thing that moves by itself.

OMG, I bought my girl a weasel ball thinking it would be a good way to keep her occupied and for her to burn off some energy. Well something about it, I'm thinking the way it moved on it's own, scared the daylights out of her! She would not stop barking at it and would hide behind the couch or a person. She saw me put it away in a closet and she wouldn't go near that closet door for about 2 days!
