They want to play, to playbite, and they're teething.

The biggest mistake people make is expecting the poor dogs to understand THEIR human needs!
You gotta speak Dog language!
A pack leader is a MUST. Thats You!
How do you become a pack leader?
Not by being a bully!
You achieve leadership by your actions.
You eat first, when you're finished give some to Mr Dog.
Going through a door? YOU go first, if Mr Dog slips through pull him back and make him wait his turn.
Going for a walk? YOU walk in front!
Meeting other dogs? YOU meet them first!
Thats dog language! No bullying or evil shock collars needed!
Once Mr Dog understands the above most of it can be relaxed.

Do not forget,even Mr.Milan will tell you the same thing that other trainers I have talked to say.....out of every 100 dogs,there are 2 to 3 that you can do nothing with at all. They are just born mean and aggressive,and will stay that way. The one trainer in St.Louis who is a top notch trainer recommended to those people that had those dogs to either A.turn them over to the army or B. Put them down. Those are your options with them.
The Madison County Sheriff's Office said a 5-year-old Rottweiler attacked and killed the 67-year-old Thursday afternoon. Just hours earlier, Riggs had come back from Jackson-Madison County Rabies Control with a brand new friend he thought would be a great companion for him.
"When I got over there at the time, all were upset," Butler said. "I didn't know what had happened, but when I got over there the dog was trying to attack her, and it was just a job to try and get him out of the house. But the sheriff showed up and took care of the rest of it."
Deputies put down the dog, fearing he would attack the people who had gathered outside.
