eising foxhoundCathy's seven-year-old pet "mostly-foxhound"

Five-and-a-half years ago, Cathy Eising asked our experts how she could steady her two-year-old pet “mostly-foxhound” on deer and other riot, so she could walk him in the woods off lead. She evidently achieved some success, since she has contacted us with another challenging question. The foxhound is now a seven-year-old.

Cathy asks, “How can I prevent his aggression towards other dogs who are invited into our house by me with their owners? I would like to be able to have friends bring their dogs when visiting and not have fights.”

Thank you, I appreciate the support from the community. The dog I inquire about is the pup of a foxhound you wrote an article about in 2011, titled "Foxhound nurses baby foxes". This article is how I heard about foxhuntinglife as it was reprinted in a local paper where I used to live near ( Goldens Bridge Hounds).

I have had success with a couple of visiting dogs using what I learned here. Seeing the problem as jealousy not aggression made the most difference. I've been keeping him and visiting dog on leash until ground rules are established and he demonstrates relaxed body language. I have also asked visiting humans to limit affection toward him as this is a way he takes control ( he takes ownership on visiting dogs owner).
Thank you again for the help,

Wanted to add: I got a lot out of your previous recommendations and have had success walking him off leash under certain conditions. I use an e-collar, keep him on a drag line and need to have line of sight. I to use the e-collar to get his attention BEFORE he gets too engaged in a chase, keeps me on my toes, always an adventure. Thanks for your help, I appreciate perspective and expertise.
