Bitch trains each dog individually before using her power, making sure they are safe and obey her commands. Due to Bitch's power, she is uniquely qualified to this job, using whistles and shouts to command the dogs, even when empowered.
Rachel has bench mark standard for training her dogs that the animals must meet before they advance in training. Being able to respond to commands and not attacking unless they were explicitly commanded to.
The subjects of her power need to go through an adjustment period before they are used to it's application. thus she usually gives it out in measured doses. Rachel regularly exposes new dogs that come into her care to her power, in small doses, to ensure their health and well being.
The dogs are exposed to their masters power enough and in conflict prone situations that they automatically associate her use of it with a threat.
At the beginning of Worm, Bitch had three well-trained dogs, Brutus, Judas and Angelica. She used them to attack Taylor Hebert when they met, mentioning that they could have ripped out Taylor's throat if she hadn't commanded to hurt rather than kill.
Bitch later uses them to attack a dog-fighting ring, freeing the dogs inside. She trained several of them, adding them to her crew.
The dogs took part in the Battle against Leviathan, distracting Leviathan from Skitter at a crucial moment. Kuro, Bullet, Milk, Stumpy, Brutus, Judas, Axel and Ginger died in the attack, leaving Angelica as the lone survivor among Rachel's senior dogs.
Bitch later engraved their names into the Endbringer monument.
Later, when Bitch is taking her territory she is seen training the new dogs Lucy, Ink, Magic, Roxy, Buddy, Bruno and Socks.
Bastard is gifted to Bitch by the Siberian as part of the serial killers nomination of the dog lover.
Mannequin killed Lucy with two shots from a concealed shotgun when the Undersiders went to warn Panacea about her nomination to the Slaughterhouse Nine. He also attempted to kill Bentley by stabbing him through the skull, unaware that he didn't stab deep enough to injure the real dog's body. Bentley was quickly healed by cutting him out of his monstrous outer body.
Expanding on Taylor's previous advice Bitch began using unnamed puppies as therapy for distressed people, including the kids under the care of Forrest and Charlotte after they'd heard the news about Skitter leaving to become a hero.
Moved her dogs in earth gimel, with mixed results.
After the events of Gold Morning Bitch goes out on a mission to return an abducted child. The new dogs she brings with her are Doon and Colbie as well as a Golden Retriever named Sunny, immaculately cared for by Cassie. Doon is a Foxhound and Colbie is a bloodhound with a strong and extremely loud bark, both scent dogs brought to track the missing child.
Her pack grew and now is paired with a human member of the Sons of Bitch
↑Sirius started to grow. Muscles rippled underneath his black coat, and he yelped, pulling away.
“Couldn’t we maybe get him tranquilized, first?” I asked, watching the lab try to get away, despite the chains binding him.
Bitch held the length of chain in her hands, keeping him in place. “No. My power would burn away the drugs.”
“He doesn’t like it.”
“It takes getting used to. But this is better than what he’d go through if a vet took care of it. Safer.” - Excerpt from Buzz 7.2
↑She turned her attention to Sirius, who was lying prone, his chest heaving. “Heartworms have a bacteria inside them. When they die, the bacteria gets released into the dog. Having a vet treat it is a long process that involves injecting arsenic into muscles and lots of antibiotics. Like this, his body won’t just kill them, but it can kill the disease. He’ll be fine by tomorrow.”
Sirius let out a long, mournful noise, somewhere between a whine and a howl, loud enough that I had to turn my face away and cover my ears.
When I was sure he wasn’t about to do it again, I dropped my hands. I asked Bitch, “Have you done this before?”
She shook her head. “I’ve used my power on most of them, but only a little, to keep them healthy. Sirius is the only one I’ve made this big since Angelica, Brutus, Judas and Rollo.” - Excerpt from Buzz 7.2
↑“Tell me what?” Bitch asked. She glanced around. “Where’s Skitter?”
Nobody volunteered an answer.
“Is she hurt?” Bitch asked. She didn’t even sound concerned. When nobody spoke up, she expanded her question. “Is she dead?”
“Fuck it,” Regent said, “I’ll say it. Skitter’s at the PRT headquarters.”
“So? We break her out.”
“She went there on purpose,” Regent said, almost offhandedly. Carelessly.
Parian couldn’t help but notice the way Bitch clenched her hands, one gripping the metal chain until her knuckles went white.
“Regent,” Grue said.
“What? You don’t want to deliver the news, you don’t get a say in how it’s presented,” Regent retorted
Bentley and the wolf cub both planted their feet further apart, while the pitbull was looking around, all of a sudden.
There. Bentley’s shoulders were bulging slightly. Bitch was using her powers.
Fun fact. I considered Benedict as a name for Rachel’s Terrier in the early chapters, but thought that’d be too heavy handed, and there’s too many ‘b’ names already (though I forgot this when I named Bentley and Bastard). Went with Angelica in the end. - Comment by Wildbow on Crushed 24.1
