Looking for some advice... I have German shorthaired pointer pup, female, about 4 1/2 months. My female friend has two Border Collies, male and female, around a year and year and half. Take them running/walking with each other a fair bit, The female border collie and my dog get along fine, no issues what so ever. The male Border Collie on the other hand doesn’t happen on every meeting, But randomly attacks my German shorthaired pointer, and when I mean attack first time it happen she went for the neck with her teeth had her pinned down, if I hadn’t have broken it up, don’t think it would have ended well for my German shorthaired pointer, they were both unleashed at the time, The GSP wasn’t pestering or anything the BC. Just went her. So put them both on the leash to try and difuse the incident, again after run, BC pinned the GSP down by the river and again violently attack her, again had to break them up, wouldn’t have ended. Next meeting pretty sure they were fine, think we started with both of them on leads. Don’t think anything happened. We run/walk regularly, just monitor the two dogs, probably happened close to a dozen times now, happen again today, Happened straight up when my friend arrived at my house, hadn’t had really anytime to say Hi, again GSP wasn’t pestering the Bc or anything just went her, broke it up quickly. Started the walk again BC went the GSP, my friend tried to break it up, the BC had a firm grip of my GSP and wouldn’t let go of her head until I broke it up, again think it wouldn’t have ended well, for my GSP. The GSP pup doesn’t know what is going on, just show any anger at all. Apparently just happens with my dog, hasn’t had any issues with any other dogs, just mine. Want to fix problem....before it ends badly. any ideas??? thanks
I have a 1.5 year old desexed male bordercollie and we have a daily dog group who meet after work and let our dogs play off leash at the local oval. My dog has been going since we was 14 weeks old so knows a lot of the local dogs. Recently we have had a huge increase of dogs including a lot of puppies ranging from 16 weeks to 11 months. Recently, my dog has shown aggressive behaviour towards the puppies who constantly lick his face and jump on him. He will tolerate the first few times but then all of a sudden he will snap and lunge and bite them. He hasn’t injured any but I am worried it might get worse. He doesn’t seem to have any patience with younger dogs of any breed and I want to correct it. Is my dog ok with telling the puppies to back off or should I be doing something to fix it? Any advice would help.
I've had Marley since she was six weeks old. She's now 17 weeks. She's a great pup around those she has met, but extremely wary of strangers. The other night I took her to my son's guitar lesson and we were sitting outside when this woman came toward her to pet her. Marley backed up and growled, nearly fell off the porch trying to keep her distance from this woman. About ten minutes later, the woman attempted to pet her again. This time Marley barked and growled and, when the woman walked past, went to nip at her leg! I pulled her away so she couldn't reach the woman. Well, since not all people are bright crayons, some come back for a third try five minutes later. Big mistake. Marley was so upset with this woman I had to hold her back in a bear hug so she wouldn't lunge at her. Marley was so aggressive after this third time, I had to take her away from the situation and other people and she was all happy to just be alone with me in the car. Obviously I cannot condone my puppy's aggressive behavior even though I understand it. What can I do about this behavior to make her less aggressive to people who don't know better than to invade what she seems to feel is her personal space?
