mrbell Posted October 2, 2007 Report Share Posted October 2, 2007 I've tried searching aggresive behavior to no avail. Just thought I'd put that out there. My 15mon. old BC/Aussie Shepard mix has a nasty habit of nipping/biting us. She will come up and nuzzle for a scratch, but whenever you go to scratch her, anywhere, she'll switch modes and bite. She has been neutered and is current on all her shots. She has been to training at Petsmart. We had to pull her out as she would attack the other dogs and bite us when we would try to calm her. I know most folks don't like to give advice of this sort online. She will bite whether or not you look at her while petting. She gets to run in 16 acres of pasture. She plays frisbee, quite well, she outruns me on the four wheeler. She is such a sweet heart, you just can't pet her, even when she acts like she wants one. Another thing. She attacks my four wheeler when I start it, the barn door when I open or close it. She does live with a Pommeranian, he won't even go near her. We got her at 10 weeks old and this behavior has gotten worse. She knows her name, sits, lays, knows to get either the ball or frisbee when you tell her. I am looking into a behaviorist, but is that going to help? By the way, the biting even occurs when the other dog is not even around. Any ideas?
