Kerie U Posted March 21, 2013 Report Share Posted March 21, 2013 Hi there My 6 year old BC (Tasman) was limping today and I asked my father to help me examine his paw. My Dad suggested that I put Tasman on his back so it would be easier to have a look, I held Tasman's mouth while my Dad had a look, then Tasman yelped and wrestled free and tried to bite my fathers throat. I'm not sure if he was really trying to bite his throat but my Dad had a scratch on his face. Tasman has snapped at the vet in the past without making contact and so I hold his mouth when I examine any injury. The only other behaviour like this he has exhibited is snapping at a child that lunged at him about 4 years ago. We do not let small children interact with him because he seems quite fearful of them. I don't really know what to think, was it a bad idea to examine him on his back? Or has my dog got a serious aggression problem? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
