Aggressive Beagle Mix
I rescued a beagle mix puppy who is approximately 12 weeks old. Recently her nipping has turned into harder biting. We have tried the dog 'yelp' noise and 'NO' when she bites too hard. Any biting is an immediate time out. Today, she has been biting incredibly hard. We have started the bitter apple spray.
We discovered she has a parasite and is on 3 medications to get rid of it. Would that have anything to do with the increase in aggression? What ways can we curb this aggression? Once she receives all her shots we want to get her trained as a therapy dog and that can't be done with biting behaviors.
