(Martins Ferry, Ohio)
I have a 6 month old dachshund and he has moments when he turns vicious. At first I thought it was due to bones laying around, but he just bit me trying to pick him up to go outside. He was just sitting on the couch watching tv and when my husband walked over to pet him and he snapped at him. When I went over to pick him up to put him in his crate and he bit my hand and arm. He has been doing this a lot lately and I don't know what else to do. Swatting at his behind doesn't help.
