Aggressive Growling Black Schnauzer Puppy

by Roni
(Newport Beach, CA)

Ever since my puppy came home at 8 1/2 weeks she has been very vocal. Not just barking and crying, but howls and rolls her barking almost like trying to tell you something. I realize adult dogs do this, but have never seen a puppy do this so early. Another sound she makes is an aggressive growl and bites or nips. She tends to do this often when playing or the playing begins to get rough. I try to give her down time and sleeping breaks, keeping play time to a short sessions. I notice the aggression tends to happen in the evening about an hour before bed time. She gets mad when we won't let her up on the couch and the aggressive growling and biting begins. Does this mean she could become a mean dog when she is older? What is the best remedy to stop this aggressive behavior.

Stop Schnauzer Aggression
by: Adam G. Katz

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.
