Aggressive 18 week female Tibetan Spaniel puppy
Bella has been part of our pack for 2 months now. We have 4 with Bella being the youngest. They all get along fine and deal with her puppy energy very well.
Just in the last 2 weeks during a big growth spirt she has become very nippy when trying to put on leash and now even worse with putting on or off her halter. Tonight it was so serious she drew blood in several places on both my hands.
She has demonstrated this same vicious behavior on several occasions when my 30 year old daughter has picked her up.
I have been trying to submissive train her by holding her down on my lap for 10 to 15 minutes while she struggles and then calms down. Now this is becoming more difficult with serious snarling and biting.
She gets plenty of exercise and perhaps too much stimulation. She eats well is in excellent health.
Soon I will have to bring her in for vaccines and spaying.
I am very worried about how to help her.
