This is a follow up to my post of two weeks ago. We have contacted the rescue centre where my partner got the dog from. She has given us much the same advice, so we are now in a regime, no more going on the chairs and he has to recognise my partner as the pack leader and not himself. His relationship with our other dog is getting better and she is not creeping into the room and sitting as far away from him as possible, his growling at her is becoming less as well.However, this has not stopped these episodes when he is asleep and wakes up, his whole demeanour changes, his eyes are red ( if that is possible) and he just dives at whoever is closest to him, he has not bitten anybody yet, but we had some friends round earlier this week and this growling went on for about two minutes and it wasn't the same dog. This has nothing to do with us as a couple and we even asked the woman at the rescue centre if he had been abandoned when he was found, she said no, that he had a collar on with the name Doky on it, so obviously someone had owned him and just abandoned him. We wondered if this was flashbacks to a previous time, but at the moment am just trying to calm him down when he has these growling episodes. Wondered whether you could help….
