Aggressive German Shepherd

by Elizabeth R.
(Newberry FL)

I have a 9 yo Female Dachshund, a 1 1/2 yo female GSD and a 10 month old male Dachshund, all spayed. The 9 yo Doxie was queen of he domain. As the GSD got older she continued to play a bit to roughly for the Doxie and so the Doxie started hiding/avoiding her but they still got along ok. The 10 month old Doxie and the GSD get along great, very playful, no problems. The older female Doxie will walk away when things get to rough or she wants to be left alone. If this is not respected she growls. The GSD has gotten more and more aggressive towards her and has attached her several times, not causing serious injury but scaring her badly and she has bitten her This is not constant behavior, just occasional. The rest of the time the GSD is sweet to the older Doxie but will turn without noticeable provocation. It seems to be getting worse and I think it's only a matter of time before the older Doxie gets seriously hurt or worse but I don't know what to do. I don't have the funds to hire an animal behavior trainer but I know I need to do something soon.

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.
