Aggressive Miniature Dachshund
(Jacksonville, FL USA)
I have a five year dachshund that has always been somewhat aggressive towards children and other dogs. We recently brought home an 8 week golden retriever. It has only been three days, but my dachshund is constantly barking, growling, showing her teeth, and snipping at the golden. Sometimes, my dachshund will sprint towards the golden and show aggresion. Sometimes, my dachshund will hide under the couch and then snip at the golden when the golden comes near her.
During the day, while at work, they are seperated. I've been trying to give both dogs the same amount of attention. But not able to have them together. I have no idea what to do! Any suggestions?
It seems like my dachshund is acting this way out of jealously, but sometimes she seems to act that way out of fear.
