Aggressive service dog
I am a 100% disabled veteran that has a service dog. I got him when he was 7 wks old and he is 3 yrs old now. He is part Black Lab and part Newfie and weighs in at 100 lbs. He and I went through all the training together,(20months),and he goes where I go, he is never left alone at home.
I also have a couple cats, one is 5 years old, the other is 11 years old. Two weekends ago the dog attacked the 5 year old cat and almost killed her. His possession aggression of his food, treats, water, toys seems to be growing. He also snapped at the wife's hand recently when she went to pick up a piece of food he had taken out of the kitchen. I on the other hand can take his food bowl away while he eats, take a toy away, take a treat away, put my hand in his mouth without problems.
I am at my wits end on this issue. I need this dog for my military injuries to function daily, but I can't have the dog attacking other animals, or God forbid a child while out in a store. Is there any hope for this dog?
