Aggressive Shepherd Mix At The Vet
I recently found out my dog has Panis, had to take him to the Opthomolgist to have some tests done, long story short, I think I can understand him being scared of a stranger in his face, but he does seem to be protective of me in the same room so they had asked I wait outside and they ended up having to sedate him to do the tests. There will be more tests like this in the future and they suggested I look into training for his aggressive behavior since sedation is very costly.
He is between 5-7 yrs old neutered and apparently a sheperd mix. He's never aggressive at home and has 2 other dogs he plays with. I'm not sure how to handle his behavior when going to the opthamologist in the future, any idea's especially since I'm on a budget so taking him to the trainer is not really an option for me financially, but neither are his vet bills but he's one of my kids.
