Aggressive Shih Tzu

I got a dog about a week ago and I spent over an hour with him and my other dog. Everything was fine my bf and her 3 year old daughter was there and it was fine, he didn't growl or anything but once I got him home he was a different dog as he tried to bite me and my sister. He has bitten my nephew twice for no reason even if you go to sit by him he will growl the same when we pet him. He is fine with my dog but not with people. What should I do I need help.

Stop Aggressive Shih Tzu Behavior
by: Adam G. Katz

You'll need to start by asking yourself two questions:

1. Does the dog understand that the dog aggression is unwanted behavior?


2. If he understands that he shouldn't be aggressive, then he's choosing to ignore me. In which case, you have a respect issue.

Get a prong collar and a six foot leather leash and learn how to correct your dog in a safe and humane manner. I can guarantee that you'll see an almost immediate, dramatic improvement. Check out to learn more. (You can click on the banner, at right).

And finally: 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.

All the best,
