Aggressive Tibetian Spaniel

by Joyce W
(North Carolina)

Tucker who we rescued from the shelter October 2013, is approximately 2-3 years old. He has been neutered. When we first brought him home he adjusted very quickly to our other dog and family. The dogs are on a regular schedule with feeding and are walked 4 times per day. Tucker has multiple toys and we play with him frequently throughout the day. In the past several months, he has developed aggressive behaviors with family, friends, our other dog (Buddy). He growls continuously when Buddy gets close, doesn't always want to go outside, and has even nipped at people. We have even tried anti-anxiety medicines. Do you have any suggestions?

Learn how to give a leash correction
by: Adam G. Katz

Hi, Joyce:

First: You'll want to keep your dog in a crate or a kennel run, when you're not home. Something to make sure that he doesn't get out.

Secondly, I'd recommend learning how to give a leash correction with the training collar-- and then work your dog around your family, with the dog wearing a muzzle. You need to make sure that your family is safe, but at the same time, the dog needs to learn that this behavior is unacceptable.

And finally: Put your dog on a "Nothing In Life Is Free" program, which you can read more about at

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.
