Aggressive Tiny toy poodle
I have a 10 year old male tiny toy poodle. He is aggressive when going to bed at night and if he sits with me and i go to pet him. He has bitten me quite a few times to the point where he has broken skin and drawn blood. I love him to pieces but the aggression is getting worse and I am at my wits end. We just moved to an apartment and he gets crated whenever I go out and at bed time otherwise he will mark his territory. He growls and willingly goes into the crate but continues to growl and tries to bite my fingers as i close the gate to the crate. He does not have this behavior when he is groomed or when I board him. I've spoken to the Vet and his only suggestion was to take him to a dog psychologist for over $100.00 an hour. I noticed this behavior started after he was neutered at about 2 years old. Any suggestions?
