by Tami

He is so sweet, but yet he only listens to us sometimes, he will sit when I tell him, but he won t listen when I tell him no to biteing, or barking, we love him very much and are trying really hard to correct him properly.

Aggressive Border Collie Puppy

Zappa

Zappa

My border collie "Zappa" is 4 1/2 months old. He is very aggressive with his food and his toys. He growls fiercely if you try to get near him when he has them. When I take him to the dog park he just sits on the bench beside me and barks at the other dogs non-stop. He is constantly play nipping with my daughter and my husband (not so much me any more, he listens when I give him a stern "NO".) to the point it's unbearable. He nips and pulls and tugs on my husbands clothes the whole time he is around him. He pulls on his lead when we go for walks, he will actually jump up, grab the leash with his teeth, and proceed to pull ME. I just don't know what to do. He gets plenty of love and exercise, I'm at my wits end. Please Help!

Aggressive Border Collie Puppy Towards An Older Dog

by Robin
(Lewistown, Ohio)

My three month old Border Collie puppy has been in our home for 3 weeks. He is a sweet dog in every way, but he is terrorizing my 16 year-old dachshund. I think he is trying to play with her, but she doesn't want to play and barks and growls at him. He is bigger than she is, so he gets the better of her and rolls her over and roughs her up. He does the same with our 18 year-old house cat. I tell him "No, Zack!" and "Stop!" and he will stop initially, then go right back at it. It drives me nuts. How can I get him to stop this? What he is doing looks exactly like what I saw him doing with his litter-mates when they were playing, but the older dog and cat aren't having any.

What do I do?

Thanks,

Robin

Aggressive Border Collie Puppy

by John P.
(Cornwall)


Hi there, hoping you can advise a little. Our Border Collie is 9 weeks old now. She tends to listen 3/4 of the time when I give her commands and she has playful puppy biting, however when it comes to my partner she's a little more aggressive.

She will occasionally clamp down on her hand and pull like she had a tug toy, often without provication, sometimes if she's even said hello too. It doesn't seem to be getting any less. We've been clicker training for hand to mouth games, strokes etc.. and she;'s being engaged mentally.

This however is crossing the line of what we'd consider as puppy play biting and straying into aggressive. She will listen to me if I command her no or leave but she takes some listenining to with my partner.

We both long term owners of dogs... but our collie here seems to be defying all standard conditioning.

Help!

aggressive border-aussie

by Mary Manzano
(Lisbon, Portugal)


I have 2 month-old border aussie female dog - puppies lost their mom at 2 weeks old.... I have done almost everything a mother dog would do. She is fine health-wise but when she plays and more so with me than with my kids, she bites, and if I reprimand her she growls at me - if I pick her up to crate her, she goes wild and tries to bite me and keeps growling.... she does not show this type of temperament other than when she is playing.

Could I have an aggressive dog on my hands? thanks

Aggressive Border Terrier Pup

90% of the time my new pup is lovely, but the last few days he has started snapping at us, also pulling at our trouses and growling when he is doing it, why is he doing this?

Border Collie Mix

Hi I have a border collie mix puppy who is 9 weeks old. The second day I got her she starting nipping I thought this was normal for a puppy of her age so I let it go. The biting sometimes is soft other times it is hard and it is as if she is trying to attack me. At first I would gently slap her nose but then I felt that that was mean and would make her abusive. So I started spraying her with a spray bottle and for a while that seemed to be working. I want to stop this behavior now before she gets aggressive. She bit my leg a couple of minutes ago and drew some blood. What should I do to help stop the biting and aggression?

Threatened collie X dalmatian

by Holly
(Plymouth UK)

Hi, I have a collie cross Dalmatian puppy. She's 4 months old and is very affectionate to me and my family and always goes over to strangers on walks wagging and wanting to say hello. She's only been going for walks for a couple of weeks and was fine with meeting dogs. She's now started baring her teeth a bit and snapping at some dogs, not all of them though. It tends to be to bigger dogs or when there is more than one dog. Today she played with a border collie puppy for ages in the park fine but then a large dog came bounding over trying to join in and she started to bare her teeth a bit and snap at him. I'm assuming that she's doing this because she feels threatened as it only seems to be to large dogs or more than one dog at a time. How could I stop her from doing this? Please help, she's such a lovely dog otherwise and I'd hate this to be the start of an aggressive dog! Thank you, Holly.

I have a 12 wk old fence line special. Named Ranger! He's been super easy going with sleeping, pretty quick to take commands but today my daughter (7) tried moving him while he was sleeping and he growled at her. I'm pretty concerned. What should I do to him to let him know that's not ok? He's super social as I do home day care!

4 Month old Aussie/Lab/Border Collie Aggressive

by Andrew
(Birdsboro, PA)

Just brought our 4 month old Aussie/Lab/Border Collie (Edith) home last night with our almost 2 yr old Shetland Pomeranian Terrier dog (Archie). She has been shy and has already growled at archie numerous times already and has my wife in a panic. Archie is like her child and is over protective of him. The four of us were in bed and i notice archie trying to mount her but she turned away from him. She then growled at him with her hair sticking up on her back. I immediately pulled her scruff and told her no. Archie tried coming back over to her and she did it again. Not to sure what is going on, she has only been with us for one night and my wife is worried she is going to turn out aggressive towards archie. So at that point i slept with the dog in the guest room since we are getting a crate for her today. Not sure what we did wrong or how to correct the problem. They bother were on the bed next to eachother just fine chewing on there bones. I was even able, without any pushback, to grab her bone right from her face and switch it with archies bone. neither of them turned and went for the one they previously had. Anything I can do to help them bond and be alright so they can atleast roam the house while im home.

Aggressive Border Collie puppy

Hello,

I have a 4 mo. old pure bred border collie, I got as an 11 wk. old pup, who is having some real aggression issues.
Through the years, I had a border collie and also many other breeds of dogs, gone through all the training classes, etc. but never have I had a dog this aggressive.
She attacks my other dog (4 yr.old neutered schnoodle) unprovoked, has bitten me unprovoked, and tries to bite me (hard), sometimes just starts growling, lunges and bites if you try to pet her, wipe her feet, or correct her eating plants, etc. We are trying to figure out any "triggers/patterns" with these scary "fits" and avoid them.

But, I can trim her nails or put my hand in her food bowl or mouth when she is eating, and there is no problem, which is odd considering the other times she acts out for less? She is physically healthy and my vet says this is not normal puppy behavior. He wanted me to videotape the "events" so he could send it to a vet behavior specialist he knows, but it's impossible to do that when it takes both my hands/arms and force to calm her down when she is lunging at me or my other dog. Neither of us believe in sedating the dog or shock collars.

Of note, she can be very sweet and cuddly the next minute, playing happily with my other dog or me, like a switch was turned off/on, if that makes sense?

I just finished a puppy class and I plan to start a basic obedience class somewhere or was thinking maybe this dog needs some 1:1 given the aggression issues? These events seem to always happen at home, with me or my other dog, sometimes with my husband too, but less with him. If she has been crated more on my workdays (I work part time), or is overtired, she seems to be behaving worse, understandably.
I do plan on spaying her in a few mos. The breeder, who has been getting updates on her, has offered me a new puppy from a future litter, but just suggested I euthanize her, which upset me and I don't want to do. I have never given up on any of my dogs and am hoping we can figure it out and work on training her so this behavior resolves.

Thank you.

aggressive border collie- Blue heeler cross puppy

by Cally
(Guelph Ontario Canada )


My dog is about 4-5 months old and has been showing signs of being very aggressive. My little sister was trying to shoo him out of her room and she turned around and tried to bite her and continued to snarl at her. I tried to get him out after and he bit me. He did the same thing when I tried to seperate him and our cat who he was being very aggressive with. Is he going to be naughty like this when he is older? HELP!
