Toy poodle over protective

Chester brown toy poodle and freinds

I have a male toy poodle and he has had 4 seizures in 12 months, so I had him neutered and he has been on meds for seizures for the past 4 days and its been 2 weeks since his been neutered.

His appetite has increased abundantly in 2 weeks, I have to buy a new collar. Before this he was a picky eater and had only just started to gain a little weight.

I've also experienced this week he has become aggressive towards my son and girlfriend if he is sitting on my knee and they have approached me.
He snarled and growled at them which I knocked him off my knee and told him off and put him in another room for a while.

Is this normal behavior after neutering, and how do I stop it?

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

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,
