Yorkie And Jack Russel Mix 9 Months Old.

by Stanley
(Sanford, Florida, USA)

We have a cute little female puppy that we got at 8 months she is a rescue dog. She is training quite well except for one thing and that is out of a clear blue sky she will bite my wife.

One instance was I was sitting on the couch with the puppy when my wife walks up to hand me 2 phones, one in each hand when for no apparent reason the pup jumps up and bites her on the arm.

The Pup has nipped at her before, but not so much in an aggressive way. The last time drew blood. Can't figure out why she did that.

What is this, and what must we do to stop this?

Thank you

Stanley

Aggressive Yorkie Mix
by: Adam G. Katz

Hi, Stanley:

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

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

and

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

Get a 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 DogProblems.com 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,
Adam
