Reading this scares the bejeebers out of me because Gucci needs to get spayed in the next few weeks
Is this common for females to get more aggresive? I thought it would be the other way around?
I, personally, would exhaust other options before muzzling, just so that you try to *fix* the sitation, instead of just coping with the situation by muzzling. Have you talked to your trainer about it?
Do you use treats when you are brushing?
My problem with brushing Gucci is that she tries to attack "the brush", and thinks its 'play time'. *sigh* But that's probably my fault for letting her play with brushes to begin with.
Have you talked to your vet about this?
I know when Gucci was stung by a bee, she was *mad* at my husband for a few days (I think she confused that my husband hurt her since he took the bee off her lip) But she did get over it. I had him giving her lots of extra treats (and the really good ones) for a few weeks. How long has it been since the spaying?
I hope you can fix the situation!
My husband would be wanting to get rid of her too, especially after our son was bitten by a neighbors dog last week
