We got our female havanese from a breeder exactly one week ago. She's now 10 weeks old. My wife & I both work, so we have setup a small gated area for her with her crate, potty area, toys & water.

She's been having less accidents (almost all of her accidents have been poo) so we feel like we've been making progress.

When she's not in her little play area, we always hold her inside the house. She's never allowed to roam around the house unless she's being held.

Yesterday when I came home from work, I felt like it was a little too cold for her to go outside, so I thought I'd play with her inside the house. This was the first time I put her down outside her play area. She started showing sings of aggression... Biting, growling, barking.... Even when I picked her up, she was biting, growling.... I took her outside; she wasn't very active and wanted to come back in. I think maybe because it's a little cold? After I brought her in, she was still being aggressive. This morning the bad behavior continued.

Any advice? We're first time dog owners and I'm sure we're making several mistakes.
