Hi, I'm re-posting this question in the general discussion. I accidentally posted in Introduce Yourself yesterday and thought more folks would see if it here.
Would really like advice!
Griffin growls and barks loudly whenever we see another dog (say, on a walk or at a store) and also growls at Ginny until she gives up whatever toy or chew she has (even if he already has one of the same)
Should I get involved in the interactions between Griffin and Ginny at all?
How can I get Griffin to greet other dogs where it doesn't seem so aggressive?
He's a 1 year old neutered male. Not aggressive at all with people. Just gets ferocious (seeming) when we see dogs. He's never bitten, but I don't allow him to get close because I'm nervous he might!
Is this his way of greeting? Can it be changed? Do I need a trainer?
Does well at doggie day care and boarding, by reports of those people.
He's very sweet and cuddly, btw.
Dave? Karen? Anyone?
