This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Other

For years we have been trying to groom shamus. He is very vicious on the grooming table and off it. We have gone through a number of groomersrnand after a period of time none of them wanted to good him anymore due to his rnaggressive behavior. Even being muzzled it has not helped much. The last groomer would not finish him unless he was given a shot to put him out to finish rngrooming him and both my husband and I did not agree with that. Even though we try to make it a happy experience at hom for him it does not help either. What is strange is that he is so sweet with people, other dogs and children and comes from a reputable breeder and that shamus's parents are both champions.rnrnAt this point we need some professional help to cure this unpleasant experience.rnrnAnything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated!rnrnRegards,rnKevin and Barbee Joy Hallrn203-878-0346rnkbinbusiness@aol.com

Hello,rnrnI have three dogs, Millie (Corgi/Collie), Perla (Corgi Mix), Luna (Cocker Spaniel). And Millie simply does not get along with Luna whatsoever. We adopted Perla first, then Millie and after 1.5 years or so we brought in Luna. Millie and Perla have absolutely no problem with each other and are essentially best friends. However, Millie has a very vicious aggression towards Luna and attacks her. We have had to get surgery on Luna for her ears as they are easy targets for Millie and has left bloody messes. We first thought it was a jealousy problem, because whenever Luna would get attention, whether it be from us (the owners) or company that would come over she would immediately attack Luna. We were able to leave the dogs together without any supervision as long as no dogs received attention, there would be no fights. After 9 months, the aggression has gotten more sporadic and millie attacks luna whenever she sees her. We have bought a muzzle, but that obviously won't stop the attacks, it only prevents biting. rnrnOn a side note, Millie is a huge attention hog and wants to be the center of attention at all times and is the dominant of the three. I have no idea what to do and I'm running out of ideas and I am not willing to hire a trainer. Please help, and thank you. I hope to hear from you soon.

We had our son in December 2014. Capone has become very tense since then. He has growled at our son while we have been sitting with him and Capone on the ground. I am wondering what we can do to help Capone to adjust to the baby.

I've had maxy ever since she was a puppy, I even brought her with me to colorado. I had 3 other dogs at my other home that didnt come up with her so she was getting lonley and my fiance just bought a new puppy. She is a Siberian Husky and shes only 7 weeks. She loves maxy but everytime she tries to go by her or try to play maxy growls and tries to bite her. I've separated them and sometimes they do get along but most of the time maxy is very agressive. I dont want to have to send her back with my family so any tips? Im at a lost here, i dont wanna give any of them away.
