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

A male friend has been able to come to my house since Brock was adopted. They interacted well and the friend was able to play with Brock, etc. Now, Brock is aggressive toward this friend and nothing has changed with my friend's behavior. Brock has growled and bitten this friend. Brock has been neutered. How do I get Brock to be friendly with my human friend again?

Watson is not neutered currently and my roommate has a female boxer and a male weiner. We have been living together for 3 months and the dogs have gotten along great up until last week - I am sitting another dog who is around the same age and also male and since he has been in the house my dog Watson and my roommates boxer have gotten into pretty serious fights. Watson cannot even be in the same room with Marley without attempting to attack her. We took the dogs outside and walked them together and gave them treats and they were fine, but something about being off leash, inside the house makes them go at each other's necks. My questions is once the dog I'm sitting leaves in two days will this behavior keep up or will the two dogs go back to normal and be friends? Im getting Watson clipped in a week to see if that also helps. Im very anxious and really do not know what to do if this is permanent change to their behavior around each other. Please help.

I was wondering if you could help me with an issue.rnrnWe reduced a 3rd dog last week and she is showing resource guarding issues when it comes to the dog beds. We have 2 other dogs and she is perfectly fine with them entering the bed when she is not in it and joining them, but she growls when they try to join her in bed.rnrnWe have been very stunned by this one. We have been making her sit and stay before we allow her into the bed, but this is still not helping. Any advice with that one? She is perfectly fine when eating (I make her sit and wait a minute or so before I release her to eat), it is only the guarding of the bed that has been an issue. She also allows my boyfriend and me approach her when she is in bed and love up on her. It is only the dogs when they come over to her when she is already in it.
