This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Digging Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

My dog is leash reactive. When we're on walks, & he sees a person; he pulls & lunges. When he sees a dog, he lunges, pulls & barks. (He used to not bark but recently has been barking.) Yesterday night, while we were walking him..a dog was passing by. He immediately started lunging, pulling & barking. He was barking like an 'aggressive dog' at the dog. (He has never done this until yesterday) But I don't understand.. he loves dogs & people. He enjoys going to the dog park!

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

My dog does not like any guests in my home. She actually nipped at my friend when she came over. My friend did not act in any threatening manner at all.

My dog is a very friendly dog but when she sees strangers from afar she barks and growls. I've tried to get her to stop doing this but I can't seem to get it right. I need help on how to train her to stop growling and barking at strangers when they're coming up to us. When the strangers get a little closer she starts wagging her tail and becomes okay with them approaching us.

He's vary aggressive to other races like Mexican or African American and we are sure how to help him get over this. We know he was abused. She rescued him from the SPCA. He also cries when he leave and thinks we are never gonna coming back. We have been trying calming meds

I moved down to Clearwater FL from Marion NC. Marion is a super tiny town with no dog park and I didn't have anywhere to take Navi to get her socialized. All she had was another dog who is fairly aggressive. From what I can tell Navi is an Alpha female and she would get aggressive with my other male alpha dog named Madison. We usually would keep them apart, it was never a fight and they would play when she was really young but as she got older her aggression started kicking in. I want to socialize her at a dog park but I don't know if it's a good idea. I don't have the money right now to take her to a proffessional but I was going to walk around the enclosed park with treats and try to get her first steps into being comfortable with so many dogs. She's completely up to date on her shots and she's fixed. I don't know what to bring, do I need her paperwork in case something bad does happen?
