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

Bernie is aggressive when he takes something like food or anything he wants to chew and takes it to his crate or a corner where he can protect it. He will then grown flash his teeth and we have to put a coat over our arm or get a broom to held him back to take the food or object away. It is terrible. He is doing it less often, but it is dangerous. He is the most difficult dog we have ever owned. He has basically torn up our house, chewed on everything in sight. He will walk on a leash, sit and lay down, shake hands, but only if he feels like it. All the methods I have used with my other dogs have failed. I have owned big dogs most of my life, labs, big rescue dogs, even a great pyr mixed with chow, but never had a more challenging dog. He also barks, but that has improved. He is house trained. Is it the breed or us. Can you help?

Hi there! rnrnThe past month every time I try to get Bentley into going into the car or out the front door he has been acting very paranoid and will try to go back into the house. If I am lucky enough to get him to go near the car and open the door he starts to cry and tries to go back into the house. He has never done this before; in fact he used to love going on car rides but now that has stopped. I don't know if this is because it is so hot outside in Arizona but this is very unlike him. rnrnThank You!

I got my dog Hartley from the local shelter last summer. When my fiance' and I first brought him home, he was very scared and timid. He wasn't aggressive at this time. He was found in a puppy mill and had never really been very socialized. In March, we got another dog. They get along fine, but since we've had our other dog (Sid), Hartley has become super aggressive. He has bitten my fiance' in the back of the leg multiple times. He has also bitten my brother and his girlfriend once. We no longer let him out of his crate when other people are over, but that doesn't fix the issue of him biting my fiance'. I feel he is biting out of fear because he is scared of everything. I love him, but am close to taking him back to the shelter where I got him. I'd really appreciate any advice. Thank for your time!

Charlie loves people and is well trained dog in many aspects, very easy at home.rnBig Problem is that taken for a walk or out of the leash he is very aggressive to other dogs both smaller and big ones even more, sometimes smaller kids as well. It is growing problem. I don't know what is the reason and what to do.rnI just want to add that Charlie has very seldom contacts with other dogs socially since just one of our friends have a dog.
