This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Other

My dog is very laid back and loving. He comes to the office with me every day since he was a puppy. He loves people and other dogs. He never really barks, but will occasionally now, possibly from spending time with our parents dogs who do bark. When he is in the office with me, he likes to lounge on the couch facing the door. Some people come in and he does nothing, not even move- but recently he will growl at some people (even that he is familiar with) and bark at some. There doesn't seem to be a pattern. And he sometimes does it even when they arrive and he is in a different room. How do I figure out the cause and correct? It looks bad to clients.

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household Other

Our female dog is one of three in our house and is a rescue, we adopted her a little over 2 years ago. Since then we have had a baby and a few months ago Peony bit our 1 year old. Print was on the sofa, next to me and our baby put her face next to the dogs face to give her a kiss. The dog growled and I just told her to shush. The baby did it again and Peony bit her, as a warning. I know what I did was wondering and I understand how it happened. The dog is no longer allowed in the sofa and is mostly kept in the kitchen. She seems happy with this arrangement as she has her own bed and is safe from the baby. rnrnToday, while we were out in the park, there were some kids running past my dogs a lot and getting them quite over excited. While over excited, peony grabbed the ankle of one of these kids. The kid is absolutely fine. I know that print was just over excited but I do worry about when my child is if the age when she's always running and excited. I don't know if I can trust Peony and I don't know what to do about it. Is there a way that I can correct this behavior? Or is it intrinsic? How can I navigate around it so that all parties are happy? Thank you in advance.
