Dog Agressive Beagle

My Beagle, Lexi, is semidog agressive. She gets caught up on other dogs when we're walking and if there is a dog roaming and it tries to sniff her, her hair stainds up and she tries to make herself look bigger. She does not like my labx(if he looks like something else, I would love to hear what!) and lunges for his throat with her teeth bared when he tries to get her to chase him. He knows he can out run her though and once he stops, she does too, although she is tense afterwards. Do you all have any tips for me? Here is a video dimenstrating them playing(if I can get it to work...): YouTube - TeBow and Lexi.wmv

That doesn't look like aggression to me. That's how Cleo plays all the time. Every Beagle I have had the pleasure of being around would join a game of chase every time. I have found that scent tracking breeds all act like this. Missy isn't fully trained but will follow Cleo and Betty when they get on a good track. When one shows signs of running either in play, or on a track, they all join in.

i think she looks semi-annoyed with him and that she seems really interested in what is on the other side of the fence...

it is not uncommon tho for a dog to be more reactive while on a leash. when another dog comes to sniff her, what do you do? a tight leash tends to increase the dog's tension overall, and correcting her while on the leash can too. (if you do )

Seems like she is guarding that bowl on the other side. Not sure why you let it go on for 2 min's, as it just re enforces the issues. You are noit correcting her at all, so just letting her do as she pleases, which is have food aggression/guarding issues.

I don't think it looks like play, her body language is all wrong for play. She is guarding what ever is left in the bowl on the other side of the fence.

I agree with tankstar that it looks like she is guarding "HER" bowl. notice how after she chases the dog away she goes right back to the same spot and looks at her bowl.

Most dogs can become more reactive on the leash as fawkese mentioned, because they feel they have no 'out'.

sorry i have no tips, i am not the best with training advice

I took the bowl away after I realized that she was not going to leave it alone and that was the last half of the vid. I know that Bow is in no banger as she's out of shape and too fat to run for long. They do this everytime I let him our of the dog run into the yard and he goes to play with her but she just tries to herd him back in.

I dont think its aggression its probably borderline annoying/guarding and trust me this is not bad..I have a dog who would have actually grabbed the other one and done some damage.

Corrections are a no no, rather remove the object she is guarding, or even just step in and play with the bigger dog, getting his/her attention away from the beagle. I have two dogs who get annoyed with each other so they just rarely play and it works out fine.

Sorry I guess to each their own. But I find it bad. I would not allow my dog to be that "guardy" of something on the other side of a fence. I have lots of dogs here often (actually have my neighbour's dog in the back yard with my dog) they have to share water bowls. wouldn't work well if he was guarding his bowl.

I don't see why corrections are a no no? as she is the master and they are dogs.

Sorry I meant the extent of her behavior is not bad, it could be worse.

Corrections are a no no because most people have no idea how to properly do corrections... if a dog is guarding something you simply remove it and now the dog have nothing to guard...That is a simple teaching technique in itself...if I remove something from my dogs for fussing over it with one another, then give it back later and take it away if they act up again eventually they learn "If I act like a jerk to the other dog when I have this fun thing, mom takes it away, but if I behave and share, it stays"

dogs guard because they are afraid the other animal/person is going to TAKE their thing, corrections will generally make that feeling worse or more intense, thus making the behavior worse. It would be better to convince the dog that no one is going to take their thing.

I cannot view your video. If its resource guarding, I can walk you through it, but I'd rather view it myself later when Iam on a computer that will let me.
