Aggressive 8 mo. Goldendoodle
My fiance and I bought a goldendoodle from a pet store back in May. He was 3 months old at the time. We brought him home and he was very well behaved until one day we brought him over to a family members house in June. He was sitting under the table chewing on his bone and I reached to grab the bone and he snapped and bit me. This was the first time he every showed aggression of any kind and he drew blood. We immediately put him downstairs and put him in an isolated room.
This triggered more aggressive tendencies and occasions with our dog. He would get ahold of things he knew he should not have - like socks and would growl and snarl if I tried to get them from him. He has even snarled at my mother and my fiance, but the aggression is definitely towards me (the male).
He probably thinks he is the alpha.
Anyways, we just got him neutered and found out he had cryptorchidism and they needed to remove one testicle from his abdomen. Since he has been home the last 5 days, his aggression towards me has gotten worse. He growls anytime I come near him. I don't know what to do and it's heartbreaking. We are planning to have children soon and I don't want to bring that into this until with help our pup.
Should the aggression die down once he heals a bit? Any advice is welcome.
