Aggressive Redbone Coonhound
I have an 11 year old female redbone coonhound. Almost every time I let her out, she runs to the neighbor's to eat pieces of bread in her yard. I can't get her to stop doing this, and I understand why. It's food. Lol. The problem is that she gets extremely aggressive when I have to pull her away, usually barking, growling, snarling, and baring all her teeth at me. I've gotten used to it, but anyone watching would think she was going to bite me. She also tries to block me from taking her back to our yard. I'm afraid she will bite me if I push her, so I walk around her and try pulling her leash.
Two things...no, we don't have a fenced in yard and probably won't...long story. My neighbor will always put bread out for the birds, although I don't think they get much.
How can I get my dog to listen to me or at least stop being so nasty and aggressive? She doesn't do this in the house when I feed her. One other thing...she NEVER does this when my husband lets her out. If she even TRIES to take off, he yells and she listens and comes inside. When I yell, she ignores me. She obviously respects him and not me. What should I do?
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
