My Puppy is Growling

Hello everyone...

Hopefully you can all lead me in the right direction. I have a three 1/2 month old lab pit husky mix. She's more than I could ever ask for.

She normally loves people. A matter of fact just last month I took her into my workplace and she ran around greeting everyone happily.

Fast forward to today, I was watching some youtube and she started growling at the guy on the screen. He was dressed in winter clothes, hat, fluffly jacket etc doing some camping in the snow.

Should I be worried that shes becoming aggressive or is it along the lines of the way he dressed intimidated her or made her nervous because she hasnt seen something like that before.

The growls weren't short either. She really didn't like the guy.

I myself am a dude and she had no abusive past either.

It was a video - no scent and, since dogs don't see the same as we do, your dog probably didn't even know it was a person. She was reacting to an unfamiliar animal that she could not smell and, didn't have any idea what it was or, what it was doing in her house.

She was frustrated and confused, not angry or aggressive, just defensive toward the unknown. Were the guy there in person, then I'd worry but, without scent, the dog was confused is all.

Do you exercise her daily? Mixes with Husky in them tend to growl and show signs of aggression when they are bored and or anxious. It could also be that she did not like that man. My pit only growls and sketchypeople and hes never been wrong at growling. Maybe your Husky is very in tune to humans motives/nature.
