Need Advice: 6 Month Old Baby ... and Aggressive Jack Russell
So ... we have a 6 month old baby boy whom obviously is our Number 1 priority.
We also have a 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier that sadly has become much more aggressive over the years. 99% of the time he's fine ... but in the past year (even before the baby was born) he's bitten several people that come to our house and even attacked me the other day when I went to clean up his vomit.
My wife (who really isn't a dog person to begin with) really just wants him gone as she thinks he's unsafe to have near our baby. Now granted, when he's near the baby, he seems very protective and even lick his hands a lot.
So ... what should we do ????
Give him up?
Try more training??
