Growling, at this age, is either him showing that he's frustrated or that he thinks you're playing a game. Neither is aggressive.
Showing your dog 'who's boss' however, IS likely to create aggression.
LynneMarie is right, it's far better to focus on what you want him to do and to encourage that than it is to try to correct him for things you don't want. Simply make the things you don't want unrewarding or impossible (as I said, fence off the beds). Posted via Mobile Device
