  1. Dog biting and snapping while laying down

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog has been snapping at his tail aggressively while barking and yelping. He will lie down for a while, seemingly comfortable, then he will suddenly spring up and start snapping like something has just hurt him. We've given him flea medicine for a couple weeks now and he continues doing it...

    My dog randomly starts growling and snapping at his tail angrily and this state will last for about 3 seconds when he returns back to normal. During this time he barks and sometimes makes like a yelping noise. I think something is hurting him. He will just be sitting there on the carpet and...
  3. Agressive Husky

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Maya is my 3 going on 4 years old Siberian husky. She has been making me more and more afraid of her over the past year. If someone pets her at certain times she will growl.

    Some back-story: About two months ago, I adopted a handsome German Shepherd mix from animal control, they were about to put him down because of his age.

  8. Growling and snapping at babies

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My husband and I rescued a 5 year old terrier mix from the Humane Society in February.

We have introduced him to lots of dogs and people...

    Here's the cast of characters: Dusky is a five-year-old border collie/australian shepherd mix. She's VERY shy and submissive around people. Meeting people makes her tuck her tail and cower.
