My male is becoming possessive over me
I have a 1 year old GSD who will be 2 next month. The past couple of months I have noticed on play dates he is becoming very dominate and pushy with other dogs when they approach me. I canít even bend down and pet another dog without him trying to push it away from me. The latest incident was this past weekend at bbq at my parentsí house. My uncle brought his dog over which my dog has played with many of times. When I would go outside and his dog would come up to me he would charge at her. He does growl and will grab the top of the neck with his mouth. I had my husband pet the dog and play with it but our dog did not care at all and ignored them but with me itís a different story. Iíve asked how he acts at daycare and they said he has never had any issues with his play group. How do I go about handling this situation? Other then this he is wonderful. He loves people and is amazing with children and our Chihuahua and my parentís Chihuahua and cat.
