6month old male fear aggression toward children and strangers
Our Ike has lashed out for a second time at our 3year old niece.
The first time he flew at her and snapped at her fingers, second time he tackled her from behind and bit her arm.
Both times my partner hasn't been paying attention to the signs (I've been at work). I've told her to keep him away from kids until we sort his problems.
He isn't neutered yet and was the sooky clingy pup of the litter.
I have got him better with strangers by getting them to ignore him when he barks at them aggressively, occasionally ill get them to treat him when he doesn't bark at them.
We live on a farm with cattle and his fine with them, although he is dominant with our cats.
Please help as the inlaws want him put down, which infuriates me because they don't understand Ike mentality. They think he just attacks because he hates kids.
If it comes down to the crunch I'd rather end the relationship and keep my dog and help him through his fears.
