Lilie I wonder if your daughter in law is nervous when you come over. Not in a bad way, but maybe she feels stressed to make a good impression (since you don't see her often) and the dog picks up on it.

Then add the fact that you are fearful of him, that might trigger the behavior as well.

The mystery is the trigger. It doesn't mean anything bad, or you are a bad person. Just something about you triggers the behavior. Trying to figure out the trigger will help the trainer work through the aggression.

Lilie OP - I too have a hard time believing he's only uber aggressive towards you. But, if you and your son feel that that is the case, let's try to figure out what it is about you that triggers the dog. Please note, this will in no way excuse the behavior, just trying to figure out why the dog would single out you.

If any of the following questions is too personal, I completely understand;

What is your body language like? Are you loud (vocally)? Do you use a lot of hand gestures, arms swinging?

Are you on any specific type of medication? (Some dogs can trigger on the scent of the medication in your body) During both bites, was there alchohol involved?

Does your son live alone?

mommytotwo I have seen him with others including children and other dogs, completely fine like I said this is something I really don't understand.. I have never encountered this before completely baffled.. We will see what the trainer says..
Thank you

LoveEcho I agree with Carmen, I'm not at all convinced the dog is fine with others. Lots of signals being missed, probably.
