I have a 2 year old Belgian Malinois, explosives. I am wondering if my issue is aggression or just a dog being a dog. I who work in K-9 and recently I have noticed my dog just goes bonkers when I come in to the kennel area or if he sees the other trucks that he knows has dogs in them. At home, in the car ANYWHERE else, at the park, out of the car on lead he is fine. He obeys me etc. But when he is in the back of the cruiser, he absolutely loses it with barking, pawing at everything, and ripping into whatever he can. If I open the door and tell him to sit, he does so calmly and gets petted. As soon as I shut the door, he goes nutso. I know the Malinois temperment is a bit different than a GSD but Im hoping for a little insight. These dogs we work with are kennel dogs and have had little socialization, so no one knows if they are fighters or not. I have no idea what to do to get him to calm down. Let me know if yo need more info. Not sure if i shoulda posted this in aggression board.
