Last night Chloe started barking aggressively at a child. I had gone to pick my daughter up from a friend's house. It was dark and my daughter got Chloe out of my truck to meet her friend. Chloe started barking at her. Really shocked me.

She is normally good with kids as I let her socialize with the neighborhood kids and I take her places like Petsmart and the park daily.

Earlier in the day, my other daughter's friends came over to pick her up, whom Chloe has never met, and she was great with them.

I have only noticed her doing this one other time. We were walking at the park after dark and she barked at a man that was there.

So, I am wondering if this is just a temporary fear thing and if it has to do with night time.

Isn't it a bit early for a 7.5 month old to be acting protective? Is this protection, aggression, fear, what?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Thanks for the advice.

I did not see how she was standing last night....I was still seated in the truck. But, when she barked at the guy at the park she was going towards him.

The other night she started barking ferociously while I was watching a baseball game. I had left the blinds open for her to look out at the kids earlier and had not shut them. Anyway, I got up and looked around outside for a person or dog and there was nothing. I think it was the reflection of the ballgame on the tv. Kind of shocked me.

She doesn't seem "fearful" but I am not sure how that presents itself.
