I normally have Tonga on car rides with the family, never had a problem...

Over the weekend, the weather was great so we went out..I noticed his behavior changed dramatically, he is now barking like a snarling monster at everyone which comes near the truck
..

I went to a drive through and he darn near jumped in my lap to confront the person in the window which was very embarrassing.


I had to jump out of the car a few times, my kids were in the truck and he was breaking his neck to jump out with me. I have never seen him behave this way...almost seems like I have a total different dog.

I will definitely have to invest in those dog barriers / dog seat belt harnesses.

Perhaps he is just getting older ?? I have never seen him behave this way. For me this is all about trying to understand my fur baby...

He hasnt been fixed as of yet, I am waiting until he is about 18 months to do that...he will be a 12 months. Next month.

I definitely need to put him back in doggie obedience class...

Any clues from my doggie professional friends ?

Thanks !

Jayne

Just the idea of someone "trying to control me" is enough to put my panties in a duff.....


You are correct, I am back to training....which I know will be a long life thing.....
