Over protective of younger dog

Post by Laura_sa on Tue Aug 22 2017, 10:37

Hi there

We have had our second staffy for a few months now and I'm noticing our 2.5 year old seems to be getting over protective of him with other dogs. Is this normal? Up until now she's never had any issues or aggression with other dogs but seems her hackles get up more easily when he's around. He's 4 months.

Advice or experience appreciated.

Hello! This isn't something that I have experienced personally - but I have heard of this in other families. In any case of aggression towards other dogs or people it is recommended to work with a certified behaviourist in person - as online advice could easily be misconstrued! But, of course, forum members would be here for support along the way!
