snappy at 6 months

Post by sabrinaxbx on Thu Jun 11 2015, 21:55

Lola is 6 months now. And coming along nicely. Has met loads of dogs over the park and plays frequently with my mums dog (mastif x staff) very well. But lately she has started to snap at other dogs when introduced. Any ideas why? She has never done this before and we have introduced her to loads of dogs of all shapes and sizes.

Keep her on lead for introductions. If she snaps tell her no and walk her away. Give her some time to calm down and then reintroduce them.

Hiya. How are you going about introducing her? For example, on lead, off lead, face to face straight away? At which point does she tend to snap?

On lead, slowly. She has a sniff and then snaps. Not all the time. But the last two. Could it be some dogs she just don't like? Yesterday we tried 3 times with the same dog and she was better on the third time. The other dog a staff x boxer was not bothered by her snapping at all and wanted to play
