agression in 3yr old male shepherd - 02/09/2005
a client of mine has a 3 yr male unaltered. a big shepherd who is normally a nice dog. she is having a problem that dog comes over for petting & after about 3 minutes of petting starts growling & hair raising up on his neck. she is nervous this behavior could get worse- common in shepherds? is it a hormonal thing?

This is common in shepherds and is a dominance issue, but that does NOT make it acceptable. When the dog comes to be petted, pet him on the head a few times and send him away. THE OWNER, NOT THE DOG, should be in charge of how much affection is offered. When the dog becomes aggressive, stand up and smack him HARD on the head. He is competing for rank. Remember that a dog is a pack animal, not a person.
