Customer Question

I have a 5 months old Norwegian Elkhound. I have had her since she was 8 weeks old. Her aggression towards me is getting worse. When I get home from work she greets me with affection. Later she becomes aggressive if I get out of her sight. She will get in front of me and growl, bare her teeth, bark and bite. If I am setting watching TV or another activity, she is fine.

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I have been in the dog field for 25 years. I am a Therapy Dog & AKC Evaluator/trainer/ specializing in behavior. It will be my pleasure to help you today.

What type of training do you do daily?

What do you do when she shows this behavior?

Are you walking away from her or toward her when she displays this aggression?

I offered you additional services because some people find it easier to talk about what is going on. But if you prefer to continue this way that is fine as well :)
