Customer Question

My dog is growling and seems scared of me. He has never done this before and it has just begun in the last few days

He runs past me as quickly as he can and when I try to pet and love him he starts to growl. He is trying to ignore me, it's almost like he is fearing me. When my daughter is around he'll run and go be right next to her

How long have you had the dog?
