Customer Question
Good Morning! I...

Good Morning! I am extremely upset - my 11 year old maltipoo is highly anit-children and has great separation anxiety. He is very agressive towards small children and I now have been blessed with a grandson and do not feel I can have him around my grandson - any ideas?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

Were you able to see what I typed earlier?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

He doesn't hurt - he is extremely agressive around children

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the dog's name?

Brodie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Brodie?

He has been fixed - but he still humps everyone and barks alot - I have had him for 11 years

Has Brodie been evaluated by a behaviorist for the aggression you've been seeing? Can you tell me more about the behaviors of "extreme aggression" he exhibits toward kids?

Dog Trainer: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 6 months ago

Can you tell me about the behavior you're seeing? Is he growling and attacking without provocation? Is he not growling? Is he avoiding children and being handled despite trying to avoid them?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

AlexLos Angeles, CA

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.

GPHesperia, CA

I couldn't be more satisfied! This is the site I will always come to when I need a second opinion.

JustinKernersville, NC

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.

EstherWoodstock, NY

Thank you so much for taking your time and knowledge to support my concerns. Not only did you answer my questions, you even took it a step further with replying with more pertinent information I needed to know.
