Our question this week was:

Dear Sir, I have a 2 month old Labrador Retriever (lab) puppy. She is very aggressive towards me. Every time she sees me she wants to bite my hand or feet. It's not the case with other members of the family. I am the one who give food and medicine but still. Please suggest what should be done.

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote that your 2-month-old Labrador retriever puppy is aggressive toward you. This is a very young age to be showing aggression which concerns me. I'd recommend that you read a couple articles.

The first article I would suggest is Nipping and Mouthing by Dogs. The next one is on Aggression in Dogs which talks about aggression and ways to deal with it.

I'd check with your local shelter or pet store and consider dong a puppy class. You dog needs to understand that you are the pack leader. I don't want this behavior to escalate.

Best of luck!


Dr. Debra
