This Beautiful Cocker Spaniel Isn't Aggressive
We have a gorgeous 14-month-old blue roan cocker boy called Fergus. He had always been incredibly sociable and great with all other dogs.
We go for daily walks and he knows all the friendly dogs, the snappy ones and the ones to generally avoid.
We usually meet a group of dog walking friends, a mix of bitches, neutered dogs and entire dogs of different shapes and sizes.
From being a little puppy he had always got on with all dogs and is usually quite happy doing his own thing. He has some great buddies, who he plays constantly with, particularly Ted, who is a young male terrier.
However, over the last couple of months, he has started to become very aggressive towards certain dogs.
At first, it was young, full-on black male labs. But recently he has gone out of his way to go for a young, friendly King Charles and a very well behaved young German Shepard, both of who are on a lead, minding their own business.
I feel really anxious about his behaviour, as he has always been such a pleasure to walk and is really good off his lead.
How do I handle this behaviour when it happens and would having him neutered help?
