Why Does My Cocker Snap At
ther Dogs And People?
Why Is My Cocker Spaniel Aggressive Towards Other Dogs?
We adopted a 3-4 yr old cocker spaniel bitch from someone who said they were re-homing her from a friend's neighbor who basically left her alone on a patio all the time.
When I adopted her she was shy, but she took to me and my husband instantly.
However, we later found we have a big problem on our hands - our cocker growls and snaps at nearly everyone, from vets to strangers, and even guests in our home.
Also when she is on a leash, and other dogs approach, she snaps at them and is very aggressive. If she is off leash and sees a another dog she runs at them and is aggressive.
We've only seen her embrace one pug puppy. We have two cats and she is fine with them, except for an occasional growl and one scare attack on the cat who went near her water bowl.
We've taken her to numerous trainers for opinions and they always say "she looks very scared."
They want a couple grand but say they can't guarantee she will get better. We're concerned about having children with a biting dog.
Does anybody have experience with this?
