I'm just very concerned, and I'm trying to get to the bottom of this. A bite that requires 12 stitches is not something to take lightly, and I have been nervous about the situation since this last biting incident. So far I think the best bet is to get an evaluation from a behaviorist vet. After ruli...

I have to admit that I am getting confused. It seems like some people are saying that aggression can be treated through either finding a medical cause or by using proper behavioral methods. The last two posts I just read make me think that may not be the case. Is it just the Chow nature and it can't...

Thanks for posting this list. It's really helpful.

And the dog is often said to seem confused or "remorseful" about what he has done following the attack



This was particulary interesting. Ginger has this exact reaction after biting.

The thyroid article is very interesting. I've known cats with thyroid problems, and I can't believe I didn't even think of that as a possibility. My parents have talked to a couple of regular behaviorists. Having Ginger see a veterinary behaviorist makes perfect sense. As a matter of fact I think th...

Thank you both! I will double check the food and pass on the suggestions for both a change in diet and the passive dominance. I really hope this works. She is such a sweet dog when she's not biting or growling. I really appreciate your help.

Thanks for the immediate replies Kiwani and Sojourner. I'm in the process of looking into possible medical causes. Sojourner, Ginger is my parent's dog. I don't live with them, but this is such a problem for them that I thought I would try to get some advice. She was adopted as a puppy, maybe 12 wee...

aggression...don't know what to do

Hi everyone, I'm new here, and I really need any advice you can give. My parents have a Chow/Golden female who is about 4 years old, and she has bit both my mother and my father. The most recent time my dad needed 12 stitches. They don't know what to do. They absolutely love her, but they have tried...
