hello all! I have a 2 and a half year old chow/samoyed mix named dukie! hes mostly chow from what i can tell. has the manerisms, the look, and the coarse fur, but hes more slim like a sammy.

i came here looking for a muzzle that works best for that short chowchow snout, but i figured it would be better to explain the situation and see what you all have to say.


so i got dukie as a sort of rescue deal. (it was a "dog sit him or he goes to the pound" type deal, so naturally i ended up keeping him) and he was never socialized with dogs or people. hes extremely sweet when hes comfortable around people, and i THOUGHT he was good with bigger dogs, but lately hes gotten extremely aggressive with my parents golden retriever.

neither dukie or the golden are fixed, but they did live with each other for a few months and usually played very well. i ended up moving out a few months ago, and now dukie goes for his neck and shakes like hes trying to kill him. i dont understand where this aggression came from, when it didnt exist before! i plan on getting him fixed, but i still want them to be civil in the meantime.

for the record, the golden doesnt have a care in the world about being king of the house. he isnt dominant, and has been submissive to dukie, who doesmt seem to care and wants to attack. whats my proper approach here? i know the idea of treats when he sees the golden to associate good with him, and not to punish because that will bring the association of bad with the golden. they used to be friends, what happened??
