My dog who is 3 yrs old starts barking when we see other dogs while walking that he does not know and his hair stands up. He used to be quite timid but there was a dog, also on leash, that would nip at him. Would this be the cause. What can I do to stop this. I don't like the jumping and barking at the other dogs.
I recommend that you slowly introduce him to non-treatening dogs. I recommend that you have a muzzel and leash on him so he cannot hurt another animlal. Hopefully he will regain trust again and be more friendly. As you trust him more give him more freedom ( ie.. Remove muzzel) I also recommend that you neuter your pet, if you have not done so. vetcare
