I adopted an older dog from our local SPCA last week. She is so sweet and friendly towards people, but every time she sees another dog, she growls and barks and strains against her leash and acts like she wants to attack the other dog. How can I correct this behavior? She was kept at the SPCA since November of last year, and she is now in heat. Could either of these have created the problem? She is about 4 years old, and part Golden Retriever and part Chow. Thank you. By the way, she learned her name and was housebroken in one day. She also sits, shakes hands, and lies down on commmand, so she must have had some training. Thank you.
The first thing you want to do is spay your pet. After you spay her she may calm down. Thanks, vetcarerx vet team
