2 year old Springer bitch suddenly aggressive toward other dogs
We rehomed our lovely springer Tilly about six months ago, having been told by the previous owner that she was 'too soft' to be a working dog.
She's always been a very friendly, verging on timid dog. We recently went away on a two week holiday and she was looked after by my friend who house-sat for us. During our holiday and after our return, she started being really aggressive with other dogs to the point that I no longer like to let her off the lead because she's so unpredictable.
She has always dropped to the floor and then sprinted to meet other dogs, but it used to be just to have a good sniff - now she knocks them over and tries to bite, and has given one dog a nasty nip.
She's always had a good amount of exercise but I'm worried that if she has to stay on the lead she won't get as much as she needs. She's absolutely fine with adults and children, it's just other dogs. She isn't due in season for another couple of months.
