Springer Spaniel showing aggression to other dogs
My Springer Spaniel is very aggressive towards other dogs. When he was a puppy he was scared of other dogs but with socialization he absolutely loved all other dogs, especially puppies. Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
Then at 6 months he was attacked by a BC cross and he showed aggression for the first time, and it all went downhill from there.
He now can't be let off lead around other dogs without a muzzle, hes so scared of being attacked himself that he attacks first. We have tried socializing him again but just when we think its working he goes to attack again.
Off-lead he only goes to attack when a dog comes too close, but on lead he goes mad whether a dog is close or not. We really have tried everything, he is not interested in treats when on walks at all and just ignores them or spits them out. He isnt interested in toys while on the lead at all. We are at a complete loss now as to what to do, hes only 18 months old so there is still the chance to change it. Anyone got any ideas?
