8 week aggressive JR

by Ashlei

I have a new 8 wk old jr.. He is timid and playful but when he comes into contact with my 6month old chiuaua he snaps. He's growled at his brother several times and my aunts Labrador. Is there anything I can do to help stop this?

Puppy barking at other dog NEW
by: Robert

8 weeks old is just a puppy. I wouldn't tack on the label "aggressive". At 8 weeks they are just learning how to really run, jump and play. They are also learning about how to socialize and interact with other dogs. Barking and nipping at this age are very common since puppies don't know the "rules" yet when it comes to interacting. I would just keep exposing your puppy to other dogs and as the puppy gets older he will gradually learn about how to coexist with other dogs.
