Interaction with baby boy
Hi! I have a three year old male jack russel and I would like to ask for ur advice. I have a 1 year old son and my dog has growled at him three times now, once for crawling on his tail, the second time for trying to throw him his ball (which my son has done several times before) and this last time for accidentally stepping on his foreleg (which my son has also done before). Additional to this situation, my dog bit my hand yesterday for the second time and he has bitten two other persons before, mostly because he focuses on attacking other dogs that are far away and hadn't even noticed him. I don't want to give him away, but I'm really scared for my baby boy, a lot of people tell me to separate them, but it's hard since we live in an apartment. I've realized that maybe its because he's bored since things changed a bit when my baby was born, I don't throw him his ball to fetch as often as I used to. I've considered neutering him, actually we're about to do it, but since he's 3 years old I don't know if thismismhe solution to our problems. I've had male dogs all my life and I have never neutered any of them, I think it's a bit cruel. Please help I need urgent advice!!!! Thanks in advance.
