Jack starting to bark and snap
by: James

Have you had your Jack checked out by a vet? Sometimes a change in behavior can indicate a medical issue. However it does sounds like your Jack needs to be socialized a bit more. Do you have an obedience class nearby that you can take? Learning behaviors like sit and stay would probably helpful for your little pup and then being able to socialize with other dogs will most likely cut down on the behaviors you are seeing. If you do take a class, practicing learned commands everyday is a must - your only need about 5 minutes or so.
