Why does my JRT HATE a Male neighbor??
I have a rescued JRT that wandered into my sister's yard injured almost years ago. She's a very affectionate and friendly dog. I jut moved in with my brother and for some reason one my girl LUNGES AT AND VICIOUSLY BARKS at the next door neighbor. This is the FIRST TIME I've ever seen her do this.
To put it into perspective, she usually barks a couple of times at the neighbor (male) on the other side of us and then she GOES ON WITH HER BUSINESS. When the other neighbor comes out she lunges to the gate, bares her teeth, gets super hyper/anxious and barks CONTINUOUSLY. I have to bring her inside it's so bad.
I'm starting to feel like she's knows this person from when she belonged to her previous owner (possibly him?). How can I stop this behavior??
