I look after my brothers dog while he is at work. He is about 6 months old and a Jack Russell x
Over the last month or so he has become increasingly snappy towards my 2 kids. They love him and if they go near him when he is sitting on the lounge he will growl and then try and bite them. Today he went out to bite my 3 year old when she just walked past him.
He is also extremely aggressive around food. I went to take him away from Kimbas food and he started growling at me and he knew he shouldn't be eating it as he ran off after.
The girls at time can be rough but I have showed them the right way to treat the dogs and not to be nasty and I have to say they are gentle with him.
I don't know what to do with him. I can't have a dog that is aggressive around the kids. If I can't find a way to calm him down asap I will have to ask my brother to stop bringing him over. Its not something I want to do as until the aggression this worked out so well, Kimba loves his company and Buddy isn't home alone, but I have to put the kids safety first.
What should I do?
