I have a two year old female border collie who is such a friendly, easy going, happy girl. She does not show signs of aggression towards anything, but tonight she tried to attack my cat who was sniffing around my dogs bowl. There was some food in the bowl at the time. I freaked out and did something I definitely should not have done, and smacked her on the bum (only gently) and yelled at her, because I was afraid she would hurt my cat.
I felt so terrible afterwards and decided I need to stop this aggressive behaviour, the proper way, because I know what I did was wrong. So I came here to this forum for help!!
I have already looked up on Google for remedies to my problem, but I couldn't find any answers to my exact problem (all I could find was food-aggression towards people or other dogs). So I thought I might ask if anyone has had the same problem as me and what worked for them.
Thanks for your help!!! I really need it!!
