Hi all, some advice please
We have had occasional issues with Chewbacca showing some aggression towards other puppies at puppy preschool. Some people, in particular the vet at the school, have suggested that it might be due to our allowing Chewbacca to play with older dogs. Do any on this forum think this is wrong/right?
I took him to the off leash park for the first time today. There was another puppy (a little older) there today who became first puppy to challenge Chewbacca for dominance; none of the puppies at the preschool ever challenged Chewie when he started showing aggressive behaviour (and some of them were also older). After that initial "disagreement" there were no more problems with the puppy he met.
I am cautious of taking Chewbacca out because while I know he will be respectful to adult dogs, he may not be so to immature dogs. My other half wants us to take him to a trainer. Do we really need to? Is this an issue that should sort itself out? If we don't see the trainer, what will happen as Chewie gets bigger? Will he start to challenge bigger animals?
