My 11 month old Malinois female is a great dog until anyone she has never seen before shows up,and it can be anywhere, she will go after the person like she is going to bite them, but she never does thank god we have tried to stop her but no word commands seem to work any suggestions would be appreciated
This soounds like a fear aggression response, the dog is lunging out to make the fear object go away. The more you allow the dog to get into this situation, and the dog responds this way, the more difficult it will be to change the behavior. Ask you Veterinarian for a behavioral referral with someone experienced in the treatment of fear aggression(a positive trainer only/no abuse or forceful training) For now avoid strangers till the problem is dealt with.
When I look up into the sky, I think to myself, Wheres the ceiling?
