My family dog is a corgi and hes almost a year old. Recently heâ€™s been slightly aggressive in a sense that if you take food away heâ€™ll snap at you. I read that you should tap your dogs nose when theyâ€™re bad, as opposed to hitting, and when doing that he snaps even more. Heâ€™s not the slightest bit aggressive towards our two cats and chihuahua though. Today he somehow got ahold of a pen and when my mom when to take it away he bit her hand and made her bleed. I went to go pick him up to put him in the bathroom as a punishment and he FLIPPED out and latched onto my hand so hard that it immediately bruised. he has never ever done this before. after putting him in the bathroom for 10 minutes i went to go check on him. as i went to pet him he bit me again. like i said heâ€™s never done anything like this and iâ€™m shocked. he isnt fixed so i was wondering if it could be a hormonal thing?
( we plan on getting him fixed ASAP, we live in a small town so the nearest vet is very far) I really just need to know if this is something i should be very worried about or something thatâ€™ll go away after getting him neutered. Before leaving any rude comments please be aware that this is the family dog and iâ€™m a minor so i canâ€™t take him to get neutered myself. I just dont know what to do =(
