I have a 3 month old rat terrier mix. He is very agressive and I have a hard time taking him around other people or even other pets. He doesn’t necessarily bite but he does bark….ALOT. Is there anything I can say or do to teach him to be more sociable or is this just a trait of all terriers?
I strongly, STRONGLY recommend you get your puppy into puppy classes as quickly as possible. Not only will your puppy be exposed to lots of other puppies in the class with whom to learn to socialize nicely, but you will have a trainer available to teach you how to handle your puppy properly and answer all your questions about his behavior and ways to correct it. The time and money you invest in classes now will pay off in a lifetime of enjoyment with your puppy.
