18 Week Old Mini Aussie Aggressive
How should I handle my 18 week old pup from growling and biting when I need to take something away from him? Several times I needed to take something like tissue, MY CREDIT CARD... away from him that he snatches from a table or my desk. He just grabbed my credit card from my desk when he was on my lap. He growled and tried to bite me when I took it away. I'm very concerned at this early age being this aggressive. It's starting to scare me if this gets worse. I just don't want to punish him the wrong way. I yell NO! for now but then what? I don't want this to get worse.
He will also do that at times when I have to go out and I have to pull him away from the door. He hates when I grab his collar. He will do this quick growl and bite thing. Any suggestions?
