Aggression Over Toys And Barking When Outside
I adopted 2 year old Australian Shepherd from a shelter that was planning on putting him down. He was a nervous wreck. He had chewed the hair off of his rear and had destroyed property. That was three yeas ago. He is a fantastic apartment dog. He's gentle, quiet, calm (his hair grew back) when he's inside. Outside he is Obnoxious. Barking and jumping at me. I live across the street from a park and he gets to run off leash. He loves chasing Frisbees and balls but growls and runs from me when I try to take the toy back to throw it for him. I trust my dog but worry sometimes that he may accidentally bite me. How can I show him that playing outside is fun?
