My Australian Shepherd Mix, Mr. Titan, Has Become Aggressive Towards Me
This is Titan. He's a 5-year-old Aussie mix. Was told he's Border Collie, Aussie, and Heeler.
I have had him all his life and I recently got diagnosed with severe advanced MS. This last year he has become aggressive towards me. I am single and live alone. His activities have not changed. We still hike regularly and play every day.
I am looking for any tips that might help me find my "leader" status in his mind. It has come to the point where I am scared of his attitude as he has started snapping at me when I let him out or biting familiar people.
Any help would be huge. I worked so hard on his training when he was younger and to watch him ignore it is extremely discouraging.
Note from Anton: You can find out more about a video-based online dog training program that has becoming a respected leader at its core on this page.
