My Mini Aussie Is Nipping And Barking On Walks

by Ann

Hi, I have the best Mini Aussie pup who is 15 weeks old. She's already house-broken, crate-trained, and an angel (most of the time).

However, this week she just started behaving differently on walks. She has developed a loud bark (2-3 in a row at a time) and a slight growl when she tugs on the leash... she then comes along behind me and nips at the bottom of my coat.

Has anyone else ever experienced this behavior? Do you know how to stop it?

Thank you SO much, in advance.
