Selective Aggression

by Jody
(Salem, OR)

The dog (Goose) stays at my parent's house on the farm when I have to travel in my job. He does fine there, but when I bring him home to my apartment, he goes ballistic if he sees another dog. Not too upset at other people just dogs. Any suggestions.

Selective aggression

It really isn't aggression... it is a release of energy.
At your house he is bored but at your parents farm... there is lots to do.
Do you walk or run with him? If not start walking or running with him.
He needs an energy release at your house, cuz he is getting it at the farm. Try That.
Good Luck
