Serious Behavioral Problems
My puppy, Indy, is a sweet and loving loyal dog. Sometimes, but lately I cannot get him to listen to a single thing I say. He WILL NOT listen, and I'm really starting to feel overwhelmed. I knew that getting an Aussie would be a challenge and that when bored they become unruly, but this fella is just like Marley from Marley & Me.
What's really bad though is that he's biting. I can't pet him without getting my arms chewed. I can't walk without him nipping at my heels. It's frustrating not only to me, but the rest of my family members, and I think they overwhelm me more than my Indy does, because they constantly yell at him then yell at me because he's an annoyance to them.
Also we have other pets and Indy is showing aggression. If another dog barks at him then he attacks and I have to pull him off. During one of the fights he actually bit me by mistake and it broke the skin. That was the last straw for me. I absolutely love my dog so so so much and want what's best for him. I just need a little help and any advice would be great. =)
