Why Is My Mini Aussie So Aggressive?
(Vancouver, BC, CA)
I have 2 cats and whenever they walk by my Aussie seems to attack them. She never seems to bite them but she growls and her teeth come out and she charges and growl/barks in their ear.
I seem to notice this when she is sitting beside me and my cats walk by. But she randomly attacked one for doing nothing.
She also does the same to me but when we’re in bed and it’s dark and I try to pet her, she does the same teeth out and big growl at me. After she does this she licks me and cuddles up which I am very confused.
I bought her as a stress dog but she has cause nothing but unexpected behaviour as I thought Aussie didn’t have.
Anyway I can fix this? I put her in her kennel for a 'time out' but it doesn’t seem to help.
