    Unhappy8 yr old male Lab aggressive towards huskies

    Any advice would be appreciated. My boy shows aggression towards huskie like dogs. He's never been aggressive and plays well with most dogs. In the last year 3 huskies have moved in our neighborhood and he's very aggressive towards them. I make him sit and lay down, but it never changes.

    Have you had him since he was a puppy? Perhaps he had a bad experience with a husky.
    Sam doesn't like German Shepherds, but since we haven't had her since puppyhood, we're not sure why.
    I don't have any advice. We just rein her in when we're going to run into one and discourage playing with the Shepherd.

    Yes I've had him since he was 5 weeks old.
    Aggressive as in lunging, growling, hackles up. Trying to get to the dog(s).
    I'm now back to basics. Carry treats and when we see one I get his attention and stay as calm as possible, tell him to sit, relax and if he does offer a treat. This seems to be working. Would still welcome any advise.

    thats odd. Mine wants to eat one of the chiwawas next door. We got one on each side, the other chiwawa is her best friend (as a puppy, she used to like to do hurdles over him haha), but the other one she wants to eat would not let her come close the very first time she saw him and snipped at her. Now whenever she sees that dog, she goes crazy and looks like she wants to eat him. His name is taco, lol maybe she thinks of food. Good luck trying to fix that though, I dont think you can change the past. These dogs just don't forget things like that.
