Help, We are new bassett hound world and need help. My family and our 3 cats just adopted a 6yr bassett hound from the humane soceity and now we need some advice. Meg, is a great dog, she just has 1 fault that concerns us. She counter surfs and when she gets what she is looking for she gets VERY aggressive. No biting, but barking and snapping. The first time it happened we thought it was hunger, the next time it happened it was right after she ate dinner. We have now cleared our counter and learned a trick of rewarding up. Are there any other ideas on stopping the behavior? What do you do when you have an adult bassett barking and snapping at you? Thanks for the help, everything else about the dog is great. Very good with the kids and cats, but I have to stop that aggressive behavior she has.
