ken is the front one!
Ken is almost 2 years old. His sister is Avery, a beagle (in the pic above) and his brother is Mcdougal, a mini schnauzer.
I get bored at work so I go on dog forums all day. Lately Ken has been acting aggressively. We go camping almost every weekend and when our friends stop by our campsite he growls at them. He's even nipped at a few when they get too close! if you come at him too quickly, he draws back as if you're going to hit him. I don't get it. We got him as an 8 week old puppy and he's never been around anyone who would've hit him. He is neutered and has no hypothyroidism symptoms. I thought he was a well-adjusted dog (no reason for him to be fearful/shy, he comes everywhere with us and has been exposed to a lot of different situations from the time we got him) but this growling/barking at random people SUCKS!
Another thing, he doesn't do this at home (or somewhere where he can run free), only when on a leash (like when we're camping or at someone's house)
???? we've been bringing him camping the past 2 seasons and he just started this crap this year. Any ideas?
