Okay I'm new to this so bare with me. Okay I adopted a Basset Hound from down south and live in New England. He is a great dog but randomly will attack. He attacked my girlfriends little sister twice while she was walking by him and the cut required stitches. Now I'm starting to think its a dominance issue because if he is laying somewhere on the bed and I try to get him down he will growl at me and show teeth. Just the other day Him and I were laying on the floor and he woke up from a nap and moaned and looking at me out of the corner of his eye and attacked the side of my face ripping me ear open and cutting just to the right of my right eye. I am unsure what to do. Can anyone help me?
