My basenji/shiba inu mix has started all of a sudden showing aggression toward other dogs.
Last summer I took her to the dog park regularly and she was very good with other dogs and wanting to play aside from the occasional nips. This summer when I started taking her back to the dog park she has started fights with any dog that shows interest in her.
The only change in her environment has been my sister moved in with her dog (rat terrier) and they get along wonderfully. But whenever I take them both for a walk, the rat terrier barks (non-aggressively) to any person or dog he sees and my dog growls, snaps and goes for the other dog?s neck. My dog shows no signs of aggression toward people at all, only other dogs.
Should I continue taking her to the dog park to re-socialize her? Perhaps without my sister?s dog? This new sudden aggression to other dogs has been very concerning.
I appreciate any insight you could provide!
