My almost 3 year old fawn boxer Milo has been getting increasingly aggressive...towards other people (he doesn't know), me, my fiancé and our other dog. He's always been kind of a butt head towards people he didn't know, but he's starting to actually growl instead of just bark. Today he has been really bad towards me and my fiancé, I tried to move him to another part of the couch and he started growling at me and when my fiancé was trying to pick him up to put him on the chair with him he practically snapped at him. He ran around with our friends dog all day yesterday, so I'm not sure if he's just tired/cranky or what. Usually he's as nice as can be, loves to cuddly, loves to give kisses...but he's NEVER liked his butt or hind legs touched.
Anyone have any ideas of behavior tips on calming him down?
he is not neutered...we bred him, so we prefer not to fix him, but if it's the difference between having to put him down for being aggressive and him being a good dog, I'll fix him.
