    My pug's behavior changes when we put her in a diaper.  This is her first heat and we plan to spay.

    Usually, she's the more aggressive dog (we have a 3-year old spayed pug also), but when she's in her diaper she becomes submissive and the other pug becomes more aggressive.  What is the cause, and should we be worried?  Thanks.

    I'm curious as to why you put a diaper on a spayed dog?

    I'm not sure what would cause the behavior change. It could be a self-conscious issue, where the dogs know that something is different about them. Nervousness causing aggression. It's hard to say.

    Typically, spayed dogs don't need the diaper, as the diaper is created for dogs in heat.

    Whitney...she's not spayed yet.  This is her first heat and she's bleeding.  That's why she's in a diaper.  Thanks if you can offer any insight into her behavior change.  She is much LESS aggressive when she's in her diaper and the OTHER DOG (who is spayed and NOT in a diaper) becomes MORE aggressive.
