    My boyfriend and I  have owned our girlie for 2 yrs. He's suddenly become aggressive to my bf. Why?

    My dog, peanut, is 2 years old and we have owned him since he was 9 weeks old. We have taken him to obedience school for 9 weeks when he was a baby and he has just now been displaying signs of aggression toward my boyfriend who lives with me. We both take care of peanut together and I'm wondering why the aggression toward my boyfriend all of the sudden? And why is he clinging/being overprotective of me? I have never had indoor pets and I am clueless as to how to handle this situation. My boyfriends feelings are very hurt because it was his idea to buy peanut in the first place.

    is peanut a male dog? I think he was afraid to lose you. He knows that your bf and you are in love but peanut couldn't accept to see both of you so loving, jealousy?

      Yes, he is a male dog. I meant to write Yorkie. It might be jealousy. I did some research online &I'm trying to be more of the disciplinarian than my boyfriend. I think that might help. He probably thinks my bf doesn't love him bc he scolds Peanu

    Dogs are protective of their mate or pack leader - which ever one makes most sense to them.

      So he thinks I'm the boss, basically? And why would he think that when we both live here & take care of him? This just started 2 weeks ago.

    If we get Peanut neutered, will his aggressive behavior become better?
