Q. Female boxer lab mix is aggressive towards adult strangers coming into our home she has to be put in my bedroom until they leave.
A. This is a very serious behavior. It sounds like she is quite protective of her home. Please seek some help from a trainer that specializes in working with aggression cases. I would recommend a program like a BAT (behavior adjustment training) style program. This will give you the confidence and tools to help her work through this issue. Aggression can start for many reasons; genetics, health conditions, training (or lack thereof ), or in this case being protective or resource guarding. It is very important to have proper guidance to walk you through how to address this situation. Aggression is not something to be taken lightly and can be corrected or managed, but this is best achieved with help of a highly skilled professional.
