    Angry Aggression

    We have a 1yr old female. Anytime our English bulldog get near her while eating or playing with her toy she attracts him. Any other time he is her best friend. Im at a complete loss

    Sounds like resource guarding. You should bring in a trainer.

    Some Frenchies are bad about that. We limit when ours play with their toys or bones to prevent this. A trainer may help with it, but we have never used one. We just manage ourselves by limiting the toys. At feeding time, place them apart or in different rooms. We feed ours in their crates adn we never have that problem.

    Re: Aggression

    Yes, resource guarding. Feeding meals and offering treats should happen with them separated. Pick up the bowls too, if food is left over and they are accessible to both dogs. It is not convenient, but should eliminate the problem you are having. Does she react that way with toys and bones as well or just food?

    I agree with separating them while feeding. Stella resource guards, but she especially gets going with food. She believes she is the keeper of all food in our house. Fortunately Jake is very mellow and ignores her. Good luck!

    Welcome to FBN! I had a similar situation, you need a trainer in the home to help you learn how to rea the body language and for you to be seen as boss so she is aware that behavior is not allowed. Get it now before it gets to where you can not correct
