I'd agree with FoxyVixen on that one too, if its a case of nervous aggression, challenging the dog or making a loud noise could spook him and cause the dog to react defensively and lunge forward!! definitely work speaking to a professional to see what is triggering the aggression!

Thanks guys for the info. I don't know if it is sudden, I was away for six and a half months. I thought first he might be uncertain of me but I've looked after him a good bit since I've been back. He acts the same around my parents and he would have seen them while I was away. I know more than once his owner's son had people over and threw house parties when she wasn't there so there is a chance that could have affected him (she's since taken the key off him after he trashed the house). Went up later and he seemed nervous but didn't react aggressively, just waited for me to open the door and went straight out.

House parties with the dog inside?! Could explain his uncertainty towards anybody other than the owner coming indoors. Poor dog. You'll have to build your relationship up with him again. He needs to know you're not something to be afraid of.

Ignore him completely on entering the house, going about sorting his feed and opening the doors. Don't make a fuss of him or acknowledge him snarling. You've entered his safe home and he has nowhere else to go to feel safe, hence appearing aggressive towards you. Fluid, soft but quick movements on your part. Nothing sudden or challenging!!

He does sound very uncertain poor fella. Just be careful with him and leave his feeding as the last job. He does sound like he's become food aggressive which could have something to do with the house parties - you never know what drunk people would find funny!!

Mention it to the owner all the same. They should know anything different in their dogs behaviour and be careful yourself that he doesn't catch you with his teeth. Sounds more nervous than a vicious dog, but that doesn't mean he won't nip/bite if he's uncertain in his own home with nowhere to run

Cheers I might look into that I'm useless when it comes to that stuff plus being Eircom they normally block a lot of that behaviour , but I am hooked and want more.

My favorite shows on TV at the moment would be the Following, Breaking Bad and now The Walking Dead.

Yeah it comes from the comics. It's a similar story but obviously it's been tweaked for TV. I watched the first season of the show and tbh it didn't sell me. The characters are fleshed out better in the comics.

You can pick up the compendium which is the first 50 odd in one book in Easons. Well worth a read.

EDIT : FYI Daryl is not in the comics. This appears to be a big deal for people that have watched the show first.

You also check the Telltale game. It's set in the same universe but has it's own story. It will cause tears.

Was going to say the same thing bout Daryl. He originally auditioned for the Sheriffs part I think and they liked him so much, they created a character for him Something which I am VERY thankful for

Is it any good? I've never watched it because I always heard how crap it is. But I only ever heard about from gamers so I don't know how accurate the reveiws really are.

Someone needs to bottle motivation so I can have little shot when I get into my not doing anything funks.
