New to this forum but would appreciate some advice on this. Our family dog (a terrier of mixed breed) is 3 years old. He is mostly a good natured little dog but from the day we got him we have had issues with him biting. He does it when he gets excited but also if he is aggravated, I.e. if we scold him over a misdimeanor. He has bitten me twice, and most recently our neighbour. We have had to stop friends calling to the house with their young kids because of this.
We love him dearly and it would break our heart to have give him away but its causing us (particularly my dad) a lot of stress worrying about it. Does anybody have any recommendations as to what we can do? Can a dog be trained to stop biting or is it a waste of time and money
