Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Help needed - Is my puppy agressive or playful? Empty
PostSubject: Help needed - Is my puppy agressive or playful?   Help needed - Is my puppy agressive or playful? EmptyMon Oct 01, 2012 2:15 am

Bit of info on the pets:

Rufus: 6 month old neutered male Alaskan Husky (no idea what mix), 65lbs. Had from 8 weeks.
Steve: 5 year old neutered male cat, 16lbs. Had from 7 weeks.
Lucy: 12 year old neutered female cat, 6lbs. Rescued last year from abandonment.

Now when Rufus chases the cats I am trying to determine whether he is actually being agressive or just trying to make them play. Steve seems to accept Rufus for the most part and even rubs up against him sometimes. However Rufus does 'bat' him with his mammoth paws and when he chases seems to lunge bite for the neck, however Steve has never squealed so I would assume he has not been hurt.

Lucy is another matter, being much more skittish. Rufus seems to take delight in going after her and unfortunately she runs like crazy.

Generally Rufus is a good natured dog, spends most his time down the dog park just licking other dogs to death. He has also started some bad habits with us like biting the lead and our hands. When we try to correct him he lunges and growls as if to bite but if he actually connects he doesn't actually bite down.

Any suggestions gratefully received at this point. We want to stop all this stuff before he gets much older. He has also just started obedience school and also seems to have developed a bad habit or gnawing at his sides, which we have yet to determine the cause of.
