Q. Dear Digital Dog,
I have a cocker-datson (Cocker Spaniel x Dachshund Mix - see breed profiles for more information)mix when we have any visator Tazz acks like he is
going to bit these people and he has bitten the pant leg of our meter
reader what shall I do he is about 14 months old
Wondering and Worried
Ans. ~ Hello W & W,
Tazz is still young enough to benefit from some heavy and very positive socializing.
Additionally basic obedience would help him understand that he can look to
you for guidance and finally, because he HAS bitten (at least that is what I take your email to say, and it will only get worse with time) I would also work with a behaviorist in
order to help him look at the world differently.
