Basset

Hi Annette, I am afraid this is a situation where you are going to need professional help, not one to be answered on a forum - too in-depth and animals behaviour must be observed as well as owners interaction with dogs. I really would suggest that you get help as soon as possible, as unfortunately a situation such as you describe can quickly escalate and serioud damage can occur. Have a look at www.animal-behaviour.org.za for an accredited behaviourist in your area. If you cant find one nearby, please contact me via my email and i will do all i can to assistl Thks Scotty
