Well I have owned a walker for about 2 years now and he has developed a bad habit. He seems tense around children and has snapped at them in several occasions. My family and I love the dog and do not want to put him down but I dont know what to do. He snapped at a couple children in my house for no reason that I know of. At first I thaught he was just protective but sometimes he doesnt even bark he just snaps. I went on vaction for 10 days and left him with my buddy and he snapped at his sisters friend and left her with 15 stiches on her cheek. Now i dont want to put him down and thank god the parents have been understanding. I havent been abusive but i have slapped him around several times when he chewed up a 2 couch, and when I saw him snap at the kids face the first time. I dont know what to do. A perfesional is going to come over and evaluate him and see what is the best thing to do. What should I do? Have any of you resovled these problems? I dont ever want to see it happen again. Nor do i want to put my friend down.
