My dog has always been kind of bratty toward other dogs. More like she'd just growl and nip at them when they got too close or would sniff her butt. I saw on the dog whisperer one day that it's normal for dogs to do that to other dogs as a way to say "hey get out of my space let me come up to you". I could control usually get her to be ok long enough to introduce her to another dog. However, it seems like suddenly she'd become really aggressive toward other dogs for no reason. She attacked my neighbors dog and she started growling and snarling at her when all she did was walk out of my neighbors house. I don't know what to do! I've lived in a new place for a month now but she seems to make this nasty snarl noise and she sounds soo evil anytime she sees other dogs. I want her to be ok w/ other dogs but I don't know what to do! HELP!!

Oh and I forgot to mention, she's an 8 lb rat terrier so she's kind of bratty to begin w/ because she has LDS (little dog syndrome). How do I combat this!

Little dogs sometimes act like that because they have big attitudes like my shih tzu but it could also depend on the age. So if your dog is 6 months to 12 months old it's normal but getting her spayed(same as neutering but for girls)will help with attitude a little bit. HOPE THIS HELPS!
