    Default Random Aggression... Holding A "Grudge"

    Herschel has random acts of aggression. I say random as in we're talking rarely aggressive, but he seems to remember triggers and elements that he may have become territorial over, even after the trigger is removed. One example would be a case of water bottles left on the floor. He was in rare form over these bottles while they were down there. If there was movement toward them he was on guard and he remained that way over the area for a couple days after they were removed. My wife has water delivered and yesterday while she was bringing a case in from outside he bit her arm requiring 5 stitches. She thinks he was trying to get at our pit, whom he hates for whatever reason, but I just don't think she believes he would bite her as I'm normally the one he's aggressive with. Anyone else have a similar experience?

    How old is Herschel? Any other change in behavior?

    He is 3, and I wouldn't necessarily say it's a change in behavior as he has always been moody.

    Have you had him checked out by his vet? Mood changes & random aggression sometimes is related to them being in some kind of pain.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    agreed.... I would have a full vet check done to rule out any health issues ad also reinforce training/alpha in the home with 'nothing in life is free'
