    Excuse me for reinvigorating this thread...I came across this while researching sudden aggressiveness in bulldogs.
    We've had our Tebow for 2 years - he is 3 years old (male, we believe purebread).
    We've had some issues with aggressiveness but could pin it to certain actions (eg, don't pull him away from food).

    Last night, though, he became problematic. Went after me on 2 different occasions with no or little provocation.

    first time, I was kneeling in front of a kitchen cabinet and he came up next to me sniffing - not problem - but then started snarling and barking and my husband had to pull him away.
    A second time, I had just point topical powder on his tail (bald due what is likely an allergy hot spot) and I bent down behind him to clean up the stray powder. My husband was giving him a treat and he became angry and chased me into the kitchen and grabbed by shorts with his teeth.

    He had been to the vet on Monday and received several vaccines (2 shots) - no rabies, however.

    The vet was a woman but he has always been more accepting of my husband as alpha as opposed to me.

    I wanted to see if Devine's dog got over the issues.

    And if anyone else has any insight, please send to me.

    Seems he might be in pain and could it be you are somewhat fearful of his behavior? If you are, he is sensing it and reacting to that

    Yes, because of the previous incidents I can be fearful.

    OK - he is protecting himself... when a dog senses fear, they go into protection mode, of sorts. Use this training tool, go back to basics with him... all humans in the hosue must use this and be consistent. It is very easy the the pup knows the rules to be followed

    Thank you very much, 2BullyMama. I am also seeking out a training professional who can help within the home. I do believe there are triggers and if I know them and avoid them, we can get back to peace.

    Thank you very much. My vet recommended a behaviorist at the clinic who has worked with bullies so I'm hoping she will get up with me soon.

    What is the real threat here? That the dog will get free, get in a fight with a raccoon, and catch rabies?

    If that is *NEVER* a possibility, then is it really necessary to get the rabies vaccination?

    Seriously.

    I know its "politically correct" to say yes. So ....resist the temptation to say yes, just to say yes.

    Talking about real life here. The chances of a housebound / leashbound dog (especially mine who lives in a condo tower, not outside in a yard) getting rabies are pretty much zero.

    Then why would i damage his health by giving him the vaccine.

    The rabies shot is to protect people from a rabid dog. I don't have a rabid dog. And if he got bit by something, he would be at the vet within days getting tested for rabies, and treated if necessary.

    Therefore rabies is not a concern.

    I realize rabies vaccinations are required by law, etc. But i care more about his health than the law.
    I couldn't agree more. And mack has always had such health issues that a rabies shot, or any other shots are just out of the question for me. So we can't do boarding...but instead we have friends or family crash at my house if we are all going out of town.

    What would the consequences be, if anything?
    Can't fly on planes right ... anything else?
    No boarding, and no groomers other than the vet

    Quarantine if ever bit a human. Possibility of breaking law, depending on where you live.
