    Default Going after other dogs at daycare

    I am the very proud mom of Maximus the Bulldog. Max is going to be 2 in August, has been fixed and PRAISE GOD has not had any
    "bulldog issues" other then ear infections that was food related. I dont have children living at home so My Max is an only child
    Since my husband and both work.... we found an amazing doggy daycare that is very knowledgeable in the "flat nose" breeds
    and Max has been going since he was 6 months old..... WITH THAT SAID

    He has had 2 instances now where he goes after another dog.... one was an australian shepard and one was a yellow lab
    Because of his weight he is in the "big dog group" but the handlers make sure he isnt outside all day like they are

    Hes never acted that way in front of me when hes playing with my friends dogs so I want to believe that he gets overstimulated and reacts

    After this second time the owner said he would be put in their "special needs" group which means more one on one with handlers
    and more chillax time

    Any suggestions/ideas on why he might be doing this and how you handled it
    Thank You!

    to EBN

    I agree sound like he is over-stimulated, but it could also be that he is beginning to think daycare is his 'second home' and is policing the other dogs. I used to work at a dog daycare and my girl Banks was the same way in the 'bigs' group, they switched her over to the 'littles' section and she fell inline because she did not have to assert 'her' authority -- basically, she did not feel the need to prove she could kick butt. Ask the day care staff if they can try that with Maximus before special needs section.

    Also, does he go to day care everyday or just a few days a week?

    I bet they are teasing him. I bet the Australian shepherd said something along the lines of "what happened to your face? Did you run into a wall?"

    That's what happened to Vegas at daycare. I pulled him out when he got sent home with a note that said "Vegas needs to learn how to respect other dog's bubbles".

    yup. Something provoked him. Maximus must have been told that his breathing is a little nasal and shallow and what is up with your tails. His body was also compared to that of a hippo. He was just insulted and that got to his skin, i think. (lol)
    LOL.

    Seriously though....Orion is a nut around other dogs. It's embarrassing. She is a little brat. Just a littttttle bit sassy.

    Vegas's personality started to change. Not sure if it's his epilepsy medication or what....but when they sent him home with that note....I rolled my eyes. How do you tell a dog to mind his space and to stay out of the space of other dogs? I thought the request was ridiculous and we haven't been back since.


    Ok....I admit. Vegas has a weird way of initiating play. He likes to jump in the face of other dogs and they take that as a sign of aggression. He is so submissive though. It was just better to pull him than to risk injury to him.
