  • Very informative. Dogs are territorial and its the owners responsibility to make sure they are not going to bite someone. Ive never hit my dog but when he growls in anger i usually roll up a daily reporter and hit my hand and shout NO! Works every time. The loud noise gets their attention off who they are growling at.

  • brian48 - A squirt bottle filled with water does the trick too. Any unwanted behavior gets a quick squirt, preferably to the face. It serves the same purpose as the newspaper, only they see it, hear it, and feel it. After a awhile all you need to do is reach for it and the unwanted behavior stops and they usually put themselves in a time out.
