OK, My 1 year-old dog has been fantastic with my baby for her entire infancy, she is now 9.5 months old and crawling swiftly. It seems that instantly my dog has decided to start treating her like another, smaller, younger dog that needs to be aggressively put below him in the pack order. He's growling around his food, and just got aggressive towards her over a toy. My dog has had a random aggressive bone, we love him, but fear an accident with our daughter. Has anyone ever gone though this???!!! My gut, as a mother, instantly wants to get the dog out of my house, but I do love him and want to give him the benefit of the doubt. Or is the benefit of the doubt to much of a risk?!! PLEASE tell me how you dealt with this! NEED HELP ASAP!

I understand completely what you are going through. On Friday I had to give our doggie to a new owner. We felt it was too much of a risk for our daughter. It wasn't fair to keep our dog locked up all day so we found her a new home with an elderly lady. My daughter is 11 months old and our dog was a little over a year old. I tried working with her but she wouldn't back down.
