Hi JaCustomer,

My name is Jane. I have been working professionally with animals especially dogs in both health and behavioral issues for over 18 years. I have over 14,000 satisfied customers. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

In order to supply you with the best information, I do need to ask for some additional information. Once I receive your answer, it will likely take me about 30-45 minutes to type up your response. I do have a family member in ICU so it may take longer depending upon when I receive your response. I hope you can be patient.

I want to make sure I have the facts correct.
Your dog is NOT aggressive to the new female dog?
Are both dogs fixed?
How old is the female?
Have you given treats with the new female dog around?
Is the aggression in your house or only the other dog's house?
What exactly did your dog do and what was the circumstances?
What did you do when he displayed this behavior?
Is not putting him in that situation the only thing you have tried so far?

Hi,

I was wondering if you could take the time to respond to the request for more information I sent. Once I receive your responses, I should be able to answer your question. Perhaps you believe you responded already. If you did, it doesn't appear on your question page. You can scroll up to see our previous correspondence. If you could repeat them, I would appreciate it. Here are the questions again.
