Jess is generally very shy when she first meets people, she is very playful and obedient at home. Before I moved to the lakes she socialised quite happily with other dogs in the park, although somewhat boisterously as she likes to play rough. She has been spayed. I only tend to let her off the lead now when she is in the forest as her behaviour cannot be trusted if there are other animals around. Today my friend let her off the lead in the park and she ran the full length of the field to attack a man that was jogging. She has never done this before although she is also starting to show aggression to males that come into the house and nipped a sky engineer last week. She is obviously reprimanded verbally when she shows this behaviour and i have tried a muzzle. As I say, she never used to be like this and Ive had her since I took her from RSPCA kennels when she was 4 months old. I have a greyhound male the same age and unfortunately he is beginning to copy her behaviour,
