  • My dachshund is aggressive/fearful of men; she'll sometimes bite or at least snap. How can I stop this?

    The dog has never been abused by our family; her past is a complete mystery to us. None of the males in our home are aggressive and have always treated her like a little princess. Recently the dog has barked unstoppably when she even hears heavy footsteps. She won't come out of the bedroom, or even out from under the bed when she is home with a guy, and she's lost a fair amount of weight. I don't want to get rid of her, but my stepfather is upset because she bit my little sister thinking it was him. Any suggestions?
