Re: Very Aggressive Behaviourů towards People AND dogs!
Well, I wish I could offer some help. The thyroid check does sound like a good idea, and I would pursue that. Just so you know you are not alone... When Willie goes to the Vet, he is a happy and well-mannered dog who loves everyone. The staff AND the DVM (Dr. Tim) all say that they have seen plenty of aggressive Vizslas; very high-strung and aggressive, and that Willie is exceptional in this regard. My previous dog, a Vizsla mix, had the same kind of loving personality as Willie has. I have had to try to convince them that aggression isn't normally a trait found in the typical Vizsla personality. So again, in your situation, I would try to find a medical explanation. There has to be a reason, as this isn't typical.
