You realize, of course, that almost all aggression in young puppies (not all but danged close) is defensive and based on fear, right?   And that 'fear aggression' is a phrase for a reason?   And it doesn't mean the dog cowers, tail tucks and runs away and only bites when cornered. And that growling doesn't mean 'I want to bite you' but "I am uncomfortable and am warning you/trying to make you stop so I don't *have* to bite to make you stop' .  And that dogs with truly aggressive intent are almost always silent?   You know those things, I'm sure.

 

I mean assuming we discount over-arousal and over-excitement and just being mouthy, which I am doing.
