    hi everyone, I need some advice desperately. My dog Buster is a six month old lab/retriever and is over all very well behaved. However, he gets in these crazy moods where he attacks me. He will try to bite me and jump on me. Although his tail is wagging, he is showing his teeth and his eyes look wild (that is the best I can describe them). He is also growling and making noises I never hear him make unless he is in this mood. I notice it is worse when I wear long sleeves but the incidents do occur even when I wear short sleeves. He doesn't usually hurt me but he has "pinched" me which his teeth a few times leaving bruises and so far he has only done this with me. I have tried holding his snout shut, pinning him to the ground, holding his tongue, ignoring him, putting my knee up (which just seems to make it easier for him to hump me) and I've even tried grabbing his fur on his neck. Can anyone please please please give me some advice on how to fix this! Thanks!

    Hi there has he had any training at all? If he hasnt you need to let him know who is in charge in the household. retaliating as you are doing is just doing what the dog wants you to do. Does he have a collar? If so keep the leash handy, when he tries it again slip the leash on then hold the leash firmly on a short hold but do not do it aggressively. now hold the leash as long as it takes to let him use his energy up, he will learn that you will not tolerate the behaviour. You then need to teach him some leash control. If you want some more info email me.
