Also we love him dearly and he's a great addition to our family, I just worry he's uncomfortable or I'm doing something to upset him..
I was more worried I was going to have an aggressive dog.
I agree, it's more about what to DO about problem behaviors, rather than the label. BUT, at the same time, this is a 6 week old puppy, and I have seen many situations in the shelter I volunteer at where puppies were labeled as "aggressive" when they were really just exhibiting rude puppy behaviors and hadn't been taught manners. Sometimes these puppies are given up, sometimes put to sleep, but, once there is this label, often times they are treated differently.It's not about whether or not the dog is aggressive. An "aggressive dog" is kind of a cloudy description. I knew a guy who's pitbull was the most loving dog in the world to humans, but actually killed other dogs. Was he an aggressive dog? The debate can go on forever and won't help the dog anyways. In order to help the dog, you have to focus on what triggers certain aggressive behaviors in the dog, and then avoid triggering those behaviors while at the same time desensitizing him to those triggers.
