We have a four monhth old GSP that is well behaved most of the time but occasionly he is aggressive towards us barking, growling, and even biting us with no provacation. We're not sure how to handle this behavior. Any suggestions ? Bob

German Shorthair pointers love to hear the sound of their voice so they tend to bark and growl when they are playing or in a playful mood. I believe it's a dominance thing with the aggressive attitude. He wants someone to play with but at the same time when he starts growling and being aggressive need to show him that your in charge not him. A good way to do that is if he gets too rough take him by the scruff of the neck and hold him to the ground and say NO. That lets him know that your in charge not him.

You could bring him or her to a dogy school or a dog trainer.
