We just purchased a female Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. She is extremely aggressive to our standard poodle (male). Our little one is 10 weeks old. Does anyone have any advice besides obedience training. We already signed up!

Don't confuse aggression with rough play. My Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is very rough with all dogs bigger than he, grabbing ears, necks collars--just trying to herd or make the other dog play. You will know if it is aggression, the growling and biting are quite scary and aggressive!

Our almost 2 year old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier female is very playful too. It seems aggresive but I agree it's all play. She can take down a boxer. Actually plows him over. Loves to play!

At this age, it is probably play. However, do not take this lightly, the Wheaten is a dog aggressive breed and this behavior should definately be discouraged. They are terriers and will not back down from a fight. Not a problem at 10 weeks old, big problem at 2 years.
