Intro Timestamps – 00:00 – 01:16 Segment 1 – 01:18 – 10:40 Has your puppy gotten snapped at by an adult dog? Or has your adult dog irritably jumped on a puppy for no apparent reason? In this episode, I’ll explain the action that may look to you, like unprovoked aggression but in reality is a normal and to be expected correction of the youngster’s behavior.
