I have a 2 yr old eskimo female and she is very
protective over my self and my husband can
not get near him and when he gets up to leave for work or bed she goes into an aggressive mood and it gets scary. What can I do to help this situation?

You need to work dilligently in some training with your dog, even a behaviorist if necessary. I'm not sure if her behavior is too late for something like NILF, but don't let her be the boss of your house, this only reinforces bad behavior. If possible, I would probably recommend a behaviorist!

You should always show her that you are the boss.

paying someone like a behaviorist or trainer is smart but if you don't want to pay someone just turn on your tv to the ANIMAL PLANET and there is a good show that i like to watch called It's Me or the Dog and the trainer Victoria shows many ways to make your dog behave and put you back in charge. I watch it everyday and work with my Eskie a lot, and we are both benifiting.

my eskie does the exact same thing. my best friends son is 2 years old and my dog adores him. if you even try to kiss the baby he gets mad and even tries to bite you. he also does not like if you hit someone, he will attack you. my brothers think its a fun little game to "beat each other up" and see who pup will attack first. we've been trying to train him for a year now, but i think maybe its just the breed... just so you know you aren't alone in this!
