i have a 7 month old, she was spayed about a month ago. ever since she has had some behavioral problems. im not sure if they are related to being spayed or not though.

she now has aggressive tendencies that seem to come out of no where. she will growl, bark, and lunge at you. sometimes shes guarding a toy or a rock from outside but other times nothings happening shes acting fine and then suddenly barks and lunges. she hasnt actually bit anyone yet but it seems like shes about to.

does anyone have any suggestions as to why this is happening?
will an obedience class help with this? if so does anyone have any suggestions for a reputable one in syracuse ny?
