Our black lab is lovely at home and well behaved until he goes to stay with family while we are on holiday,then he turns into a snarling beast while he's there.He is just turning three and hasnt been neutered.Im guessing from reading the response that he's trying to out rank the other people in the house(except my mother in law,he loves her)and now would be a good time to neuter him.Someone has said he might be a nervous dog as he can give off an odour when scared and he had this odour when we picked him up.how could we help with the nervousness?

Housebreaking, chewing, feeding Most medical questions are best handled through a local vet. I try to base my answers on carefully proven methods confirmed by my own experience. Much of what I know about dogs, I have learned raising a puppy every year since 1991 for a large dog guide school. I am familiar with several similar programs. Nobody is in a better position to know dogs, need ones with long, active life, and share what they know, than the service dog schools. In addition I have done extensive reading. My answers have much more to back them than the limited experience any one dog owner can have. PLEASE DON'T SEND ME MEDICAL OR BREEDING QUESTIONS. An internet forum is not the appropriate place for them. Even if I could tell what was wrong from a handful of symptoms, you would still need to get the medications from your local vet. Breeding should be left to those not needing to ask simple, basic questions. Books have been written about it. Rather than ask me a question, start reading. Those unwilling to do the work it takes to produce quality puppies should spay/neuter their pets at 6 months. I will not answer questions that sound like a poorly prepared breeder.
