Anyone have ideas on what could be affecting our dog s demeanor??

We have a 7 year old English Doberman. She is a healthy dog, but has begun to be aggressive with our 8 year old American Doberman. They have been together for 2 years now, so we don t know what has changed. Both our neutered/spayed. She is loving loving towards us, but we are concerned that her aggression towards us could change.

    Time for a vet check up I'd say as this could be health related.

    But it is more likely that it is the 8 yr old has an underlying health issue and is weaker and that is why the 7 yr old has become aggressive. This is not unusual.

    You have no reason to suspect her aggression would be directed to you at all. Dog / dog aggression is totally different.

      We were 1/2 asleep this morning when we first read your response. 😂. So, I just want to clarify our understanding if that is alright.

      You're thinking our 7 year old English Doberman is sensing a health issue with our 8 year old Doberman Pinscher, and is trying to alert us to it.  Is this accurate?
