Aggressive male yorkshire
Hello all, this is my first post, and I am desperate for advice.
I have had two male yorkshire before, both now passed os told age, one castrated young the other no, both never aggressive. I was given by my daughters a 4 month old yorkshire male, even though I had decided no more pets, (and clearly told them this, due to Summer travel work!) I wasn't happy at the time, but impossible for shop to take back. I was very serous about training, and also saw a trainer/behaviourist for a few hours, he is very intelligent. I was thinking of maybe breeding him later, (his parents have pedigree, but have no contact to find if one of parents aggressive) but for last few months he has got very aggressive with his food, if you pass near him, he will try to bite and goes nuts, so I have started giving him food in my hands, which is ok. But the other day he took a toy from floor from my twin granddaughters aged 2, a large lego (he has loads of his own toys) and when I said give, he went to bite me, the same day he was trying to 'mount' one of the babies, I told him no, and went to take him of her back, he got aggressive, and freaked my daughter out, who wants him put down! It was Madame who was the instigator, of buying the pup, one month after my last york died, won't be happening!! More recently he has been pulling a blanket out of his bed/ Large open crate area, (not one he has had for long, and when Iw ent to put it back, he again went to attack me. Not yet bit, but very close. We spend a lot of time with him, and travel with him, he is not alone often, and can be adorable, but demanding when he wants you to play with him. Of course I am thinking of castration, vet says 50/50 chance it will help, but I have also heard that it could make it worse. I would really appreciate, advice if anybody had their dog castrated and situation got worse or better. I haven't the finance to redo training, as I had a cyst removed from him, last October, and 4 teeth removed. Live in the South of France, vet bills very expensive, and I only have some Summer work. So by the time I have finances it may be to late

Hi and welcome to YorkieTalk! My Tinkerbell was food and toy aggressive. I worked with her by trading up with 3 identical toys. Eventually she learned when I took one from her, she would get one back, so she became less crazy about it.

He is still young enough to get neutered, his hormones are raging, testosterone taking over. Neuter now, it will take a short while after neutering for all testosterone to get out of his system. The longer you wait the aggression will become a habit that will be hard to break if you wait to long to neuter, you must neuter ASAP PLEASE.....
