Why does my dog growl and attempt to bite me when I take his leash off?

Question by LivinLife: Why does my dog and attempt to me when I his off?
Ok so whenever i come home and try to my dogs off, he starts growling and attacking me. He doesn't do it when i put the leash on, and he doesn't attack me when i just pick him up. Whenever i take his leash off or wash his paws he becomes a completely different dog. What can i do?

He could be somewhat leash aggressive. Maybe he thinks that leash=walk and when you take it off he gets mad because he wants a walk. You could call a local professional and have them help train your dog also.

    I suspect he is trying to get you to play with him. I believe that’s what my dog is trying to convey when he behaves this way. I also suspect that it is not a good thing to reward him with what he wants because that will only reinforce bad behavior. If you have a JR, they have lots of energy and can get bored and destructive. It’s probably best to make sure he has daily play time to release excess energy. I take mine in the back yard and let him run ragged by chasing a stick. When he misbehaves, ignore or punish him (e.g., some form of confinement) until he learns this behavior is unacceptable.
