A collie dog kept anywhere other than a large farm, will invariably not like the environment he is kept in, and is likely to react to that by baring its teeth and even biting. The reason is that a collie likes large areas to run about in, and a smallholding, in other words, a small garden, will never satisfy a collie dog for long.

My 4 year old collie cross has recently started teeth baring at my 11 month old daughter and following her around the house. The teeth baring is sometimes accompanied by low
growling.
I'm concerned that this behaviour may escalate. Do you have any ideas?

Prior to going on vacation for 2 weeks, my golden adored me and new me as the authority figure of the household, not wanting to greet any of my kids until I properly greeted her. After leaving her with my 18 son for 2 weeks, I came back to a golden who was aloof and is now baring her teeth and piddling a bit when I come in the door. I understand that this is not aggression, but how can I stop her from this behavior?
