I live with my in-laws and they have a dog with a hot and cold disposition. One minute hes loving all over her the next he is growling. He has already attempted to bite her. It was only a grazing injury but I'm worried about the next time. How do I teach my 17m old to stay away from the dog when the grandmother just tries to keep them separated? Im at a loss when it comes to discussing this with her. My only recourse is training my child. Please help.
