I have had my jrt for almost two years now and about 4 or 5 months ago he started growling at me and my husband when we tried to put him in his cage or take something from his mouth that he was not supposed to have...and now he growls horribly and snaps and us even when we are in bed at night and we move him and he has tried to bite me several times and if he does not stop this we are going to have to get rid of him...and i am very attached to him and dont want to but i dont want a dog that is going to bite me everytime i turn around..do you have any suggestions to get rid of this behavior or any reasons why he is acting this way...i have read a lot of other questions and the answeres all say to go to the vet and get a behavioral trainer and i am in college with a VERY LOW income and TIGHT budget are there any other ways to take care of this at home rather than pay an arm and a leg for a behavioral trainer?? thanks
