Hey anons, my wife gave birth to our son two weeks ago.

Hey anons, my wife gave birth to our son two weeks ago.

The problem is, we brought him home, and my dog has been extremely aggressive since. He's an alaskan malamute and he's been growling, teeth bared, and my wife is genuinely scared he might hurt our son. I am too. I'm not sure what to do because I've had this guy for seven years and he's never been like this before. He nipped my hand enough to make it bleed when I tried to keep him from snapping at my son. We've been keeping him locked up in the guest room but he bounded over my wife to get to the baby and started barking like he has never has before.

I think my dog hates my son. What do? He's been usually well-behaved. He's friendly with our cat and didn't have such issues when we brought him in as a kitten. Cat doesn't care too much about the baby aside from initial curiosity.

I feel like my older son hates the youngest. Wtf do I do? I've never been a dad before, and I want to really savor the memories, but this anxiety (and constant barking and howling if we lock him up) is fricking ruining it.

      I'm not effeminate in the slightest, so I'm not sure what this even means.

      Unfortunately this happens sometime. You can look into hiring a trainer or something to help but right now your son is at risk of being killed by this dog. I've been attacked by a stray dog before when I was a kid and THEY ABSOLUTELY FRICK YOU UP VERY QUICKLY. Rehome the dog or hire someone asap who knows wtf they are doing.

      I'm looking into getting one, money is no concern. But my wife wants the dog gone. I don't believe it's fair to me because he was with me for some of my darkest moments. If not for him, I would not be here today.

      Animals have strong senses. Especially dogs. Your dog probably knows that your son is trouble. Maybe your dog can sense that your son is going to be a psychopath (people are born as psychopaths, it’s not something that you can fix). I think this is likely, because if your dog didn’t react to you brining a kitten home; this probably isn’t a territorial reaction. There is probably something seriously wrong with your son.

      Is this actually possible?

            It doesn't play out that way. If anything the dog becomes more violent. Dogs/wolves don't do that alpha shit you see on memes. OP would just be introducing a higher stress more violent environment which could make for a more aggressive dog that has shown aggressive tendencies in the first place.

            It isn't a pack hierarchy situation. It becomes purely a who can beat up who. And the dog knows it can take on a baby.

    Rehome The canine. Unfortunately the well-being of your child is threatened by an animal. And sadly, animals cannot be reasoned with. He has already escalated to biting, a “nip” is a smaller bit. You shouldn’t gamble with your child’s safety. I know that it is difficult to part with a beloved pet but you have to put your son first.

    Beat his ass when he howls from the kennel and smack him one if he shows resentment for the kids. The dog will quickly find its position on the totem pole and become protective. When it settles down, you can pet while sitting with kids and teach the dog how to appreciate them.

    If he kills your son, he will be killed too and every positive memory you had of him will be destroyed. It will also likely end your relationship with your wife as she will always blame you for not getting rid of the dog.

    We understand that animals are important enough to people to become a primary focus in their lives, but they simply are not our own species, and are not worth the life of a human, especially not the life of one of our own children. There's a reason everyone says the dog has got to go, OP. Even a statistically tiny but non-zero chance that the dog might attack your son is not acceptable, and as a parent you should know that. If you have to shoot the dog to save your son, you need to shoot that dog. Thankfully all you have to do is move the dog to another loving home. Count your blessings on it, yeah?

    Discipline him the same way Alaskan malamutes discipline each other for unruly behaviour in a pack.
    If you want to keep that dog but want it to behave, you have no choice but to resort to physical means of discipline when it shows physical aggression.
    It is either that, or surrender that dog.
    Dogs aren't human, and you can't treat it the same way you'd treat a human.
    It won't respond to you the same way a human would anyway, and that means your dog might not understand that your son is infinitely more valuable than his life to any reasonable human.
    If you have trouble deciding between a human and a dog, then you are too stupid to raise a human child, but I refuse to believe that you are that stupid.
    So, what's it going to be?

        I don't personally know the dog, so I don't know how aggressive it is. Since the OP sounds like he want to exhaust all options before having to decide on surrendering the dog, I am just offering an advice.
        Did I tell him to keep the dog? Did I tell him to expose his baby to the risk of death?
        In any case, this is the internet where people are going to share their ideas for their own reason, and at the end of the day, it is OP's value judgement.
        No one can protect him from his own stupidity or recklessness, nor can anyone protect the baby from OP's stupidity or recklessness, yet here you are spouting autistic bullshit like you are some hero out to save the baby's life. Hey, there is nothing wrong with that as long as you are willing to back it up with your own action.
        Go ahead, let's see it Batman.
        Do you think OP would even want to listen to your advice when you make accusations like that? In any case, why don't you care about OP or his wife? The dog can maul him and his wife to death if it is that aggressive and unpredictable.
        If you had said the dog is a danger to EVERYONE for the same reason it is danger to the baby, and for that reason it must be surrendered, I would have thought that you have some credibility.
        You are here for nothing other than to claim your false sense of moral superiority over others like a crazy lesbian b***h.

You can just establish you personally aren't something to be fricked with.

    Malamutes have very strong sense of smell and your dog probably detected that your son does not smell like you. Olfactory sensations given off by the owner are hereditary.

    Sorry to say that OP, your dog just knows that your son is not yours because it cannot find any smell commonality between you and "your" son.

        if the baby passes the test, all you can try to do before you get rid of them, is to take the baby in your arms, show him to the dog, let the dog smell the baby, calmly look the dog in the eyes, and explain to him, in english and using hand gestures, that the baby is yours, and he needs to be cool with the baby

        the dog will understand this. if he accepts the baby, fine; if he doesn't, fine, he is banished from your pack

        if he is not loyal to your son, he isn't loyal to you - he was never a good dog. he was just eating your food all those years, and now, he can frick off like a b***h.

        on the other hand, if the kid isn't yours, get rid of the woman and the kid and keep the dog

        I did exactly that with my son, he didn't take it well. He tried to snap at him and that's what resulted in him nipping at my hand and drawing blood.

        I want to get that paternity test. I just don't know if I should ask her right away or give it a week and wait for things to cool down. I dunno man. He's never been like this before, and I trust this dog. He hid my benzos the night I was planning to OD. He's smart as frick.

    Your "child" is a changeling, anon. Your real baby is already dead. Anons ITT are moronic. Your dog is trying to protect you from that evil thing. Listen to him.

    Update. Told my wife I want a paternity test. She went really quiet and now isn't answering my calls. I'm feeling really lost right now. My dog sensed my distressed and is hanging out with me. Is she mad because I caught her out?

        I'm sure this is a LARP but why the frick would you tell your wife and allow her to try some underhanded shit? Just take the kid to get the test without saying anything.

        I didn't know that was possible. What kind of underhanded shit can she do?

    I think the dog can sense y'all fear and is reacting to it. You're not supposed to show fear around animals. It has become a feedback loop.
