"They go through a fear period around this age (Riley is 11 months too). They are supposed to grow out of it as long as nothing "happens" to make the behavior permanent by reinforcing it."

Why is my dog growling/barking all the sudden?

Maya turned 2 years in March. Last summer, she was cool as a cucumber when we all sat on the porch.   All of the sudden this summer, she’s occasionally growling at passersby, cars pulling in/out of driveways, and people down the street walking AWAY from her. Yesterday I had in in the backyard and she started barking (I honestly thought it was another dog) and she ran towards the front because the mail lady was there.  She knows her so when she got to her she immediately sat and waited for…See More

"I don't mind if Riley alert barks, what I don't like is when someone approaches to pet her when we are right there with her and she barks in their face and backs away.  That is fear behavior and it can escalate so it's not…"

"Thanks. She’s out there on a long lead as were coming in and out doing chores and whatnot. We don’t put her out alone without eyes on longer than 5 minutes. "

Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle replied to Rusty Shackleford's discussion Why is my dog growling/barking all the sudden?
"She's decided it's her job to protect you. If you're not there to protect, she's fine. You will need to ask your trainer how to work on that. I do have to ask, are you saying she is left outside alone on a porch? "

Why is my dog growling/barking all the sudden?

Maya turned 2 years in March. Last summer, she was cool as a cucumber when we all sat on the porch.   All of the sudden this summer, she’s growling at passersby, cars pulling in/out of driveways, and people down the street walking AWAY from her. She doesn’t lunge at people and when someone’s coming to the door, or if we’re on a hike, her tail’s wagging while she’s growling and she moves towards them submissively. The interesting part is shes she’s only doing it when we’re outside with her. If…See More
