I know a lady who trained dog, worked with with, etc and had goldens herself. One, a female, started acing "weird" and at first she growled at dogs that were there for training, but not her housemate. Then she started growing and snapping at him. Then she started growling at the lady and sometimes snapping. BUT as soon as she had done this, her head and tail dropped and it was as if she knew what she did, but could not stop herself. After test it was determined she had a "mis-wiring_ in her brain. She knew what she was doing, didn't' want to do it, but couldn't' stop. Then she was miserable because she had done something she didn't want to do, that she knew was wrong. The lady finally had to send her to the bridge bcaue she was so miserable doing what she didn't' want to do and nto being able to stop it. So sad. Was the first time I ever of such a thing. I think this dog really needs to be checked out for such a problem.
