Why has your dalmatian become aggressive?

If you spoil your dog, it will get aggressive if you try to take its food away or something.

Older dogs tend to get a bit snappy and intolerant if they're in pain. Arthritis can sometimes cause an aggressive response, as can deafness. If you approach any dog from behind, and it does not notice you due to deafness, it may have a fearful, aggressive reaction at first. Dalmatians can also develop eye problems. Once again, if your dog does not immediately recognise you due to imperfect sight, its first tendency might be aggression.
