If you own dog begins to bark at you aggressively out of the blues, there could be several reason for this.
Your Dog May Be ill
Dogs infected with rabies may become disoriented and as such may not recognize you the owner for brief moments resulting in the dog barking at you. There are other signs that can tell if your dog has rabies such as foaming of the mouth, seizure, weakness, loss of appetite and even paralysis.
Your dog will bark at you aggressively if for some reason, medical or otherwise, become temporarily disorientated and may not recognize you properly.
You have Abused Him
If your dog begins to bark at you maybe it is because of very bad treatment vetted out to the animal and the dog no longer sees you as someone to love but someone who will hurt him and hence he sees you as a threat.
What To Do
Bring the dog to the Vet
Normally, dogs do not turn on their owners, so it may be a sign of some illness in the animal. As soon as the dog settles down, call in an animal expert if you are afraid to approach the dog yourself and take it to the vet immediately. The vet will run a series of test which can tell you if the Dog is well or not.
Do Not Be Aggressive
Do not tell the barking dog to "shut up" or pick up any type of missile to sail at the animal, that will only make matters worst,
