Growling is a sign of aggression. If the Beabull pup is showing signs of growling with the members of the family, you need to stand and be the authority in the house.

In a pack, the leader is not always challenged and you need to have the same respect into the proper place.

Some pups may show signs of aggression thru foods, toys, and treats. If the pup growls over the food, you can place the food in a particular time or make a schedule for eating. When you are fixing his food, let him sit down first or stay in another area where he can jump and be excited. As soon as the food is ready, that is just the time that you can call him for feeding and make him sit down first again while you are still holding the bowl. You need to wait until such time that he is quiet for around 5 seconds and then that is the only time you can put the food down.  This will let him feel and he will be reminded that you are still the leader and you are in full control of his food. He will not show aggression to you if he knows that you are his source of food.

This shouldn’t progress until he becomes mature, because this is not a good attitude.
