Newly installed bees just attacked my dog

I just installed a new package of bees about a week ago and they have been pretty aggressive. In another post I made, someone suggested that they are likely aggressive because the bees that come in a package are not related to the queen that comes with it and to just give it some time (a moth or so) for the old bees to die off and for new brood to take over the hive.

It's one thing if I get stung, but I just witnessed my dog getting swarmed on. She wasn't even near the hive. I don't think she got stung, but when I got her inside there was still one bee on her forehead actively trying to sting her.

Should I euthanize this hive? Is there anything I can do?
