Should you have any questions relating to your dog's training or behavior let us know here. Keep in mind that some serious problem such as aggression may sometimes require that you seek professional help.

Suggestions given here are simply just that, suggestions. You, as the dog owner, knows your dog better than anyone and should figure out what training methods work best for your dog and which ones are ineffective. We, as well as professionals, can only offer advice and possibly tell you what may be wrong.

However, this forum isn't only for questions, if you find an article or training method that worked for you, let us know and we'll give you some feed back!

Steven

Hi, My boyfriend and I have a 3 yr old German Shepherd x Great Dane. He is very intelligent but has recently begun to take a more dominating and aggressive posture when meeting other dogs while out for a walk. He pulls and whines when he notices them with his head and tail held high. This is also the stance he has now adopted when in the off leash area when a new dog enters. We can sometimes get him to sit or drop beside us (I guess it depends on his mood) at the side of the path when another dog passes but most of the time its a short struggle. We have noticed though that he acts more appropriately when it's just one of us taking him out, but we would like to enjoy it when we are all out together. I have my suspicions that it is through fear or anxiety while on the leash as when he is off leash he has a good sniff then loses interest. Do you have any idea's on how to direct his behaviour to a more appropriate direction?
