4 Year Old Aggressive Siberian Husky

My dog is a rescue - we got him at 9 months old and were already his 4th home. He had a lot of behavioural issues that, over the past 3 and a bit years, we have been able to curb with training, patience, love and the help of our 6 y/o female.

The one issue that we are still having with him, and don't know how to break, is that if there is an agressive dog (barking, jumping, etc) nearby - even on the other side of the road, Jack seems to go into a trance and just lash out at whatever he is closest to - be it our other dog or one of our legs. It seems very much like a knee jerk reaction, and we can't seem to get him to stop.

We have tried to make him sit while the dog passes, we have tried to break his attention from the other dog, etc. but he usually reacts so quickly that we don't have time to react. He doesn't seem to bite to injure - although a couple of times he has broken skin - it seems like he gets worked up so quickly and just reacts - not even really concious of what he is doing.

Is there any way to break this reaction?

Like I said - it is different from when a dog is saying "I'm the boss" or "back off, you're getting too close" It seems like he just goes robotic into this reaction and snaps out of it as soon as we can break his mind away.

How To Stop Aggressive Siberian Husky
by: Adam G. Katz

You can definitely fix this behavior, yourself. I recommend that you download our "Secrets" book, because you'll at least have some context and a road map to success with your dog-- to understand what you'll need to do. If you read the book and still have questions, then I'll be in a better position to help you because you'll be able to understand how to use the techniques I'm recommending.
