Aggressive Great Dane?

by Shannon
(Queensbury, NY)

Hi there,

I am concerned about the behavior of my 5 month old Great Dane puppy. We didn't get him until he was 3 months old, and he was pretty shy at that point. We have made a concerted effort to socialize him by walking him in public places, and he has taken a six week long puppy training course. He gets along well with our 2 year old uncut Golden Retriever, and my moms 6 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He is getting better about being around strangers, but still will growl and lunge every once in a while. He is awful around other dogs, however. Even the ones that he sees every week in class. He lunges, bares his teeth, and I honestly think that he would attack if we were to let him. He hasn't hurt anyone yet, but I'm terrified that he will. He is already 75 lbs, and I want to squash this before it becomes more of an issue. Everyone keeps telling me that it is just a puppy thing, and that it will resolve itself. I honestly think that it is more than that. What do you think?

Nothing In Life Is Free

Nothing In Life Is Free

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.
