Hanz black schnauzer on ground

I bought my black schnauzer from a breeder at 6 weeks old. I brought him home at 10 weeks. He was not your typical lovely dovey schnauzer. He seemed a challange to train. I took him to all kinds of intense doggy training even boot camp for dogs.

He started showing agressive behavior after he got attacked at 13 weeks from a Frenchie. The Frenchie clearly waa not friendly and slit one of his eye lids permenant damage.

Second time he started showing aggressive behavior was when he got attacked by an adult Pittbull that was so called friendly at 16 weeks no damage

Third time he started showing signs of agression was at a dog park and a German Shepard out of nowhere both off leash lundged at my schnauzer and attacked him at 8 months old

Basically now my black schnauzer is 2 years old and gets very aggressive towards those breeds.

He just recently being on leash slipped out of hands by accident. I was placing my 8 month old schnauzer pup non aggressive loves everyone in the car. All of a sudden my 2 year old black schnauzer bolted and as I ran after him he was going after a Pittbull/Plott Hound mix puppy in my loft complex. He did not hurt the dog just growled and hugged him or what looked like a wrestling hug. Of course the girl cried and told me to keep my dogs away from hers.

My dogs were on leash just was too much to juggle. Its not an excuse for my black schnauzer. I do need help with this very very quickly or i may have to give him away

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

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.

All the best,
