German Shepherd tendencies
by: Anonymous

I believe all dogs and owners can be trained. I read a lot on leadership and communication with dogs. Socialization is very important when it comes to German Shepherds. I am Alpha, I do all training, socializing, playing and walking my Shepherd. He just recently has become aggressive with my husband especially when it comes to his tennis balls, so my solution is that my husband go to class and train him so Winston starts to respect him. The more my husband gets involved and follows my lead in training him, the outcome will be positive. What ever you do, do it with positive reinforcement. German Shepherds are very very smart, we have to be on our toes every day with them consistently challenging them physically and mentally.

Been there
by: Penn

You NEED to stand close to your dog had on hips feet a little apart and if he growls then grab him by scruff, pull him to floor and hold him in place telling him NO!! Show him you are alpha not him.
Hand feed him for a few meals. Let him know his food comes from you.
Take him to get puppy training. It's a quick 6 would class most places so you can learn to show him you are in charge. Never Strike him.
You will get imediate change. He sees you as weak. Be a parent to him untill he shows respect.
I have a female and she is stubborn. You will enjoy him now

dominance training is bunk
by: Anonymous

I see too much dominance and intimidation training going on. A dog that is feeling threatened (intimidated) by its owners on a regular basis is going to become aggressive. I've never stood over, shouted at, hit or otherwise "dominated" either of my dogs and neither have ever growled at me or shown any aggression towards me (even when I hold them still at the vet or put my hand in their bowl while they're eating). Don't use prong collars or shock collars - gain the trust of your dog with positive training methods and let your dog learn that you are trustworthy and gentle and they won't have any reason to be aggressive.

Similar Aggressive Dog
by: Anonymous

My Shepard also has aggressive tendencies toward men and small dogs. He is on Prozac and is in training. We use a prong collar and it is a continual process to get him to overcome his aggression. He has never been aggressive toward my family, only visitors. Please don't give up. I know it can be over whelming but finding a good trainer that you can trust is valuable. They aren't as expensive as people think.

Shepherds are very smart
by: Anonymous

Please don't put a two yr old shepherd down. You need to be responsible and take him to training. He's doing that stuff because he thinks he can. Shepherds are very smart dogs and he has these behaviors. You need to teach him otherwise.

Please get professional help
by: Adam

You need to put this dog on a "Nothing in Life Is Free" program, right away.

Buy a muzzle and a training collar. Start MAKING HIM do everything/anything you ask him to do.

He's going to challenge you. But with the muzzle and the training collar/leash, you're now in a position to win. Do not back down. In the end, make him do what you want him to do.

Taking this approach will help you start to become the pack leader in his eyes. When this happens, you'll start to be in a position to correct him for the aggressive behavior.

I wouldn't hesitate to seek the guidance and supervision of a professional trainer in your area, too, for added peace of mind.

This issue CAN be fixed, however.
