Acting aggressively doesn’t make him a bad dog, he just made a bad choice. He could have communicated his needs differently, let’s teach him how!”
Connie Cleveland taught obedience classes to pet owners for over 30 years. She welcomed dogs that acted aggressively.
When you put a dog in a situation that he finds uncomfortable, he will do whatever he can to change it. Sadly, many dogs discover that aggression changes situations ... perhaps your dog was intimidated by a larger dog approaching him, he was uncomfortable with a stranger coming into the yard or did not want to share his bone.
Don’t settle for a lifetime of keeping your dog away from other dogs and people, or being embarrassed by his aggressive behavior. You can teach him that his aggression is inappropriate, as well as how he should behave.

😤 Frustrated by your inability to enjoy him in public,
😩 Disheartened as it seems you cannot enjoy him as the companion you had hoped for…
