I have my 2 year old Ridgeback male in a basic training class with about 10 other dogs. The first class he did fine but the second class he acted very aggressivly towards all the other dogs. He is neutered, but he has not had much opportunity to socialize with other dogs up until now. What is the best way to handle this? He is very obedient when we are training but when the instructor is talking he is trying to start fights with other dogs. Should I take him out of the class or do you think that it will get better as he gets use to being around the other dogs? Please help, I still have 5 more classes!
I do not think you should stop the class. You should talk to the trainer about this. That is why you are there. vetcare
