This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Separation Anxiety

My boyfriend and I have a 3 year old Cane Corso. He has been our baby up until we recently found out that we are pregnant and due to have the baby in December. We have some concerns about Oley and would like to find a trainer to be able to work with for his issues. Issues #1 is he is dog aggressive (which is the easy issue) Issue #2 is he has been people aggressive as well and has bitten a truck delivery driver. Issue #3 is he can be weird about his own personal space. Issue #4 is that he can not be crated or left alone for more than 10 minutes. He has a long story behind him but all in all he has had a wonderful home we have had him since he was 8 weeks old and we have done everything we can for the situation. Again I am looking for someone to help come work with him. I have him on a very close watch at this point but am seeking more help with the baby coming. If you could please let me know if Bark Busters would be of any help I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

We are getting a puppy next week and we are in dire need of someone to train her gently from the get go. We want her to be well mannered, sleep through the night in a crate, house breaking, behavior toward other dogs and people. Basically, we want a puppy that quickly learns good manners and behavior and we have no idea how to do it.

Hello,rnMy dog tends to get very aggressive when it comes to any new toys or his food/treats. For example, when he'd be playing with a new toy, and me or another family member would try walking by, he'd growl assuming we were going to take the toy. There have been situations where he would go to nip or bite, but hasn't really gotten us from it yet. I was wondering if there was a way to train this out of him and how..? rnrnThank you.

Two things I have approximately 3 years ago I turn my dog on to tennis balls she is now obsessed with them which would not be a big problem however she will put them under the furniture and then she has eaten through the furniture to get to him if you're not there quick enough to get them. Second thing is I've noticed lately the last couple of months I'll take her out before bed will poop and pee I'll get up in the morning and they will be poop and sometimes pee on my laminate floor. Third problem is I have 3 dogs going to be for in the house at this time there's Maggie who is a Duschound, Baxter who is a Papillon, and pickles who is a Boston Terrier who is also death. Maggie is aggressive with Baxter and pickles over food in her Bowl if they even get near it. Maggie will go after Baxter and Baxter cannot fight back. Maggie will go after pickles and they will fight the point that we have a hard time getting them apart. It has come to where they have drawn blood from each other and it hurt each other. Can you help me? What can I do?

This past year he has begun to snap at children. He gets along fine with my nephews, 7,4 and 1, unless they start play fighting and getting loud. He also has started barking at people if they come near us in the car. He had always been real friendly but the group of kids at my past apartment were loud and aggressive. The other night at my sisters with her kids, he snapped at their dad when he came home but he was fine the next day with him. He snapped at a friend of theirs that came over. I had him in public at a farmers market 3 days later and absolutely no problem. It's very confusing. He has actually gotten 2 people's hands but not even puncturing them. Usually he grabs clothing.
