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

I have two questions I need advice or tips on. My dog has bad car anxiety. He shakes whines and pants. He also has fear aggression towards other dogs. I try to distract him with treats but it doesn't always work. Thank you

We just rescued a male 50 lb. mixbreed (lab, pointer, and we think pit). He loves people but is wary of other dogs. He gets along with those that he knows, but playing is always up in the air with ending terribly by him not liking another dog being too up in his business. I take him to work, where we have two other dogs that he gets along with very well (no playing!!). However, our office is ground floor downtown so he watches all of the people and cars go by.. and other dogs too. He gets very aggressive at dogs passing by. He'll bark, lunge, go nuts until the other dog passes by. It's scary. I've also noticed this behavior initiates when the other dog makes eye contact with him. I've been on his case constantly to not let him go near the door but that doesn't last very long. He keeps going back and it's very distracting to have to keep getting up. It's gotten to the point where I just keep his leash on and wrapped around my leg so he can't go to the door. What can I do to stop this behavior? I'd hate to have to leave him at home.

My dog has been going to a doggy day camp for over a year. He would be put in time out occasionally for mounting and occasionally snapping at another dog that would annoy him. But in the last couple of weeks he has started snapping and growling at certain dogs in the day camp and growling at men. My dog is neutered and normally a sweet loving dog. I took him to the vet and there is nothing medically wrong. I did have to put my mother in a board and care and she is no longer with us in the house, would her absence stress him out, he has been acting this way since she has been gone. What can I do.

How do I break my dog of animal aggression? He does not like other animals and most times he will tolerate them. There is those rare moments where he has tried to bite my cats. Usually it's around food or around his toys sometimes it's just because. Any tips or training you can point me in the direction of would be great! Thank you.

So I have a dog named tazo that I got as a puppy and she's very smart, she knows a lot of tricks like sit, shake, lay down, roll over and stuff like that, but I can't take her out anywhere because she barks and growls at anyone that gets near me, she's very protective of me and of our home with guests. She won't let any dogs near me, she will bite guests and is generally the leader with our other dogs. I'm scared of having to put her down. I don't know how to get her socialized enough to be able to take her out again without being aggressive. Thank you
