My wife took our 10 month old to his first training session this evening one on one with a trainer. First, a little back story. At about 4 months old, he had a freak accident and broke his hind leg. Surgery, screws, pins. After spending the summer healing, we finally agreed on getting him training feeling he missed some crucial time. We feel he is a good dog. We had roughly 40 people over for Labor Day and he was awesome, no barking, no jumping, pretty relaxed. Nothing but compliments. Lately on walks in the neighborhood, he has barked at other dogs and sometimes other people. Tonight my wife gets home and says the trainer told her that my dog has issues with other dogs and people. He barks without fear behind it and doesn't back down causing concern about aggression. The trainer said the worst thing he did was look back at my wife as if to nip her while she was holding his leash and he was barking. She said that we might even consider contacting the breeder to see if they would take him back. I can't imagine doing that. Obviously floored by this. Anyone have any thoughts? Should I get a second opinion? I can't imagine this being near hopeless for him.
