I have an 11 month old male GSD/Rottie mix, he has been with me since he was about 2.5 weeks old. His mother stopped feeding him so the lady who had the litter brought him to me. A week after I got him, he got really sick, and I found out that he had parvo. I brought him through it and now he is healthy and thriving. He is very intelligent, and listens to me very well, but there is a problem. He has aggression towards men. When a man he doesnt know approaches him, he barks, growls, and has even lunged at them. He behaves when leashed, as long as the man stays a good distance away, if they come too close, he goes into a guard mode and puts himself in front of me. He loves children and doesnt have issues with women, only with men. He is crate trained, and when someone comes over he goes nuts in his crate, and chews everything near his crate. What is the most successful way to house him, which kind of crate should i buy? Also what is the best way to get him out of the aggression?
