Red face I need help!

My dog Max is a year old German Shepherd. She does not listen to me like I would like her to. I need someone who can train her. I have tried but I do not have a single clue on how to start. I am in the Kansas City area. Please help! She has become somewhat aggressive and I would really like her to be a personal protection dog. A trainer I talked to said she would be perfect. She known how to heel, sit, and shake. Stay is a little shaky

You need to find a trainer that will teach you how to train your dog. Getting someone else to train her is not the answer.

^^^^ This!

YOU need to train her, she is YOUR dog and it will strongly help build a bond between you and her and she will listen to you.

I agree with Castlemaid. Your pup, yes he is still a pup, needs to learn to respect you and you need to learn how to handle and correct your pup fearlessly. That will take both of you going to the trainer together.

You'll need a trainer that is not 100% positive training. You need someone with a good balanced approach between teaching positively and then correcting disobedience. Today my pup wanted to go play with another dog at the vet and no amount of happy talk or tasty treats would get him to focus back on me. It was embarrassing. I pulled him straight up by the collar and brought him out. Once we hit the sidewalk, he was all..."oh, hi, I remember you..."
