Trainer for socializing around humans and other dogs
 
Do you guys no any good trainers for my 11 week old german shepherd. He is very aggressive at times and is scared of people and other dogs.

Also any good socialization centers where i can take him to play with other dogs and people.

Thank you

You have 9 more weeks remaining in the imprinting stage, use these wisely. Better to take pup to Home Depot on a leash and walk around busy gas stations as opposed to taking pup to uncontrollable environments in the name of socialization and ruin him for life.

I would enroll in a very basic puppy class. Also take him for walks in the park or even at the pet store. Keep an eye on him and don't let him be approached until he is ready. If you know anyone with a real stable dog to be around that would be ideal. I believe the first few months are important but I also believe that window of opportunity is always open.
