Trainer was here for 3 hours (wanted nothing) and sees nothing that warrants anything but a different approach to training. Wife has agreed to keep him and work it!! Hallelujia!

That is great news!!!! Is this trainer the one who was coming to possibly adopt? How nice for him/her to spend so much time evaluating the dog with you and helping you make a decision you and your wife are both comfortable with. Sounds like a good "dog person."

I wish you guys all the best and hope he responds well to the new training approach. No matter what, I think it is wonderful that you have decided to continue to work with Fritz to make him the best dog he can be!

I hope everything works out for both you and the dog. Sadly, this dog sounds like my Luther, exactly. WGSL, EXTREMELY fear aggressive from day 1, displayed almost the exact same behaviors your dog did from day one. Loved me and my dog to DEATH, hated other dogs and people. Did well with MOST people once he had a chance to bark and sniff, but he still had a history of a couple nips.

I eventually did euthanize at 3.5 years of age. Hardest decision I've ever made in my life. I don't know your dog, but I knew my Luther, and rehoming was NOT an option with him. Hopefully this situation turns out different, because I know how much I loved my Luther.

As far as the monks... that is an extremely unimpressive pedigree for the amount of money they charge. I'm guessing this dog cost 3,000$ +?

For the past eight years, I have had a human aggressive dog. He has to always be leashed on walks and when I entertained with large parties overseas, he would always be kept in a quiet room. I never took the risk of having him near children and I never leave him with others unless I am present to hand him over to the dog walker or the kennels where he sometimes stays. They are also given instructions to take care with him. However, he is much calmer now than the first five years.
