Chip18 No of course not! My very first dog I had an E val done, I thought he was a Dominant Aggressive Male, 'did a Eval turns out he was Dominant Male but just an A hole! I could deal with that! No dog parks,ignore other dogs!

Years later my GSD... yeah he was the real deal DAM dog!

If it's a sound dog it's,it's a sound dog nothing I've suggested is gonna change that.

Dog trainers and behaviorists love pet stores,dog park , and is your dog friendly folks! That's where most of their business comes from.

Next come the early socialization folks, that want to cram people into their dogs faces. Right dog with sound nerves, no problem! Wrong dog same approach...the dog is now scared of certain (whoever) people or floppy hats or wheel chairs, etc,etc. This approach with the wrong dog and you can create a fearful and submissive dogie.

The approach I chose was, I protected my dog, he did not have to chose who's good and who is bad or deal with "I thought my dog was friendly folks or strange dogs. He learned to view people and other dogs as furniture, I stepped in front of him if I spoke to someone,he learned that behind me was his place. He learned what normal human/dog interaction looks like.

He's safe in public and can be around other dogs without going nuts. He's not a dog park dog. Not worth the hassle for me.

No brilliant insight on my part. I had a people aggressive young dog. It was my believe that cramming a bunch of people in his face wasn't the answer? In my case with my dog I was right.*

Not saying your planned approach is wrong, just showing their is another approach to having a happy well adjusted dog!*

It doesn't hurt to have the dog evaluated. It's best to find out if it's genetics or just behavioral. It can be completely different training and management methods depending on what it is.

They have lots of experience with GSD's and they will evaluate him. It was the best decision I made with mine(he was reactive). I like it there so much I became a member. I see dogs with aggression and reactivity issues all the time. Some need to be muzzled and some just need strong leadership and management.

David Winners I'm sorry to hear about your trouble. If you include your location someone may be able to recommend a trainer. I think you need professional help with this.
