gsdsar My last male came up the leash at me. It was scary. But we got it sorted.

It sounds like it's a bit if dominance and resource guarding all wrapped into one. He had a high value "treat" and you progressively got more physical trying to take it, so he escalated as well.

I do think this is fixable. It was in my case. Which was different. My boy decided to come up the leash at me during obedience exercises, if I gave a correction at all he came at me. But in the end, he was the best dog ever. It was a leadership issue. I messed up his foundation and ended up confusing him with badly timed and poor corrections. Lesson learned.

Steve Strom So maybe you got a little angry along with going harder? Your emotion along with the physical correction can give him a whole different perception of it. I'm just guessing too K9Kane, but I think with the help of a good trainer working with you as far as overall obedience, it wont end up being a big deal.

He grabbed something off the ground on a walk, I firmly told him to out, he looked away from me, so I pretty firmly popped him with the prong collar, still nothing, so I went harder, and that's when he erupted.

PRetty harsh, and probably coming from someone who got their dog from the shelter or guy dwon the street.
You asked on a public forum. I gave my opinion and yes all 4 of my dogs came from a "shelter" or "rescue" so what?

apparently I'm not allowed to talk about PTS here so if you want you can start a new thread.
