Yes, he is seven months. But when I talked with a trainer they said it would only get worse, the frustration would lead to aggression if I do not address it right away. I really hope mine stays friendly.

Thanks all ...
I am finally beginning to see the results of the training we have been doing the past couple of weeks. He is more focused on me, and this certainly helps, even if only at a distance...

How old is your dog? If he's still a puppy...you might just need to wait for him to mature and realize that he doesn't need to say hello to every dog out there. At the same time...training him yourself will help him realize that its more fun to play with you, or listen to you, than visit with a new dog.
It took my dog almost 2 years to get over trying to greet every dog in the world. He still loves to play...but its not as bad as it was when he was a pup. Tell you the truth, I love the fact that he loves other dogs and is friendly rather than aggressive and so it wasn't that big of an issue to wait for him to mature and for training to take affect.

For a pet dog, I think you can train it reliably at home. For competition level I'd agree someone like Carlos would be excellent.

I agree. He is good with ob, with guests at home and around people outdoors. However the one thing I really needed help with was the puppy being calm around dogs. I do take him for walks in the park, and I have been training him at a distance from other dogs. He also does very well when we are walking with another dog. He will approach calmly, ignore if we keep moving. But when we are walking alone and a dog comes close enough he gets superexcited. And I feel that if he learns to be calm around other dogs I will be able to keep the training up by myself . Ofcourse I could be wrong.

|MaggieRoseLee||Better to go WITH your dog to the training. There are two parts of the puzzle with dog training and only one is the dog. So if you send the dog to a great trainer, who already has the skills and knowledge of course your dog will learn. But unless that same trainer is coming home to live with you for the life of your dog, you are missing 1/2 the training|
