Do you have a friend with a well trained dog that could help you with this? That might be better than taking him to a store.

|SiegersMom||NO you never mentioned breeding at all It has been awhile since I read back on this thread but I do not think you even indicated that your dog had and aggressive behavior. You just want to make sure you keep him that way. Some posters on here have given you some great advise. Just by educating yourself about how to proceed puts you on the right track. Good luck. TO : Chip18 Thanks for the link for on leash attacks. My dog completely ignores dogs on walks but that does not stop some from making a sneak attack from behind!!! So far just firmly telling a dog to go home has worked but you never know when one will be dangerous.|

Training is the key, if you do the video thing, get him to the point where he ignores other dogs first. Then at that point. You can have him stand behind you and give treats, let him know that's his place. If another dog is near you or charging you stand in front the other dog is targeting your dog not you!
Behind me is my dogs place with "encounters" but I was training that position with people not dogs but he learned that was his place (behind me). So one time under a two dog charging encounter I stepped in front and he "automatically" accepted that!
But by and large the situation you described should not occur, you step aside, cross the street avoid other dogs. Your goal is (in my opinion) a non reactive dog not a dog friendly dog!
You protect your dog that's your job. You allow other dogs to get in his face, then he has to decide good or bad dog? My dogs never had to chose but they learned what a normal dog/human inter action looked like.
And a day came with me and Rocky when the training did pay off, I slipped on ice under a persistent charging dog and went down..then Rocky stepped out and deterred the remaining attacker ! He "knew"..this ain't right!
You can't train your dog till you identify your goals. If your goal is a dog park friendly Dominate Male dog? I'll bow out cause I have no idea.
My Boxer(female) actually was a dog park dog. Nothing I did she was just out the Box a balanced dog. But she never did dog parks it was me not her. I don't put my dogs at risk with other dogs.

|HarleyTheGSD||What if a dog charges us? I know Varick would not take kindly to this. Is that bad? Would it be my fault? I've had dogs run after us, but they never got too close. Varick never showed any signs of aggression. He'd simply stare at them.|

I'm thinking next time I go into that petsmart I need to wear a t-shirt with my trainers logo and website listed on it.
