Jusdy I've had Ivy for almost a year now and she is such a great dog. Though because of how she was raised as a puppy by her last owner she is extremely aggressive towards strangers and other dogs (she's more of a stay-at-home dog). I don't know what the man's problem was but she is such a cuddle bug with me and hasn't showed any aggression toward me. She can be over-protective whenever we go on a walk but other that I'm blessed to have her.

After a heated argument with the man, he threw his hands up in the air and left. After class was done, I walked out into the parking lot to find Ivy tied up on the bumper of my car (IDK how the man knew what was my car) and a stack of GSD paperwork on the windshield.

FortheLoveofChari That's sade but I'd look at the best interest of the dog. If he does call back, or even his wife they might apologize. But he also doesn't sound reasonable. ...poor puppy having to deal with someone who has no patience....

Chip18 Sorry,whole thing doesn't sound good.

Tratkins Not to mention that if the man is that grumpy with someone he just "met" over the phone, he probably would not have very much patience for a growing land shark pup.

It sounds to me like you will be doing an in-house job.

First job, evaluate the wife, and see if you can't get any other family members in on the job----at 86 years old, (and I'm assuming the wife will be close to the same age) you will want younger family members willing to take on the pup later for continuity of care.

Regard this as service dog training.
I refuse to work with him (he hung up on me), even if he comes back, which I doubt. I refuse to let people treat me this way and too bad if it means losing a client. It will be another matter if his kids call me to work with the old grump.
In aggression cases I work with a vet but in his case it will be useful to consult his family doctor.
